Blog Tour: Review, Teaser & giveaway: The Luckiest by Wendy Owens

Once upon a time Mackenzie Phillips thought she’d found her happily
ever after. She had married her high school sweetheart and had started
her perfect family. But one tragic night Mac’s perfect life was ripped
away from her, leaving her beautiful fairy tale existence in ruins.

When everything worth living for is suddenly taken from you, how do
you keep going? People told her how lucky she was just to be alive
after that night, but she didn’t agree.

Years passed with Mac living in a fog, until another unfortunate turn
of events placed her world on its head once again. Now, still carrying
the tender wounds of her past, this widow has to face the realities of
life again.

Broken and truly alone, she must find work. In walks her new employer,
Dean Johnson, a guy who is just broken enough himself, that she thinks
he might actually be able to understand her. But Mac soon discovers
that that bond with Dean may instead force her to face demons she
isn’t yet ready to deal with.

**Contains mature material including language and sex


Let’s discuss the level of emotion that just the prologue caused? I mean, holy crap. This is quite possibly the most emotional beginning of a book I have read in a long while. But it was so good and right away I was able to sympathize with the character. I was able to “meet her where she was.”

But right away we see Mac get out of her shell and start to live her life. We meet Dean and, quite frankly, he wasn’t really all that nice in the beginning. But they both begin to change and grow, but obviously have some drawbacks.

This story took me on a roller coaster of emotions. I found that I fell for Dean, I continued to feel for Mac, and I really loved Christian!
