Treat yourself to an "outrageously sexy" (Entertainment Weekly), "fabulously fun" (Jill Shalvis) second-chance romance from the New York Times bestselling queen of hockey romance!
Lilah isn't sure what hurt worse: the day Ethan left her to focus on his hockey career or the day he came back eight years later. He might think they can pick up just where they left off, but she's no longer that same girl and never wants to be again.
Ethan wants his glory days back. And that includes having Lilah by his side. With her, he was magic. They were magic. All he has to do is make her see that.
Just when Lilah might finally be ready to let Ethan in, though, she finds out their reunion might have nothing to do with love and everything to do with improving his game. But Ethan's already lost her once, and even if it costs him his career, he'll do anything to keep from losing her again.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Novelist Helena Hunting knows how to keep us turning pages. Her signature warmth and risqué wit is on full display in The Good Luck Charm, a sexy, sweet take on first loves and second chances. One of our very favorite things about this charming romp is the dueling perspectives of the book’s delightfully imperfect central characters, Lilah and Ethan. The pair’s drive to succeed is matched only by their unbridled passion for each other.
Hunting (Getting Down) sparkles in this well-plotted contemporary about a struggling and superstitious hockey player, his devastated ex-lover, and the hope and joy of second chances. Just after NHL player Ethan Kase is traded from Chicago to his home state of Minnesota, his cantankerous father has a stroke and Ethan comes face-to-face with his biggest regret: Delilah Jane, the childhood sweetheart he abandoned eight years earlier. Now a nurse in their hometown of Forest Lake, Lilah sees Ethan's father being admitted to the hospital and knows that Ethan's arrival won't be far behind. Ethan knows that breaking up with Lilah was the biggest mistake he ever made, but he begins trying to woo her back. But having been abandoned first by her father and then by Ethan, Lilah's not sure she wants to try again especially when she finds out Ethan may just see her as a good luck charm. Hunting imbues her characters, especially Lilah, with quick wit and enjoyable depth, and the curveball she throws into the plot at the end is truly surprising, yet believable. Lively supporting characters, including Lilah's sassy sister, Carmen, add fun to the mix. Readers will hope for a return to Forest Lake.

A fun Second chance Romance
Well written. Funny yet emotional and totally sucked me in. I couldn’t wait to see what happened in the end and yet I wanted to savor the book.
5 AMAZING STARS 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I want to applaud Helena on her new release and amazing work as an author. <3
I loved this book soooo hard! Helena has the amazing ability of writing swoony alpha heroes.
This is a new standalone that is different than her other work. It surrounds the hockey love and humor we’ve read about in her Pucked series with a hint of angst from her Clipped Wings series.
I’m a sucker for second-chance novels and this book seriously blew me away. <3 The love I felt throughout the book was so warming.
Helena does an awesome job at writing genuine, true characters that deal with real life issues/feelings. The story alone takes you through a whirl-wind of emotions that remind you why true love is so special, and why sacrifice can be so heartbreaking.
This story is not all rainbows and sunshine’s. It’s about heartbreak, second chances, and sacrifice.
The Good Luck Charm is hands down my favorite <3
More Than Luck
Eight years ago, Ethan broke Lilah’s heart when broke up with her. Over the phone. They had been each other’s everything—childhood besties and high school lovers. But when Ethan got drafted into the NHL, he left her behind. Now he’s back and he wants her back, but she’s not the same girl he left behind and he has his work cut out for him. This had heartbreak, hope and fear of loss, as well as humor. At the core was the love of two souls who were broken apart and the seeking one another out. Tremendous read!
