What I Loved:
The characters in this book were fabulous! I loved how the author’s writing could develop a character so well.
How I Felt:
The relationships in Lucky Caller were wonderful. I really enjoyed Nina and her father’s relationship. The struggles they had felt so real and I liked that. The romance was a friends to lovers trope and I found it wonderful. Emma Mills truly knows how to grow a relationship through her words!
The dialogue was amazing! I found the character’s banter fascinating and I laughed a lot while reading. I truly could have just sat in a room with them and listened to them go back and forth.
I would have liked to see a few more things get wrapped up at the the end of this book. There were some story lines that I felt were left open-ended and I would love to know what happens next for them.
Overall, this book left me with a happy, fluffy feeling, which is just what I want out of a book like this. I loved the writing and the characters and felt like I could continue to hang out with them through another book…hint hint…a second book would be awesome.
To Read or Not To Read:
If you enjoy a friends to lovers trope and YA, this is a perfect book for you! It gives you all the happy feels that you want and leaves you on a cloud.
Where To Find This Book:
Lucky Caller by Emma Mills is available at these sites.
With the warmth, wit, intimate friendships, and heart-melting romance she brings to all her books, Emma Mills crafts a story about believing in yourself, owning your mistakes, and trusting in human connection in Lucky Caller.
When Nina decides to take a radio broadcasting class her senior year, she expects it to be a walk in the park. Instead, it’s a complete disaster.
The members of Nina’s haphazardly formed radio team have approximately nothing in common. And to maximize the awkwardness her group includes Jamie, a childhood friend she’d hoped to basically avoid for the rest of her life.
The show is a mess, internet rumors threaten to bring the wrath of two fandoms down on their heads, and to top it all off Nina’s family is on the brink of some major upheaval.
Everything feels like it’s spiraling out of control―but maybe control is overrated?
