Review: Luck of the Draw (Chance of a Lifetime #2) by Kate Clayborn

Buying a lotto ticket with her two best friends didn’t change Zoe’s life. Only following her heart would do that...

Sure, winning the lottery allows Zoe Ferris to quit her job as a cutthroat corporate attorney, but no amount of cash will clear her conscience about the way her firm treated the O’Leary family in a wrongful death case. So she sets out to make things right, only to find gruff, grieving Aiden O’Leary doesn’t need—or want—her apology. He does, however, need something else from her. Something Zoe is more than willing to give, if only to ease the pain in her heart, a sorrow she sees mirrored in his eyes...
Aiden doesn’t know what possesses him to ask his family’s enemy to be his fake fiancée. But he needs a bride if he hopes to be the winning bid on the campground he wants to purchase as part of his beloved brother’s legacy. Skilled in the art of deception, the cool beauty certainly fits the bill. Only Aiden didn’t expect all the humor and heart Zoe brings to their partnership—or the desire that runs deep between them. Now he’s struggling with his own dark truth—that he’s falling for the very woman he vowed never to forgive.

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!

This is the second in the Chance of a Lifetime series and I enjoyed it just as much as the first one, perhaps even more.  I was swept up in Zoe and Aiden's story right from the get-go  I have to admit I am a fan of the fake relationship storyline as you always know that drama and feeling will unfold.

As someone who has grown up every summer in a campground (in addition to most of my adult life), this story really resonated with me.  I could identify with the nostalgia of it and it made me in turn enjoy the story further.

I also identified with Zoe.  I too work in a high pressure job that sometimes conflicts with who I am as a person.  Not to the extent of Zoe however enough to understand her conflicts.

Then there is the tension and obvious attract between Zoe and Aiden.  You couldn't miss it and I enjoyed the ride it took me on as their feelings began to change for each other.  I will not disclose more, you have to read the story to know.

All in all I had a good time with this book.  I can't wait to read the third story when it is released.
