Title: Chasing Lucky
Author: Jenn Bennett
Publication date: April 7, 2020
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
In this coming-of-age romance perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Sarah Dessen, a rule-abiding teen embraces her more rebellious side while falling for her ex-boyfriend’s arch-nemesis.
Josie Saint-Martin is well-versed in the art of concealment. Bullied as a child, she’s spent most of her life with her single mother, moving from city to city, covering up what she doesn’t want others to see, comfortable behind the lens of her favorite vintage camera . . .until Josie’s grandmother dies and they return to her mother’s historical New England hometown to run the family bookstore. There, Josie pulls off the ultimate camouflage: dating Adrian, the Harvard-bound son of the most influential man in town.
But her smokescreen is blown when Adrian breaks up with her during his high school graduation party, and Josie’s poorly executed act of revenge lands her big-time trouble—jail alongside the last person she’d want to share a mugshot with: the mysterious and brooding son of the boat mechanic next door, Lucky Karras.
Forced to spend the summer together in mandatory community service, Josie and Lucky become the talk of their coastal town—shamed, trolled, and publicly disgraced. The weird thing is, Josie starts to not mind, because the pair have more in common than she once thought. A lot more. But during a summer of secrets, in a town built on gossip, everything rises to the surface. Can Josie and Lucky swim past these obstacles, or will they both go down together?

Wow, Jenn Bennett is on a ROLE lately! She just comes out with one book after another! How does she do it? I have so many to catch up on, my last read by her was Starry Eyes and I LOVED it. I have copies of Serious Moonlight and The Lady Rogue, but had no idea that she was coming out with this one as well.
Hahaha, she is definitely making us booklovers so happy with all her releases.
I just noticed that I used the wrong spelling for roll. I said role instead of roll… I knew it looked weird!! I love her writing, so I’m good with it!
I knew what you meant 🙂
I have not read a Jenn Bennett book yet, but this cover is gorgeous.
