In spite of it being her birthday, New Year’s Day has always been Minnie Cooper’s least favorite time of the year. The day is seemingly jinxed, for each year, without fail, some misfortune befalls her on that day. Her unlucky New Year’s streak began at birth when her intended name, Quinn, was stolen by another mother at the hospital and given to her son, who was born only minutes before Minnie. Both Minnie and her mother are certain that had this wrong never occurred and had she been named Quinn Cooper, she would have lived a very lucky life. On her 30th birthday, Minnie finds herself face to face with the name thief himself, Quinn Hamilton, and just as she suspected, the name Quinn seems to have brought him nothing but good luck. He’s handsome, successful, and has a gorgeous girlfriend. As much as she wants to despise him though, she finds herself warming up to him and even enjoying his company. A friendship between the two forms, and as she learns more about Quinn’s past, she comes to see that his life isn’t as perfect as it seems at first glance. As the reader, we also discover that the two have unknowingly crossed paths multiple times throughout the years. For Minnie and Quinn, the question then becomes are the two fated to be more than just friends?
My Honest Review
I have nothing but good things to say about the book. You know that feeling you get when you just finish reading a really good book, I felt it a hundred times over.
I want to say thank you to netgalley and Arrow for giving me this ARC copy I absolutely enjoyed it.
Quinn and Minnie were both in a relationship when this book started. It didn’t start with each of them searching for love. Minnie has some self-esteem issues and Quinn was a bit jaded. I loved how Quinn coming into his life made him want to do something about how he was. You could see both characters growth in this book. It was so interesting to read. I loved the secondary characters in this book especially Leila she was the bomb. She is the best friend anyone would want in their life. It was such a fun and sweet read. Kudos to the author. I recommend this book to all my friends and everyone who loves romance. It is certainly worthy of a five star.
