Just My Luck by Adele Parks

 Release Date - April 6, 2021


Every week, Lexi, Jake, and their children gather with their close friends for meals, drinks, and socializing. During that gathering, they always chip in to buy a lottery ticket. For 15 years they've played the same numbers, but one evening brings an end to all of that when the other couples tell Lexi and Jake that they're done contributing.

Lexi buys a ticket with the same numbers and ends up winning millions. Now that she and Jake are multi-millionaires, the other couples are back in the picture and want their share. They deny ever backing out. And, they'll do anything to get their hands on the money.

It's so hard to like the couples in this book. Once the money comes into the picture, they all start crawling out of the woodwork. I didn't love Jake's character either. His immediate spending habits led to half the couple's issues.

The story is immediately aggravating and then it takes a turn that leads to it becoming even darker than first expected. It became a twisted read that was hard to put down.
