Book Review: LIFE IN THE LUCKY ZONE by Patricia B. Tighe

Life in the Lucky Zone (The Zone #2)
by Patricia B. Tighe
Publication Date:  April 5, 2016
Publisher:  Swoon Romance

Seventeen-year-old Lindsey Taylor has been living a charmed life—always the lead in school plays, possessor of a healthy entourage and a hot boyfriend. But halfway through her junior year, the unthinkable happens. Her boyfriend dumps her. She screws up her audition for the spring play. And to top it all off, her theater teacher wants her to run lines with Trey Berger, a gamer guy who irritates her practically every time he opens his mouth. Lindsey needs to find some better luck and quick.

Trey Berger can barely tolerate Lindsey Taylor. It’s bad enough that their best friends are dating and he has to see Lindsey at group hangouts. Now they have to rehearse together. Berger would rather do just about anything else, even chill with his grandmother, whose dementia has forced her to move in with his family.

But as the semester continues, Berger discovers there’s more to Lindsey than the drama queen

persona she puts on for everyone else’s benefit. And the person behind the mask might be someone he cares about. A lot. So what exactly is he going to do about it?

And while Lindsey desperately tries to change her luck and heal from the breakup, she slowly realizes Berger has become her best friend. This video-game-playing boy makes her laugh. And holds her when she cries. Could he possibly become something more?

I absolutely adored this book! It's just as good as it's predecessor, Life in the No-Dating Zone. One would think, how could Tighe carry on the sweet story of Claire and Gray... by carrying on a contemporary romance between their best buddies, Lindsey & Berger.

That's right - total polar opposites, Lindsey (popular girl) and Berger (gamer boy). But this isn't your stereotypical opposites attract -- I love how Tighe sucks us in with Lindsey recovering from her recent breakup (oh come on, no one liked him) and Berger's hidden passion for drama club. When Berger has a chance at a part and Lindsey is made to tutor him, so begin the sparks...

Okay, so not quite that easy, but to find out more you'll have to read this for yourself!!

I definitely give Life in the Lucky Zone 5 stars.
Don't miss out!!

The mother of two grown sons, Patricia B. Tighe lives in West Texas with her husband and two dogs. She eats too much pizza, drinks too much coffee, and watches way too much NFL football. On the bright side, she loves to read and write young adult fiction. Especially if there’s kissing involved.
