I loved the love story between Kalin and Danae, and watching it slowly develop. I loved the contrast between what love should be and what love is not. What I loved more was the mini-sermons in the emails between them that are sure to inspire every person that reads this book! Whether it's reaching for the dream that God gave you, wanting to be the door instead of a window, living another person's dreams for your life, trying to take the wheel of the bus from God and drive it yourself or settling for good when God wants to give you the best... we have ALL been there and can see a different way through this book. Just reading this book has me looking for the x-better while accepting that God may have me where I am now to get ready for it... just by reading a sweet love story! Does some of this review sound cryptic? Read this story and it will make so much sense! I was given a copy of this book for my honest review.Was this review helpful?

The book ‘Lucky’ is a great story centered on love but more importantly woven around characters that struggle with their past, present and future.
The author knows just how to weave the intricacies of the story – it is like you are watching a movie and waiting patiently not to fast-forward it! How she does it – beats my imagination! I guess that is what they call – TALENT!
The arrangement of the story line is just superb – considering the patterned arrangement of the emails inflow not to talk of the ideas infused into it – you just feel the emotions right with the character! And it is so simple to read and so divine to understand!
The story line and reactions of the characters to real life situation is as I would put it WOW – Look at this “Yes, he had messed up. Yes, she was furious about that. But there was no doubt he was indeed trying to make up for the mistakes he had made and trying to do it better this time. Swiping at the tears, she laid her fingers on the keyboard and typed the first message she had sent him three months.” It is so beautifully put in and you seem to feel along lines of the character – you see a way to resolving situations in a manner of arranging or looking at facts as they are and understanding the personae and the reasons given for an act! A paragraph that makes the reader sit-up and unwind over certain past situations and wishing one can unwind! God, Staci, Tell you what? You did a beautiful work there!
Also the imagery given each time you see “twisting the wristband,” an unconscious act of Kalin hits the button across as the reader meets a real life character! One really emotional person who though great but REAL – this unconscious act of Kalin talks about his inner tumults and struggling!
One of the major subject matter I think in the book is accepting a person for who he is I think is in this book. Even though the author used the protagonist (Danae) to air this fact, you see when it came to reality in her action, she simply backed off. But at the point of reconciliation, that was what she had to face and I think it is to drive home the message when she said: “I see now that you are Kalin, and that if I love some of you, I have to love all of you—the past, the present, and the future.”
And another theme is that a person can truly change and remained so when love and faith is placed on him! How much the world will be a better place if that can be driven to all men!
Take my hands off the wheel.
The author has a way of pulling the reader to be a part of what seems to be happening as he reads along! That I say is a PLUS Staci. You know – I really caught myself saying ‘Wow-oh with Danae! Thanks for making our little world interesting as we read your books. And I had a real laugh when I read ““Dear Lord, If I’m ever stupid enough to let him go again, would You please slap me?”
And by the way, the reason it took so long to reply was because I went back to read the COWBOY through in two day and it was just Wow!
