Review: Luck on the Line by Zoraida Cordova


To turn her life around, she’ll have to stand the heat. To fulfill his dreams, he’ll have to get Lucky.

Despite her name, Lucky Pierce has always felt a little cursed. Refusing to settle for less or settle down, she changes jobs as often as she changes boyfriends. When her celebrity chef mother challenges her to finish something, Lucky agrees to help her launch Boston’s next hot restaurant, The Star. Even if it means working with the infuriating, egotistical, and undeniably sexy head chef.

James loves being known as Boston’s hottest bad boy in the kitchen, but if he wants to build a reputation as a serious chef, he has to make this restaurant work and keep his scandalous past out of the headlines. Getting involved with his boss’s spoiled, sharp-tongued daughter is definitely not on the menu.

As the launch of The Star looms and the tension and chemistry heat up in the kitchen, they’re going to need more than a little luck to keep everything from boiling over.

Publication Date: November 11, 2014

This was a cute read with a very likable heroine. I liked the love/hate relationship between the main character Lucky and bad boy chef James. Besides a sexy romance, Luck on the Line is a coming of age story about Lucky figuring out what she should do with the rest of her life.

Lucky is a heroine that I easily found relatable. She’s opinionated and doesn’t shy away from conflict. Although she’s not afraid to stand up for herself, Lucky is struggling to find her place in the world. She’s floated from job to job without figuring out what she wants to do with the rest of her life.

The romance was great in this book. I love stories that feature characters who start out hating each other, but then realize they’re only fighting their undeniable chemistry. The romance was a heavy focus in the plot, but I still felt like the author took enough time to develop Lucky’s character. However, I would’ve liked more insight into Lucky’s relationship with her mom in order to understand her mother’s actions.

Overall, Luck on the Line is a cute romance with a lot of funny one-liners. I did enjoy the author’s writing style, so I’ll definitely be checking out more of her books.

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Thanks to the publisher for a copy of the novel for review!
