Author: Cary Hart
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Friends to Lovers
Release Date: August 7, 2019
‘Getting lucky’ is a phrase I could barely say without blushing… 
Yep! I’m that girl. The one my friends call goody two shoes…
But…good girls don’t finish first. THEY—GET—DUMPED. Even after investing—no, wasting—six years of their life on the guy who was supposed to be the one. 
So…I traded in my halo for a pair of horns!
Hello, world…Clover Kelly is single and ready to mingle!
Then it happened, I suddenly found myself starring in the dating game to beat all dating games.
While pouring out my heart to my best friend, my new quest for lust is accidentally broadcast live…ON THE RADIO! Yay, me!
Did I mention my best friend is an uber famous radio personality…and a guy? A really hot guy? Yeah, his face isn’t plastered all over town simply for his name…
When the requests to win my heart came pouring in and became date after horribly bad date – I couldn’t help but wonder… 
Could he? Could we? I mean I’m already breaking all the rules. 
What’s a girl gotta do to get lucky?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

This is a super cute best friends romance! Clover is a planner. She has a binder of the steps to take in life to ensure she gets her HEA. But when her boyfriend dumps her the night she thinks he’s going to propose, Clover finds herself single and homeless and bunking with her best friend, Austin.

Austin has been her best friend since they were kids, and there’s never been any sexual attraction between them. That is, until Clover moves in, and he sees her naked. Then he can’t get her out of his mind. Clover accidentally broadcasting her rant about being unlucky in love on Austin’s satellite radio show leads to a dating experiment that has her excited to try the eggs (Great Runaway Bride reference!) and Austin ticked off that no guy is good enough for her.

These characters are hysterical, including his sister Mallory, her best friend CJ and his friend Owen. All it takes is a pretend kiss, dream sex, 53 speeddates and a few other mishaps for Clover to realize that her HEA has been standing next to her ever since they were kids.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Cary Hart hails from the Midwest. A sassy, coffee drinking, sometimes sailor swearing, Spotify addict, lover of all things books!


When not pushing women down the stairs in the fictional world, Cary has her hands full. Soccer mom in all sense of the word to two wild and crazy, spoiled kiddos, and wife to the most supportive husband. In addition to writing full time, she enjoys binge watching Netflix, laying around in her hammock and baking up cookies for her family and friends.
Cary writes real, raw romance! In her stories the characters deal with life’s everyday struggles and unwanted drama, they talk about the ugly and they become the broken. Everyone deserves a happy ending, but sometimes before you can appreciate the light, there has to be darkness. 
Growing up, if someone would have told her she would become a writer, she wouldn’t have believed them. It wasn’t until she got her hands on her first romance novel, that the passion grew. Now she couldn’t imagine her life any other way – she’s living her dream.
