**Warning** Mature content, contains abuse.

This story is amazing. I couldn't put it down after starting.

We meet Penny, who was put in foster system after her parents died in a car crash she survived. She was a scared young girl, lost and upset. Until she meet Blake, one of the boys who was in the foster home. They became fast friends, sneaking out of the house to No Mans Land, to watch the stars. Their love grew for each other. They spent as much time as they could together. Until one day Blake disappeared. She worked odd end jobs, trying to have enough money to pay for her rent in egg roll smelling flat. It all changed, one summer when she joined Camp Chance, her life was turned upside down for the better.

We meet Blake, who has been in the foster system for years after his mother died and his dad ended up in prison. He didn't like that more girls was coming into the house, resented when he heard a new girl joined the house. But that all changed when he saw the broken girl in front of him, who wrapped her arms around herself like she was going to fall apart if she didn't hug herself.

This story is simply amazing. You couldn't help but feel for Blake and Penny, and cheer them on hoping it will end happy.

I recommend this story to everyone who loves happily ever afters and second chances.

3 1/2 stars.

I enjoyed the storyline of this book. 2 foster care kids who help each other survive the ill treatment and abuse handed out from their foster carers. As Blake and Penny mature so does their feelings for one another. Both praying for the day that turn 18 and can leave the care system for good and be together.
As it normally does, fate steps in and they are torn apart with no warning and with no explanation. For 7 years, Blake and Penny cling onto life without their soul mate. Forcing themselves to carry on and try to survive. When they meet as counsellors at a summer camp for foster kids they slowly come to realise that neither were given the full and honest reasons of how and why they lost touch.
I won't go into other details in the second half of this book which would help explain my 3 1/2 star rating for this story. That would give huge spoilers. I will say that there are parts of the reasons given for their separation make no sense to me. Blake's character is a strong, take no nonsense, determined young man who would not allow some of the situations to remain unanswered and basically to give up so easily.I really feel his full character would not have accepted things quite so easily. This character in particular would have pulled me in more if his strong will and determination had been continued throughout. I liked this book but sadly didn't love it.

This is the story of Blake and Penny who met in foster care when children. They helped each other survive, and made plans for the future. When Blake disappears, Penny is left devastated. Years later Blake re enters Penny’s life.
I enjoy this author’s unique writing style. This story is told in a dual POV, of Penny in the present, and Blake in the past, which is intriguing. I was hooked from the very beginning, and look forward to reading more of this authors work in the future. Recommend to all lovers of second chance romances!

Lucky Penny By L A Cotton

Reviewed for Your Next Hot Read By Wendy

This book is amazing The emotions in this book was written absolutely beautifully and the story flowed brilliantly,

LA Cotton is a very talented writer the story is told from Penny's POV and the past is told by Blake's POV,

And some of the secondary characters are written brilliantly too,

It all starts when Penny is taken to stay with her new foster parents Marie and Derek after the death of her parents, Sad shy and very emotional Penny becomes friends with a 12 year old boy name Blake who instantly has feeling for her, he feels he needs to care for her and make her feel happy,

Has there young relationship carries on Blake shows penny how to snake in and out of there foster home after lights out, where they spent hours staring up into the night sky full of stars in what they called No Mans Land,

Has their relationship grew and they only add 18 month before they come of age and could leave the foster parents home Blake got taken away by is only uncle, leaving Penny behind .

Fast forward 7 years Penny as a chance to help some children living in foster care at a chance camp, where she would be there counsellor,

But one night sat round the campfire Blake appears,

Could they rekindle their relationship from years ago, ?

All Penny wants to do is turn and run from the only person she has ever loved,

Blake has never stopped loving his lucky Penny, and will do everything with in his power to not lose her twice,

I’m a huge fan of L. A. Cotton’s writing, and have loved the two series’ she’s released, so when I found out she was releasing a stand alone, I jumped at the chance to read it. I admit, I put it off for a while as I didn’t want to get sucked in and read it too quickly, but when I did finally start it, that’s exactly what happened.

I am so envious of the way Cotton is able to write characters that are so real and who jump off the page to sit next to you while you read about them. Penny and Blake (along with the secondary characters) aren’t perfect, and that’s what makes them so believable.

We meet Penny as she’s deciding to make changes to her life. She’s tired of existing and wants to start make the changes so she can start living. This begins with signing up to be a camp councillor at Camp Chance. When she arrives, she’s nervous and unsure about what will happen, but she starts to make friends. Then Blake shows up.

Penny and Blake have history, quite a complicated one, stemming from when they were in a foster home together. They were each other’s crutches and support system, until Blake left without ever contacting Penny again.

The book is mostly told from Penny’s point of view, with Blake’s injected in now and then to provide the essential back story that details these character’s lives. I liked the way Cotton did this as it wasn’t confusing, and gave the reader so much more than if it had just been told from Penny’s POV.

While overall, this is quite a sad story, there’s hope woven throughout, and you find yourself rooting for Penny and Blake to rekindle their love for each other, particularly once Brittany is on the scene.

Not without it’s twists and turns, Lucky Penny is, at heart, a romance story. A great read and a wonderful stand alone.
