Book Review: Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur (ARC)
"Following Written in the Stars and Hang the Moon, national bestselling author Alexandria Bellefleur pens another steamy queer rom-com about former best friends who might be each other's second chance at love…
Margot Cooper doesn’t do relationships. She tried and it blew up in her face, so she’ll stick with casual hookups, thank you very much. But now her entire crew has found "the one" and she’s beginning to feel like a fifth wheel. And then fate (the heartless bitch) intervenes. While touring a wedding venue with her engaged friends, Margot comes face-to-face with Olivia Grant—her childhood friend, her first love, her first… well, everything. It’s been ten years, but the moment they lock eyes, Margot’s cold, dead heart thumps in her chest.
Olivia must be hallucinating. In the decade since she last saw Margot, her life hasn’t gone exactly as planned. At almost thirty, she’s been married... and divorced. However, a wedding planner job in Seattle means a fresh start and a chance to follow her dreams. Never in a million years did she expect her important new client’s Best Woman would be the one that got away.
When a series of unfortunate events leaves Olivia without a place to stay, Margot offers up her spare room because she’s a Very Good Person. Obviously. It has nothing to do with the fact that Olivia is as beautiful as ever and the sparks between them still make Margot tingle. As they spend time in close quarters, Margot starts to question her no-strings stance. Olivia is everything she’s ever wanted, but Margot let her in once and it ended in disaster. Will history repeat itself or should she count her lucky stars that she gets a second chance with her first love?"

🌈 Alexandria Bellefleur has hit a hatrick of amazing books! 🌈
I don’t think I’ve ever signed up to a blog tour quicker than I did for this one! Alexandria Bellefleur is one of my favourite authors and I have loved her writing since reading Written in the Stars! These books have been so important to me, especially with figuring out my own identity and it has been amazing seeing myself reflected in such beautiful stories!
In Count Your Lucky Stars we follow Margot & Olivia as they realise that they might have a second chance at first love. I absolutely loved the chemistry between them! They were so funny and I really enjoyed the aspect of them having to get to know each other all over again. Margot has been such an amazing character from the very first book and it was so lovely to see her love story! Olivia is such a great addition to our list of characters and I really enjoyed seeing her figure out what she wants and what she deserves. Plus the fact that her cat is named “Cat” after Breakfast At Tiffany’s is the best!
Once again the writing is absolutely INCREDIBLE! I fall back in love everytime and can’t put the book down! There is the perfect balance of angst, steam and fun in this book and it will also give you all of the feels! The astrology elements are so cute, I've really enjoyed checking for my sign in each one!
I also love how the characters from the previous instalments are also part of the book and we get to see how they are getting on. I love it so much when romance books do this and it just makes for the PERFECT trilogy!
Also I just need to appreciate how BEAUTIFUL this cover is! The whole trilogy is stunning inside and out - all three books have cemented their place at the top of my forever favourite list! I guess it’s no surprise that this is a million out of five rainbow read for me!
Count Your Lucky Stars is the perfect romance right in time for Valentines day! Thank you so much for having me on the tour!
