Alexandria Bellefleur Count Your Lucky StarsCount Your Lucky Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur is the third book in the Written in the Stars Series.

Margot Cooper isn’t interested in relationships or anything resembling a long term commitment. She put her heart on the line once and it got torn to shreds, so she prefers the no-strings-attached and drama-free hookups. But there’s just one problem—her closest friends have found their soulmates and she feels like the odd one out every time they hang out. Just when Margot thought that her life couldn’t get any more complicated than it already was, fate intervenes by bringing her face to face with a blast from her past. She was touring a wedding venue with her engaged friends when she locked eyes with Olivia Grant—her former best friend and first love. Even though they haven’t seen each other for ten years, Margot is still drawn to Olivia in every sense of the word.

Olivia is shaken to the core. It’s been a decade since she last saw Margot and her life has taken so many unexpected twists and turns. Olivia’s almost thirty and she is starting over from scratch because she’s been married and now she is divorced. Her luck changed for the better when she got a job as a wedding planner in Seattle because it was a new beginning that came with a lot of opportunities. She never thought that her new client’s Best Woman would be the same woman who has always owned her heart.

Olivia is trying her best to get over the shock of seeing Margot again when a couple of unforeseen circumstances leaves her without a place to stay. Margot does the unthinkable—she offers up her spare bedroom to Olivia just because it’s the right thing to do. Her offer has nothing to do with the fact that there’s still a lot of sizzling chemistry between her and Olivia after all these years. As they spend more time together, the deeper their connection becomes and Margot wants way more than a casual hookup with Olivia. Margot had opened her heart to Olivia once and their budding relationship or whatever she thought they had at that time, had turned into a hot mess.

Will Margot and Olivia get the happily-ever-after they’ve always desired or will their second chance at love end in heartbreak?

Pros And My Favourite Parts

Alexandria Bellefleur definitely deserves the highest of fives for creating this super cute and hilarious novel! Count Your Lucky Stars ticked all the right boxes on my romantic checklist because this story is tender, lighthearted, steamy and laugh-out-loud funny. I will always have a soft spot for second-chance romances and this book will go down in herstory as one of my favorite reads because I adored the pansexual representation and the strong emphasis on the importance of friendship. Olivia, Margot and her friends were so adorable and easy to love and I couldn’t get enough of the witty banter between them. Plus, I love how the author portrayed the mutual pining and sexual tension between Margot and Olivia. Wicked wink!

Even though Count Your Lucky Stars is the third book in the series, it can be read as a stand-alone because the author has done a fabulous job with filling in all the important bits of information from the previous books. But if you would like to get more character background about Margot, Darcy, Elle, Brendon and Annie, then I’d suggest that you start with the first book.

Cons And Heads Up

Zero complaints.

Excerpt from Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur

All the air left Margot’s lungs in a punched-out exhale as soon as she locked eyes with the statuesque blond across the room.

Olivia Grant. Holy shit.

Olivia’s pouty, lush lips parted, mirroring Margot’s shock. An abundance of tawny hair spilled out from beneath her dark red beanie, tumbling down her back in soft waves, longer than Margot remembered. For a moment, Margot was too tongue-tied to speak.

Elle’s forehead furrowed, and Margot coughed.

“Olivia.” Her voice actually cracked. Kill her now. “Right. I thought you looked…familiar.” Familiar. Ha. Familiar was for acquaintances. Not whatever the hell they once were. “It’s, um, Olivia Taylor now, right?”

Not that Margot had looked Olivia up online or anything. Not that she’d specifically not looked, either. Maybe she’d taken a peek at her Facebook profile, but only because it had popped up under suggested friends. Margot hadn’t sent her a friend request or anything like that. They weren’t friends. Not anymore. Olivia whatever-her-last-name-was was just someone Margot used to know.

Someone Margot had once spent the better part of a week with naked, tangled up in the sheets of Olivia’s childhood bed, wringing multiple orgasms out of her, until Margot’s jaw had ached and Olivia’s voice had grown horse. Five days that were, arguably, the best of Margot’s life, full of toe-curling sex and laughter that made her stomach hurt. The start of something, a new chapter between them, one where Margot didn’t have to spend another second secretly pining for her best friend because all her feelings were returned.

Or so she’d thought.

“It was.” Olivia coughed and clasped her hands in front of her for a brief moment before dropping them back to her sides where they dangled loosely, like she didn’t know what to do with them. “It’s Grant again.”

Margot’s eyes dropped to Olivia’s left hand, her ring finger bare.



“Wait.” Brendon pointed between the both of them, looking confused. “You two know each other?”

Color rose in Olivia’s cheeks, and Margot remembered tracing the southward spread of that blush with her fingertips, tasting it with her tongue, Olivia’s skin soft as satin and hot beneath Margot’s lips. For a split second, Margot went dizzy, blood rising to the surface of her skin, mimicking Olivia’s flush.

Know each other. Margot swallowed hard. You could say that.

“Olivia and I go way back.” Back to Girl Scouts and slumber parties and double-dog dares and pinky promises made beneath the stars. Promises that had been long since forgotten, broken. “It’s been, what, eleven years?”

Olivia’s hazel eyes rounded as she met Margot’s stare across the room. “Give or take. We, um, we went to school together,” she said, words rushing out of her in a jumble. “In Enumclaw.”

“Damn.” Brendon’s eyes darted between them. “Talk about serendipity, right?”

Margot forced out a chuckle.

The universe was playing a cosmic joke on her, that was for sure.
