THE LUCKY ONE by Nicholas Sparks

After U.S. Marine Logan Thibault finds a photograph of a smiling young woman buried in the dirt during his tour of duty in Iraq, he experiences a sudden streak of luck — winning poker games and even surviving deadly combat. Only his best friend, Victor, seems to have an explanation for his good fortune: the photograph — his lucky charm.

Back home in Colorado, Thibault can’t seem to get the woman in the photograph out of his mind and he sets out on a journey across the country to find her. But Thibault is caught off guard by the strong attraction he feels for the woman he encounters in North Carolina – Elizabeth, a divorced mother — and he keeps the story of the photo, and his luck, a secret. As he and Elizabeth embark upon a passionate love affair, his secret soon threatens to tear them apart — destroying not only their love, but also their lives.

Would I recommend this book for...

Comments: This book made me want to love dogs. And the description of this solider had me drooling a bit. I love those strong silent types. :) This isn't totally a typical Sparks book because it ends a bit better. I do love this romance but this one leads to some very naughty, fairly graphic mommy-porn. That mixed with some pretty yucky circumstances makes me almost need to put this in the garbage bin. So be wary.
