Review: Love & Gelato and Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch

First of all, I’m so glad to be back reviewing books on the blog. I’m going to try to be more vigilant about doing this more often.

I read Love & Luck first because I’d just ordered it from Barnes & Noble and it takes place in Ireland! Not that I don’t LOVE Florence, but I was really feeling an Irish road trip. That being said, it helps a little to have read Love & Gelato before reading this one just to know the characters a little, but, honestly, I didn’t miss much from reading them out of order. Both of these books are cute, fluffy romances with issues that a lot of teens seem to be facing more and more, but with the twist of being in another country for the first time against their will. I really enjoyed the addition of the mom’s journal in Love & Gelato, and the guidebook in Love & Luck; it added that little extra something that just made me devour these books. I think I like Love & Gelato better, but ask me tomorrow and I may have a different answer. Overall, they were enjoyable, quick reads that will definitely satisfy your wanderlust this summer!

So the reason I didn’t totally fall in love with either of these books fully is because LaG ended a little too perfectly with them saying they were in love with each other in less than a week, and LaL ended without the MC even getting to kiss her love interest! If the author had found a balance between those for both books but in slightly different ways, I would absolutely adore these. But each book takes place in a favorite spot of mine, and so I really couldn’t help but love it.
