Of Happiness by Olivia Luck

Of Happiness by Olivia Luck

“Now that I have you, I’m never letting you go.”

Edith Neff relocated to Chicago to capture her own piece of happiness. Now bombarded with more change than she knows how to manage, Eddie struggles to pick of the pieces of her torn heart and decimated friendship.

Standing in the middle of a sidewalk while her (ex?) boyfriend Harris Grant pleads for forgiveness, Eddie’s at a loss what to do next. So when her estranged father provides a lifeline – she has no option than to take his offer.

But Harris won’t let Eddie go without a fight. He’ll use whatever tactics necessary to win back his girl. While Eddie and Harris find their way back together, darkness lurks, unwilling to relent on destroying their relationship. Permanently.

Note: Of Happiness is the sequel to In Pursuit. Content intended for readers 18+.

“And who do we have here?” she murmurs. Harris’ head snaps up and he twists his body around, his expressive gray eyes filled with confusion. Somehow, I speak up. “I’ve come to collect my things. I’m moving out.” “Edith.” The word comes out on a defeated exhale. With a beseeching gaze, Harris stands up and takes a halting step toward us, then pauses, shoving his hands into his jean pockets. “Good,” Claire says with a faux smile on her face. “But won’t you introduce us to your handsome friend?” My dad clears his throat. “I’m Ed’s father. We’ll be out of your way shortly.” He angles backward to look at me. “Go ahead,” he tells me like he wants me to leave the room. What could he possibly need to say to them? “Little mouse never told me the daddy that doesn’t love her is a hottie.” A rumbling noise escapes from Harris. “Claire!” he snaps. Did she really just say that? Now my anxiety is falling behind a very different, raw emotion—fury. “Look, Claire.” I release the suitcase in my hand and skirt around my father, moving closer to the couch. My eyes stay on her, ignoring everything else in the room. If I don’t focus on my resentment toward Claire, I might unwittingly reveal my broken heart. That’s not why I came here. “I can’t live with the lies and the games anymore. This place is unhealthy for me, and I’m not going to let you manipulate me anymore. I want to move out and move on. Could you just tell me what I owe you?” “Move out and move on.” Claire pulls a face as she mimics my words. “Ed,” my dad snaps, drawing my attention away from Claire. “Get started. I’ll handle the rest.” “Dad—” “Go.” His uses a razor-sharp tone, leaving no room for argument. With my marching orders, my eyes flicker to Harris. He clenches his fists, and wears a mask of thunder directed at his sister. Where was that anger yesterday?

Of Happiness is the sequel to In Pursuit and it answers all of the lingering questions. If you are looking for the guy in a book to fawn over then Harris is definitely it. He was something special in the first book, but he was in another world in this book.

Of Happiness picks up right where In Pursuit. Edith is trying to put her life together after how things ended with Harris. Her estranged father is in the picture and Harris’ CRAY CRAY sister shows back up as well. The appearance of these two secondary characters adds another dimension and layer to the story.

Overall, this was a very enjoyable book. Harris and Edith’s love story is emotional, at times heartbreaking, and one heck of a roller coaster ride. I highly recommend the books in order instead of simply reading Of Happiness. Olivia Luck has two gems with In Pursuit and Of Happiness!!!
