Rolling in the Deep by Rebecca Rogers Maher

In this raw, moving novel for readers of Jill Shalvis, Molly O’Keefe, and Karina Halle, two kindred spirits share a winning lottery ticket—and discover what it really means to get lucky.

Holly Ward is stretched to the breaking point, raising her young son alone and working long hours for minimum wage at a local superstore. Sure, she’s noticed the new guy with the easy grin and warm brown eyes, but she’s learned the hard way that relationships aren’t worth the pain. Still, when he invites her to split a lottery ticket, she figures a little innocent fun couldn’t hurt. The last thing she expects is to score big, which is exactly what more ways than one.

From the moment he meets Holly, Ray Lopez is drawn to her quiet dignity and openhearted beauty. And when they hit the jackpot together, he’s thrilled that the single mom can give her kid a better life. The only problem is the chaos surrounding them: lawyers and reporters swarming, friends and family angling to get their cut. In all the chaos, Ray discovers an oasis of calm and passion in Holly. But with the stakes higher than ever, winning her trust could cost him everything.

This is a sweet story that many of us will recognise having dreamt of having happened to us. Just what would you do if you suddenly won the lottery. But added to the mix is the fact that you jointly won it with a person from work...and you both might like each other...but is that due to the win? How does everyone else react, especially the press, and the unpleasant ex-husband? I really enjoyed the amount of thought and disbelief that both of them show about the win and what they should do – almost as if they had never bothered to have the dream. Holly is lucky to have a good friend in Beth, and to finally wake up to herself. Ray has a strong brother to help him – and given the name of the book, he will have a story too.

This is an easy read, and will make you think...just how easy would that transition be? (I reckon I'd do better – should anyone have a win they wish to share!)
