Book Tour, Review & Giveaway: Pure Dumb Luck by Dahlia Donovan

Pure Dumb Luck
by Dahlia Donovan
Genre: Contemporary M/M Romance 

When two small-town country dudes win the lottery, they finally find the courage to speak their truth.

An unexpected adventure follows.

Linwood "Woody" Robinson has a routine. He works for his baby brother in construction, buys three lottery tickets every week, and lusts after his best friend from high school. He's done the same thing for twenty years.

Eddison "Eddie" Howard owns the only gas station in their small South Carolina town, sells lottery tickets, and lusts after his best friend from afar. They joke around but never speak their truth. He knows they're cowards but can't seem to find the courage to bridge the gulf between them.

And then they win eighty million dollars.

Life changes.

They go from never talking about their feelings to facing the world together.

Can anything pull them apart?

Woody and Eddie have been friends since high school. When they win the lottery, they finally decide to act on their feelings for each other and travel the world.
It's a cute story, but I thought it could have been a lot better. I would have liked more backstory on their relationship and why they finally decided to consummate the relationship. Yes, I read it and even went back over that part several times, but it seemed like they barely talked to each other except when Woody went into Eddie's store to buy lottery tickets, then boom, they won a lot of money and were suddenly messing around like bunnies. Maybe it's me, but I wanted a little more romance and wanted to see more of what they were like before they won the money. 
The travelogue part was fine, especially in Alaska, but I felt I was still getting only a surface view of the two guys. It's a quick read, maybe too quick, because I wanted more. Maybe we'll see a sequel of their further travels and some flashbacks to their teen and young adult years. 

Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about shifters and damsels in distress. She prefers irreverent humour and unconventional characters. An autistic and occasional hermit, her life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her massive collection of books and video games.
