Blurb: Who needs luck when you can get Lucky?
When Harmony Santos’s boyfriend dumps her on her birthday, she doesn’t get mad. She gets lucky…with a mysterious cowboy whose bedroom eyes and rough edges bring out her inner bad girl. But when their one-night rodeo turns into more than a rebound, Harmony worries her heart hasn’t healed enough to take on someone new—even if that someone is as sweet as he is sexy.
Tie-down roper Lucky Garcia can’t believe his good fortune. A shot at national finals and now this—his longtime crush, in his arms at last. The more time he spends with Harmony, the harder he falls for her. But financial demands and family responsibilities take him further and further away from her—as does his secret fear she hasn’t quite gotten over her dickhead ex. Behind closed doors, Lucky and Harmony are filthy perfection. But when reality comes knocking, the star-crossed lovers must decide: walk away intact, or risk it all for a chance at happiness.
Review: I loved this book, I really did. Short enough to finish the same day you start it but long enough to tell an emotional story. The author hooks the reader with a break up before getting the reader with a big, sweet cowboy.
If I could, I would buy the others and I really want to read the others before this one. The one instance where I’m not upset with getting a book so far in the series out of order is because it could actually be a stand alone. The other characters didn’t take over, it makes me curious about them but I don’t feel lost.
The cover is alright, gives me that Western vice but I’m not that big into Westerns so I most likely wouldn’t have looked twice at it but I’m really glad that wasn’t the case. The pace is excellent for the plot, flowing nicely and it’s written full of emotion.
I’m really glad that I finished it before I had to go to work, I wouldn’t have been able to stop thinking about it, especially when they actually decide what they really want.
I would definitely recommend to adults who love a quick, steamy, emotional read.
Thank you for reading my review.
