Review: Lucky by Carina Adams

The Cover: I love this cover! The color, the font and the model are work really well together. The cover model is exactly what I imagine when I think of Lucky and I really, really love it. Definitely one of my favorite sports romance covers.

Basics: Lucky is 340 pages long and was released on February 28th 2017. It is also available on Kindle Unlimited! Genre wise Lucky belongs to sports romance, age gap romance, forbidden romance and contemporary romance. 

Description: Everyone loves Lucky # 7. He’s the whole package – smart, athletic, and sexy as sin. A filthy talking bad boy, he can have any woman he wants. Except me.

A chance encounter. One unforgettable night. That’s all we could ever have. At least, that’s what we tell ourselves. Fate has other plans. If anyone found out, I would lose my job. He could lose his scholarship.

Some things are worth the risk. Sometimes, you have to cross your fingers, Roll the dice, and hope lady luck is on your side.
Overall thoughts: It’s funny how easily I can fall in love with a book, but for Lucky it took me about five seconds to fall deep and hard. Carina Adams writing is gorgeous and her characters are laugh out loud funny but have a depth to them that anyone can easily relate to. I loved Lucky‘s plot; personally age doesn’t matter to me (as long as it’s not against the law of course!) and it was refreshing to read about a couple that has some significant differences from one another, but still feel in love. Fiercely I might add. I also enjoyed the side characters, such as Sunshine’s friend Max and especially Josh and Loretta. I wouldn’t might reading about those two either to be honest! I can’t wait till Lucky comes out in book form because I will be immediately buying it and putting it on my bookshelves with much love and pride. Lucky will easily be one of my favorite reads of 2017, hands down. (Original review!) 

I do not like football, at all. But I read the blurb for Lucky in 2017 and wanted to give it a try and I am SO glad I did Lucky was one of my favorite books of 2017! Carina Adams is severely talented and is one of those romance authors that you NEED to read! Lucien, AKA Lucky is seriously one of the best book boyfriends I have EVER read about and it’s been a year and I am still obsessed with him! Lucky is a great sports romance to read about especially if you like football romances and a great age gap/forbidden romance as well!

Thankfully, fate stepped in and granted her the ultimate wish – a life full of men. Carina lives in a picturesque New England town with her husband, the man who ruined the thought of all others, and two amazing sons who always keep her on her toes.
Carina received her MBA in May, but would much rather play with her imaginary friends (the voices in her head) than work her 8 to 5. When she isn’t trying to juggle being a working mom with karate and football practices, surprising her children with her sci-fi movie knowledge, or writing, you can find her with her nose pressed against her kindle, laughing with friends, or living life vicariously as her Derby Girl persona, Writers Block.
