Lyla Wilder is done being the shy, chemistry nerd extraordinaire. While every other college student is out having fun, Lyla is studying. With her cat. Well, she's played it "safe" quite enough, thank you. So she creates a "College Bucket List" with item #7 being a night of uninhibited, mind-blowing sex...
But she needs some help from her best friend.
Hockey player Beck Davenport thought Lyla's transformation would be subtle. Man, was he wrong. With every item she ticks off, Beck finds himself growing seriously hot for his sweet, brainiac best friend. And if he's not careful, he'll end up risking their friendship in order to convince Lyla that he might just be her lucky #7...

Cindi Madsen is a new author to me and after reading Getting Lucky Number Seven I don’t understand why I haven’t found her before now, we’ll thats about to change I certainly will be checking out the rest of this series and other books by this very talented author.
Lyla and Beck became best friends when they were paired up in the chemistry class, on paper a nerd and jock shouldn’t have the friendship these guys strike up after all he is the guy who has girls falling at his feet and she is the girl who covers her body by layering her clothes and draping herself in brightly coloured scarfs. When Layla has a disastrous blind date where her date calls her fugly she decides it’s time to change her life and that means a bucket list and who better to help her work through the list than her best friend Beck....
I loved this book ,I loved the strength and depth of Lyla and Beck, I loved that it’s a hockey romance but most of all I loved that this was a carefree sweet at times silly love story. A beautifully written romance with just the right amount of humour by a very talented author looking forward to reading more from her.
