Luck is no lady...in fact, she can be a downright bitch.
Coming home was supposed to be my shot at redemption. Instead, I’m finding myself chasing after an irresistible blonde whose mercurial behavior could give Jekyll and Hyde a run for their money. I’ve got too much on my plate to get tied up in knots over a girl who wants nothing to do with me. But Bailey Murphy may hold the key to my redemption, and I’m not giving up on either without a fight. "Irish" might play with a poker face, but I’m about to call her bluff...and I hope like hell I’ve got luck on my side.
Let’s get one thing straight. I am not your typical girl. Sure, I’ve got all the parts, but I’ve been a stubborn, irreverent tomboy since the womb. Which makes it particularly ironic that my heart is so damn girly. It falls in love at the drop of a hat and leaves me to deal with the aftermath. But no more! If Jake Beckett thinks spending one night together gives him some claim on me, he’s got another thing coming - even if the mere thought of that night leaves me panting like a damn Labrador. I’m not about to open the door and let Jake in, but that choice may be taken from both our hands.
Terrific RomCom & Narration🎧 Bailey💘Jake🔥
The Lucky One
A One-Night-Stand Romantic Comedy (Carolina Connections, Book 3)
By: Sylvie Stewart
Narrated by: Meg Price
Series: Carolina Connections, Book 3
I am loving Sylvie Stewart’s “Carolina Connections” series, each novel features different characters that run in the same circle, either family relations, friends and/or co-workers. Each book stands on its own but I highly recommend reading them all and in order, mainly because they are so good but also because of the character connections and knowing their who they are and their history. I love that each book has its own unique story with interesting and original storylines. This third book is Bailey Murphy and Jake Beckett’s story. They met and hooked up at Nate & Laney’s wedding, Bailey is Nate’s sister and was a bridesmaid. Jake is Mark’s brother and recently moved back to be closer to his Mom, he partnered with Fiona’s boss to do landscaping design. First off this book is hilarious, especially when Bailey was watching Rocco. In addition to the laugh out loud moments there were plenty of heartfelt ones. At times I felt Bailey was sort of having an identity crisis, with how she saw herself, working to keep her father happy and not doing what she rather be doing because someone crushed her dreams and broke her heart while at it. Jake and Bailey’s one night stand was a memorable one, Jake can not get it out of his mind and attempts to pursue her but she keeps shutting him down. Their friends encourage him to not give up and her to let him in. I loved how everything plays out, we are taken back in time several times to get glimpses of what happened when they first met as well as Bailey’s back story. There is never a dull moment in this book, there is plenty of drama, angst, some great humor and hot romance. Sylvie Stewart, thank you for another amazing story, all the laughs and the emotional rollercoaster ride.
I listened to the Audible edition, Meg Price is a terrific narrator and voice performer. She brings the characters to life gives each their own voice and personality. Her portrayal of each character was spot on, they sounded as you pictured them. She captured their emotions, as well as the drama and humor of the story, which could be heard in her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧
