Sometimes there is more than one way to get lucky…
Allison Parker knows winning the New York state lottery is impossible for a retail employee and who doesn’t, uh, play the lottery. But after a bad day at work and a random prediction from a quirky psychic, she does just that, and wins. Money. Lots of it. Quit her job and middle finger everyone kind of money.
Marco Lucky is exhausted over his rock band’s diva antics and is looking for an escape. Yet finding a quiet spot in New York City is damn near impossible and he’s already tired of the women hitting on him because he’s famous. He’s done the parties and the bed hopping for years and just wants some down time. Alone.
But then the crazy brunette with the winning lottery ticket tells him exactly what she thinks of him and it isn't flattering. He is determined to get to know her a whole lot better... and prove he is worth her time.
Allison figures she would be the first woman in the history of ever to hit the lottery and score a smoking hot rock star all in one night- only to wake up with her entire life destroyed a mere eighteen hours later when her lottery ticket is missing. She spent money on her credit card like an heiress and told her boss to suck it.
This could be a problem.
Marco’s offer of help makes her feel like the biggest lame ass loser ever, and while she can't take his money, she can take a weekend in LA and some smoking hot sex as a balm to her financial crisis. But that's all it can be is sex with him hitting the road and her hitting the unemployment line. Or could it be something else entirely?
Being lucky in love just might be hitting the jackpot after all…
Allison is not having a great night. She's just learned from her psychic friend that love is not in the cards for her, she's working in a crappy retail job, and she's just insulted Marco Lucky. Allison pulls out her trademark sass when the sexy rock star responds. Marco is so over the random hookups and hangovers from his past. He's feeling out of sorts when he runs into Allison in the bar and her ability to treat him as any other man is intriguing and provides a much needed breath of fresh air. This chance meeting leads to an unlikely relationship that was intended to be a holiday fling, but becomes pretty intense very quickly. How to Get Lucky is an entertaining and sexy opposites attract romance with great banter. Erin McCarthy provides an engaging couple and colorful secondary characters. How to Get Lucky can be read as a standalone in the series.
How to Get Lucky
Who doesn’t love Erin McCarthy??? I’ve read all 3 books in the NYC series and I’m so glad How to Get Lucky brings back some favorite characters from the previous NYC books (The Pregnancy Test and You Don’t Know Jack). Allison wins the New York State Lottery at the same time she meets Marco Lucky. Will her luck hold and true love come her way? Or is her psychic friend Beckwith right and she’s not destined for love?
Hot rock star and sassy girl
I loved this book. I've read many of Erin McCarthy's book and have enjoyed all of them. She has a way of writing dialog between friends and lovers that just makes me laugh and wish they were my friends. Allison was so sassy and blunt, maybe to much for some but Marco found her refreshing and someone he wanted to spend time with. She didn't bow down to his stardom but treated him like a regular person unlike most everyone he meets. The book is full of hot as hell sexiness, chemistry that's off the charts and a relationship that started so fast that they couldn't let themselves believe it was real.
This is the third book in the series but can totally be read as a stand alone book. I have not read the other books but I am so going to now.
