Publisher Description

Cassie has everything she wants…

Cassie Wilson’s life is pretty much perfect, with a dream job, great partners—and the freedom to do as she pleases. The last thing she wants is to go back to Montrose River, the town she couldn’t wait to leave, and revisit the past. But when her oldest friend asks her to be a godmother, Cassie sees an opportunity to make a difference in Emily’s life. Maybe teaching Emily to dream big will be her legacy. Besides, one weekend in the Midwest won’t kill her. She’ll be back in Manhattan so quickly that they won’t have time to miss her at Flatiron Five Fitness.

Reid knows what he wants…

Reid Jackson is convinced that luck has to be made. Keeping his eyes open has been the secret to his triumph over his past, along with a lot of hard work. He might have come from the wrong side of the tracks, and he might have the reputation of being bad to the bone, but he’s built his own brand of success. When Cassie Wilson comes breezing back into town, Reid is ready to find out if she really is different from everyone else. Cassie turns his expectations inside out, fulfilling his dreams and shaking up his routine. But when Cassie decides she wants more than a fling, Reid knows he’s not the man she wants him to be—can Cassie convince him to hope for more?

This review is of Some Guys Have All the Luck by Deborah Cooke.
Note: this review contains spoilers!
Reid Jackson doesn’t believe in luck. His father used to beat him. During the college football game when the NFL scouts were watching him, he was tackled by the other team and ended up having both knees replaced. He got a settlement and finished his college degree then went home to Montrose River and bought the small grocery store where he had worked. Then he bought the hardware store and a house big enough for 10 people.
But none of that was luck. It was hard work. Just about everything he had done in his life has been a negotiation including one night stands. If you don’t commit to someone, they can’t abandon you. They can’t lie about loving you. There’s just one girl he dreams about: the one from high school he couldn’t even talk to. Cassie Wilson.
Cassie has just about everything. She loves her job at Flatiron 5, loves her partners, loves her freedom. What she doesn’t love is Montrose River. She swore she would never go back, but her best friend asked her to to be the godmother of her little girl Emily. Cassie can’t refuse. What she doesn’t expect is Reid Jackson. Or that he owns half of the town. Or that she would fall so fast or so hard. Or that he would protect her and cherish her.
But both Reid and Cassie have secrets. Secrets they are both not willing to share until the right negotiations come along. Will the secrets destroy them or create one final negotiation? You will have to read this to find out!
I loved the characters and how the story line developed. Flatiron 5 sounds fascinating! Now I have to read the rest of the books in the series!

Well rounded, complex characters, intriguing storyline & scorching heat!

Cassie Wilson reluctantly returns to her hometown of Montrose River for a christening, but the bad memories she left behind threaten to overwhelm her. When she reconnects with “bad boy” Reid Jackson, their chemistry is instantaneous and scalding hot. Both initially agreeing to a friends with benefits relationship limited to the long weekend, little by little they begin to reveal themselves to each other, and intense feelings soon follow. As always, Ms. Cooke gives us well rounded, complex characters, an intriguing storyline which builds slowly, and scorching heat! Loved this book! *A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.*
