Lucky Streak by Carly Phillips
ARC for honest review with no compensation
Lucky Charm is the 2nd book in the Lucky series and what a way to continue it with the “curse” over all the Corwin men…."Any Corwin male who falls in love will be destined to lose his love and his fortune”.
This is about Mike Corwin, a Boston police officer who goes to Las Vegas with a group of his fellow officers for the wedding of his partner. While there he meets Amber Rose Brennen and they end up have lots of fun, sparks fly and decide to get married. When they head back to Mike’s hotel they decide to play a slot machine and voila he wins $150K and tells Amber that she now owns half. When Mike wakes up the next morning, his new wife and money are gone. He doesn’t tell his friends but he is determined to find her, get his money back and divorce her even though their chemistry is off the charts!!!
Amber who is in trouble did what she had to do even though she knows it was wrong. Now that she used some of the money to get out of trouble she is determined to find Mike again and explain why she did it. Once she finds him, the sparks continue to fly between them but will Mike forgive her and keep the marriage going or will the “curse” stop it from happening??
Lots more subplots to keep this “curse” going and setting you up for the last book in the series, Lucky Break! !
Unbelievably stupid. A detective meets a girl in Vegas, marries her within hours, wins a lot of cash, she runs off with it and gambles away half with her con ex-partner, runs from the
man she cheated, and tracks down her husband to live a happy life. Worse the husband sleeps with her within hours of her return and lets her borrow his car. He shouldn’t have been written as a detective but as a lonely, gullible, and desperate man. All the exclamation points were really annoying...was she five? I couldn’t finish this book. You know they get together and the beginning was just too stupid for me.
