Event planner for the rich and famous, Lucky Nuñez lives her dream job. But when it comes to love, she’s scraping the bottom of the barrel. She’s dying to have babies, but it seems that’s never going to happen. A chance encounter leads her into the arms of Jared Thomas. He’s a bad boy to the bone. Sexy, seductive, and so domineering, he makes her toes curl. And he’s got dirty talk down to an art form.
Jared Thomas is a ladies’ man, but when he meets sexy Lucky, he knows she’s worthy of more than just play time. Never has he wanted to keep a woman like he does her. He will make her his wife and mother of his children. There’s only one problem: his past is trying to kill his future.
They have more than communication problems playing havoc with their relationship. With trust issues the size of Texas, these two need to open up to each other. That’s if they can stay alive long enough to try.
NOTE TO READERS: This book was previously published as Lucky Break under a small press. It has since been re-edited and 15k words added to enhance the story.
So I am sort of freaking out here, everyone. I absolutely LOVE Milly Taiden and have for awhile. I’ve read most of her work, but since my blog has come out, I haven’t had a chance to review any of her books for my blog. But that changes now! EEK!
If you’re familiar with Milly Taiden, you know she has dirty talk down pat. I can say that in some books, that dirtiness can sometimes be off putting, but somehow, Milly Taiden can make some crazy stuff sound so erotic and sexy. Our hero in this story, Jared Thomas, is no different. He is this very sexy alpha male, and he meets Luciana aka Lucky, over a game of cards. I actually loved how the author incorporated the act of playing cards in. There was so much sexual tension and innuendo in talking about the game, the betting. It was a fantastic and very natural dynamic for the characters to interact in.
Lucky’s been burned in her past relationships and while she is extremely attracted to Jared, she isn’t entirely sure of him. Jared also has past issues with an ex that come back to haunt him and Lucky. It was an interesting twist to the story and while I liked it, there was a part of me that felt it wasn’t entirely necessary. The one thing I will say is that Milly Taiden books usually have some conflict but I love that the conflict doesn’t overtake the story. This book is no different.
I discovered Milly Taiden quite awhile ago now, but ironically it was while I was trying out Kindle Unlimited (which I no longer use). But this book IS on KU, as are other titles from Milly Taiden, so if you’ve been wanting to check out her books, this is a fantastic way to get your hands on them!
Regardless, I would recommend this book. Milly Taiden is one of my all-time favorites. She is one of the few authors where I can one-click and not even know what I’m reading about and know I will love it.
