Is love in the cards?
Since birth, Lexie Berry has had nothing but bad luck. Orphaned at an early age, she had a rough childhood and a boyfriend who was murdered. Now the beautiful, stylish Lexie is determined to change her luck and her life. But first she’s got to make good on a promise: to pick up Ty Walker from prison. One look at the gorgeous ex-convict and Lexie knows she’s in trouble-and already thinking about taking a walk on the wild side . . .
For five years, Ty was imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit. Now he wants revenge on the people who framed him. Yet when the high-stakes poker player sees the leggy Lexie, he suddenly has other desires on his mind. Realizing that Ty is innocent, Lexie tries to stop his plan for vengeance and help him become a better man. But as Ty battles his inner demons, dirty cops and criminals plot to take him out. Can he and Lexie find a way to escape the past?
This is a reread
For the second or third time?
Anyway – realized I hadn’t reviewed it before so here we go.
I have this love / love relationship with Kristen Ashley. A friend introduced me to Mystery man about 3 years ago. She lent me her audible account (I know *gasp*) and I got to listen to it before actually reading any of her work. I fell in love. Like love at first word basically. Since then I have devoured every Kristen Ashley book I can get my hands on. Scouring through the 3 libraries in our district, second hand book shops and book depository galore. Lady Luck was actually the first book I brought brand new. Since buying it, (and the others in the series as I loved it so much) I haven’t been able to get enough of Ty and Lexie.
Of all Kristen Ashley’s couples (that I have read) I have fallen the hardest for these 2. I honestly felt like neither of them deserved any of the crap handed to them, that they genuinely were just really nice people keeping their heads down. I was therefor over the moon when they got their happy ending.
Added to the really epic main characters – Kristen Ashley serves you even more dishes by throwing in all the supporting characters from previous books and even little teasers of books to come. I love getting invested in her characters and still being able to see more of them in the books that follow.
The of course we have the story. Because we wouldn’t really be here without it would we? As an added bonus to the 15 course meal we have already been served Kristen Ashley provides us with a story line that contains a hole town full of bad guys, high stakes poker games, flights across country, abductions (as always), and a lovely amount of action to keep you as reader on the edge of your seat.
I couldn’t have asked for a better story for these to characters. I loved every second of it. Even for the fourth time round.
