“Carly Phillips is synonymous with red-hot romance.”
– Lauren Blakely, New York Times Bestselling Author
Derek Corwin is well aware of the family curse – every Corwin male who married for love would be destined to lose his woman and his fortune. He decides to outsmart the prophesy that has plagued his family for generations by breaking up with his first love—and marrying someone else. Now, divorced and broke, all he has left is his teenage daughter, a boatload of regret … and wariness when it comes to love.
Until Gabrielle Donovan returns, determined to rekindle their passion. Will her stubborn streak and her unwavering love be the lucky charm Derek so desperately needs?

I am new to the Lucky Series by Carly Phillips. Since it is re-releasing on June 6th, now was the best time to jump into this series! I read the blurb and was intrigued before opening the book. Yes the Corwin men have “the Woman curse” that I like to call as my own. That made me a bit sad that the guys did not live life fully since they are darkened with this so called curse from centuries in the making.
I really loved reading about Derek and how he selflessly let his only love leave when they were younger. He saw she had so much living in her and he did not want to get in the way. Most importantly he did not want her to end up hurt or worst. He could not bear it. So he moves on, gets into a loveless marriage, has a daughter, then ends up divorce. He tried, but failed from ever moving on from Gabrielle. Can he really stay away? Gabrielle is back years later on a mission. Can she really convince her small home town that the curse never existed in the first place?
I enjoyed the story line and the characters. I won’t leave any spoilers, but I will say there is some drama, a lot of loving, a lot of proving what everyone believed was wrong. This story has some angst, sexy time scenes, and an adventure of rediscovery. I love Carly’s books!
Jason Corwin knows he should resist his attraction to Lauren Perkins. After all, it was one of her ancestors who came up with the curse that has plagued every Corwin male to misery and the single life. But after one night of mind-blowing sex with his supposed—and very seductive—enemy, he can’t bring himself to stay away.
All Lauren wants is to sell her late grandmother’s old house and leave the past behind forever. But that’s not an easy thing to do with gorgeous contractor Jason Corwin whispering sweet, sexy somethings in her ear. About staying. Can she be the lucky break that Jason needs?

We are now reading Jason and Lauren’s story. Lauren does not have a lot going on for her at the moment since we find out it was her ancestors that put the curse on the Corwin men. She is ready to sell her home and move on. And then it happens. She is falling under the Corwin charm when she meets that sexy contractor Jason.
Jason knows all about the black cloud hanging over his head. He knows his cousins are now living in bliss, but can not see past that or the anger he has with Lauren’s family. Even though she is technically the “enemy” in this story, he has had one night of compassion and connection. Now he is trying all he can to keep Lauren to stay, but aware of his conflicted feelings. What will happen with these two? If they do make it, will this break the “curse”?
When Mike Corwin awakens after some wild partying in Vegas $100,000 richer and married to Amber Rose Brennan, the gorgeous woman he met the night before, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot. The bad news is that Amber’s a con who takes his money and runs. Seems the family jinx has finally hit him. Hard.
But to Amber, Mike isn’t business as usual. If only she didn’t need the money to ensure her father’s safety, she might actually have fallen for the intense lawman. Instead, she’s forced to betray him.
Now Mike’s hell-bent on divorce and Amber’s on the run…but when a twist of fate reunites them, can they turn their run of bad fortune into a lucky streak that lasts forever?

OH! I really loved Mike and Amber’s story! It was intense and oh so good. Lucky Streak was unexpected from what I had envisioned after reading the first book. I love an officer in uniform, but it is time for Mike to unwind in Vegas! What he did not expect was to run into some money and a wife!! But is it to good to be true? Uh Oh could it be that damn Corwin curse creeping up on Mike. Because in a blink of an eye he loses the money and the girl by betrayal! Again I thought I had mapped out the story line. Until Amber (the wife) turns it around.
I love how Amber is not all that heartless after all. She is desperate based on certain circumstances in her life. She is doing this for her father. What she did not expect was to have the feelings with Mike. So she is on a mission to make it right and get the forgiveness she needs. What is it with the woman in the Lucky series? They are all determined and have their missions to break that curse! But I love it. Amber is a new favorite and so is Mike. Can she really break this officer’s barriers? Get this book and see what you are missing out! The chemistry, the intense pleasure of emotions, and the butterflies! Thank you Carly for re-releasing this series. I am hooked.
