Will gambling with her heart bring her luck in love? Lucky is a top event planner with a loving family and the job of her dreams. But she’s not at all lucky in love. Her last relationship ended in a spectacle she’s been trying to forget. Then a chance encounter leads her into the arms of Jared Thomas, one incredibly sexy man who makes more than her heart throb. Jared loves women-he just doesn’t trust them. He’s lived a hard life, where misplaced trust can mean death. But when he meets the sexy Latina, he wants to get close enough to find out if she’s worthy of more than just play time. And the gloriously hot sex doesn’t disappoint. He wants to make her his, body, mind and soul…if two people with trust issues can stay together long enough…


Mastering the nearly overpowering urge to grab her by the hand and haul her out of there was not an easy task. He noticed her empty champagne flute and motioned a passing waiter to hand her a full glass. She took a sip of the bubbly. He watched her lick her lips again, lips he kept picturing wrapped around his cock, sucking him into her hot mouth. He leaned forward on the table, closer to her, and inhaled. The sexy, light scent tickling his nostrils made him think of satin sheets and sweaty bodies. “What did you have in mind?” he asked. Their gazes met. Arousal flickered to life in the depths of her whiskey-brown eyes. The longer they stared at each other, the brighter it blazed, beckoning him closer. His cock jerked in his dress pants, ready for action. Hell, he sure was glad he was behind the table, because no matter how good his poker face, he wouldn’t be able to hide that bit of evidence from her. She shrugged. It was a dainty, sexy lift of her shoulders that pushed her breasts farther up her neckline. “You seem to be the expert here.” He narrowed his eyes. She sounded like she was making fun of him, but she couldn’t possibly know he was anything other than a hired table attendant. “I wouldn’t call myself a professional.” Oh yeah, he was a lying bastard all right. “But I have experience.” Her gaze latched onto his lips and slowly traveled back up to meet his. He ground his teeth and fought the cock-hardening look she gave him. She licked her lips. “Let’s see if you’re right in your assumption that my luck won’t last.” “What’s in it for me, gorgeous?” She leaned closer. Their faces were only a foot apart now. “What do you want?”  He wanted to close the distance, to taste her plump red lips, and allow her sexy perfume to fill his lungs. “Alone time…” He watched her eyes widen before he finished. “With you.” The interest in her eyes grew, until her pupils dilated with arousal. She gulped but didn’t respond. He decided to taunt her into agreeing, into giving in to his wishes. “It’s all right. It’s clear you’re going to lose anyway. I know the game.” He grinned, and because he couldn’t stop himself, he lifted a hand and caressed her cheek. Her skin was baby-soft and smooth. Her eyes widened and then narrowed. “And if I win?” Gotcha. He felt like a lion that had landed on the perfect prey. Now to reel her in. “Whatever you want.”





This is the third book in April Angel’s Sizzling Encounter Series. If you have read her other two as I have you will know that this whole series is pure erotic hot and steamy sex scenes throughout as well as well written. What I love about this authors writing is that her book is raw and very descriptive. I have yet to see a bad cover for any of her books including this basic but beautiful cover of Jared and Lucky.

Luciana (mainly known as Lucky by everyone) is an event planner and has come to New York to help plan her cousin Nina’s wedding. Of course she hasn’t been to lucky in love, and is taken to a party which is where she meets Jared. While he has had a very bad experience lately too, Lucky and Jared have instant chemistry, which they decide to have fun with. Will their broken hearts mend or will it get in the way of them making a commitment?

Even though this is a short book, it is very captivating and will keep you well involved with your imagination.  I had a hard time putting this book down, Lucky Break also had some of that pull and pull tension build up which makes you enjoy a book more in my opinion. At the same time though there was also more of emotions having to be build involved in my opinion with this one because they did not know each other prior to that one night.  This book can serve as a stand alone in my opinion or you can read the other two in the series, either way you will not miss a beat. This is one book I will be going back and re-reading in the future and would recommend it to others.
