one of those books with a bit of everything - i loved - you'll love it ...........
Nick Chenault finds himself hanging out at the bus station, waiting for his father's valet/nurse to pick him up and return home, when he see's a woman he just knows he's meant to have. He can't take his eyes off her, and for the first time in years, finds himself trying to pick up a woman with a cheesy pick up a line. When Lucky refuses, and grabs a taxi, Nick is bummed-although he knows he would have been disappointed if she'd have accepted.
After securing a makeover, and a place to live, and having the good luck to have a wonderful landlady-Fluffy LaMont--Lucky goes on the hunt for a job-dealing cards. In this town, a gorgeous woman like her has trouble being taken seriously. But Fluffy has directed her to the famous Club 52-which just happens to be the club that Nick Chenault owns. Having mistaken Nick for a pimp at the bus stop, Lucky is astounded when she finally comes face to face with her boss after overhearing some disturbing things. Nick is even more amazed...and thrilled the one woman who has held his attention is now right where he can get to her.
Nick and Lucky are drawn to one another irresistibly, and it's not long before a relationship develops between them. But Lucky hasn't yet realized that the score she still has to settle will lead her inexplicably back to Nick...
In another wonderful love story, with elements of suspense, Ms. Sala has once again delivered. Lucky is a spunky, determined modern woman who has many obstacles to overcome, and a hard time accepting love. Nick is an incredibly sexy hero, who's just right for Ms. Independence, Lucky. With a cast of wonderful characters, several story lines that'll keep you turning the pages quickly, Ms. Sala ties up the Cradle Creek, TN trilogy. Lucky is a wonderful finale-not to be missed. If you didn't catch the other stories-Queen and Diamond-you'll definitely want to look them up!
This was a great story with wonderful, likeable characters! Fluffy and Manny were wonderful secondary characters that really added to the story.
Lucky is a gamblers daughter that lived a hard life while growing up. She and her sister's buried their dad and they each went there separate ways. Lucky headed west and landed in Las Vegas Nevada "City of Sin". Here she finds friends, (Manny, and Fluffy the retired showgirl who is in her 80's) and the love of her life. Before she can enjoy all of this there is some stuff she has to survive before it means anything, plus there are things that she needs to come to terms with as well. This was a wonderful story of growth, forgiveness, and love.
Nick is everything that Lucky does not want in a man. He is good looking, rich, and a gambler (his family owns a very successful casino that Lucky works at). Yet she can't help but be drawn to this gentle loving man. Nick will do all that he can to help Lucky heal, prove to Lucky that loving him is not the gamble that she thinks it is, and at the same time do all that he can to stay alive. There is a man from his fathers past that is determined to ruin the Chenault's and killing Nick is not out of the question.
This was a great book and I can hardly wait until the other two in the series make to my mailbox. It has definitely earned a place on my "keeper" bookshelf. Fast paced, and touching with really likable characters and a tender love story is hard to find nowadays. Don't pass this one up!!!
