SYNOPSIS:

Lucky Morgan gave up her dating rules for Zane Beaumont and allowed him to sweep her off of her feet; even though he didn’t really believe in love. However, as their relationship progresses, Lucky realizes that Zane isn’t the man she thought he was.

Zane Beaumont has spent the last few months trying to ignore Lucky’s smile and trying to exact revenge on Braydon Eagle.  Zane will stop at nothing to bring down the man he holds responsible for his brothers death; even if it means risking his new relationship with Lucky.

When heartbreaking secrets from the past are revealed, the fragile trust and love they have built together is put in jeopardy..  Lucky and Zane are left to decide if they can overcome the new painful revelations that are threatening to break both of their hearts so that they can focus on their future together.

EXCERPT:

. “Lucky, I know you want me, but we’re in public.” He grinned at me as we lay on our backs.

“You wish.” I shook my head and tried to sit up. He pulled me back down towards him and kissed me hard and I melted against him, enjoying the warm sweetness of his lips on mine.

He smiled as he pulled away from me and licked my lips. “You taste like honey.”

“It’s maple syrup.”

“Well, it’s good.” He leaned towards me again and ran his tongue over my bottom lip slowly. I stared into his eyes, and we sat there for a moment, just gazing at each other.

“Excuse me, excuse me! You guys can’t be on the bed doing that.” I looked up, embarrassed, and saw an elderly lady staring at us with a shocked expression. “You two need to get up off the bed. This is a reputable

business, not a brothel.” She glared at us and I jumped up off of the bed quickly. Zane stood up slowly and smiled at the lady.

“Sorry, ma’am, my whore and I got a little carried away.”

“Zane!” I gasped and noticed the lady’s face turn red. She turned away from us mumbling something about how rude this generation was.

I turned on him and hissed, “Zane, how could you say that?”  My face was still flushing a deep red and I wanted to sink into the ground.

“You know you’re not my whore, but what did that busybody expect after saying we thought this was a brothel?” He grinned and grabbed my hand. “Now let’s get these sheets and get out of here. I don’t think I’m made for Ikea.”

MY THOUGHTS:

Some odd reason, I enjoyed book 1 – The Last Boyfriend (Click Here for my review)  better than The Last Husband.  I failed to connect with both the characters in this one. There were  so many ups and downs that just caught me off guard. At first I thought I must have read it too fast but I went back and read it a second time but I still felt the same.

Lucky tells her friend Leeza that Zane ” is the one”, her soul mate but beyond the physical aspect of their relationship I didn’t see a good enough link between the two. Maybe there was a lack of description defending her soul mate claim but for me I just didn’t see it. I am hoping that my reasoning will change in the next book Before Lucky.

A good thing about this is the surprise at the end. I am glad that even with the rejection Zane experienced that he was able to find happiness and closure in another aspect.

Despite my rating I still recommend this. It has so much potential for growth,  I am really eager to see where the author takes us in this series.
