Very enjoyable story with quirky, funny characters. I love shifters and fae in my M/M romance and this one had both. Alli is a Fae who's cursed with bad luck (especially on Fridays) and he's become cranky and withdrawn. He spends all his time working magic in the little florist shop in Putman County (a haven for Paranormal folk). Michael is a bear shifter and is looking for some place to call his own, away from his lovable but overbearing and eccentric family. He buys a cabin on the outskirts of ...more

This is just a really sweet story!
Poor Alli is a banished Fairy and because of how is magic works here he has a lot of bad luck.( serious BAD luck lol)
And Friday's are the worst! ( no TGIF for him), so he is understandably grumpy and prickly.
Then Michael enters his world and his luck isn't quite so bad anymore! There is a stalker issue and Michaels crazy family plays a role too, but all in all it's just a feel good story and I had to laugh at some of Allie's disasters.

Cute story. I liked it, but wish a content editor had been a bit more attentive, as Alli is apparently as surprised to learn that Michael is a bear the second time he hears it as he was the first. I had to read back a few paragraphs after the second one, trying to figure out what I'd missed because surely he wasn't surprised by information he already had?? But yeah, somehow Alli didn't seem to know Michael was a bear even though they'd just had that very conversation a few pages earlier.

Okay, the good? A delightfully quirky and warped sense of humour. Nice characters, a nice setting. A certain level of realism that was not depressing, while still revelling in the non-perfection of everything. Such as people getting annoyed with one another’s minor (and even major) traits despite falling in love. Certainly no perfection in body, mind, attitude or anything else, which made it feel that much more real. That and the fact that they focused on sex in a single-minded, irritation-in

Alli is a very unlucky fae. After being rejected by his people for being gay, he’s forced to live in the human world, however his magic reacts badly on earth and he ends up being a walking disaster. Michael is a bear shifter whose seeking something more and decides to settle in the same town which is known to be friendly to paranormals. He literally saves Alli from being run down in the street and somehow is tasked with caring for him. Alli has attitude. He has no intention of getting close to a ...more

I liked the idea of mixing a shifter with a fairy in a romance story and enjoyed the paranormal town Ms Mahoney created. I would have enjoyed the story much more without Alli's incessant squeaks and squeals. Both Chris and Michael were good characters. The story itself was good though a little too sweet for me.

K.M. Mahoney is an author who's new to me. I have no idea what made me buy this book but I'm glad I did.

Lucky was one of those books that's just plain 'ol cute. Alli was like a grumpy old man trapped in the body of a fairy. At first I was kind of annoyed with Alli's woe-is-me attitude. Once I found out why he thought everyone disliked him though, I was no longer annoyed. When you cause small scale disasters almost everywhere you go...yeah, people might not like you so much after a while.

I enjoyed this story with Allie and Michael. Allie is a faery whose magic gets out of control at times and causes unlucky things to happen to himself and those near him at the time. He moved to the country of Putnam after being cast out of faery land by his family for being gay. There he meets newcomer Michael. Michael is an spectacle bear shifter who has bought a hunting cabin in the area so he can let his bear Bruce roam around.

This story was cute and I loved Michael and also Allie. I would ha

3.5 stars. Alli and Michael were really very cute together. Michael the typical cuddly bear and Alli was sweet with the right amount of snark. The build-up to the climax was nice, but the moment itself was a huge let down and kind of fizzled out.

The storytelling itself was nicely done, though there were moments when it felt off. Maybe forced or...I don't know, maybe more motherly than loverly? It's hard to put my finger on, but it just felt off every now and then.

All in all, a nice, sweet read.

This was not the book I expected. It was cute and funny. It was a simple book that was easy to read. Uncomplicated and sweet, I enjoyed reading it. The characters were likable and funny. The plot revolved around the romance with a dash of mystery. For a comfort read it is perfect.

I enjoyed it, but if the author does not get her facts stright, I doubt I'll read anything else by her. She repeats things she wrote 20 pages before and changes the outcome. That's worse that being repetitive. Rounded up for the great idea.

Славная история. Автору удалось создать героев, в которых радует решительно все :)
A very enjoable shifter story, featuring the fae Allegro and a bear-shifter Michael Lakkis and their journey to happily ever after. The writing is pretty nice and there are a lot of interesting supporting characters, I hope to see in future books, like Michaels brother Tristan!

Allegro is somewhat of a backluck magnet, especially at Friday and of course that's the day he meets Michael, who's family also is know to be quite ecentric in the shifter world. Alli is not all that happy about being resc

This review can be found at The Armchair Reader.

The blurb does a very good job of describing what the story is about so I won’t go on to repeat that. It’s a cute read with some humor and funny scenarios thrown in. I found I really enjoyed it.

One of the things I really liked about the story is the fact Alli has such horrible luck. In general, he’s always clumsy but on Fridays, everything always goes wrong to the point of almost getting killed multiple times. He’s lonely but he doesn’t want to sub

This was just FUN! Poor Alli is Fayte, disowned and kicked out just be cause he's gay. His magic works different here, it's like it stores itself up and needs an outlet once a week. So his Friday's are always "bad luck" Fridays, no TGIF! But then he meets Michael a Bear Shifter who takes his bad luck in stride, just what Alli needs. Now I want to read the rest of the series....

Rated 4.50 stars. Cute, sweet story of Fae who is a bad luck magnet and newcomer bear shifter. I really liked the development in their relationship, and the secondary characters,e.g, Deputy Sheriff Chris, Evan etc.

Loved Allegro. Considering I usually have a coupld of bruises on me at any one time due to clumsiness, and the fact I can actually catch things I drop a lot of the time before I realise I've dropped them, well, I really found his situation to be familiar. And Michael was everything you want in a MC without being too unrealistic.
Jul 11, 2011 Rachel rated it really liked it
This was a delightful read! The characters were quirky, their dialogue was witty and fun, and Michael's family was a hoot. I really loved Alli and felt bad for all the bad luck he had, but I loved Michael's persistence in creating a relationship with him. And Bruce was adorable too! I would be interested in more from this author, and even reading more of this, like other characters in the same town. I really enjoyed this.

This is a very nice read! Alli the unlucky fairy and Michael the ever-optimistic bear shifter are delightful MCs. The supporting cast is equally entertaining. The story moves along well, and the wrap-up is not too abrupt. I am definitely looking forward to more from this author!

Lucky was fun and very entertaining, while still being serious in the places that mattered. All the characters were well rounded, the romance was very sweet and I enjoyed the originality of what happens to fairies on Earth. I look forward to reading book 2!
3.5 stars
A sweet and quirky story with a likable cast of characters. My problem was that at times the story felt slow, but I still enjoyed reading it and am hoping there will be more stories im this world.

A delightful, cute, sweet, and adorable story. Like other reviewers said, the main MCs are adorable and the secondary characters are also very fun to read about.
DNF 30% I just couldn't get into this story. It's confusing, disjointed and overall hard to follow. Maybe I'll try picking this up again on a later date.
Now I think Alli's brother deserves a story. I want to know what happened to him! And while we're at it, why not give Lucas one as well? :)
