Get Lucky (Tall, Dark & Dangerous #9)
An unlikely state of affairs. For Navy SEAL Lucky O'Donlon was the original love-'em-and-leave-'em guy. Used to women swooning at his feet. So how could it be that the frustratingly attractive journalist Sydney Jameson had nothing to offer him but one very cold shoulder?
Well, two could play at this game. But first things first--he and Sydney had a job to do...more
You really can’t go wrong with any of the books from Suzanne Brockmann’s Tall Dark and Dangerous series. Each is well written with a delicious alpha male hero and just the right amount of action, suspense and melodrama to keep you coming back for more. All the stories are loosely connected (following Seal Team 10’s Alpha squad members) yet still different enough tha...more
So I haven't read any of Suzanne Brockmann's books before but I heard some good things about this one so I thought I'd try it out.
So since this story is part of a series I had to ignore a lot of the back-stories that kept popping up on previous couples in this series which wasn't a problem except I got so confused by the shear amount of them I got somewhat annoyed by the end of it and pretended they were random side characters rather than a group so...more
Luke "Lucky" O'Donlon ist der Typische ... ja um es mit Worten der Protagonistin zu sagen: Ken. Wer jetzt denke: "Hä? Ken?" Ja, genau. Der Ken von Barbie und Ken! Er ist der Schönling seines Seal Teams, den Alpha Squad, und so zieht er mit seinen strahlenden blauen Augen, blonden Haaren und unendlichem Ch...more
Brockmann actually plays on that impression with a humor and a playfulness that makes Lucky human and quite an appealing hero. The female lead is one of the series stronger female lead. She has a wicked sense of humor (she nicknames Lucky...more
I’m finding that anything Ms Brockmann puts down on paper, I’m devouring. Another one that I LOVE!
Happy-go-lucky Luke aka Lucky become quite serious when a rapist is terrorising the women on base.
Heart broke for Blue, as one can imagine...hearing the news of a loved one badly harmed, no plane, train or car is ever fast enough...
They say the best husbands are the reformed Playboys right???
Lucky starts out a little hard to love, until we get to know him better along with this love interest. Tension mounts as the characters hunt for a serial rapist and no one is safe...
Could they have any worse image of Lucky? I really don't think so.
This is a case where if I saw this book without knowing anything about the author or the series I wouldn't have picked it up.
The scenes with the characters from the older books especially Lucy and Blue. And Joe and Ronnie. And Tasha and Thomas King.
The scene in Lucy's hospital room when Syd says she's worried.
The way Lucky asks Syd to marry him over the phone.
The way Lucky proposes again.
What a terrible cover, though! Suzanne Brockmann joked about it on her Facebook page, said she used to offer a "GET LUCKY Cover Fix-It Kit" on her website. Readers could send an SASE and she'd send back a smiley-face sticker and instructions as to how to apply it to the cover of their book!
In her free time she likes to sing and do volunteer work. She is a proud member of PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) as well...more
