I got a copy in exchange for an honest review

As this is an anthology I'll review each short story seperately and then a conclusion of my opinion of the anthology in general.

Lucky Break by Aria Kane
It was an okay story. The two main character haven't seen each other for quite some time and then run into each other while Andrea is called in to fix the dishwasher at the place Derek works. Most of the story is about them trying to figure out their feelings for each other and explaining the past whil

One Lucky Night is an anthology of five wonderful sexy tales, woven together with a single theme and taking place on one fateful winter night.

The stories take place in The Brazen Head, an Irish pub in the heart of Boston owned and run by the Whelan siblings. Jaimie Whelan is the eldest brother and his wife is the head chef, but the premise of the evening is that the two of them are trying to take a rare night off together - a date night - leaving the pub in the hands of the other siblings.

I love a good romance and have shied away from novellas in the past because the writing styles can be so different. I read One Lucky Night because my friend, Melinda Dozier, is one of the authors. I kept an open mind and I was so happy that I did!

One night can change everything.

Lucky Break by Aria Kane
The title, A play on words, this contemporary romance rekindles the romance of chef and repair woman. More than the dishwasher is broken. The two need to repair their broken hearts at this lucky chance meeting. A second chance to get it right. Sexy and satisfying.

It really was One Lucky Night when I was offered a chance to read an ARC of this book. I read this book I absolutely loved this anthology with stories all about a Boston pub. I've lived right outside Boston my whole life (with a few years right after college spent in the city) so I loved reading these stories. (A quick note: I read this book in the week before the Boston marathon. The news here was filled with stories of the marathon bombing victims from the year before and this anthology was a ...more

4 out of 5 for this reader folks!

This is a harder review for me as One Lucky Night is an anthology written by five different authors and consists of five different stories. I tend to avoid anthologies as they usually are short stories weaved into a series and I’m rarely reading all the series that are involved. I decided to approach this anthology differently and not worry about

Thank you, Aria Kane, for giving me an ARC, ecopy of One Lucky Night, for an honest review.
First of all, I love how all five of these stories are connected. All five couples find love on the same night, at the same place. Events from one story will coincide with events in another. At times, the reader will get to see the same event through multiple view points throughout each story. It made for a very entertaining read.
Also, I loved that the old man with the white beard, gray three-piece suit an

The Brazen Head Pub sounds like a fun place and with all the hotties running around, it’s not hard to figure out why!

LUCKY BREAK by Aria Kane, LUCKY STAR by Grace Teague, A NEW TUNE by Ana Blaze, LEXI’S CHANCE by Constance Phillips, and DRINK OR DARE by Melinda Dozier are fun, quick reads that will entertain. There is nothing too heavy or dark, but there are lots of laugh-out-loud moments and swoon-inducing sexiness. I loved that all the connections were a long time coming. No love at first sigh

Alright, you all know how I feel about novellas: I don't love 'em. Anthologies are just a bunch of novellas grouped together, so I don't love those either. But this anthology from Aria Kane, Grace Teague, Ana Blaze, Constance Phillips and Melinda Dozier is the anthology to prove me wrong. Sure, it's filled with novellas but first, they're GOOD novellas. Great novellas, even. Second, each of them revolves around a bar,

This was a fun and entertaining read that centered on events and characters that work and/or visit Boston’s Brazen Head Pub. I enjoyed the concept of the old Irish Man handing advice to each individual in a subtle way so that they could approach their love interest, reconsider a situation or just enlighten that particular character in regards to their love life.

Lucky Break - This story combined two of my favorite tropes, romantic interest in a best friend's sibling and a reunion. Now I'm of a mind that when one partner leaves and breaks the heart of the other, the offender must suffer trials that make Hell look like Club Med. Well, that's hard to do in a novella. And, most characters in romance literature (except for the villains) are much nicer and more forgiving than myself. Thus the title, it was indeed a Lucky Break for Derek, in more ways than one ...more

One Lucky Night – An Anthology – 3.75 stars

This is a romantic collection of five, interrelated short stories revolving around one, snowy night in an Irish pub in Boston. Each character meets an eccentric old man, gets lucky in love, and has some hot sex. This is a lovely collection which is like comfort food for the heart. Think shepherd's pie, chicken pot pie, and boxty accompanied by a pint of Guinness.

“The best ones are always worth the extra work.” – Old man at the bar (A New Tune by Ana Blaze)


That pretty much sums up each story in this anthology.

Every person in each couple had to work to make the relationship happen. It wasn’t about attraction and lust. It was about forming an actual bond that started in the heart, overtook the mind, then were made real by touch and word. And I liked that these relationships didn’t come easily for anyone.

One Lucky Night is a 5 novella in one book !!! Not just that, the novellas all have to do with people who all have something to do with the Boston’s Brazen Head Pub. It is stories that somehow all work their way together to become one larger story. I am from Boston and love a good story that has anything to do with my hometown. This book did not disappoint. The highlight was the cold and snowy night that everyone encountered. I don't NOT miss those days! But cold and snowy night do make for good ...more

4.0 Star Review - One Lucky Night

5 stories all connected by the characters of the stories and the pub.

Each story tell about a new couple but still has the same main characters.

These stories could be stand alones but work together to create a series type story.

All the couples had a history and worked together to fall in love.

Takes place in Boston area in the Brazen Head Pub.

You have a chef, a rocker, a long time friend, a bartender, and a paramedic.

All super hot.

This Anthology is five stories that all take place on the same cold and snowy night in an Irish American pub in Boston, Massachusetts. In each of the stories you get to see through two of the characters points of view. I love the way all of the stories intertwine, and there is this one intriguing elderly Irish gentleman, who gives out sage advice, in each of them. What happens in these five stories heats up a cold Boston night!

Lucky Break by Aria Kane Review

Four years ago Derek left Andrea because he felt like he was honoring his best friend’s last wishes, even though it tore him apart to do so. Andrea never got over Derek. She had been in love with him for as long as she could remember, but he ripped her heart out when he left without a word. When a repairman is called to fix the dishwasher where he is the chef, the last person he expects to walk in the door is Andrea. They are both thrown for a loop as they are for

I don't read many compilations. Usually I find the stories too short, too scattered. But one thing I do enjoy is when they are all intertwined together. It's like getting multiple perspectives, and I just love that. So when the opportunity came to read One Lucky Night, I was more than happy to hop on board.

My first pick is Lucky Break, by Aria Kane. Lucky Break is the story of Derek and Andy, well... Andrea. Derek is a chef at The Brazen Head, an Irish bar that this whole compilation kind of cen

I love when anthologies all revolve around interlocking characters or some central theme. For this contemporary romance anthology, all 5 of the stories take place in the same night at the same Irish Pub in Boston. There is this mysterious old man that shows up in each story and the characters interlock with each other in some way. One story is about the cook of the Irish Pub, one is about a waitress and a singer that they have performing

The one thing I loved most about this anthology is that each author wrote a story about different characters that either own, work at, or frequent the same pub. So, is was like one big story written by five different authors. I loved it! Also, even though each story is less than a hundred pages, they were complete stories. There is one person that appears in each story and that is the old Irish man. He appears in each story and gives advice, then disappears like a ghost. I highly recommend readi ...more

When I first heard about One Lucky Night, it was billed as magical realism and I was so damn excited to read it. Romance and magic, that’s what I live for. But the small thread of magic—by way of a mysterious old Irish gent—while a cool way to tie the stories together, is really just enough to say the novellas have magic in them and didn’t feel like magical realism. Not that that’s a bad thing, just not what I was expecting.

This book has five short stories that all interconnect. Each story is about one couple, but when you put them all together you get the whole story of what happened that night at the Brazen Head, which I thought was fun. Though the stories are short, they are satisfying romantic stories. There may not be time for a HEA, but they at least end with hope. One of my favorites was A New Tune. I think this quote sums up why I liked Cian so much:
