I received an ARC of Lucky Me by Kelly Moran in exchange for an honest review.

This short story was well written, the story flows. The characters are lovable, and grip you from page one. You get to know the characters pretty well with it being a short story. I need more of the characters.

Declan O'Leary's family is cursed. Declan doesnt want to get to close to anyone but when he first sees a lady at the park, he wants to meet her, wants to know her, he wants her.

Lily Durand is the lady from the p

"I give you my love and my luck."
I was "lucky" enough to catch a sneak peek at Lucky Me; Kelly Moran's contribution to the Getting Lucky anthology. This SEXY novella will have you praying for the curse to be broken!

Declan O'Leary knows love doesn't exist for him and it's never really bothered him before. A chance meeting and a glimpse of her tattoo has him spell bound, wishing he wasn't cursed. Months later he meets her again, but this time she won't easily escape.
Lily Durand has her own histo

I received an arc of Lucky me by Kelly Moran. This story is amazing. I couldn't put it down. I loved getting to know these characters. For a short story there is enough information on the characters that you get to know them pretty well. I didn't want this book to end.

I was gifted an ARC of Kelly Moran's Lucky Me from this anthology, in exchange only for my honest review.
I have to say I love anything that includes Irish luck, or in this case an Irish curse. Declan's family has been cursed many many years, and he just wants to love and be loved without death happening. Chance has it where he sees a redheaded woman who claims his thoughts. Sees her several more times before he will actually have the pleasure of spending time with. Lily, who has decided to live

This Anthology is a MUST read! The proceeds are going to a great cause as well.

Not this one, all the stories were very well put together. They flowed and weren't rushed. (Yay)

This was a good story in the Getting Lucky Anthology. I was thrilled to read Right Kind of Wrong by K. Renee it was very entertaining and wonderful to read and enjoy. This was one of my favorites by this author. I enjoyed reading and getting to know the characters of Dannicka and Saw. Saw was total all alpha and Dannicka was a strong lady to follow and loved her character. Saw was another tough guy who melted the pages on my kindle he was so uber

Holy hotness! What an amazing short novella from one of my Fave authors!

It's hot, It's sexy and it's freaking smoking. The characters were superb, Declan was just the right amount of cocky and arrogant to make him hot stuff. And lily was strong and sweet and one of those characters you instantly like.

Maybe a little Irish luck had something to do with Declan O'Leary and Lily Durand finally meeting after all the run ins they'd had over the last 9 months. Declan was already a little in love or lust by the time he finally got to introduce himself to the most beautiful and mesmerizing women he'd ever met. But because of the family curse, Declan knew it could never last so he put a week's time limit on their spending time together. Then they'd just go their separate way. What he didn't plan on was ...more

Lucky Me by Kelly Moran - I was fortunate to read Kelly Moran's contribution to this anthology and I LOVED it! Declan O'Leary's family has been cursed in love. Some with divorces and more tragically, in death. When Declan sees Lily across a park, he knows he is doomed. Lily Durand evades Declan more than once. But once Declan finds her in his brother's pub and finally speaks to her, there is no going back. Declan tries to keep Lily at a safe distance for her sake. Maybe Lily can break this curse ...more

I received an ARC of Kelly Moran's Lucky Me in exchange for an honest review.

For Declan and his family the four leaf clover is far from lucky. In fact due to a curse past down the line the four leaf clover has been bad luck. When Declan spots Lily on a bench he can't get her out of his thoughts. Finally having a chance to talk with her he makes a deal with her for the week. As their time together reaches the end they struggle with a choice that could mean a future together or the curse striking

Holy cow! This anthology is filled with stories from some amazing authors. This book is a steal considering the amount of stories in it and the fact that its these authors. I can't wait to buy it!

This review is based on Right Kind of Wrong by K. Renee

OMG I loved this story! I loved Sawyer aka Saw. He is such a tough, alpha, bad boy biker but his heart is so pure especially when it concerns those he loves. He has known Sage for awhile and she always tells him stories of her sister Dannika and Saw

Review for Chance Encounters by L. B. Dunbar.

I loved everything. Every-freaking-thing. The depth LB can give to a character in a short amount of time is amazing. The twists and turns a story can make in her hands is fantastic.

Chance and Keli have sparks flying from the get-go, and holy smokes I thought the roof of the inn was going to be engulfed in flames. Assumptions, bad life experiences, lack of communication, and some SERIOUS sexual tension create a fantastic story-line.

I hate to say too

I received a copy of Lucky Me from Kelly Moran. As always Kelly didn't let me down and wrote an awesome novella. Declan kept meeting up with Lily in different places in his life but he couldn't fall in love due to the family curse! Lily wanted to find adventure and turned to Declan for it. Lucky Me was a quick read but very enjoyable and fun story!

I was given the Arc of Chance Encounter by L.B. Dunbar for a fair and honest review.

If this was just a small taste of Keli and Chances story... I can honestly say I am looking forward to the rest. Not wanting to reveal too much, this story is set in Ireland, where Keli, who comes from Chicago, is in search of a specific man.... and in her search she finds Chance, a man who seems to have a thing against Americans.
If all the stories in this anthology as are well written as this, I can not wait to

This is a fantastic novella that will grab your attention from the start. Keli meets Chance while on a trip to Ireland and soon the sparks are flying - in more ways than one. I really enjoyed the unexpected turns this story took and I can't wait for more!

This book was amazing. The writing is perfect and the story is very believable. I love MC books. This book brought a whole new light to the MC world. They weren't outlaws. I loved this perspective. The love story between Danni and Sawyer is like a fairytale. Perfect story. Can't wait to see what else K writes. She is amazing.

I have read Chance Encounter by LB Dunbar in this anthology. It amazes me how a short story takes root and you know that there is so much more that needs to be written. I can't wait for Ms. Dunbar to give this couple another look. Chance is a sexy Irish hunk that despises Americans but is strangely drawn to Keli, who is in Ireland in search of a man. She searches for a specific man, which does not set well with Chance. The story is funny, sexy, flirty, and a bit sad. Not everything is as it seem ...more

Review based on Lucky Stud by Rebecca Elise

Rebecca has done it again! She captured my heart with Briony and Kurt. I give this book 10 stars!!!

Kurt is a simple bar owner and cousin of the newest vaudeville. As soon as his favorite cousin calls and asks for a favor he knew he was done for. Her best friend and maid of honor is in desperate need of help and place to stay. When Brian comes to check out the place and move in Kurt is hit with the overwhelming feeling of need to consume this beautiful

I'm a huge Shantel Tessier fan, so when I heard she was going to be apart of the GettingLuckyAnthology I just knew I had to get my hands on it. I'm not the biggest fan of anthology's, only because it always leaves me needing more and guess what...I NEED MORE. I hope these two get a longer book, because I loved them.

Ashlyn and Ryder together are pure heat. But apart they are just as equally likable. Ashlyn is going on spring break with her best friend to drink the days away and party like a rock

Chance Encounter
I loved the way LB merges Irish folklore and magic into this story. Combine that with common misconceptions, preconceived ideas and one persons deception and you have drama with a cliffhanger to boot. I can not wait for the rest of this story to unfold and see what decision Keli makes.

Great hot short stories that leave you wanting more. I loved Chance Encounter. Chance and Keli had chemistry but brought out the worst in each other. Two people that are trying to get over tragedy find each other. Then Ms. Dunbar had to throw a twist in at the end. Love at Lucky Stable was a short story that two people who are drawn to each other. Ms. Hampton writes characters that tug at your heartstrings. Lucky Me is a steamy read. Declan and Lily have a sexy, steamy connection that will be bu ...more

Declan O'Leary is mesmerized by Lily Durand but he knows he can't have her in his life for long. You see his family is cursed! Bad things happen when they fall in love. So he's c

Holy heck are Ashlyn and Ryker hot in this book. I have not had the pleasure of reading the other stories in this anthology but if they are anything like Wish me Luck I'm really going to love this entire anthology. I've read Shantel's books before and loved them and this one is no different.

I'm hoping Ryker and Ashlyn get a longer story than what is in here because I really need more of them. This story is short, sweet, and scorching hot. a must
