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 park.

When Declan finally gets to talk to her at the pub, he tells her to meet him at his place. They decide on a week long fing.. NO feeling, No Strings. Since the O'Leary Family is cursed, it can't be more than the week.

Will they be able to stick to the no Feelings, No falling rules they set? Or will they find a way to break the curse.

I look forward to reading other short stories in this set once it releases.

"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 history of hardship. Agreeing to not become attached, she and Declan embark on a steamy affair. With them both being honest about their pasts, their bond grows stronger and feelings evolve. When Lily presents the opportunity to break the curse, will Declan accept? Can this risky gift finally break the O'Leary spell?

There looks to be some great stories in this anthology. I can't wait to read the rest!!

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 life without regrets, decides to take Declan up on a interesting offer of spending a week at his place. No strings attached, or will there be? The friendship they develop turns into something more. But, alas love brings heartache and neither will risk it will they? A must read for anyone who has loved, lost and believes in luck and curses. 5/5 cross posting to My Reading reality .

Review based on Right Kind of Wrong by the lovely K Renee.

I cannot praise this Author enough. Excellent writing and a fabulous storyline.

Dannicka is shocked and scared when a total strange shows up at her door to tell her she is in trouble. Her sister, Sage, sends him to get her to safety. This beautiful strange is Saw.

Once at the club house Saw makes it known that Danni is his. When she finally get to see her sister, she learns that her Long lost Dad is the president of the club. This brings up so many emotions and hurt for Danni. She works through them but not without falling for Saw.

Saw appears rough and hard but he is really a sweet heart.

All the suspense and action of trying to keep Danni safe really kept me on the edge. Love love love this book.

Review is based on Right Kind of Wrong by K. Renee

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 hot. Looking forward to reading this anthology once it goes live.

* Review based on Kelly Moran's, Lucky Me.*
* ARC Received in exchange for an honest Review*

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.

l feel that a lot of novella's car seem rushed but this one was completely perfect and I honestly can't find a single flaw.

I can just imagine how amazing the rest of this anthology is and it's for such an amazing cause.

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 falling in love with her more each day. Was there a way to end the curse and find his happily ever after?

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?? This is a great novella! The characters are complex the steam is STEAMY!! I have preordered the anthology and can't wait to read the rest of the authors and their stories!

I was lucky enough to receive a complimentary copy of Lucky Me by Kelly Moran in the Getting Lucky Anthology, for my honest review. As always Kelly Moran does it again, I love every book I have read by her. She has became my favorite go to author. This story is no different has everything you want in a book, love, very hot, fun, exciting and the characters are very lovable. DeClan has a been cursed from love and Lily has a past of her own. These two decide to spend a week together with no strings attached, can they do it without string, you have to read it to find out. This is a must read boxed set, if the rest are as good as Kelly's you will not want to miss it.

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 once again.

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 has basically fallen in love with her. He has watched over her from afar for a long time waiting for the chance to approach her but figured she would never fall for someone like him. Then Sage gets into danger which now put Dannika in danger. Sage asks Saw to keep her safe and now that he has her he plans to make her his.

Saw is not the type of man Dannika would ever believe she'd fall for. She wants someone who doesn't go through women faster than she can go through underwear but there is something about Saw that draws her. He isn't what he seems and the more she learns about him the more she falls for him. Things won't be so easy though, with people having her second guessing and the imminent danger. Will their attraction turn into more? Will Saw be able to protect her?

I highly recommend this anthology I know that I will definitely be pre-ordering this baby!

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 much, you just need to read it.

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 read the rest! Considering the profits go to a great organization, it is nothing but a win-win in my opinion!!

Hot! Steamy! Sexy! Declan has been with a woman from afar. catcher glimpses of her in crowds and a party finally meeting Lilly at his brothers bar. Their chemismittenstry is off the charts hot. Declan knows the family curse is always in the back of his mind and he can't fall in love. Lilly a beautiful librarian sets out to prove him wrong. When Lilly hears about the family curse and figured out a way to try to break the curse. I found it very romantic. It made me swoon. This is a must read. I highly recommend this book. I'm looking forward to reading more books by Kelly Moran.

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.

This novella is short, sweet, sexy and funny all at once! I should say very sexy......

Declan O'Leary is a journalist living in St. Louis near his brother Aidan and nephew Liam. Aiden is a widower, his wife died in childbirth. Unfortunately for the O'Leary's this is a recurring nightmare. One hundred years ago a curse was placed on the family due to a great grandfathers mistake. There will be no females born to the family, and when the males fall in love they eventually lose their love to divorce or death. It seems unbreakable, so Declan is a love 'em leave em kind of guy...purely for their own safety. Until he sees a young woman sitting on a bench in a park he has taken his nephew to. He was instantly intrigued and attracted, especially when he sees a Shamrock tattoo on her neck. He casually says hello, goes off to watch Liam, and much to his disappointment she is gone. This same scenario happens a few times over the next several months. She is mysterious, beautiful and disappears in a heartbeat.

Lily Durand is a local librarian, quiet, reserved and somewhat shy. She was raised in the foster care system, separated from her sister, Iris, but they always kept in touch. Recently after a long struggle with drugs and rehab, Iris committed suicide. Lily decided it was time to break out of her shell and try new and exciting things. Sitting in Aiden's bar, Irish Eyes, she meets the mystery man who has fascinated her. Declan does not want her out of his sight, knowing she will be gone. He begs her to give him a week. Acutely aware of the curse, he figures after a week they could go their separate ways. Silly man......

This novella leaves you wanting more! The characters are fun, Lily and Declan sizzle together. The story takes place in a seven day time period, and I found myself not wanting the week to end!

I received this novella from the publisher for an honest review.

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 seems on the Emerald Isle but the ending leaves the reader wishing for more. If all of the novellas in this anthology are on par with Ms. Dunbar's then the reader is indeed Getting Lucky.

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 woman. Brian on the other hand has such a crush on Kurt she strings along douche bag after douche bag just to contend with his endless parade of woman. Finally the two come together in none other than a collide of extreme heat and swirls of desire!
This book is so good!!! I loved it, in every sense it is the romance your looking for with a twinge of suspense.
Thank you so much for allowing me the honor of reading yet another fantastic book!!

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 star. Little does she know she will meet a man that will give her everything she wants for one night, except she doesn't have any clue as to how this one night stand will in fact be connected to her in ways that will make your head spin.

This story is short but sweet and like I said will have you begging (Like I have) to the author to give you more. The perfect fast but sexy read.

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 burning up your kindle. I have read Worth the chase before and loved how Gia and Chase come together and navigate the twists and turns of their relationship.

If you want steamy, sexy, short stories with the luck for the Irish I suggest this anthology.

This review is based on the story written by Kelly Moran - Lucky Me. I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review. The story is intriguing and sexy with incredible characters and a nice easy flow to the story. If the other stories in the collection are anything like this one, I expect hours of great entertainment!

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 convinced her to give him one week. One amazing week and then he has to walk away. Can he do it???

I highly recommend this!

This review is for Wish me Luck by Shantel Tessier

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 read.

I love Kelly Moran's books, so I was excited to read this novella. Declan O'Leary's family has been cursed for 100 years...so he avoids any kind of romantic relationship with women, but that doesn't stop him from having hot sex with them. Put one fateful day it, Declan begins seeing a beautiful woman everywhere he goes. When he goes to find her, she always seem to disappear into thin air. Then she appears in his brother's bar and he has to talk to her, although he's only looking for a one night stand.
Lily Durand is not a "one night stand" kind of girl, but she is trying to make some changes in her life, "live a little" and "not play things so safe" after a tragic loss. She wants to experiment sexually and she believes Declan is the man for the job, no strings attached.
You won't want to miss what happens during this one week they have together. It's hot, sweet, intense and full of surprises!

I LOVED THIS NOVELLA!! I'd have to say it's my favorite! Be ready to fan yourself!
Holy hotness Mayra Statham! You nailed the sexual chemistry between Rex Malone & Keira Jennings. What better way to start a novella than in a bar in Vegas...Rex doesn't want to be there, his friend Josh made him go out for a night of fun. Rex changes his mind when Keira walks in the door. Keira is in Vegas at the insistence of her sister Jennifer to celebrate her recent divorce and to cut loose and have some fun. That's when Rex swoops in to the rescue when some other guys are trying to be pushy and buy the girls drinks, and they are just not interested. Jennifer heads off with Josh, leaving Keira with Rex to fend for herself.

I fell in for Rex Malone instantly, domineering and protective cop who likes to play with handcuffs in bed...YES PLEASE!! Newly divorced, now single mom Keira doesn't stand a chance again his charms & chivalry. But what happens after a wild night in his hotel room...he wakes up ALONE.

Neither Rex or Keira can get that one HOT night out of their minds, and neither one doesn't expect they'll ever see each other again, but luck has something else in store for them. There are some steamy scenes in this novella and some surprises along the way to make for a very interesting story!

I highly recommend this novella that is part of the Getting Lucky Anthology available for a limited time, ALL PROCEEDS BENEFIT National Alliance on Mental Illness.
