I'm referring to the constant almost macabre stereotyping. The fact that the only full-black male has three women he's sleeping with. The fact that Ty likes gansta rap. The fact that everything that he is is defined by the color of his skin, and not much else. I understand that KA's heroes are usually assholes; it's her thing. You get it or you don't. But why is it that the dishes the women made were Like what the actual fuck, black people only eat cornbread and grits, right? And why the fuck is Lex so special because she fucks black guys? Is she taking one for the white girl team? Is there something better about lowering oneself to permit a black cock to enter her? I'm sorry but what the fuck. Lines were crossed, and nobody seems to have a problem with the constant stuffing of black people into KA's stereotype box. That's what I mean by why is this book so racist.(less)

5 LUCKY Stars!

Just when I thought it couldn't get any better than Tate's book in the Colorado Mountain series... well, I was wrong! Ty and Lexie's book was just as good, maybe even better! I absolutely LOVED it!

Ty and Lexie did things backwards... within 48 hours of meeting each other, they were married. Ty just got out of a 5 year stent in prison for a crime he did not commit. Lexie is doing a favor for a low life who was friends with her dead boyfriend. They married for appearances only, or

Lady Luck was so good. I think it is tied with Max's book for my favorite
UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish

Lady Luck is the third book in the Colorado Mountain series and, in my opinion, has the best storyline of the three. I adore Ty Walker who, if you can believe it, is even more crass and foul mouthed than either Max or Tate… or maybe even both Max and Tate combined! So yeah, be prepared, because this book takes crassiness to a whole new level! In fact, I made up a word to describe Ty – crasshat… a crass asshat… And I wouldn't change a thing about him.

So, let’s break it down. What is it that has

Here we are again and it's amazing that a book I've re-read/listen over and over still gives me the same KA high that I love. Honestly, there is NO other author I re-read as much or as often as Kristen Ashley. Lady Luck is one of my favourites and I'm sure I will be back again next year.

July 17, 2017. Re-read/listen to for the 20 billionth time and I still love it. How is it that a Kristen Ashley re-read still gives me happy buzz's and the shakes and shiveries?

Overall Opinion: This was an enjoyable re-read. I found that I didn't remember every single detail, so it was nice to read again. I liked experiencing their progression into love. I also liked how Ty melted from being a cold, closed off man into one that loved Lexie openly and was affectionate with her. Because of the revenge aspect this did have a lot of o
Huge 5+ stars 

Wow! What a fantastic story! Lady Luck was a book I was leery to read. I knew I would struggle with the hero, knowing how crass and disrespectful toward women he was, and I was right. What I didn't expect, however, was that I would ended up not only loving this passionate, emotional, intense, and captivating story, but I would also fall head-over-heels in love with the hero. 

There were many things I loved about this book, but it was the love story between the hero and heroine, Ty a

Still a 5 star read for me.

I love how Ty "enters" the story. The first time we "see" him.

I glanced at my watch to see it was twelve oh seven and then I glanced down the tunnel again and something was moving though the shimmers. That path was long and the heat on the day was immense so I didn't see much but something made me keep watching.

And as the thing moving through the shimmers formed into a man, I kept watching as my breath started sticking in my throat.

A bunch of my fellow romance lovin’ Goodreads friends have been reading and raving about Kristen Ashley, and with great reason. Lady Luck is the third book in the Colorado Mountain series, and after reading it, I’m now 3 for 3 with her books being big 5 star winners that I loved.

There’s just something about her stories that grab me right from the beginning and never let go. I especially love how the details, descriptions, and conversations depict such vivid image

I listened to the audio of LADY LUCK. At one point "lady luck" wasn't on my side because audibles had me update my app in the middle of listening to this book. Unfortunately, it started the book over for me. *ugh* It took some time but I figured out where I was in the book and was able to finish it.

I enjoyed the story but it took a bit for me to get used to the narrator's voice for Ty. Her male voice wasn't what I had pictured in my mind.

Another entertaining Kristen Ashley book.

4 Lucky Stars!!

I'm so happy to say I really enjoyed this KA. She's either a hit or a miss and lately she's been missing the target, but this one is definitely a winner. Ty and Lexie...I don't think I'll ever forget this couple.

Full review to come after I've gathered my thoughts:

Finally starting this after all these years!🙌🏽

My favorite Colorado <3 This is a beautiful story, even if it's about revenge and rasizm, KA really knows how to write them.

10 stars from me :)))

The writing - I don't usually comment on KA-s writing style, I know a lot of people don't like it, concerning the grammar and stuff, but I'm not one of them. When I read I read emotions, and KA novels have that, and it's pictured perfectly. I mean, like in this one, when we read from TY-s point of view, every freaking time he got that thing that pier

KA never disappoints!! Her Alpha males are fan-fucking-tastic!!

Ty Walker was wrongfully imprisoned for 5 years. The day he gets out, Lexie is there to pick him up as a favor to mutual friend. Ty talks Lexie into posing as his wife in order to keep is cover and help him clear his name. Of course they eventually fall in love for real - I mean Ty is a walking sex god - who wouldn't agree to marrying him????

As much as I hated Motorcycle Man, I *still* thought that maybe I was missing something. Did I pick the wrong book? Will I find the magic with another?
The answer is no.

*I've edited this dang thing so many times and it never sounds exactly right to me so bullet points it is. Blerg.

Another KA book, another hot couple, an alpha male with Neanderthal manner, a lost girl in a tough situation, and a struggle to find trust in humanity and each other... They are both damaged, craving what most take for granted, but seems forever out of reach for the two of them... Will Lady Luck look favorable upon them at least this one time?

Can't believe I didn't review this the first time 'round. Discovered Kristen Ashley about a year or 2 ago and have read a lot of her books. Read this series last year and totally loved it. Saw that Kristen had another book out based in Carnal about Chace so decided to re-read Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountain Series), The Gamble, Lady Luck (Colorado Mountain Series) before starting the new book. Was it as good as I had thought it was - or should I say were they as good as I thought they were. Even ...more

Holy hell I forgot how much I loved the little endearments and plots-twists in this one. I didn't want it to end, and I read that epilogue through happy tears. My god, I am addicted to Kristen Ashely's writing.

It is official; I am a crazy, obsessed Kristen Ashely fan. If I am ever in need of a crazy romance fix (which is all the time and I ain't ashamed about nothing), Kristen is my go-to girl.

Her books are outrageous with borderline ridiculous plots

I won't rehash what happens next (you should have the pleasure of discovering that yourself) or their histories but trust they both have interesting ones. While their first meeting was bizarre, it was also kismet. What comes

A few weeks ago I saw a promotion saying The Gamble was free. Well, that being a favorite in one of my favorite Kristen Ashely series… it started me on a path of re-reads of the entire series. The first three entries of the Colorado Mountain series were part of that Golden Year of publishing for Ashley, 2011. It was during that time she put out twenty-one books…


Lady Luck has been a fan favorite forever… it has everything and more…And

Audiobook Review: 08/1/14

The audiobook is phenomenal! I didn't think I could love this story anymore than I already did, but Emma Taylor's fabulous narration took it to another level! She gets all of it! She gets the characters, she gets KA's writing, she knows how this book should be read! A highlight of the narration was for a character that I liked when I read the Lady Luck the first few times, but now I love him as much as any featured KA alpha hero. Angel Pena!

Um…our hero Ty has no clue how to use a verb or a noun. He grunts and barely puts two syllables together. How am I supposed to read a book with him in it.

Oh look he knows more than two words and I thought that would be better but OMG it is worse. He pretty much refers to stuff in terms of pussy and dick and

I just finished this as an 22 hrs audiobook and it was a GREAT one. Both the story itself, a much loved Kristen Ashley Colorado Mountain classic (book #3), and the audiobook edition narrated by Emma Taylor in an absolutely fantastic way. Ms Taylor could DO these MEN and it felt just as good as when you read a book in this style.

That was beautiful. It was just so beautiful. That ending. OMG. My heart. This book was filled with angst and sweet feels. Ty + Lexie = incredible. Lord, can I live in this world? Can I curl up in bed with Ty Walker at night? I'm just gonna pretend I can. LMAO!


There's nothing else to say. Nothing! I just LOVED IT.

4.5 stars

Still not a full 5 because even though this has some of the best angst in any Kristen Ashley novel, I always kind of lose interest in the story around 70%. Not in a bad way, but I found myself itching to skip ahead and reread Breathe (one of the best KA books EVER). So I enjoyed the glorious angst of this one, and I am moving on. I can totally see why this book is a favorite for many KA fans.

“<…>When I was done speaking I felt his body had gone still again, stone still.
And silent.
Then he asked quietly, "Nightmare?"
"Nightmare," I replied firmly.
Ty didn't move.
By a miracle, I held it together.
Then he moved but it was to rest his chin on my shoulder and I closed my eyes because I needed him to go, go, go so I could fall apart again on my own.
Then he said, "Your nightmare, mama, was my dream."
My heart clenched.
He kept going. "Never had a home until you gave me one."
My breath started sticking.
"Never had anyone give to me the way you gave to me."
My breath stopped sticking and clogged.
"Never thought of findin' a woman who I wanted to have my baby."
Oh God.
"Never had light in my life, never, not once, I lived wild but I didn't burn bright until you shined your light on me."
Oh God.
"Whacked, fuckin' insane, but, at night, you curled in front of me, didn't mind I did that time that wasn't mine 'cause it meant I walked out to you."
He had to stop. He had to.
He didn't.
"Your nightmare," he whispered, turned his head and against my neck he finished, "my dream."<…>”
“Baby?” he called and he felt her eyes on him.
“Yeah?” she replied, her sweet voice soft, another tone he was getting used to and this was because the last couple of days it had started to come at him often.
“Do me a favor?”
“In a second, I’m gonna pull over, get out my gun and give it to you. When I do, shoot me with it.”
“What?” she whispered.
“I’m facin’ another hour and a half of your music. I’d rather be dead.”
Silence then, “Shut up.”
