Don't ever accidentally propose to your girlfriend. In front of her family. Especially if her dad is your boss. Because when you make it clear you've made a mistake, he's likely to send you out of the country to get you as far away from his broken-hearted daughter as possible. It happened to me. Now I'm stuck in Ireland trying to redeem myself so I can get promo...more
Hudson's Luck isn't quite as good as Felix's story, but I liked it more than the arson plot in book 3. I think this one does work as a standalone, although I suggest reading at least book 1 first for optimal reading pleasure.
I'm not sure how authentic Charlie's Irish brogue was, but I did love his character. I'm a big fan of femme guys who take charge. And Charlie was sassy and snarky to boot.
As much as I liked Charlie, I had mixed feelings about Hudson. ...more
This fourth story in the always charming Forever Wilde series was not quite my favourite, but (so far) it’s a close second after the fabulousness of Felix and the Prince.
This installment split its time between Ireland and Hobie, Texas, following the deliciously sexy, wonderfully humorous, and delightfully sweet romance between the sensible and “straight” Wilde brother, Hudson, and Irishman Charlie Murray, who is as stunningly beautiful as he is headstrong and full of snark.
I enjoyed this ...more
I liked this story but didn't love it that much.
Coming off The Blueprint high, i guess i kept comparing the two, since they both deal with GFY/Bi trope.
Still it was cute and fluffy and the chemistry was there from the beginning, the sex was hot but not toned down compared to other Ms. Lennox's books.
Michael Pauley's enthusiastic narration made the story more enjoyable.
I can't wait to read Saint's story. ...more
4.5 Lucky Stars!!!
This is by far my favorite story of the series!! Hmmmm...wait, maybe it’s a tie with book #2... regardless, this book worked for me:
GAY/pan/bi for you
Gender fluid MC with a cocky Irish attitude
Delicious narration by Michael Pauley
Funny as hell—especially our straight Hudson
A realistic introspection of sexuality
UST up the wazoo
(-non communication....so hate ...more
I'm really liking this series. Nothing super wowing, but all have been really enjoyable.
no ridiculous drama
plenty of steam

The fourth book in Lucy Lennox’s Forever Wilde series, Hudson's Luck, is different because the Wilde brother at the heart of the story, Hudson, isn't gay or bisexual. He's always considered himself straight...until he meets Charlie Murray.
Hudson is adorably clueless, and his stammering and tripping over his own tongue can be very charming. Charlie is strong, fierce, loving, funny, and just so wonderful I wanted to package him up and keep him forever. I'm a sucker for men who embrace their femme ...more
A beautiful telling of personal discovery and a love that is destined. All of the circumstances that led Hudson, 34, financial wiz and inventor, to Charlie, a 28 yr. old ginger, in Ireland, are amazing.
Charlie is brave and true, loyal and lovely,
and a fantastic character.
Hudson, discovering his true self, has changed his life forever.
This adventurous pair are so adorable together, extremely hot and sexy; especially with all of Hudson's first M/M ...more
Hudson's Luck was an adorable story. Although not my favorite, I did end up enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would've. If I'm being honest, I need to find a guy with an Irish accent. I just need a Charlie, to be honest. He kind of stole my heart. He was sassy and snarky and just a very likable person.
Although I wasn't the biggest fan of Hudson for a while. I wasn't sure where Lucy was taking him. He annoyed me with his inner monologue with the fact that he wasn't gay and t ...more
I really liked Hudson and Charlie, they had great chemistry. Once Hudson decided how he really felt, they were as romantic and sexy as I could want. 🥰
Thanks so much to Resting Grinch Face Elf for the book, I loved it!
Resting Grinch Face Elf literally made my day with this sweet gift! Thanks so much ...more
In the past books Lennox has been able to make the trope-y things work and make sense for the most part, even if it was a little silly. But I don't know if she quite managed to make it work with this one.
I felt them not talking about shit annoying to no end. I wonder if it's just been building as the books have gone on - because the books have just LOVED that trope - or if it really ...more
Despite an amazingly sexy encounter in Ireland, it took a while - longer than I thought it would - for the two main characters to hook up stateside. But that made it more believabl ...more
Hudson’s Luck is the fourth book in Lucy Lennox’s Forever Wilde series, which follows the large Wilde family, mostly through their home town in Hobie, Texas. Each story features a new couple and as we haven’t learned much about Hudson up to this point, I think you could read this story comfortably as a standalone. However, all the books do include various Wilde family members, so being familiar with the series will definitely enrich your experience here (particul ...more
Here's what worked for me:
Charlie - He was a feisty sweetheart looking for a forever someone, but resigned to being alone because he lived rural, and it was difficult to meet eligible gay men. He had personality, loyalty, goals, hobbies. In other words, he was a well-rounded MC. Plus, I imagined him quite gorgeous. I've always had a thing for Irishmen. I know he was described as femme, but I've known pretty men who were still plenty manly, and that's how I pictured Charlie.
I loved reconnecting with the Wildes , other fun existing secondary characters(like my baby Stevie) and got introduced to the Irish crew who were as entertaining as the rest of them.
Also,the MCs were interesting, quirky characters. However, they seemed inclined to poor communication and sometimes jumped to conclusions without having all the facts. They did fix themselves and apologise whenever they were ...more
Red haired Irish man and a bright eyed Texan = sweet goodness and another Wilde biting the dust.
Hudson Wilde the suppose straight Wilde brother turns out to not be so straight after all. One trip to Ireland and an encounter with Charlie changes everything he ever knew.
I really loved this one. It was sweet with just enough angst for Hudson as he came to terms with finding himself falling for a guy for the first time. He and Charlie were adorable together. There was never a time where you really worried that these two wouldn't figure things out, but there was things they needed to work through. Of course Charlie had to risk himself trusting his heart to an ostensiv ...more
I’ve been enjoying this Wilde series but not loving it. Although this one was the best so far. Hudson was adorable. I think I’ve realized that Lucy Lennox is a little too sweet for me, a little too insta love. I tend to want more snark and a little angst. A little more tension. And that’s ok. We all have our things. 😀 I’m going to skip to Doc and Grandpa’s book because I’m curious. But after that I think I’ll take a break and possibly finish them in the future.
Read the blurb and then if you think this is going to be a viable GFY book, go ahead and read it. I liked it because Charlie is such a wonderful character, even though by description he is not my type--short and slightly feminine looking face. But, he is a ginger, and that counterbalances the shortcomings.
Hudson, on the other hand, is probably the least sympathetic Wilde sibling I've come across, although looking at him on the cover gave me a little pitty-pat in the porch. ...more
I was so unsure of how I was going to feel about this. I mean, it is ok for some of the brothers to be straight, right? Honestly, there are enough of them that are gay that I wasn’t sure Hudson needed to discover his new found sexuality. But oh, this totally worked! It wasn’t like a light bulb going off. It was all ...more
Very nice, sweet and enjoyable. I liked the first book in this series the most though.
