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

Sexy, funny, and all around enjoyable!

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.
4 Stars

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
Lucy + Michael is always a win for me.

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.

Ms. Lennox has once again reminded me why I devour every book she writes... everything from the Marion Grannies showing up on Hudson's flight to Ireland to the Ffing amazing epilogue was epic! I think Hudson and Charlie have taken the honor of my favorite Lennox couple ever! Their chemistry and love was just incredible. I loved the whole story, especially Mama the collie and of course all the crazy Wilde sibs and grandpas, etc. Ms. Lennox has the honor of being in my top 5 m/m romance authors ev ...more

This was pretty sweet. Follows the same formula of romance- drama- challenges- romance ... cute, fun and adorable really ! So Hudson, the straight brother meets Charlie the fem bartender while trying to please his ex’s father. Yes of course there are issues, first of all with Hudson being straight. His attraction to Charlie takes him by surprise and he’s is a mess trying to work it all out. Of course emotions are involved and then the whole Wilde family- seriously Hudson doesn’t stand a chance ! ...more

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
Virgin MM!!
A realistic introspection of sexuality

Another great add to the series, keeps getting better and better with each new book. Finally we get to see how Hudson turns out and the right man to make his dreams come true. What I really liked from the start was that the beginning of each chapter had a inner thoughts (insights, words to live by, revelations, quotes etc) from the main characters, I really like this idea it was the perfect way to see where their minds and feelings are as they progress in the story. We find out what happened to ...more

I stopped reading Lucy Lennox for awhile - but then really enjoyed a few her recent releases and have been going back through some of her older stuff.

I'm really liking this series. Nothing super wowing, but all have been really enjoyable.

Easy reads
no ridiculous drama
plenty of steam
likable characters
good banter

What's not to like?

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

*** This is as cute as any story can be ! ***
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
DNF at 44% I really tried to like it, and I am a minority here with this book but I was not a fan of Hudson. He was irritating af. Charlie was ok, I guess. There is the reason I don't read books with too much humor, and this time it was not for me. It's hit and miss with this author for me, and this time it was a miss. First intimate scene between them was ouch. I am glad they got their HEA though but it will forever remain a mystery for me how they got there. I hope I will have better luck with ...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

I will try to keep this review brief. It is described as an m/m romance, but I would like to see sub-genres used when advertising a book (examples: m/m cowboys, m/m military, m/m straight but suddenly gay) and in the case of "Hudson's Luck", by Lucy Lennox, we have a hybrid of m/m straight but suddenly gay for Hudson and m/m feminine for Charlie. I have this theory that since most m/m romances seem to be written by women and read by women, there are often main characters that are small and femin ...more
I went directly to Hudson's story after Wilde Fire and inhaled the whole book in just a few hours. I'm not kidding, Lucy Lennox and the Wilde family are my book-crack and I'm happy with that! 💕

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!

There's so many things about this book that didn't work out for me. I was not a huge fan of Hudson. His actions made me wanna pull my hair on so many occasions. GFY is a trope that's usually not working for me, however I'm slowly warming up to it. Might have been too many GFY books in a row for me though. I just didn't buy it with Hudson. It felt very constructed. ...more
5 stars! 😍 Loved it!! I have been a huge fan of Ms Lennox since "Borrowing Blue" and consider her Made Marian series as one of the best MM books in the contemporary genre. So obviously I have been on the Forever Wilde bandwagon since the first book with West came out and although I really liked both his and Felix's stories, Otto's story was a bit disappointing and I felt that the Lennox magic was missing. However with Hudson's story the ✨sparkle ✨is back!! This book had the full dose of Ms. Len ...more
Unfortunately while I liked this overall, I didn't love it and it's been my least favorite in the series so far.

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

Oh, this was CHARMING. As hot as the cover model is - those eyes! - I wish we could have gotten feisty Charlie, the twink with the long red hair. He is just lovely, inside and out, and I fell for him hard (as did Hudson, which isn't exactly a spoiler as this is a ROMANCE and one would hope that would be the case. LOL).

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

4.25 stars

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
Goddamn this was cute. I've been on a bit of a sobbing while reading kick lately and this one was a breath of fresh air. No major drama or heartbreaking backstories here. I will admit that Hudson was driving me a bit batshit with his indecisiveness and seeing how it was affecting Charlie was just plain sad. However, he did eventually come around and oh boy, did he come around. Holy cow, these two were burning up the sheets. Very nice! I adore all the entire Wilde family so I just can't wait to s ...more

Missed Opportunity

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.

3.5 Stars rounded down because this didn’t give me enough to get it to the 4-stars *shrugs*

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

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.

Ugh almost done with this review and Safari crashes on me and loses it all...let's try this again.

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
⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5 Stars

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.

Wall to Wall Craziness

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.

Oh my, how sweet was this story? Wait, how sweet was Hudson? This is totally in the running for favorite Wilde story! Of course, it will be hard to beat Felix but man, this came close.

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
