Get Lucky (Tall, Dark & Dangerous #9)
An unlikely state of affairs. For Navy SEAL Lucky O'Donlon was the original love-'em-and-leave-'em guy. Used to women swooning at his feet. So how could it be that the frustratingly attractive journalist Sydney Jameson had nothing to offer him but one very cold shoulder?
Well, two could play at this game. But first things first--he and Sydney had a job to do...more
You really can’t go wrong with any of the books from Suzanne Brockmann’s Tall Dark and Dangerous series. Each is well written with a delicious alpha male hero and just the right amount of action, suspense and melodrama to keep you coming back for more. All the stories are loosely connected (following Seal Team 10’s Alpha squad members) yet still different enough tha ...more
So I haven't read any of Suzanne Brockmann's books before but I heard some good things about this one so I thought I'd try it out.
So since this story is part of a series I had to ignore a lot of the back-stories that kept popping up on previous couples in this series which wasn't a problem except I got so confused by the shear amount of them I got somewhat annoyed by the end of it and pretended they were random side characters rather than a group so ...more
Okay, so I'd fallen for Lucky during his brief appearance in Frisco's Kid, and way more so in The Admiral's Bride, but I had no idea I'd love him THIS MUCH!
I really hadn't expected to ever love a TDD character as much I love Blue, but good golly here we are!
Lieutenant Luke "Lucky" O'Donlon's a gorgeous blonde hair, blue eyed, walking-talking Ken doll, (as Syd often refers to him as "Navy Ken"). He's a ladies man who's never ...more
What a terrible cover, though! Suzanne Brockmann joked about it on her Facebook page, said she used to offer a "GET LUCKY Cover Fix-It Kit" on her website. Readers could send an SASE and she'd send back a smiley-face sticker and instructions as to how to apply it to the cover of their book!
Could they have any worse image of Lucky? I really don't think so.
This is a case where if I saw this book without knowing anything about the author or the series I wouldn't have picked it up.
Lucky es un idiota, Lucky es encantador. Sydney me repele. Sydney es bastante inteligente.
El libro se lee.

I really enjoyed this one. Playboy SEAL finds his (somewhat frumpy) One and she doesn’t believe him. Good suspense, nice romance, good use of past characters and ...more
I think the story is complete. Mystery, thrill, romance, etc. All-in-one!
Karakter cewenya ini karakter fav, ngga menyek atau manja atau terlalu feminin. Dia mandiri. Syd itu keras kepala tp juga ngga se 'keras' itu, bukannya itu daya tariknya yg bisa bikin si Lucky klepek-klepek :D
Setiap ada momen dimana Lucky cemburu atau merasa tersiksa sama si Syd rasanya gw ikut andil dicertanya.
Dan momen plg yg dinantikan setelah semua kepura-puraan, kiss, and the s**. Lucky akhrinya mau ...more

Luke "Lucky" O'Donlon ist der Typische ... ja um es mit Worten der Protagonistin zu sagen: Ken. Wer jetzt denke: "Hä? Ken?" Ja, genau. Der Ken von Barbie und Ken! Er ist der Schönling seines Seal Teams, den Alpha Squad, und so zieht er mit seinen strahlenden blauen Augen, blonden Haaren und unendlichem Ch ...more
Rating: Steamy thriller with hot SEALs!
Here’s where not keeping up with your book reviews can bite you. I *thought* I’d read this book, but I wasn’t sure, so I read it again. Not that it’s not a good book, but sometimes, a new cover can really throw you.
Short and sweet review: Lucky’s a Player, and so you know he’s gonna fall hard for a girl eventually. And this is his story, tied up with a serial-rapist/killer who may or may not be a SEAL or former-SEAL. ...more
I was looking forward to reading the story of lucky since he first appeared in this series. I really loved how miss brockmann wrote the h/h in the first half of this book. He was oh so sure of himself and she made fun of him (Ken).
But somewhere halfway through she stopped making jokes and turned into a pool of selfdoubt (not pretty enough) which killed the banter and quality talks between them. But miss brockmann's heroes are always better fleshed out than the heroines, so the repetit ...more
This is another one of those hot guy who is a player finds the one woman perfect for him. And a little bit of the girl who doesn't think she stands a chance because he's too perfect. I loved that when Lucky tried t ...more
This series was recommended to me by a friend when I said--help! I just watched Generation Kill and just simply need to be immersed in very hot military men... who don't just rescue some admiral's daughter who is randomly kidnapped, hijacked, etc. (I'm looking at you Seal whatever book!). This was great. Lucky was just awesome. Syd was charmin ...more

The rapist is leaving specific marks on the victim's bodies which makes everyone believe he is a SEAL, which is why the Navy is working with the police to track him down. Syd's main detractor in being included in this team is the egocentric Lt. Luke "Lucky" O'Donlon, who ...more
