Recommended to jenjn79 by: continuation of a series
Really enjoyed this 2nd book in the "Lucky" trilogy. The characters, the storyline, and the romance all engaged me and had me wanting to keep reading.

The basis for this series is that there is a curse on the Corwin males where if they fall in love, they will lose their woman and their money. It's affected the family for generations and now the current group of cousins must deal with it to move on with their futures.

Mike Corwin is a Boston police officer. He goes to Vegas for his partner's weddin

Is it a bad thing when one of the secondary storylines captures your interest more than the main one? Maybe, maybe not, but that’s kind of what happened with Lucky Streak. For the most part I really liked Mike, the man is all kinds of upstanding, smexy as hell alpha male with a really good heart. Amber was a bit of a mixed bag for me. I admired how dedicated she was to her family and how good her heart truly was, but it took a long time for me to warm up to

This is a really cute book with alot of fun characters. CP is always fun to read, she writes a quick and entertaining story. I gave this one a four out of five.

Amber is a woman that has had to resort to counting cards in Vegas to win enough money to keep her father in a nursing facility because he has Alzhiemers. But she isn't happy with what she has had to do and wants out. Her partner doesn't want to let go though. When he threatens her a strange man steps in to help her.

FANTASTIC little chic flic romance story! ALL 3 of these books were highly enjoyable. Every character had me LMAO!
However, I will say that Lucky Streak (#2) was absolutely the funniest of them all. Hands down!
PS....I really wish Uncle Edward and Clara had their own story, even if it was a short story in an Anthology because that man had me in stitches....stinky Pete! Bawaaaaaaahahahahaha!

Who says curses are real? The Corwin men that’s who. Many years ago, there was a curse put on any Corwin man that dare to love. Mike is the 2nd of the Corwin men that are effected by the Corwin curse.
Mike is a police officer who is in Vegas for his friend’s wedding. When Mike walks into the lobby of the hotel he see’s Amber who he believes is being harassed by a guy (Mike isn’t sure who the man is). As Mike confronts the pretty lady and the man that’s bothering her, Mike is caught by the beauty

Imagine Drew Barrymore clapping in the Wedding Singer “YAY”! That’s me. I really really loved this story. Mike is in Vegas celebrating his partner’s wedding and saves Amber as she is being harassed. What happens next is a non-stop adventure. His father is a “crazy” recluse because of the Corwin curse. I really felt every emotion reading this book. I felt their connection from the very beginning and could believe them stopping at the Chapel to get married. Loved that you didn’t have to wait too l ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Mike and Amber meet in Vegas. They get married that night on a whim. Then Ambers past has her running scared. Though they just met, Amber feels connected to Mike. And even though they barely know each other, she wants to give marriage a go. She arrives back in Boston and surprises Mike. She also tells him everything he needs to know about her past. A lot of fun getting to their HEA as characters from book 1 are back and the funny way the curse is looked at by the Corw ...more

Refreshingly different. This is book 2 in the Corwin Family Curse Series. I really, really enjoyed this book. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. The characters are flawed and slightly quirky. There were a lot of fun moments, however once again Carly Phillips dealt with the subject of mental illness and Alzheimer's with grace and compassion. I truly loved this book.

Even though this book is in a series, it can be read as a standalone. This book jumped right in to the story. I love how it instantly grabbed ahold and had you keep reading. We got an unusual storyline, the idea of a curse, a quickie marriage in Vegas, and a reclusive in law, but still maintained a love story with characters you saw grow and connected with. You fell in love as they did. The love story scenes were as hot as all Phillips' books. There was quite a bit of action and mystery; you ne ...more

This book gives you a two for one. Not only do you get Mike and Amber's story which involves a quickly marriage in Vegas and two gamblers looking to reclaim their debt, but you also get the wacky story of Clara and Edward as they overcome anxiety and depression to rekindle an old relationship. The characters in this story were great and the plot twists and storylines gave new meaning to rollercoaster rides. Overall, a very enjoyable read as the second in the series about dealing with the Corwin ...more

Loved the updated version of Lucky Streak. At first glance Amber and Mike seem like oil and water, but as you get deeper into the book you fall for them faster than Amber fell for Mike's father! Amber sees all the little, and not so little details, so she realizes there's more going on with her father-in-law than the Corwin Curse. Mike grew up fearing the curse, will he be able to break free of it? These two are fun, and steamy , and full of adventure.

Love this story of family and love. Amber will do anything to ensure her father is well cared for that she gets into trouble. But Mike saves her and gets a wife out of the deal.

The second in the Corwin family Trilogy. A solid 3 3/4 stars.
So much better than the first book! This book centers around Mike Corwin, son of Edward, the eccentric brother. Mike became a cop to keep order in his life that he never had with his "out there" father. Mike meets Amber Rose while in Vegas for his partner's wedding. It is instant attraction and it all begins.
Here's what I liked:
I loved the chemistry between the Mike and Amber...there is plenty of work up to it and it works. It is night

This is the second book in Carly Phillips "Lucky Trilogy" and I loved it! As in the first book, the men of the family are concerned about a curse that was levied many years before saying that if you married for love you would lose your love and your fortune. The question is, will the curse rear its ugly head again or will love win?

Another fun, sexy and great read in the Lucky Series by Carly Phillips!

This time we get Mike's story. In typical Vegas fashion, he meets Amber, parties hard and they wind up married. But when he wakes in the morning....she's gone with the $150,000 that he won. The "curse" has struck again. Amber isn't a bad person. Just a desperate one trying to keep her head above water and her father in a nursing home that costs more than she has. After taking his money, Amber simply can't take the guilt she

Mike wins big in Vegas. He gets drunk, marries Amber and wakes up the next morning, no wife and no cash be found
The blurb is misleading, it's not a twist of fate that brings them back together, Amber goes back to Mike's house in Boston to give him the other half of his winnings. She used half to help out her Dad. I liked Mike, hes a sexy cop !

I really like this book and I've read it and the other two books in the trilogy 3 times but this time as I was reading it I noticed 4 or 5 grammatical errors. I would have liked the book even better if an editor had caught the errors. All in all this trilogy is great and Carly Phillips has been one of my favorite authors since I was about 14

I loved Mike and Amber. I thought this book had more substance, emotion and fast-paced. Amber's tenatious attitude got her things she needed and more. On the day she ended her partnership crossing the law, she married a cop!

Great read.

I enjoyed this continuation of the Cowin Curse series. Amber Rose is a very different heroine dealing with some unique inlaws in wonderfully wacky ways. Who ever would have thought of using a descented skunk as a weapon? Romantic and amusing. I look forward to the next book.

Ahh... The Salem Witch Trials, where witches were burned at the stake and family curses begun. At least, that is the belief of the Corwin men. It seems like they have no luck due to the curse...either in love or in money. Is it really the curse, though, or is it simply a case of bad luck...over and over and over again?

Mike, a detective with the Boston Police Department, is in Vegas for his partners wedding. Amber, a former con artist with a photographic memory turned hotel concierge, turned back

Lucky Charm is the 2nd book in the Lucky series and what a way to continue it with the “curse” over all the Corwin men…."Any Corwin male who falls in love will be destined to lose his love and his fortune”.

This is about Mike Corwin, a Boston police officer who goes to Las Vegas with a group of his fellow officers for the wedding of his partner. While there he meets Amber Rose Brennen and they end up have lots of fun, sparks fly and decide to get married.

OH! I really loved Mike and Amber's story! It was intense and oh so good. Lucky Streak was unexpected from what I had envisioned after reading the first book. I love an officer in uniform, but it is time for Mike to unwind in Vegas! What he did not expect was to run into some money and a wife!! But is it to good to be true? Uh Oh could it be that damn Corwin curse creeping up on Mike. Because in a blink of an eye he loses the money and the girl by betrayal! Again I thought I had mapped out the s ...more
