Pushing His Luck
Today is the biggest day of my professional career. I’ve got one shot to prove I can play with the big boys and the Lachlan account is my ticket. I’ve never been more prepared for anything in my life. So of course that went up in flames.
In hindsight, stopping to get my chocolate milk fix right before the big meeting might not have been the best decision. Neither was fighti...more

Charley Claybourne is an insurance assessor. She's started up her own business and is about to meet her new client, the billionaire daredevil Chris Lachlan who she has sort of won under false pretences because he thinks she still works for one of the most prestigious firms of loss adjustors in the city. Desperate to calm her nerves she tries to buy some lactose-free chocolate milk only to get into a tug-of-war with a handsome guy over the last bottle. Of course there's a chocolate mil ...more
Pushing his Luck is actually book four in this Billionaire Romance Series by Kira Archer. I felt like you could read this book having not read the others, I didn't, but there were some places where I was kind of confused. Like it's not described that well how Izzy and Chris know each other. I think it must be more in the other books. It's not a deal-breaker, but I did find myself scratching my head a couple times while I read ...more
I wasn't impressed, I couldn't believe they had deeper feelings for each other. They didn't share 'I love you's and it felt more like a HFN then HEA, the story lacked romance and heart. So sad, since I loved the first book in the series but all the other novels weren't better than mediocre.
This is a fun, sweet and short romance between Christopher Lachlan and Charley Claybourne. Right from the start of the story, where we have the meet cute over gluten free chocolate milk, I knew I was going to like these two characters.
Christopher Lachlan is the CEO of his own vacation home rental company. He has a meeting with Charley, the risk assessor, to get insured and remain CEO. (I have to admit, I was a little confused by this. Shouldn't he already have insurance?) Charley is tryi ...more
-Chris and Charley just never really hit me as a good couple
-The plot about his lifestyle being the pivot point for keeping his job rang false
-There seemed to be pushing "women power" almost to the point of it becoming political
- Very important point is I didn't really like the ending
- and finally of all the books in this series this was the least entertaining and really looked like she phoned it in when you co ...more
Overall rating: 3/5
Heroine (Charley Claybourne): 3/5 She has just started a new company as a risk assessor for insurance companies and she is very good at her job. She is very much a home body and tends to play everything safe.
Hero (Chris Lachlan): 3/5 He is an adrenaline junkie and wants to taste all that life has to offer. To keep his job as CEO however he needs to convince the risk assessor that he is no ...more
I received my copy through NetGalley under no obligation.
Okay so it starts before that scene! Pushing His Luck is a cute romance with some lovely excursions and some to die for adventure. (See what I did there!?!?!)
Looks, lust, and chemistry are keeping these two tightly wound. Add in the proximity, the comfort of being in each others company, and the urge to do naughty things....and you get Pushing His Luck.
It's cute, sexy, and dare I say the perfect way to fall in love. Sign me up for this t ...more
So, I liked this book but I also had a lot of issues with this book. So I love this series especially the first two books, but after those it kind of dropped off for me. First I'm going to start with the things I liked. Honestly, I love that it's in the same universe as the other books and I like how involved the characters in the previous books are. I also liked Charley and Chris together I think ...more
Charley is Izzy's cousin and after Charley gets canned from her previous job and starts her own business, Izzy prompts Chris to meet with Charley. If Chris can't get insurance, he'll lose his busi ...more
If you’re in the mood for a light, fun and sexy read Pushing His Luck will be a great choice!
Charley’s luck isn’t really the best. A traumatic event in her past left her in desperate need to keep control of everything at all times… and like a self-fulfilled prophecy, she ends up being a klutzy duck 90% of the time. With a career as a risk assessor, she lives for safety and prudence and she is very comfortable with that.
Chris’ middle name would probably be Daredevil (if he had one, I do ...more
That was one of the most amazingly unexpected endings I've ever read.
This book was a-ma-zing. I honestly can't describe how much I love couples who are complete opposites but still find common ground.
Charley and Chris met because she was hired to asses risk for his company and what she saw clearly indicated that she so wouldn't recommend him and that was when Izzy, Charley's cousin and Chris' frie ...more
"Damn, the Disney Prince smolder was strong with this one."
Christopher Lachlan is the CEO of vacation rentals who is just trying to get insured so he can remain the CEO. Being a total risk-taker and adrenaline junkie, he is the exact opposite of Charley. Cautious and ...more
I'm going to start this review by saying I think you can read Pushing His Luck as a standalone book in the Winning the Billionaire Series, but bits of the story and a majority of the supporting characters' lives won't really make a lot of sense without it. I'm saying that from experience. My recommendation would be to read the whole series before this one to avoid confusion.
I was drawn to Pushing His Luck du ...more

Charley made her meeting and she was surprised the client she was supposed to assess about insuring was the same guy that tried to grab her chocolate milk. Christopher Lachlan needed insurance to stay as head of the company on vacation h ...more
