Book Review: Lucky Streak

Lucky Streak by Carly Phillips

The Corwin curse says that if they love a woman bad things will happen to them. So when Mike Corwin goes to Vegas - drinks to much, meets a woman, and accidentally gets married - the last thing he wants is a real life wife.

But Amber is exactly what Mike wasn't expecting. She runs off with his money in the middle of the night to do who knows what - but she returns. What does she want from him? Can he save her from the demons that follow her? What does that mean for the curse?

Thoughts: I liked the previous book in this series and I liked this one as well. Imagine if you lived in a family where everyone got divorced. You wouldn't trust in marriage either. For this family - it is one step farther - they believe they are cursed.

So what follows is a man who is afraid of commitment (or at least of love) and a woman who is finally ready to open her heart. But of course there is always is a twist - and for her being a con-woman married to a police officer makes life a bit difficult. But it is fun. I liked the characters. I enjoyed seeing the progression of the people we had met before in this book. I can't wait to see how it all ends.

What genre would you consider this?
