Lucky Clover Green is goal-oriented, despite her hippy parents. She has plans for her life and knows how to make them happen. There’s even a list to prove it.
1.Graduate from prestigious law school. Check.
2.Find an apartment in New York. Check.
3.Get engaged to the man of her dreams. Check.
4.Become partner at a law firm. Ch—Well, she’s still working on that. First she needs a job.
On impulse, she goes to a club with her roommate and meets the lead singer of the band, Toxic Suspects. His name is Maxwell Legend. He’s hot, gorgeous, and soooooo doesn’t fit into her plans.
And then her fiancé is murdered.
Turns out Lucky might not be so lucky…
Considering that I was so gushing about Not So Lucky, the first book in the Lucky Clover Romance series, I found Dead Lucky a disappointment.
RaShelle Workman still carries the mystery thread throughout this latest novella and excites her reader by unveiling more clues. However, I did not agree with RaShelle Workman’s own statement that Ares is an “alpha with heart”. Instead, I just found him obnoxious and think that the love triangle possibility he introduces is unnecessary.
Even the character of Lucky whom we met in the first book seems dumbed down and I hope that she regains some of her feistiness in Lucky in Love.
For readers expecting the same sexy moments in Dead Lucky as its prequel, you will be disappointed. The focus in mow much more on Birdy and solving the murder, although Maxwell still narrates his share of the story.
Lucky in Love releases in September 2015 and I look forward to seeing how the story develops.
