What’s your lucky number?
Lyla Wilder is done being the shy, chemistry nerd extraordinaire. While every other college student is out having fun, Lyla is studying. With her cat. Well, she’s played it “safe” quite enough, thank you. So she creates a “College Bucket List”―with item #7 being a night of uninhibited, mind-blowing sex…
But she needs some help from her man-whore best friend.
Hockey player Beck Davenport thought Lyla’s transformation would be subtle. Man, was he wrong. With every item she ticks off, Beck finds himself growing seriously hot for his sweet, brainiac best friend. And if he’s not careful, he’ll end up risking their friendship in order to convince Lyla that he might just be her lucky #7…
Review by Lisa Markson
This was truly a amazing book. I loved the dynamics of Lyla and Beck. The characters were highly well developed. These two had a strong bases for their friendship. What happens when you finally decide to change your whole life because you are tired of how the world seems to view you? You create a bucket list and recruit your male best friend who is viewed as what I would consider a “Manwhore”. Lyla wasn’t aware that it is not necessarily how the world views your outside it is seeing that your inside is so beautiful and you just need to believe in yourself and project that to the world and then people see you for who you are and that can only make your life have so much more meaning. I love how her male best friend really truly sees Lyla for the first time other than being her buddy. With Beck she learns to gain confidence in herself. The flow of the storyline was seamless and I personally found no flaws in anything that was written. It was a story that you couldn’t put down from beginning to the very end. The author held me captive with no where to go except in finishing this great book. I have read several books by this author and have found it isn’t your typical NA book where most authors are walking on the very grey line of the genre of NA and erotica. This book isn’t about the sex, its about two best friends finally finding themselves then totally creating the perfect relationship that could be timeless due to the fact they started out with a truly fantastic friendship. I highly recommend this book and every other book this author has written. She has the gift of words where she is able to give her characters 3 dimensional qualities and being able to mesh a great love story mixed with lots and lots of comical moments that had me rolling over laughing for some of the situations that these two characters get into. I received a NetGalley copy in exchange for a honest and unbiased opinion. I will definitely be recommending this to all my friends.
Cindi Madsen is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.
