Product Description

Lucky O’Toole, the vice president of Customer Relations for the Babylon, one of Las Vegas’s most over-the-top strip properties, is seriously regretting booking a reality television show, The Forever Game, in the hotel’s small theater.

The four contestant-couples add their own mischief to the incendiary mix normally available in Sin City while competing for a Las Vegas wedding extravaganza. The host of The Forever Game, Trey Gold, appears interested only in keeping the spotlight on himself while the contestants run wild, sampling all Vegas has to offer and threatening to blow the whole show out of the water. Not only must Lucky keep the couples from killing each other, killing their relationships, or ending up on the front page of the Review-Journal, she has to navigate her own rocky road of love. Teddie, her live-in lover, seems ready to chase a new career as a singer, leaving Vegas . . . and Lucky . . . behind. And the Babylon’s new French chef seems determined to muddy the murky waters of love even further.

Then there’s Lucky’s mother, Mona, who never could leave well enough alone . . .

My Review

This new novella by Deborah Coonts was just released on January 17th.  This novella, Lucky in Love, fits in between books two and three.  Book three, So Damn Lucky, is being released at the end of February. The series focuses on Lucky O'Toole who is the head of Customer Relations for The Babylon, the most amazing  hotel in a city full of amazing hotels, Las Vegas.

Coonts, who resides in Las Vegas, knows Vegas! She provides the reader with a realistic and behind the scenes look at Vegas.  This novella revolves around a reality series being shot at the hotel. Just a tease of the fascinating world of Lucky and Las Vegas to hold us over for another month.

I love the take no prisoners style of writing that Deb Coonts brings to this series.  If you haven't read the earlier to books, Wanna Get Lucky and Lucky Stiff yet, this will give you a preview of this wonderful series for a great price.  It is available as a Kindle book on Amazon for $3.44.  It is more than time that you discovered this exciting and provocative new writer.

As with the earlier books, Lucky in Love, is filled with fascinating characters from her boyfriend to her parents to her coworkers as well as the newcomers in this novella.  And it all revolves around love...what is love...can real love happen in Vegas...does Lucky have love in her life?  Vegas is brought to life and by the end of the book you'll be wondering why you haven't booked your next trip there yet!  I cannot wait to read the next Lucky adventure, So Damn Lucky!
