Getting Lucky by Stacy Finz

[space size=50]

  Lucky



  • Quintessential clueless male

  • Steps up with gusto

  • Puts Katie first *Swoon* (even when still being a quintessential clueless male)

  • A prize winning bullrider (the glutes on that man!)

  • Reluctantly attracted to Tawny... at first


Tawny



  • One tough, independent chick

  • A loving and protective mother

  • Awkward, shy and plain as a child, gorgeous as a woman.

  • Really awesoe custom leather bootmaker

  • In love with Lucky since childhood, but resistant to let him know. [br]


My Thoughts


When Lucky got his head out of his ass and finally clued in that Raylene was a Bitch, he let his attraction to Tawny take over. It took a long while to get to that point, though. I think the buildup was just what was needed for this dramatic story. Then the romance really kicked off and it was fun and sweet to watch.

There was a bit of secondary romance happening and that was enjoyable to behold. I enjoyed seeing all the old characters from previous novels and learning what they were up to. Looking forward to he next one. The ending gives a hint as to what's next for the town of Nugget. Looks like a little danger is coming to town.

There is a serious illness in this novel and it affected me greatly. Their daughter Katie has AML, Acute myeloid leukemia. It's a rare form of childhood cancer. I personally know an eight-year-old little girl, Lillian, who is fighting her second round of AML.

Synopsis


From his humble beginnings in Nugget, Lucky Rodriguez has become a champion on the rodeo circuit, truly living up to his name in every regard. But when he returns home, he gets something success can't buy: a daughter he never knew he had. And the girl's mother, an old friend he has hasn't thought about since, now touches his heart like no buckle bunny ever could.

Tawny Wade hasn't always had luck on her side. She fell for a boy she couldn't have, lost her parents too young, and now her daughter needs a transplant she can't provide. But if Lucky is a stem cell match, all that could change. The trouble is, Lucky's got a past in Nugget that makes him off-limits as anything more than a donor for her daughter. And yet, Tawny's never stopped loving the man who now holds her family's fate in his cowboy-callused hands...
