Could you share a bed with a smoking-hot stranger?
I’m stuck in my hometown with a depressing job and no future.
So when my best friend asks me to drive all the way to NYC so I can be her maid of honor, I jump on the chance to escape.
Or I would have, if my car hadn’t broken down.
I’ve never been lucky. Then HE shows up—a guy straight out of a fitness magazine, wearing a sharp suit—and he actually fixes my engine.
I’d love it if he’d fix a few other things of mine, but I’m in a rush. I don’t think I’ll see him again.
Except here he is, staying at the same hotel as me.
Turns out they lost my reservation. My mystery man offers to save the day again; I can sleep in my car and probably get arrested for it, or I can share his bed.
He says nothing will happen between us… unless I want it to.
I should know better than to hook up with someone I met 24 hours ago. I might regret this in the morning, but for once in my life?
I just want to get lucky.
Too bad I don’t know who this man really is.
And when I find out…
My whole world is going to change.
Mr. Lucky begins focused on Calli, a young girl with whom I actually identified with a lot. She is devotedly independent, doesn’t feel great accepting help, and isn’t precisely certain where she’s going in life. She has dreams, sure, but how can she achieve them? Calli meets a stranger, who becomes an acquaintance, that helps her out. Fortunately, this … stranger is a supremely handsome.
The story here is a story of lust turned love. It is also is one of change and discovery. Many of the characters have gone through struggles, and by the end we begin to see them working toward a better future.
Although the makings of a great story were there, for me it didn’t quite meet those standards. I loved the idea behind this story, and I loved how it flowed through. But, for me, there was something missing. I think that there were parts of the story that could have been expanded upon, and perhaps a few details added to certain situations. There was a depth I look forward to in stories, that because of the novella length, just wasn’t quite there.
That being said, I think a lot of people will enjoy the story. There are a lot of steamy scenes, some intrigue behind the handsome acquaintance, and some interesting endeavors in their futures. This novella is more like a fantasy, something you think would never happen, so I think that idealistic quality will outweigh the lack of depth (for me) and allow people to slip into a sort of fairytale.
