Lucas “Lucky” Dorsey was at the top of his game in the world of MMA, and his nickname…well, let’s just say the ladies couldn’t get enough of the tattooed bad boy. But then…he met her…
As the first female firefighter in the Hope Falls Fire Department, Deanna Bishop was focused on making a fresh start in her new town. She was ready to put out fires with the rest of the boys, but the beauty with emerald eyes was never ready for the fire he’d started in her heart…
She brought him back to life, and he wanted more. He filled her with passion, and she wanted to run. Will Deanna be able to open her heart and let someone fight for her? Will Lucky be able to prove that a Lucky Kiss could lead to more than just that…
Melanie Shawn is one of the handful of authors, whom I have read all the books they have published. I love her writing style, it is full of wit, humor, charismatic characters, forever type friends, friendly small towns, and completely swoon worthy romance, that will melt your heart and mind. I have never been disappointed with the stories they have created, and that is rare!
Lucky Kiss, is all the above, and then some.
I love how in love Lucky is with Deanna. And to find out, that he had a crush on her a long time ago, just made it even better. This ladies man MMA fighter has to work to get Deanna's affection. All her attention he has, no doubt, but she has sworn off from athletes, and determined to keep that promise.
Their first meeting brought a smile on my face and pretty much the story kept it there throughout. Lucky is willing to do anything to get Deanna. And every step of the way, she is trying to keep him on arm's length, with little success. The romance between them is steamy and passionate. Lucky's charm is unbelievable, the honesty between them is refreshing, and I loved that the conflicts were solved so quickly, without major drama.
This story, and author, is one that all contemporary romance readers should know, read, and not to miss! The story is entertaining and I get a huge kick out of the pop culture references. Lucky and Deanna together are perfect for each other. They are not perfect people, but they fit with each other, and that's what matters. Hope Falls gives them a warm welcome, like always. I admit, I cherish reading this book, going over the pages again and again, just to spend little extra time at Hope Falls... My favorite small town America
