Lucky Numbers by Kelly Gendron Blog Tour

Lucky Numbers Banner
One locked safe, a troublemaking tattoo, and two determined people… add up to unlocked secrets and a love that just won’t stop.

Luke “Lucky” O’Conner is a committed bachelor. His motto…“Nobody’s ever getting this Lucky.” So when Kaley Harlow walks into his tattoo shop and somehow leaves with the only record of the numbers to his new safe tattooed on her sexy little hip, Lucky’s motto is threatened. If he wants to see those numbers again, he has to get close. Closer than he’s ever gotten to any woman. And he has three weeks to do it.

Kaley Harlow, a happily washed-up former child star, is out to ruin her reputation. She’s through with people looking at her like she’s still that innocent little girl in pigtails. Not to mention, her agent has just signed her up for a movie contract. But, really, all Kaley wants is to start a new life and finally go to college.

When Lucky happens into Kaley’s life for the second time, the hot, tattooed badass is exactly what she needs to sabotage her image. But this badass has a secret, one that could ruin more than just Kaley’s reputation.

Lucky Numbers Teaser1

“Here,” he said, handing her a business card. “Text me your address, and—”

“Address?” Her heart kicked up a notch.

“Yeah, tomorrow’s my day off. I won’t be at the shop. I’ll come to your place, say, around one?”

“But—” she tried to argue.

“Now,” he interrupted, disregarding her feeble attempt at a protest, “I’m gonna shove off, but before I go…” He pulled her against him, secured his arms around her waist, and gazed down into her eyes. “Let’s do this.”

“What?” Her heart hit the gas, sped up, and was ready to leap out of her chest, skid right past him, and end up somewhere in the middle of the street.

“Like I keep sayin’, those big, beautiful eyes of yours are nothing but a couple of tattletales.” His husky tone stroked her everywhere as his arms tightened around her. “Kiss me, Kaley.” His head moved downward. “We both know you know you want to.” He bent closer, his tempting mouth nearly brushing hers. “And I’m not going anywhere ‘til I give you what you want.”

His last few words were enough to push her through the space between them, for her lips to fall onto his. He was right. She did want to kiss him, and when their lips finally locked, that kiss was nothing short of amazing. His mouth wasn’t just tempting to look at. He knew exactly what to do with it. Against his warm, strong lips, feeling his moist, thick tongue, Kaley had forgotten that they were standing on a street in downtown Burbank. No longer could she hear the cars whizzing past them or the people walking by. All that existed in the world was Lucky and the spell he casted over her with that kiss. Only when he pulled his head back, breaking their connection, did everything around her swirl back into motion.

As Kaley caught her breath, Lucky gazed down at her from behind a curtain of long, thick lashes, his hazel eyes sparkling with reckless naughtiness. The tip of his finger touched her tingling mouth. He slid it downward and gently pinched her chin. Lifting those heavy lids, he looked at her with that sexy little grin. “Until tomorrow, love.” He bent down, stole one last kiss from her wanting mouth before he turned, and, as he had called it, “shoved off” down the street.

Lucky Numbers Dream Cast

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Veronica – ☆☆☆☆
Lucky is a tatted up bad boy. I'll be honest and tell you tats do nothing for me. Until now. Lucky was delicious. He is strong, confident, intelligent and hot. The chemistry between Lucky and Kaley was well done and you could feel it right from the get go.

I liked the premise of the story. This is a fun, sexy read and at times unexpectedly emotional - tears were shed.

Lucky Numbers is book 3 in Kelly Gendron's TroubleMaker series and while each story is about I different couple I'd recommend you read them in order because in Lucky Numbers you spend time with characters from the previous books and also because all three books are worth reading.

I'm looking forward to reading book 4 in this series, Finder Fees, which is due out this year.

Mary Jo – ☆☆☆☆
Kaley, tired of being America's good girl, finds herself in a tattoo shop with her drunken friend Marissa and a drunk off his a$$ tattoo artist. When Marissa maces him, in walks bada$$ owner, Lucky O'Conner.

Lucky knows trouble when he sees it, and Kaley has trouble written all over her. Giving her a tattoo is the first on the list of things he wants to do to her, but he figures he'll never see her again.

Until that is, his cousin Sloan throws away the combination to his safe, which he also happened to integrate into the tattoo he gave Kaley that night.

Giving in to temptation, Lucky tracks Kaley down only to be offered a proposition of his own. Take a walk on the wild side to see if they really do get Lucky.

Angie – ☆☆☆☆☆
This is the third book in the TroubleMaker series. Luke aka Lucky owns a tattoo shop, he isn’t your typical bad boy but he does have a motto of “nobody’s ever getting this Lucky.” An altercation with one of his tattoo artists and a customer has Lucky finishing up a tattoo on a former child star, Kaley. Kaley wants to get rid of her good girl image, a tattoo is the perfect start, what she doesn’t know is Lucky put the combination to his safe in her tattoo. Lucky needs back in that safe in three weeks so he can get the deed to his shops in order to open two new stores. Lucky has to find Kaley and find a way to see her tattoo again. A “chance” second meeting and Kaley decides that Luke is just what she needs to tarnish her image. For the next few weeks Luke helps her but starts to have feelings for her and he has a secret, one that will not only tarnish her image, it will put his secret front and center and he will lose his tattoo shops. As much as I liked the first book in this series, and even more so the second book, this is by far the best book in the series, seems like they get better and better after each one. I cannot wait to see what the next book is about!

Characters: The characters are so well written; you can’t help but fall in love with all of them and feel like you are right there in the moment with them.
Sex: So steamy
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

Johanna – ☆☆☆☆☆
I think this one was my favorite of all three so far, and Lucky played the part of alpha guy so well. This book was well written and it sucked me in real fast. I loved it! This author has some pretty unique ideas, and you won't find the same story done over here. Each book was unique from any romance books I have ever read, and this one was very humorous as well. This is getting five stars for entertainment. I found the storyline unique, and characters were very well developed. The author even managed to pull in some previous series book characters. I had a good time reading this one.

Ruthie – ☆☆☆☆☆
I can't decide whether I liked this third book in the series even more than the others because I am now invested in the characters, or because of the story itself. Either way, this is a really good read. It is fun, it is serious, and it is hot. The tinges of control and submission interwoven between friendship and more ... beautifully done.

I am now asking Ms Gendron to please hurry up with book 4, so that I have an excuse to read the first three again - thanks in advance!

Mary – ☆☆☆☆
I loved this one more than the first two. Lucky is the best tattooed bad boy. He is all tough and mean looking on the outside with plenty of tattoos but Kaley sees the good man he is on the inside. When Lucky hears a commotion in the front of the shop, he writes down the numbers to the new safe he has just had installed. And he meets Kaley laying in a recliner waiting to have her tattoo finished. But Lucky needs to remember the combination to the safe, and with nothing to write on and the only writing utensil he has is the tattoo gun, he inks the combination into her tattoo but no one can tell because the numbers look like birds. Lucky has the idea to meet up with her and seduce her so he can get the numbers, but he realizes that he can't do that. He is beginning to have feelings for her. And his motto "Nobody gets this Lucky" is slowly slipping away. So can he tell her the truth and get the combination? Will she understand what he has done? Can he get past his past and tell her his deepest darkest secret? This is the third in the series, Broken Fences and Favorite Places are just as great and I am looking forward to reading Finder Fees, book 4, hopefully it is coming out soon.
