Breck has sworn off women after his last relationship failed, but he is attracted to the fiery redhead who doesn't take any of his crap. Their attraction is immediate and although Rowan does hesitate and tries to talk herself out of it, they end up having a one-night stand - a memorable one-night stand!
A month later Breck decides to take some time off to relax and unwind with his cat, Ace, and ends up in Shamrock Falls staying in none other than Rowan's newly established Bed & Breakfast. Since the business is just starting out, Rowan cannot risk sending Breck's business away, especially after getting some unexpected news regarding their one night of passion.
I loved, loved this story! As I mentioned in my review of the previous book, I couldn't wait to read Rowan's story. I am happy to say that it was everything I was expecting and then some.
Kelly Vitollo did an amazing job of bringing to the page a sweet, angsty, romantic story of second chances and new beginnings. I liked how she brought Breck and Rowan together, making them start out as friends after their one encounter and showing how deep their connection ran. The chemistry between Breck and Rowan was clear to see, especially after that explosive first night in Vegas. However, it was their connection and how it developed further that made this romance story a joy to read.
I appreciated the fact that Breck was torn between his past and what he felt for Rowan and that when he finally realized what he was feeling for her he didn't hesitate to step up and give it a try. I also enjoyed how Rowan opened up to Breck and showed another side of herself other than her caring and helpful side. She was thoughtful, friendly and immensely attracted to Breck. I liked how her mind worked and her sense of humor, but it was her longing for a family of her own, her range in emotions and her actions that endeared her to me.
The secondary characters in the story were enjoyable too. I especially loved seeing Sidney and Kade together and watching as Jace and Betsy became closer since the previous book. I am looking forward to Jace's story after some of the things I read in this installment. He does need to find his happily ever after.
Luck of the Draw is the second book in the Shamrock Fall series and although it can be read as a stand alone I would encourage you to read the previous book, Lucky Break. There you'll get to meet Rowan for the first time and really get to see another side of her. I think that having met Rowan in the previous book helped my enjoyment of this story.
I received this title from Entangled Publishing through NetGalley in exchange of my honest opinion.
