Nine months ago, Kasey Crandall would have defined "lucky" as "my life." Married to a wealthy, generous older man, pregnant with a once-in-a-lifetime baby, she was oozing with joy. Now, however, she was more apt to think, "just my luck."

Yes, motherhood was as glorious as she expected and she totally adored her daughter. Yet an inner voice was telling her something was wrong with her baby. But nobody wanted to hear that her life was not as perfect as it seemed.

Kasey knew she needed to be strong for her child and get her the right help…even if it meant going against her husband's wishes. Even if it meant turning to another man. Because sometimes a woman just has to make her own luck.

I got Lucky shortly after it came out. I found it to be an amazing book one of the best books that i have read in a while. I think that everyone can somehow relate to this book. If you like to read books about life and truely loving someone this is a book for you.

A year ago Kasey thought she had landed in Camelot. From her modest middle class past, she has moved up to exclusively wealthy Grosse Pointe, and she fears a fall from grace. Somehow she has failed to follow the fairy-tale script which would bring a happily-ever-after ending. Instead, she has become the wicked character of the story. But somewhere along the way Kasey has learned to discern between life-transforming love and the kind of love that could destroy her. All it took was the birth of her daughter for the hidden subtleties to become glaringly obvious. Her husband Graham stated at the beginning that he wanted no more children. His daughter from his first marriage is twenty, and he wants to create a life now focused on himself and his wife. Kasey unintentionally becomes pregnant, and revels in the new possibilities it brings her life. But once their daughter is born, Graham desires his normal life with his wife to return, albeit on his terms. And if Graham was unprepared for a child then he is even more unprepared to accept a physically, and possibly mentally challenged child. Nor is he willing to let go of Kasey, and he will use the child to insure the continuance of their marriage. Kasey heard about Jake¿s wild past long before she meets him. Rather than judging him by his past, however, she is prepared to accept him as he is. While he once was a lawyer and lived in Grosse Pointe, Jake is now a recovering alcoholic working for a newspaper. Most of his extra time is spent trying to heal his very damaged relationship with his teenage son. And certainly a married woman presents a temptation he cannot afford. But when his research leads to the conclusion that Kasey¿s daughter Tess may have incurred birth trauma similar to other cases, he cannot resist reaching out to Kasey and helping. Soon their growing friendship reveals just how deeply the attraction goes. LUCKY is an insightful relationship drama that kicks Harlequins Next series off with a bang. Strong romance, sharp family drama and intensely emotional situations combine for an intense read impossible to put down. The sexual tension between Kasey and Jake is powerful, though they wait until very late in the book to culminate their relationship. Indeed, author Jennifer Greene skillfully works up to a powerful climax, and leaves the reader marvelously breathless. I love Jake¿s difficult relationship with his son and his bad boy past complete with being a recovering alcoholic. I do at times wish for more insight into his emotional state of being where Kasey is concerned. Nevertheless, he certainly demonstrates his interest and concern, even while attempting to maintain adequate distance to lend respect for the fact that she is married. Moreover, his innate goodness gives Kasey exactly what she needs. Kasey likewise demonstrates a complex and challenged emotional landscape as she fights for her child, her marriage and her future. Perhaps it is Graham, however, who fascinates me the most. He told Kasey straight up when they got married that he was not interested in raising more children. He seems genuinely loving and concerned for her, though limited by his own character weaknesses, which become accentuate with unusual circumstances. He is not by nature an evil man, though he is selfish and overly concerned with appearances. And it seems his bad behavior is exacerbated by his loss of control over his family. And while I don¿t condone his bad behavior, I can certainly understand it. And it is these weaknesses which give this new product line its appeal. These are mature characters confronted with life altering challenges that we can all relate to. Mature readers will welcome the Next series if all its offerings are this richly complex and powerfully written. LUCKY earns the WordWeaving Award for Excellence.

Alright. So you aked me to continue it, so im going to do just that. Once again, comment at cody result one.<p>Johns breath became short as the other girl began to kiss his di<_>ck softly and gently. He looked up at Kenzie, who was on his chest, pus<_>sy dripping onto his neck. "You betrayed me...why didnt you tell me you were les<_>bian?" he said, hurt in his voice. Kenzie laughed, causing a little of her leftover cu<_>m to squirt onto his chest. His di<_>ck, if possible, got harder and the other girl slowly ran her lips up and down the bottom of his 10 inch shaft, one hand on his di<_>ck and the other stroking her cu<_>nt and plunging in wrist deep. Kenzie smiled apologetically. "I didnt betray you baby. I still love you." She pulled his head forward towards her pus<_>sy. John, barely resisting to probe her pus<_>sy with his tongue, looks at her confused. "Then why--" Kenzie stops him with a shrug of her shoulders. "Shes my friend and we both wanted to try out the new strap on." She leans into his mouth. "Im not lez baby i just like se<_>x." John, unwilling to resist, pulls her cu<_>nt towards his mouth and his tongue runs up and down her slit like a paint brush, lapping up her delicious cu<_>nt. The other girl takes her cue and slowly puts her mouth around his di<_>ck. Then she shoves his hard co<_>ck down her throat, deep- thro<_>ating him between moans. The vibration of her vocal cords on his di<_>ck sends John into a frenzy. Reaching one arm around Kenzies leg, he sticks a finger into her pus<_>sy and shoves it in back and forth in the rhythm of his tongue. Kenzie moans and reaches a hand around herself to finger herself in the a<_>ss. For a moment it seems like time stands still, just three of them, one guy, two girls. John moans as the other girl picks up her pace, shoving her head down onto the monster of a di<_>ck, and reaches over to the 18 inch strap on di<_>ck, puts it between her legs, and pushes it in so hard that it fills her completely and it wraps around inside of her so the tip is out of her pus<_>sy . Kenzie shoves her hand harder into her as<_>s and, with a huge groan, she bucks her hips and cu<_>ms all over Johns face. John moans as the other girl takes his di<_>ck so far that his bal<_>ls dangle at her chin. She screams as she cu<_>ms and her cu<_>m drips down the di<_>ck so it almost looks like the di<_>ck cu<_>med. John takes one look at that ero<_>tic scene and he cu<_>ms into her throat, his monster bal<_>ls emptying into her.<p>Alright i had a change of mind. If you want to comment on this one, go to cody result 2. Maybe ill make another part. If i have time. We'll see.
