Overview

Welcome to Fortune, Colorado—where the air is clean, the men are rugged, and the all the good ones… are bachelors.

Born into the infamous Charlemagne equestrian empire, Shannon has been raised to do whatever it takes for the family business. Even if it means going undercover and digging up dirt on a competitor. It's easy enough when she believes he's a bad guy whose success seems too good to be true. In fact, Shannon's excited to put the aggravatingly sexy Irishman in his place and get back in her father's good graces. All she needs is to stay focused on the goal … and out of Sean Muldoon's arms.

From stealing a thoroughbred racehorse from the Irish mob to striking gold in the mountains of Colorado, there's little Sean hasn't experienced. But when it comes to resisting his hot new stable manager, he's out of luck. With the mob hot on his heels, keeping Shannon off their radar is all but impossible, and he's not about to put her in danger too. Sean wants Shannon, but how can he offer her a future … when he can't even guarantee tomorrow?

3.5 Stars Shannon Charlemagne's family is famous in equestrian circles, going back several generations and Shannon has been brought up to always put the business first, even if it requires her to go undercover to infiltrate a competitor's business and dig up dirt to be used to discredit the competitor. Shannon is the obedient and amenable of the Charlemagne daughters, the people-pleaser and the pressure of her living up to her father's demands has her constantly anxious and battling panic attacks, obviously not a good choice to practice the deception needed. To make the situation worse, one look at Sean Muldoon and she finds herself fighting a major attraction to him. Sean Muldoon has had a colorful past. Growing up in the back alleys of Dublin, Sean fought his way out of poverty and boxing was his ticket. At least until he found himself on the hook with the Irish mob and fled to America with only the clothes on his back and a thoroughbred racehorse. The Good: Getting Lucky was an enjoyable read and the high point for me was that Shannon discovered herself and became more assertive when she got away from her father's influence. Her sister, Colleen was the star of the story in my opinion and I look forward to reading her story. Sean was a cutie, easy-going and very protective of those he cared for. He was willing to walk away from Shannon for her own safety. The characters were fun and likable and I enjoyed the friendships that grew between the girls and the guys along with the ribbing that went along with it; as well as the fact that, even though his friends knew Sean was hiding something, they were supportive of him and gave him the room to confide in them at his own time. The Not-So-Good: Getting Lucky has the plot line for a great book. With a story that combines romance and a mystery, a sexy Irishman living under a false name and danger from the mob, I had very high expectations for a fast-paced story with lots of action and drama. Sadly it fell a little short for me. I may be in the minority when I say that the story felt very rushed and the pace was choppy. The story did not flow smoothly from scene to scene but felt like the author was in a hurry to get to the conclusion. Also, the ending of the story was too easy and a bit unrealistic. That said, Ms. Seasons introduced some characters that I am interested in following up on. Jake and Apple's story shows promise that I hope it will deliver on. I also hope that Colleen will get a story of her own. *I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Great start to a new series set in a small town of Colorado! Besides Sean and Shannon's story, we are also introduced to the other characters in the series whose stories are coming up next. The story is a light read, even the suspense portion of it is pretty light. There is plenty of sexiness with it being dirty and you will definitely drool over Sean. The book is not that long, and their relationship develops very fast, but overall is an enjoyable read. I really liked Apple and I can't wait to see what she has in store for Jack! ARC via Edelweiss

The first of a new series, Getting Lucky by Jennifer Seasons is a contemporary romance with a decided small town feel.  Just the sort of story laden with characters and potential stories to come that will reel readers in and keep them waiting for more.  Particularly if the writing and characters continue to defy conventionally expected  norms that I want in my romances.  Starting off with a plot that requires some deception, I was wondering if Seasons would be able to pull a romance off with two characters who are actively deceiving one another.  I understood the reasons for it, and could even empathize with Shannon’s position, as the people-pleaser of her family, she will do what it takes for approval.  But that doesn’t excuse her purpose, even if her intentions were not necessarily her own.   But let me back up: Shanon is a Charlemagne, daughter of a very successful Thoroughbred racing stable in  Colorado. Racing is not always a pretty game – it’s far darker and more cutthroat on the backside (the stables)  than going to the races would indicate.  But Shannon has the skills, talent and experience to manage a racing  stable, and that is what her father demands she do: infiltrate the stables of Sean Muldoon to discover just what  he is doing to achieve such success, often to the detriment of her own family’s endeavors.  Sean Muldoon had a hard life growing up in Ireland, and has worked both on the legal and illegal side of racecourses for years. His experience has enabled him to settle in Fortune and build his own stable of winners.  It’s just difficult finding help. When a friend in town suggests that he run an advert and start interviewing, he  turns down several candidates until meeting Shannon.  These two are point / counterpoint: Sean is tall and dark, Black Irish with coal black hair, green eyes and an  accent that charms the moss of the Blarney Stone.  Shannon is fair and red-haired, a tad on the timid and shy side.  These two are really fun together: Shannon is slowly getting to be more comfortable in her own skin, and she  wants that skin near Sean.  Sean is as sexy as can be, and he likes Shannon, well, perhaps more than likes  her. But his past is a dangerous place with deadly people, and he knows that his success with racing just may bring that danger to his door.  From some angsty moments to high drama, softer times slipped in that allowed the two to get closer and soon  their secrets are revealed. Far from being a stumbling block, Shannon’s impetus for invading Sean’s stables  gave her a purpose, and showed her that she can survive while making her own decisions. Sean’s confidence  in Shannon’s regard for him and that just may be worth taking big chance.  Fun and light with just enough angst from past issues and the current threat of Sean’s past returning to  endanger his new life this story flew by.  Plenty of characters from the town are introduced and presented with  the start of their own HEA’s has me intrigued and ready for the next book.  I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not  compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
