Overview

Lucky in Love is the book that started it all. It's the first in a series of compelling contemporary romances about the Cochran family from Detroit and the Deveraux family from Atlanta. Benita Cochran of Cochran Communications and Clayton Deveraux of The Deveraux Group met for business only, but it was clear that they were destined for more. Clay tried to resist the powerful attraction he felt to Benita, but in a very short time, they went from the boardroom to the bedroom and right to the altar. They were so well-matched in so many ways that even her domineering father's opposition to their union couldn't stand in their way. After their romantic wedding and passionate honeymoon Benita eagerly embraces her new life in Atlanta. She loves everything about being Mrs. Clay Deveraux, especially the baby she was carrying. Everything is golden until a tragedy rips them apart. Only the love they have for each other enables them to fight through their grief and pain to recapture the passion and joy that brought them together. Lucky in Love is an award-winning national best-seller that began the series of passionate, intelligent and warmhearted romances that have won fans worldwide.

Lucky in Love is a character driven story that gets you into the life of Benita 'Bennie' Cochran very swiftly. Benita is an accomplished businesswoman who excells at so many things you wonder where she gets the time for everything she does. But soon you find out what propels her. It's what induces all of us women to work so hard, the love of our families. Her mother died when she was ten, and she took it upon herself from that moment on to take care of her family. That credo has made her what she is today. However, what happens when you become so selfless you lose yourself? You burnout. Bennie needs to let go and live for herself for a change. Enter Clayton Deveraux. Bennie has been widowed for five years and this is the first man who has stirred these kinds of feeling in her. Both she and Clay are instantly attracted to each other. Ah, but it isn't that easy. Benita's father,Big Benny Cochran, wanting to keep her under his thumb and running the family business, tries everything in his power to keep them apart. True love can't be thwarted, though! Author Melanie Schuster has a sharp eye for details. She made me laugh, cry and talk back to the book. She had me laughing aloud in the middle of the night, waking my slumbering hubby. I loved this book and I can't wait for her next one. I cannot recommend this book more highly! Five stars, plus!

Betty/Bonnie, (whatever her name is) her character is not believable. Nobody's this perfect! She got on my damn nerves!!!! "Oh, yes Im an expert chef, and did I forget to mention an expert at speaking 10 different languages, 5 martial arts, a published author, own 12 businesses, a licensed hair stylist, a professional singer, a motivational speaker, a life- coach and the perfect mother to my 20 brothers! (BLAH BLAH BLAH). Hell, when she got in the accident I kept thinking she'd jump on the table and perform surgery on her damn self! Might as well. Im sure she has an M.D., and a JDD as well. The father was the only believable character!

In the early stages of reading this novel, one's sole intention was to get caught up in an illusion in other to drift from reality. However as it progressed the writer Melanie Schuster plotted skillfully in creating a realistic, attainable and heartfelt piece of art! With times changing heavily by technology and equal rights Schuster helps one to understand that compatibility still exist. Life has ups and downs. Happiness and sadness but because of this novel i believe that fate, divine intervention, good karma and love still exist.
