Lucky Kiss is a fantastic addition to the Hope Falls series. Lucky had me cracking up throughout the story. He was an awesome hero, who is trying to figure things out, but it doesn't affect his sense of humor at all. Deanna is an awesome heroine, who is trying to prove herself in a mostly male career. She has a bit of a guarded outlook, and prefers to blend in to the crowd rather than stand out. The story drew me in from the beginning, when what turns out as a misunderstanding brings these two together. I loved catching up with characters from previous books in the series, and can't wait to see what the girls have in store for us in the next Hope Falls book! I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great contemporary romance read.

Long awaited story about Lucky! Melanie Shawn does not disappoint! What do you get when you cross a woman fire fighter and a MMA fighter? An awesome love story, that's what! I was really looking forward to reading Lucky's story, and I definitely loved how it played out. Ms. Shawn's characters are always well-written and I always feel like they could be my friends. Another winner, Melanie Shawn! Keep writing in Hope Falls.

*Received an ARC in exchange from an honest review* Lucky Kiss is book 12 in the Hope Falls Series, though I think it can be a stand-alone. Lucas 'Lucky' Dorsey is on top of the MMA fighting world. Though he seems to be a 'little' off and can't grasp what is wrong. Along comes Deanna Bishop, a rookie in the Hope Falls Fire Department. She doesn't want a relationship. She is trying to fit into a 'man's world' and doesn't want anything to hamper that. The chemistry between the two of them is 'WOW'. How they first meet is absolutely hilarious. I love how all the characters in the book intertwine and we also get to catch up with characters from previous books in the Hope Falls Series. I love the humor, the chemistry in this book!

Melanie Shawn is one of the handful of authors, whom I have read all the books they have published. I love her writing style, it is full of wit, humor, charismatic characters, forever type friends, friendly small towns, and completely swoon worthy romance, that will melt your heart and mind. I have never been disappointed with the stories they have created, and that is rare! Lucky Kiss, is all the above, and then some. ​I love how in love Lucky is with Deanna. And to find out, that he had a crush on her a long time ago, just made it even better. This ladies man MMA fighter has to work to get Deanna's affection. All her attention he has, no doubt, but she has sworn off from athletes, and determined to keep that promise. Their first meeting brought a smile on my face and pretty much the story kept it there throughout. Lucky is willing to do anything to get Deanna. And every step of the way, she is trying to keep him on arm's length, with little success. The romance between them is steamy and passionate. Lucky's charm is unbelievable, the honesty between them is refreshing, and I loved that the conflicts were solved so quickly, without major drama. This story, and author, is one that all contemporary romance readers should know, read, and not to miss! The story is entertaining and I get a huge kick out of the pop culture references. Lucky and Deanna together are perfect for each other. They are not perfect people, but they fit with each other, and that's what matters. Hope Falls gives them a warm welcome, like always. I admit, I cherish reading this book, going over the pages again and again, just to spend little extra time at Hope Falls... My favorite small town America ~ Five Spoons

I loved Lucky and Deanna's story. I enjoy every return visit to Hope Falls. Lucky is the final Dorsey man to get his own book. He moves to town when he needs a change from his MMA career. Deanna is a probationary firefighter who moves to town on the advice of her cousin Eli. Lucky feels like it's love at first sight, but Deanna needs some encouragement. I enjoyed watching them fall in love on their way to their happily ever after. I also enjoy all of the visits with other couples from the other books. I also enjoyed the glimpse into the next book and cannot wait to read it. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

"Lucky Kiss" is written by Melanie Shawn, and it is the 12th book in the Hope Fall series. It can be read as a stand-alone book. It features Lucky Dorsey and Deanna Bishop. Words cannot describe how in love I am with this book! It was just so heartfelt, fun, and romantic to read! I couldn't put the book down! I was even reading it during my lunch break at work. From the first moment Lucky saw Deanna, it was pretty much love at first sight for him. Their first encounter was definitely meet-cute and had me smiling. No matter how hard Deanna tried to resist him, Lucky was determined. He knew there was something special about her, and he wanted her in his life. There were so many wonderful scenes between the two of them! I'm not going to spoil it, but there's one in particular where they played scrabble. The way Deanna described Lucky... just wow! Honestly, that was my favorite scene in the book, and I give props to Melanie and Shawna for being so descriptive with that scene. You could feel the range of emotions going through Lucky at that moment. Their relationship was genuine, and I definitely enjoyed seeing their relationship grow into something more. One thing I really enjoyed was how Lucky was able to break down the walls surrounding Deanna's heart. He got to her, and she slowly realized that maybe she could find love with Lucky and be happy. Hands down "Lucky Kiss" is my favorite book written by this sister duo of Melanie and Shawna! Lucky and Deanna just complimented each other perfectly. This is the type of book where I would have no problems re-reading it over and over again without ever getting tired of it. It's just that good!

This book is another in the Hope Falls series by Melanie Shawn. I always love “visiting” this town.. the people are genuine and the town is charming. Makes me want to live there! Lucas (aka Lucky) is in town to spend time with his dad and brothers and also to train for his next MMA fight. He is out on a training run when he encounters Deanna, a rookie firefighter who is chasing down the chief’s dog Lucky. A bit of confusion ensues and the story begins… Deanna is attracted to Lucky but she is trying to set her feelings aside. She keeps telling herself “if you play with fire you will get burned” which she knows well as a firefighter… but with Lucky she is fighting not an actual fire but the urges he ignites within her. Lucky is in a slump… he is not sure he wants to continue fighting.. the allure is just not there any longer. He hopes spending time around family in the scenic mountains will ignite his fire for getting back into the ring… little does he suspect that a certain beautiful firefighter will start a fire within him but not necessarily for getting back into fighting. I truly enjoyed this book and would recommend any and all of the Hope Falls series. I enjoyed my “visit” with the people in the town and hope there are more books to come!

Another sweet, yet sexy hot, love story by Melanie Shawn! Lucas "Lucky" Dorsey had decided to join the rest of his family in Hope Falls, CA. HIs twin brother Logan, older brother Levi, cousin Adam and his Dad, Charlie AKA Pops, the newly reconciled member of the family, all have made their home in this cozy little town. Lucky is coming off of an awesome win in his MMA fighting career, but his head hasn't been in the game since. Deanna Bishop is also new to town and is the first female firefighter Hope Falls Fire Department has ever had. She's got a history with fame in the family, so when she runs across the big bad MMA hero, she's quick to turn and run at the attraction she instantly feels for him. Lucky is blown away by what he feels for her, and it energizes him to get his gym up and running and start getting his head back into training again. Can he convince Deanna that he's an okay guy or will she continue to give him the cold shoulder?

REVIEW COPY RECEIVED FOR HONEST REVIEW Deanna Bishop is a rookie on the Hope Falls fire department. She's determined to be the very best fire fighter she can be. She's also a knock-out (her mom was a supermodel and her dad is a Hall of Fame baseball player). She spent summers in with her Bishop cousins (all male) and throughout her formative years only had one true female friend. The women of Hope Falls are reaching out to her and although she would love to cultivate some female friendships, she's not sure how; but the women are persistent. Lucas "Lucky" Dorsey, world champion MMA fighter recently moved to Hope Falls to be near his brothers, cousin, and his dad. The move is only temporary as Lucky is training for another fight, but his heart isn't really in it. Something is missing and Lucky can't fathom what it is. One morning while Lucky was out on a run, he kept hearing a woman calling for "Lucky". He kept answering her, yet she continued to call for him. Once Lucky's eyes hit on Deanna, he was smitten. However, Deanna was calling for "Lucky" the fire captain's dog, not Lucky the man. Obviously, the man wasn't aware of the situation and kept answering her. Once the dog was found and the situation was explained, Lucky asked Deanna out, but her response was negative because of her experiences with her dad and a previous "boyfriend", Deanna had vowed to NEVER date another athlete. But Lucky seems to have found what was missing from his life: a young, hot, female fire fighter named Deanna, and Lucky is not one to back away from a challenge. Although I am not a fan of MMA, the focus of the story didn't dwell on this, so I found the storyline very enjoyable. As always, the characters were wonderful and the passion was HOT! It's always are treat for me to read about "old friends" from previous books and this book from this series did not disappoint.

**I received an ARC of this book from the author for an honest review** It was so great to be back in Hope Falls! I love this little town and I'm excited every time we get the opportunity to go back! Deanna Bishop is the first female to be a member of the Hope Falls fire department. She has always felt like she was the person that people liked to use, so doing something that she was passionate about, and something both her parents did not understand, along being independent are two very important things to her. When Deanna is out taking the fire chief's dog for a walk, she literally runs into Lucas "Lucky" Dorsey and while she has no idea who the famous MMA fighter is, she does know that he is one of the hottest men she's ever seen and she's affected by him, even if she doesn't want to be. Lucky has moved cross country to not only be closer to his brothers and estranged father, but also to try to find the purpose in his life again. He has lost the passion he had for MMA fighting, which is what has for so long been the center of his life. He's hoping the change of scenery will help to jump start his passion. What he doesn't realize is that it isn't his passion for fighting that is going to be ignited, but his passion for a certain brown haired, green eyed firefighter. As Lucky begins to realize that Deanna might be the answer to everything he never knew he wanted, she is less than receptive to his overtures, however he sees through her smokescreen pretty quickly. He decides to go slow and win her over by getting to know her even though he wants her in his bed badly. Will Lucky succeed in getting to the heart of the woman he has fallen hard and fast for? And, will the hangups that Deanna has prevent her from having the best thing to have come into her life in as long as she can remember? I absolutely adore the writing of Melanie Shawn. I've been reading this series from the beginning and each one is always something to look forward to. While this is the 12th book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. I would recommend each and every book though!

You can never go wrong with reading anything by Melanie Shawn. I can't get enough of this series. I loved story line of Lucas and Deanna. I love that Deanna is strong woman trying to make her way in a male domainmated field of firefighters. What a great message that sends to the readers. Don't get me wrong I still like a man to take charge and be the hero every now and then. But this story line was refreshing. I loved that Lucas was the first to open up and not be the other way around. Nice switch up in role reversal. Dont get me wrong, Lucas is still the man in every sense of the word. It's just nice to see a man open up and be sensitive and caring as well. This book will not disappoint at all and can be read as a stand alone. I would highly recommend that you read the series to appreciate the small community of Hope Falls and the hot men that live there.
