Con artist Amber Lee needs a lot of money for her Alzheimer’s-stricken father’s care but has enough saved up to find another way. Amber's declaration that she's finished doesn't go down well with her partner in crime Marshall Banks. Police detective Mike Corwin is in Vegas for his partner's wedding when he rescues a beautiful woman being manhandled and invites her to join him and the wedding party for a fun night out. On an impulse, Mike marries Amber after they wander into a wedding chapel by accident. Mike wakes up the next day to a pounding headache to find his wife is missing and so is the $150,000 he'd won playing the slot machine. Mike thought he'd outsmarted the Corwin curse, any Corwin male who falls in love will be destined to lose his love and his fortune, but he'd felt something for Amber so the curse must have kicked in. Amber had been forced to steal the $150,000 from her sexy husband to ransom her father from Marshall and after working another con with Marshall and gets $75,000 for her trouble. Amber goes in search of Mike to pay him back half his winnings and to ask him for forgiveness but Mike only wants a divorce. Will Amber be able to convince Mike to forgive her? Lucky Streak is fun, exciting and steamy. Carly Phillips has paired an entertaining story with interesting characters for an enjoyable read. I highly recommend this book.

Wild, sexy, fun and engaging opposites attract romance. This Corwin is in Vegas for his partners wedding and on a hell of a lucky streak and married to what seems like the perfect woman. Mike Corwin is a tough as nails cop and believes he hit the ultimate jackpot in Vegas when he wakes up with a wad of cash and a sexy new wife. Then the other shoe drops and Seems the family jinx has finally hit him. Hard. Amber turns out to be a con-artist and she disappears with the money. Now Mike's hell-bent on divorce and Amber's on the run… Extremely entertaining summer lounge in the sun read. Looking forward to more luck from this interesting family.

When Mike wakes up the next morning, his new wife and money are gone. He doesn’t tell his friends but he is determined to find her, get his money back and divorce her even though their chemistry is off the charts!!! Amber is deep in trouble and she only did what she had to do despite knowing it was wrong. After getting out of trouble she is determined to find Mike again and explain why she did it. Once she finds him, the sparks continue to fly between them but will Mike forgive her and keep the marriage going or will the “curse” stop it from happening?? Lots more subplots to keep this “curse” going and setting you up for the last book in the series, Lucky Break! Ms. Phillips is a wonderful storyteller which she demonstrated in this story. I enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting it down. This is a great book with plenty of romance and suspense, as well. I recommend this book to other readers.

The second book in this series is Mike Corwin and Amber Brennan's story. Amber spent most of her life watching her father pull off con jobs, until she decided to move to California to start her own, legal life where she worked as a hotel concierge. When her father develops Alzheimer's rather quickly she needs to quit her job and go back to working that lifestyle with her dad's partner, Marshall, to earn some quick money for his care. After Amber earns what she needs, she tells Marshall she is done. Problem is Marshall isn't done with her. He needs her perfect memory to help him get more money that he owes someone else and starts to grab her in the middle of a casino. Mike is a cop in Boston, MA and is in Las Vegas, NV for his partner's bachelor party. While he is there he happens upon a female who is being grabbed a little rough by some guy and comes to her rescue. Mike and Amber end up hanging out together for the rest of the night and have a great time. So much that they end up married and winning $100,000. Mike thinks since he just met Amber, and he isn't in love with her, this marriage might just work and he won't invoke the Corwin curse. Problem is he wakes up in the morning and his bride and his money is gone. Mike heads back to Boston and a few days later Amber shows up and then the real fun begins. Mike is determined to ignore her while Amber is determine to get him to forgive her for what happened. When the entire story unfolds, Mike agrees to help Amber and then they will get divorced. Of course nothing happens as planned. I just adored these two. They were my favorite couple in this series. They were opposites in many ways but they just worked. I loved their happy ending and really enjoyed re-reading this story.

The Lucky Series is about the Corwin curse. All Corwin men who fall in love will be destined to lose his love and fortune … No Corwin has walked away unscathed. Lucky Streak is the 2nd book in the Series and brings us Detective Michael Corwin. Mike is Derek's cousin and he's in Los Vegas for his partners wedding. Amber Lee was a popular concierge in LA because of her photographic memory until her father became ill. She returns to Los Vegas to take care of him, and hooks up with her father's protégé Marshal to pay for her father's care in the facility for Alzheimer patients. Amber decides it's time to go straight, and tells Marshall that she's done helping him con people out of their money by counting cards. Mike see's Marshall manhandling Amber and steps in to diffuse the situation, and then invites Amber to join in the wedding party events. They go out, have an amazing day together and then get married. Mike has a $10 token for the slot machine from the wedding and drops it in and wins BIG! Mike and Amber have an amazing wedding night. Amber is gone when he gets up, and so is the money. Why did Amber leave with the money? Do Amber and Mike re-unite? Does what happened in Vegas in stay in Vegas? So many questions that will be answered as Amber and Mike's story takes you on a roller-coaster ride. I read this series when it was first released, and I enjoyed revisiting it. I volunteered to review an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

ARC for honest review with no compensation Lucky Charm is the 2nd book in the Lucky series and what a way to continue it with the “curse” over all the Corwin men…."Any Corwin male who falls in love will be destined to lose his love and his fortune”. This is about Mike Corwin, a Boston police officer who goes to Las Vegas with a group of his fellow officers for the wedding of his partner. While there he meets Amber Rose Brennen and they end up have lots of fun, sparks fly and decide to get married. When they head back to Mike’s hotel they decide to play a slot machine and voila he wins $150K and tells Amber that she now owns half. When Mike wakes up the next morning, his new wife and money are gone. He doesn’t tell his friends but he is determined to find her, get his money back and divorce her even though their chemistry is off the charts!!! Amber who is in trouble did what she had to do even though she knows it was wrong. Now that she used some of the money to get out of trouble she is determined to find Mike again and explain why she did it. Once she finds him, the sparks continue to fly between them but will Mike forgive her and keep the marriage going or will the “curse” stop it from happening?? Lots more subplots to keep this “curse” going and setting you up for the last book in the series, Lucky Break! !

This was a great addition to the Lucky series. While I didn't want to like Amber at first, the further we read in to the book the more we understand about her situation. Her and Mike are explosive in the sheets, and I was glad to see the obstacles they've overcome (the Corwin "curse", her con act with him, and her past coming back to visit). I loved catching up with Derek and Gabrielle, and can't wait for Jason's book!!! I would definitely recommend this read!

Take a gamble. Great read, this is the second book in the rerelease of the Corwin Curse series, and I haven't read this series yet and loving it so much. Carly Phillips shows how great of an author she always has been. Amber Lee and Mike Corwin are great together and there story is so interesting. Plus you get to see Edward and Clara story and more information on Edwards life. Then you also still get to keep up with Gabby and Derek and we get to meet Jason for the final book in this series.

This was my favorite of the three book series. Phillips draws a reader to not be able to wait to read all of the novels in the series.

Somewhat predictable, but a great way to take your mind on a short vacation!
