Since birth, Lexie Berry has had nothing but bad luck. Orphaned at an early age, she had a rough childhood and a boyfriend who was murdered. Now the beautiful, stylish Lexie is determined to change her luck and her life. But first she's got to make good on a promise: To pick up Ty Walker from prison. One look at the gorgeous ex-convict and Lexie knows she's in trouble-and already thinking about taking a walk on the wild side.

For five years, Ty was imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit. Now he wants revenge on the people who framed him. Yet when the high-stakes poker player sees the leggy Lexie, he suddenly has other desires on his mind. Realizing that Ty is innocent, Lexie tries to stop his plan for vengeance and help him become a better man. But as Ty battles his inner demons, dirty cops and criminals plot to take him out, can he and Lexie find a way to escape the past?

    "A FANTASTIC AUDIOBOOK EXPERIENCE!"

    I felt a whole gamut of emotions with this wonderful book and world that Kristen Ashley has created. I love that in this Colorado Mountain series, K.A. has lingered in the town of Carnal. In the previous book, "Sweet Dreams" with Lauren and Tate's story, we see that Carnal was establishing the beginnings of community and belonging among the people who were slightly oppressed by the corrupt police department. But, no one had experienced that suppression more than Ty Walker, a half Black man who was targeted and set up for a crime he didn't commit all due to his skin color & a hidden, malicious agenda. Lexie Berry enters his life unexpectedly and ends up being his greatest tonic for dealing with the loss of freedom, power and his blood thirst for vengeance.

    Now, with any of K.A. books, this one provides fantastic hero/heroine chemistry with a sexy, badass Alpha-male and a fun, beautiful, classy, and just a little goofy heroine. After reading one of K.A.'s books, I always come away feeling like she has solved the gender war, as she celebrates complete masculinity in the male leads, and a lovely, strong femininity in the heroine. And, in that respect, I loved both Ty and Lexie...I mean the pair smoldered together! Their sex appeal and connection was powerful and simply perfect.

    This book also made me feel completely sad with a awful sinking feeling in my stomach, at times, because of the theme of prejudice in relation to people of color. There are also some very rocky parts of the H/h relationship that seriously conjured up my tears. Yet, the moments of elation and triumph for Ty and his beautiful sunshine, Lexie, were amazing!

    This book progressed and built itself up in stages both in their relationship with one another and their involvement with their friends from town. OMG, there are so many powerful moments in this book. I will always remember Ella's (Lexie's mother figure) talk with Ty about coping with generational racism and how to deal.....OMG...POWERFUL!!!!

    The villains are pure evil and they get their just reward in the end. But, a murder is left unsolved and that pushes readers forward into the next book WHICH I'M DYING FOR THE AUDIOBOOK TO BE RELEASED!!! Lastly, the epilogue was emotional, and superb. Not everyone gets their HEA, but those who really work hard at it definitely reach their HEA, including Ty and Lexie.

    Narrator: Emma Taylor is a gifted and talented narrator. SHe was excellent in every accent and male/female role she took on. The only small complaint I have is about Officer Pena...I thought she laid on the Mexican accent way too thick. Otherwise, Emma T. is pretty close to perfect, as a narrator, in my book.

    OK, the only negative and this is a big one for me is that I HATE it when the F-word is inserted in the middle of Jesus Christ. I think it's awful, disrespectful and unnecessary. I've never heard anyone talk this way in real life and I wish K.A. could use another string of curse words for her male leads to use that is not so offensive to a wide part of the population. I know it's completely jarring and offensive to me.

    But on a positive note.....CAN'T WAIT FOR CHACE AND FAYE'S STORY IN BREATHE!!!!

    "22+ hours are not enough!"

    It's always bittersweet when I finish listening to KA's Carnal series, it's like anything I listen next will be a let down. I particularly liked the diversity in characters in this one and hope to see more of it in future stories. There maybe be a formula to the way KA writes but I find all the stories unique and engaging. Now let's have a WOC in a lead!

    "So Glad This Series is on Audible!!!"

    I think this series keeps getting better and better. I love all of Kristen Ashley's other audiobooks, but I think this is my favorite series so far. Great character development and writing, good back stories, heartwarming romance with some thrills. It has a bit of everything. This is book 3 in this series, and although you don't need to begin with book one, I'd start with The Gamble and then listen to Sweet Dreams since some characters and places from those books referenced. Over all a great listen.

    "One of my most favorite"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Lady Luck to be better than the print version?

    I like the audio book because I listen to it while I do house work, lawn work, and grocery shopping. I can listen to an awesome story while doing boring stuff.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ty and Lexi were my favorite characters.


    What does Emma Taylor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Engaging and brings the story to life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    All this authors books make me want to finish it in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Oh my goodness. This was an awesome book. So much drama, and action.

    "BEST SO FAR - KEEP 'EM COMIN'"

    I thought this was the best of the Colorado Mountain series. I absolutely fell in love with both Ty and Lexi, both strong characters. The story had most of everything I enjoy in a good listen; drama, suspense, bad guys, really bad guys, really good guy, good and loyal friends, and somewhat explicit sex. I think KA could have done better in the sex department, describing it in more intimate, glasses steaming detail, but it was all right. I liked that most of the good guys from previous books in this series were still an important part of this one and I also liked that new characters were introduced. But, above all, the strong H/H did it for me, especially Lexi. I don't like to listen to a story where the heroine is "mamby-pamby", indecisive, co-dependent and not her own person. Lexi was none of these; she was strong, "through sass" and determined, yet nurturing.

    Can't wait until the next in the series - Breathe; just hope it's as captivating as this one.

    "Great Addition Worth Every Minute Listening Time"
    What did you love best about Lady Luck?

    The give and take between Lexi and Ty was everything. It was fun, sexy, annoying, loving, frustrating-between the characters & this reader.

    It was also fun to see main characters from previous books dropping in.


    What other book might you compare Lady Luck to and why?

    The series as a whole is great so far. I'm not sure if there are more than 4 books in the series..I hope there are more.

    The focus on the town and its people is similar to Lauren Dane Brown family series. The subject matter similar to Maya Banks but not as intense or graphic (maybe because the length of the books.)


    Have you listened to any of Emma Taylor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've only heard her in this series. She is above average and I enjoy her performances.


    Any additional comments?

    NOTES: Adult themes/situations, strong language and a bit of violence
