Publisher's Summary

I’ve always been the person that does whatever someone tells me I can’t.

Can’t graduate with a four-point-oh? Check. Can’t win a modeling contract without trying? Did it. Check. Can’t make it in the pro football league? Triple check with an MVP Award on top.

When my best friend told me to stay away from his little sister, Layla, it didn’t sound like a challenge. Then again, I’d never seen her before.

He obviously wasn’t thinking about who he was talking to if he believed I could ignore her. I obviously wasn’t thinking of him at all when I fell in love with her either. Fact of the matter is: I not only fell harder than a quarterback sack on a Sunday night game, but I did us one better. Kind of like that MVP award, only not so shiny. Sort of like my Player of the Year title, except the only thing I’m walking away with is an ex-best friend and a woman that hates my guts.

It’s okay. Just tell me I can’t win her back.

I’m Branch “Lucky” Best, and today’s my lucky day.

This is a standalone romance.

Ready to get Lucky!

This was the perfect sweet and sexy listen! Even though I have previously read Lucky Number Eleven, listening to the audiobook took it to a whole new level! I am a huge fan of Adriana Locke's books and this one had all the witty banter and heart that I love so much. The chemistry between Branch and Layla was scorching and I loved all of their back and forth innuendo and ribbing. Even though the start of their involvement is based on lust and sexual attraction, their actual romance is gradual and organic. There is a bump in the road and the inevitable push and pull, but it works because these characters actually grow to care about each other and you're invested in their relationship. The secondary characters, especially Poppy, were such a fun treat. She has no filter and will tell you how it is, but at the same time she is supportive and fiercely loyal. I really hope that we get her (and Finn's) story one day.

Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross were fantastic as always and flow together so perfectly. They complement each other so well and are one of my very favorite narrating duos. Wen couldn't have performed Branch any better! You really don't want to miss your chance to get lucky!

My Two Pennies

Kai and Wen have knocked it out of the park with their narration duo, I love the passion and intensity they put into every story. This is a great sports romance story that will have you cheering Branch on throughout the story. Layla has had a past that she doesn’t want to repeat again and is cautious when it comes to dating anyone else now. We’re given twists and turns that will keep you on your toes and swooning at times too. Absolutely LOVED the ending that we were given, happy tears all the way.

Super sweet, sexy and funny!

Omg!! I loved this super sweet, sexy, funny read!!
Layla has had it with dating football players!! She still in a funk after her recent break up with Quarterback Callum Worthington after he was busted cheating on her. She decides a road trip to her family lake house with her bestie Poppy is exactly what she needs!!
She doesn't expect for her brother, Finn, to be there with his super hot friend and teammate Branch Best. Finn let Branch now right away that his sister is strictly off limits!!
After endless flirting between Layla and Branch for the last couple of days, Finn and Poppy end up leaving for a trip to town. One thing leads to another and things end up getting hot and heavy between Layla and Branch. Layla knows not to get attached because Branch was upfront about how he never gets in relationships because of the schedule involved with playing football. She can definitely handle having a weekend fling. Plus, she's over dating football players!! Things get crazy when Finn finds out amongst other surprises!! I loved this fast paced read!! I could get enough!! Branch Best is definitely the best!!
I received an early copy and voluntarily left my honest review.

* update. I already read and loved this and when I was offered a free copy of the audiobook I couldn’t wait to listen to it! The narrators did an awesome job and I loved it a second time around! I’m voluntarily leaving my honest review.

Duet narration! Love this style so much!

I love a good football romance, and Adriana Locke really scored with this one! It's flirty, funny, and super sexy yet still sweet. I adored the witty banter and great characters. The chemistry was off the charts- I loved Layla and Branch together. Lucky Number Eleven was a quick, fun read and although this is a standalone, I'd love to see more of these characters. Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott were great narrators and I was so pumped to see that the narration was done duet style- it's pretty rare but I am so glad the style is catching on and hope we see more of it. It adds so much to the experience.

Here's a quick definition of the two different styles of multiple character narrations.

Duet narration = narrators alternating reading the male and female parts in a chapter.
Dual narration = narrators reading entire POV chapters.

5 Lucky Stars!

This forbidden romance was so sweet and charming and so much more than I expected! It captured my heart right from the start, making me laugh and swoon till the very end! Branch “Lucky” Best went to his best friend, Finn Miller's cabin, for a long weekend before training camp begins. Finn's sister, Layla James Miller, and her bff, Poppy Quinn, are there as well. This foursome are so perfect together. Their rapport is easy, and their banter is hilarious. Branch tries to stay away from Layla but their chemistry is off the charts. He likes how smart, sexy, and easygoing she is. He especially likes that she doesn't care about his status. Layla has been burned by athletes before, and isn't interested in going there again. But she can't deny the attraction she has to his stupid sense of humor, his kindness, and especially his dangerous and filthy side. They agree to have a passionate secret affair just for the weekend. But when it's over, and they go back to their lives in the real world, secrets can never be kept secrets for long. Branch and Layla are great together and I was cheering for them all along. I also love Poppy and Finn. They add so much depth, charm, and honesty to this story. Ms. Locke expertly creates characters that you really care for in heartfelt and sexy stories. Narrators Wen Ross, and Kai Kennicott were a perfect pair to bring them to life and make me love them even more. They also had an easy rapport and I can honestly say this is the first duet narration that I've enjoyed and now understand the appeal.
I really loved this romance and need more of all of these characters. I hope we will get a story about Finn and Poppy too! This is a funny, sweet, sexy and moving story that I didn't want to end!

Layla as she is so strong.

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

Yes but most of Kai kennicott and Wen Ross , or Adrianna locke books I do. I can’t seem to put them down.

Sweet, sexy and charming sports romance!

I absolutely loved the audio version of Lucky Number Eleven by Adriana Locke. Additionally, Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott absolutely nailed the narration and brought this story to life for me! I am a huge sports romance fan and Adriana Locke gave us a touchdown and a win with Lucky Number Eleven! This was such a sweet and charming story!

Layla recently had a breakup with a football player and is now determined to stay away from athletes all together. Then she meets Branch, her brother’s friend and teammate. He is charming and determined to have her. Branch “Lucky” Best plays hard both on and off the field. He is a man used to getting what he wants, when he wants. He is known for no-strings relationships, but something about Layla calls to him.

Branch and Layla have a strong connection and chemistry almost immediately, but Branch knows she is off-limits as Finn’s sister. Finn pretty much tells Branch hands off! However, Branch has never been one to follow the rules.

This was a bit of a forbidden love story with a lot of charm. It was a sexy and sweet. I loved the chemistry between Branch and Layla. I loved all the characters and the story!

Lucky Number Eleven was a great listen and I absolutely loved it! I would recommend both the book and the audio! I must say Wren and Kai really brought this story to life for me and made it a great listen! They make a great team.

Great Read

Lucky Number Eleven by Adriana Locke was a great read. Branch Best has always strived to complete anything people say he can’t. That doesn’t change anything when his best friend says he has to stay away from his little sister Layla. I loved reading Branch and Layla’s story, and can’t wait to read more by Adriana Locke.

4.5 Get Branched Stars!!

Just like I said when I read the eBook version of this book Ms.Locke's novels always feel like I'm going home again and it's the same with this audio book!! Such a fantastic feeling!! This story was even more of a great experience this time around and going back into this world again thrilled me. I absolutely loved Kai and Wen's narration!! They really made Layla and Branch come to life and shine in a new way for me. They are such an epic narrating duo!!

Branch still frustrated me but I couldn't help but fall for him all over again this time around. I adored Layla too!! If possible I went through even more emotions while listening to it.

Lucky Number Eleven was one of the most fun listens of 2017 for me!! This is definitely one I'll go back and re-listen to in the near future!! (:
