Review: Lucky Streak by Carly Phillips

luck-streakFrom the back of the book:

Long ago, a witch proclaimed an eternal curse that every Corwin male who married for love would be destined to lose his woman and his fortune…

When Mike Corwin awakens after some wild partying in Vegas $100,000 richer and married to Amber, the gorgeous woman he met the night before, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot. The bad news is that Amber’s a con who takes his money and runs. Seems the family curse has finally hit him. Hard.

But to Amber, Mike isn’t business as usual. If only she didn’t need the money to ensure her father’s safety, she might actually have fallen for the intense lawman. Instead, she’s forced to betray him.

Now Mike’s hell-bent on divorce and Amber’s on the run…but when a twist of fate reunites them, can they turn their run of bad fortune into a lucky streak?

This was a very fun read. Lucky Streak is the second book in the “Lucky” series by Carly Phillips. Mike and Amber meet and are instantly attracted to each other. They have great chemistry right away and from the beginning I wanted them to be a couple. Although the relationship has some bumps I rooted for them to make it. Amber isn’t the typical female main character. She has previously been a con woman, and is working to get away from the life. Mike is a very straight-laced cop, who doesn’t want to bend the rules. I loved the writing and the snappy dialogue between all the characters. Mike’s entire loopy family is in this story. I can’t wait for the next book in this series!
