Lady Luck by Kristen Ashley (Colorado Mountain #3)

Goodreads Summary

Ty Walker was wrongly imprisoned and for the five years he was inside, he honed his plan so when he gets out, he has nothing but vengeance on his mind.

But then he walks straight to stylish, leggy, beautiful, goofy Lexie Berry and he suddenly has something else to think about. He knows within seconds he wants her and within days he can love her but with the filth that was flung at him clinging; he also knows he can’t have her.

Since birth, Lexie Berry has been Lady Luck’s favorite toy and because of that, Lexie is cautious. But within a day, she senses Ty is something special. With her luck, however, she can’t trust it. Then she finds out what was done to Ty and she’s willing to do anything to make it right.

Even what Ty will never forgive her for doing.

Ty clings to vengeance and Lexie goes all out to give him back the time he lost. But Ty is battling demons within and they’re up against dirty cops and criminals who will stop at nothing to sway Lady Luck against them. All Ty and Lexie have is hope Lady Luck will finally swing their way.

Review

This is my favorite book in the series.  By far.  I love Ty and Lexie.  But seriously, does someone get kidnapped in every Kristen Ashley book?  If not for that, I would have given this book 5 stars.

This book is about Ty Walker, who spent 5 years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit.  He arranges to have the woman who picks him up marry him for $50,000.  He doesn’t expect Lexie, the woman who gets him.  She’s a total goof, and had a tough upbringing.

As always, I stick by my criticism that KA’s books are WAY too long and have WAY too much unnecessary detail.  That being said….

This book was the best of the series so far.  The storyline was believable, and from the first page, you are rooting for Ty.  This book had some light moments, and some VERY heavy ones.  Lexie was a great character.  I loved how loyal Lexie was to Ty.  She stuck by him.

There was some drama between them, and a part in the book that SHOCKED me.  Really stunned me.  I won’t say what it was, since I don’t do spoilers, but I was pissed.  Then I wasn’t.  As I said above, it wouldn’t be a KA book without a kidnapping, and this book was no different.  However, this book did surprise me in that I thought I had it figured out when I really didn’t, not even close.  I like when a book surprises me.  I like that a lot.

Overall, great read and addition to the Colorado Mountain series.

My recommendation:

Read it.
