Sometimes there is more than one way to get lucky…
Allison Parker knows winning the New York state lottery is impossible for a retail employee and fashion designer wanna-be who doesn’t, uh, play the lottery. But after a particularly bad day at work and a random prediction from a quirky psychic, she does just that, and wins. Money. Lots of it.
Marco Lucky is exhausted over his band’s diva antics and is looking for an escape. Yet finding a quiet spot in New York City is damn near impossible and he’s already tired of the women hitting on him strictly because he’s famous. But then the crazy brunette with the winning lottery ticket tells him exactly what she thinks of him and it isn't flattering. He is determined to get to know her better... a whole lot better and prove he is worth her time.
Allison figures it’s only fitting that she be the first woman in the history of ever to hit the lottery and score a smoking hot rock star all in one night, only to wake up with her entire life destroyed a mere eighteen hours later when her lottery ticket is missing. Marco’s offer of help makes her feel like the biggest lame ass loser ever, and while she can't take his money, she can take a weekend in LA and some smoking hot sex. But that's all it can be with him rich and hitting the road and her hitting the unemployment line.
From two different cities, and two different worlds, can Marco and Allison put the issue of money to bed? Because being lucky in love just might be hitting the jackpot after all…
How to Get Lucky by Erin McCarthy
Allison Parker is down on her luck, working a dead end job she hates and is absolutely broke. Living in New York is not cheap and she has made some bad financial choices in the past. She buys a lottery ticket with the last of her money after a maybe, probably psychic friend tells her it's her lucky night and she needs to buy a ticket after encountering Marco Lucky, the hottest rockstar around, in a bar. He pays for her and hers friends drinks after she was completely rude to him and didn't let his rockstar status get to her. Marco has been sober and celibate for a year but goes to the bar so he won't feel so lonely. He starts to leave the bar since he's being mauled by a bunch of fans when he sees Allison and hears the rude stuff she says about him. He can't get her out of his head so he goes back to the bar the next night hoping to see her again and finds her celebrating with a bunch of her friends. Unable to stop himself, he gets himself invited into their get together to learn Allison has won the New York State lottery. Marco and Allison spend a night on the town as tourists to celebrate her winning and become friends in the process. After a terrible ending to the night, Marco invites her to go with him back to LA for a couple of days to get herself square again and just to relax. Neither of them know what they are doing or where this this is going but they can't seem to stay distant from each other. I liked how Marco and Allison were complete opposites of each other but still managed to somehow fit one another. I enjoyed Allison's humor and sarcasm and how it was exactly what Marco needed to feel like a regular person. I'm anxious to see if there are anymore stories in this series and even if there isn't, I can't wait for the next Erin McCarthy book!
Sexy and Funny
How To Get Lucky is the third book in the Sexy in NYC Series and can I say it's about time... The first being The Pregnancy Test and the second being You Don't Know Jack.. If you've read the first two then you'll know How To Get Lucky is about their friend Allison Parker, a girl who hates her job and boss, whose about to have her cellphone shut off and no place to live. When transgender psychic extraordinaire Beckwith Tripp tells her that she won't find love but sees her financially stable, she uses what little money she has to buy a lottery ticket.
Marco Lucky is a famous musician who seems lost in his own world. After running into Allison at a bar and hearing her not so nice words about him, she seems to be stuck in his head and refusing to leave.When he runs into Allison again the next night, he hears she has one the lottery, he goes over to congratulate her. Her friends being the awesome friends they are gives Marco her phone number and while he's sitting at the bar, Marco and Allison begin texting each other... When Allison saves Marco from the female fans, she does the only thing she could think of, to get the fans off his back.... She kisses him and it wasn't a simple peck on the cheek...
You can feel the sexual tension and chemistry between these two,but with Beckwith saying she wouldn't find love will Marco and Allison last? You'll just have to read How To Get Lucky to find out.This story had everything, chemistry, heat and a lot of humor and I hope Erin writes more for this series. It's one of my favorites.
How to Get Lucky
The third in the Sexy in NYC series features Allison, a pragmatic, sarcastic woman who meets Marco de Lucky, a successful rock star. All the books of this series begins with a psychic reading by Beckwith, a cross dressing ex-con. This time telling Allison her fortune, she will be lucky in money, but not in love. The story progresses in all the ways Allison can get lucky, or unlucky in some instances.
It’s a fun fast adult read. I liked Allison’s pragmatic nature in dealing with the lottery and Marco. It’s a “time to grow up” story. While it is the third of the series it is a standalone, you just have more appreciation of the other characters if you have read the other books. It was nice to see the other roommates and how they are doing. Looking forward to the next book.
