The crew at Boston’s Brazen Head Pub hasn’t been very lucky in love. Can a mysterious visitor inspire them to look past old hurts and misconceptions and give romance a chance? One Lucky Night is a collection of five sexy interwoven novelettes by Aria Kane, Grace Teague, Ana Blaze, Constance Phillips, and Melinda Dozier.
Lucky Break by Aria Kane
Four years ago, chef Derek Chase walked out of Andrea Rivera’s life after a tragedy neither of them were prepared to deal with. When she’s called to the Brazen Head to repair a dishwasher, old sparks ignite buried feelings.
Lucky Star by Grace Teague
When her life is threatened by a mugger, Charlotte Price realizes she's in love with her best friend, Tommy Leung. The Brazen Head seems like the perfect neutral place to confess her feelings, but nothing goes according to plan.
A New Tune by Ana Blaze
When it comes to dating, Holly Hall has one unbreakable rule: no musicians. Not even gorgeous ones. Especially not gorgeous ones. Dating them only leads to heartbreak. So why did she let singer-songwriter Cian O’Neill kiss her? And why is she thinking about doing it again?
Lexi’s Chance by Constance Phillips
As a bartender, Sean Whelan meets all kinds of women every night, but none turn his head the way that Lexi has. She’s been playing cat and mouse with him for weeks. Tonight, Sean’s determined to get Lexi to quit teasing and take a real chance on him.
Drink or Dare by Melinda Dozier
A bachelorette party Drink or Dare game pairs paramedic students, Rachel Robertson and Killian Whelan, in a flirting match. Soon, the dares threaten to turn their academic rivalry into something much more.
This book has five short stories that all interconnect. Each story is about one couple, but when you put them all together you get the whole story of what happened that night at the Brazen Head, which I thought was fun. Though the stories are short, they are satisfying romantic stories. There may not be time for a HEA, but they at least end with hope. One of my favorites was A New Tune. I think this quote sums up why I liked Cian so much.
The girl had always been a bit prickly, but since they’d kissed she was a f***ing cactus. She aggravated and charmed him at the same time, so he figured he’d have to marry her eventually. In the meantime, he was gonna try for an actual date. It didn’t look like tonight would be his night.There is more to like as well. You have the second chance story, friends that decide they want more, school rivals who don't get along until they meet at the pub. The flirty bartender who has to convince the woman he's interested in that he's sincere. This was a fun and sweet yet steamy read.
My Rating: ****
Steam Factor: !!!!
