How to Get Lucky is a new standalone romance written by Lauren Blakely and Joe Arden. It’s a laugh out loud, sizzling boss’s sister romance that I absolutely adored! I love when authors collaborate and I was excited to see how my favorite author and one of my favorite narrators wrote a book together! Let me just say this: I loved it! When they meet, Teddy doesn’t know she’s his boss’s sister. They have an instant connection and they bond over dogs, sushi, and music. Teddy is trying to get his new DJ business off the ground while London is working on choreography to further her career. They vow to be just friends, but the flirting is too tempting. And so is the challenge London hits Teddy with. He’s just the man for the job. The perfect man. But as they get closer and closer to the line of friendship and much more, they know they are breaking the rules. Should they end it or just come clean? Oh man! These two were so perfect together! Teddy’s love for music and London’s love for dance and their love for their dogs! I loved the texts between London and her friends and Teddy’s friends from the club. I want to be a part of their friendships! I laughed so much, I swooned, had to fan myself and instantly fell in love with Teddy and London.
Five-star reviews are up there with blow jobs and tacos. Not always in that order, of course. I’ve had some pretty righteous tacos.
What do I think?
I think I might come as I am.
How to Get Lucky is a new standalone by the ever-talented, Lauren Blakely and narrator, Joe Arden! Fun, right? Joe has been narrating Lauren’s books for years and now they have written one together. And it’s so good!! I laughed so hard. Kara says I have a twelve year old hidden away inside me. 🤣
Teddy is a deejay for a male revue show but that is not his endgame. He wants get his side-hustle up and running so he can become a full-time DJ for events such as weddings, dances, corporate, and everything fun. The last year has been all about starting over, and going full-speed ahead. No distractions. No rule-breaking. Then, he sees her. A beautiful woman doing air-guitar at the bar with two dudes. They only exchange a few words but she never left his mind that night. He didn’t think he would ever see her again until fate steps in. Thank God for dogs since they are who brings them together the next day which turns into a date that night. It was everything. She was amazing. Then the bomb drops. She is also working for the club, and even worse…she was his boss’s little sister. Not only one strike but two! His luck has run out or has it?
London is a dance choreographer Who has been going through a drought. She hasn’t had luck in the love department and things were looking up when she met Teddy, a good guy. An adorable guy. A guy who makes her laugh and swoon at the same time. He is also the perfect guy for a new project. She has the moves but she needs the music to go with it and Teddy is just the talent and man she needs. They need to keep it professional. No mixing business with pleasure. But, when a challenge arises, they are both up for it. It for all good guys. It’s science. And one, they are both happy to be part of the experiment. Over and over again.
Omfg! This book is hilarious. I laughed out loud so many times. It’s also so sweet, adorable, and sexy. Teddy and London just hit it off from the start but it’s complicated. It’s also just so easy. Their banter is so fun. Their chemistry is sizzling. Their dogs are the best. Teddy is adorable, witty, hilarious, and has awesome taste in music, pooches, and finding a woman for him. London is smart, sensual, and funny and has amazing taste in dogs, dance moves, ice cream, the 90s and of course finding a man for her. I am so hoping to see them again someday.
Note to self: find my passport when I get home because I want to spend some time in London.
This woman is full of contradictions and complexities, and I want to explore them.
“Okay, you make me laugh and you turn me on at the same time. Is that your special skill?”
“Why, yes, it is.”
“But the trouble is . . .”
“Barking pumpkin dog.”
“Nailed it,” she says a little sadly.
A sexy standalone romance written by #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely and Award-Winning Romance Narrator Joe Arden!
Every man knows there are lines you don’t cross. Like this one — don’t bang your boss’s little sister.
Too bad I didn’t know sexy, clever, irresistible London is related to the guy who signs my paychecks. Would have been helpful to have that intel before I took her out on that first date, before I kissed her on the beach, before I made plans to take her home that night.
But now I know and I’m going to be so damn disciplined. I’m a good guy, after all. And good guys don’t break the golden rules of the bro code. I’m going to follow the f&*k out of all the rules. I won’t break a single damn one.
Even when London asks me to help her with a work project. One that has us working late every night, all alone, in my tiny apartment.
One that tests every ounce of willpower I have.
One that is driving me out of my ever loving mind.
But I resist.
Until the night she issues a challenge I can’t refuse.

The universe shifts, and our stars realign.
Technically, I fell for him, literally, the moment I landed in his quarterback-sized arms and looked into those soulful eyes. I blame the rum. Or was it tequila?
Spoiler alert: It was those delectable dimples.
Either way, Nick was stupidly handsome and ridiculously charming. He held me like he cared and listened to me like I mattered. Captivated by great conversation and rock-hard abs, Nick had me reconsidering the “No Men” promise I’d made myself.
I still regret walking away the next day.
I can’t stop thinking about the one who got away. But then I run right into Natalie St. James.She’s still unwittingly gorgeous, if not more so, and as wildly quirky as I remember.
Sidebar: She’s on a date.
What do I expect? For her to still be thinking about me?
I still regret what happens next.
We didn’t get the love story we deserved the first time, then I screwed up our second chance. When the universe shifts and our stars realign, is the third time a charm?
He shoves his hands in his pockets and rocks back on his heels. “About that date? The offer still stands if you’re up for it.”
Checking my watch, I purse my lips in thought. “I don’t know. I’m coming off a bad date, so that puts a lot of pressure on you to redeem my night. If you don’t, that will be two bad dates in one night. Might be a record.”
“I’m up for the challenge.” I knew he was, but I love that he takes the bait . . . I mean, up to the task. When he looks at me, it’s as if he sees my thoughts, and my cheeks heat in response. Taking a few steps closer, so close that my eyes dip closed as if I’m about to be kissed, he says, “As I see it, we have several options.”
Playing off how bad I just misread that situation—again, I might add, recalling the last rejection from him that I barely survived—I tap my eye as if dust invaded the corner. “Sorry,” I reply, blinking like a crazy person. Lowering my arm, I latch my good eye onto him. “Several options, you say? Do tell.”
He gives me a second full once-over and then rubs the pad of his thumb over his bottom lip as if he’s devising a plan. The intensity of his eyes lands back on me. “We can get a drink at a nearby bar. Or maybe you’re up to hang out at my hotel suite . . . or your place. Whatever you want to do, I’m all yours.”
A smirk splits his lips. “Since Catalina, but that’s old news, and I want to hear about the new you.”
“Natalie in New York versus you in California.”
Undecided on what I want to do, I look down the street one way and then the other, but with him standing so close, his scent has our past trickling back into my memories. I turn back to face him. “I know a place not too far from here. It’s low-key at this hour, but then turns into an after-hours dance club.”
“I prefer low key.”
“Then we have ourselves a date.”
We make it to the corner before he says, “You look good, by the way.”
“Thanks. You aren’t so shabby yourself.” The sound of his laughter is addicting, and don’t get me started on that cute smile. I’d almost forgotten about those dimples.
He playfully knocks his elbow into mine. “Looking on the bright side paid off.”
“You told me that if we look on the bright side, we won’t be strangers the next time we meet. And here we are—not strangers.”
“At the time, it was one of my wiser pieces of free advice.”
“What about now?”
“I’d tell you to get my phone number. Much wiser, but you know, we could reintroduce ourselves and share our numbers just in case one of us goes MIA.” Hint. Hint. Hint.
