Today is the biggest day of my professional career. I’ve got one shot to prove I can play with the big boys and the Lachlan account is my ticket. I’ve never been more prepared for anything in my life. So of course that went up in flames.
In hindsight, stopping to get my chocolate milk fix right before the big meeting might not have been the best decision. Neither was fighting for the last jug with a flirty Thor-lookalike. In my defense, not even a Disney-prince-smolder delivered by a sweaty sex god is a match for an anxiety-fueled chocolate craving.
And had I known before walking into that meeting that my sweaty, sex-god, milk-thief was none other than Christopher Lachlan, the new client on whom my career hung, I’d have definitely skipped my morning stop.
Curse my dumb friggin’ luck. I would be attracted to the one person I can’t have.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
If you’re in the mood for a light, fun and sexy read Pushing His Luck will be a great choice!
Charley’s luck isn’t really the best. A traumatic event in her past left her in desperate need to keep control of everything at all times… and like a self-fulfilled prophecy, she ends up being a klutzy duck 90% of the time. With a career as a risk assessor, she lives for safety and prudence and she is very comfortable with that.
Chris’ middle name would probably be Daredevil (if he had one, I don’t know for sure). His adrenaline-seeking lifestyle clashes with what people, and especially insurance companies, feel the CEO of a million-dollar company’s should be. But in order to keep being a CEO, he needs insurance, and that means passing a risk assessment. Que in trying to convince Charley, the safety police, that all the stuff he does is not that risky. In order to do this, he’ll take Charley with him in one of his trips, so she can see for herself that he is not as reckless as it seems.
Chris and Charley’s romance is of the opposites-attract-but-they-don’t-want-to-give-in-to-it variety. The more time they spend together though, they realize they’re not all that different, and soon their attraction is too much to handle. I really enjoyed their banter and baiting of each other.
Chris was a total carefree spirit, a bit of an adrenaline junky but in an “I-want-to-experience-life-at-its-fullest” kind of way. He had his typically male moments where he completely fucks up, but he was charming enough to get back in my good graces. I loved witnessing Charley’s evolution. There was a reason for her attitude towards life, but with Chris’s help, she comes to some realizations that help her deal with said issues.
While I really enjoyed Pushing His Luck, it didn’t totally suck me in as the first two books in this series. I felt there were some missed opportunities to deepen some aspects of the story, and it left me at times feeling disconnected from the characters. Still, this is a super fun, light and entertaining read that had me laughing from start to finish.
