By Carly Phillips #1 in Lucky Trilogy Grade CI had heard a lot of things about Carly Phillips most of it good Getting tired with my usual contemporary romances whose stories are not offering anything new I decided to try someone new I was horribly disappointedLong ago as revenge on a Corwin who stole her son’s fiancée a witch proclaimed an eternal curse that every Corwin male who married for love would be destined to lose his woman and his fortuneDerek thought he could outsmart the long standing Corwin curse by breaking up with Gabrielle his first love””and marrying someone else Now divorced and broke all he has left is his teenage daughter and a healthy respect for ancient sorcery But then Gabrielle returns determined to defeat the curse and rekindle their passion But will her stubborn streak and her unwavering love be the lucky charm Derek so desperately needsThe book started out with potential I was intrigued by the curse and thought it might add some spice to the storyThe base of this series is that many generations before after one man stole another man’s woman a curse was placed on the Corwin family men saying that any man who married for love would lose his woman and his fortune And in the years since everything that has happened has seemed to support the curse being realHowever as the story comes back to the present it loses its steam Derek ended things between his high school sweetheart Gabrielle Donovan fearing the curse would repeat itself and he didn’t want to hurt her Typical alpha male calling the shots What I didn’t understand that if the heroine was so smart and strong and in love with him why didn’t she do something then instead of coming to her senses fourteen years later when Gabrielle comes back to prove Derek that there is nothing true about the curse and that they can have a future togetherDerek is not the only one sceptical about Gabrielle for soon after she arrives in her old hometown she starts getting serious threats by someone who wants her gone The situation gets even complicated because of Derek’s daughter who adores Gabrielle but Derek’s ex wife still has some issues with him and threatens Derek for sole custody In the end it comes down to what Derek has trust in an old family curse that dictated his love life forever or himself and Gabrielle and their love to each otherThe characters are stupid dumb flat as a single paper and just annoying I am still wondering if they have anything else on their mind than sex Because this whole book is just about to get into someone’s pants The so called “plot” is practically non existent Even the so called villains Mary and her grand daughter were the most poorly written Instead of giving the characters depth to me it felt that Carly was dancing around giving these two characters personalities until the very end when Gabby’s “plan” just happened to pull through at the nick of time without a hitchThe daughter whose name I have already forgotten doesn’t act like an eleven year old I have been around eleven year old nosy girls and believe me they are just not that interested in their father’s sex lives or get smitten by another woman so uickly The daughter and Derek’s relationship could have been explored and might have vastly improved the story but the author here also barely skims the surface In the first scene he is not on good terms with his daughter so that even when he tries to hug her she stiffens By the third scene they are best friendsWhich brings me to Gabby For a character that’s supposed to be strong she’s very closed minded and weak Her strength comes from the only thing she seems to knowyes sex The only time she was strong was when she could get Derek in bed or work at getting Derek into bed After that she became child like especially when it came to her best friendPredictable storyline predictable mystery generic romance as well as bedroom scenes Hero and heroine are both pretty lame and the storyline is way far fetched and easily forgettableThat’s when I did something I hardly ever do I skipped pages and not just a few like 200 of them I read the last chapter and wasn’t surprised to find out what was going on and if I am being honest and already knew what was going to happen before I even read itAnother reviewer mentioned that it is a book you don’t have to “think about” when reading and sadly that’s true Average at best I am never ever going to make the mistake of picking up another novel by herOriginally reviewed at wwwthe vaultcocc

Lucky CharmLong ago as revenge on a Corwin who stole her son’s fiancee a witch proclaimed an eternal curse that every Corwin male who married for love would be destined to lose his love and his fortuneDerek thought. A fluffy bit of nonsense based around an ancient family cursebut it was well written
