Review: Lady Luck (Colorado Mountain, #3) by Kristen Ashley

Tuesday, July 19
My rating:

Since birth, Lexie Berry has had nothing but bad luck. Orphaned at an early age, she had a rough childhood and a boyfriend who was murdered. Now the beautiful, stylish Lexie is determined to change her luck and her life. But first she's got to make good on a promise: to pick up Ty Walker from prison. One look at the gorgeous ex-convict and Lexie knows she's in trouble-and already thinking about taking a walk on the wild side . . .

For five years, Ty was imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit. Now he wants revenge on the people who framed him. Yet when the high-stakes poker player sees the leggy Lexie, he suddenly has other desires on his mind. Realizing that Ty is innocent, Lexie tries to stop his plan for vengeance and help him become a better man. But as Ty battles his inner demons, dirty cops and criminals plot to take him out. Can he and Lexie find a way to escape the past?

What I loved:
Loved everything about this book. Every. Gotdamnedthing.
- KA writes delicious backstory for both these characters, and I loved learning more about them.
- Lexie's loyalty. I really enjoyed the way her character tried to (rightly) defend the people she loved, and I'm so thrilled KA confirmed that Ronnie wasn't the douche Ty wanted to make him out to be.

Overall…
I knew I was going to love Ty from the minute he walked out the prison gates - and I was not disappointed! And right when I was starting to think KA only wrote vapid, mentally compromised doormats, we get Lexie! Strong, resilient, fun, quirky, positive, loving, thankful for all the good in her life... and she had backbone. This is one of very few KA books where the hero grovels enough to make up for what he did wrong. Normally there seems to be the hero forcing himself on the heroine, then she 'melts,' then she forgets why she was angry, then they have makeup sex. If you're tired of spineless, nobody heroines - this is your lucky day!
