Book Review: My Lucky Night

By Sara Steven

Cassie isn’t a fan of Christmas. After a string of unlucky incidents during the festive season—including getting dumped—this year she decides to spend the day at home. Alone. No men. No complications.

But then her nightmare boss demands she track down this year’s most coveted Christmas gift—and the only person who can help is an annoyingly sexy Frenchman she’s just met.

Nicolas might look hot, but Cassie can tell he’s also arrogant, irritating and in love with himself. Exactly the kind of guy she hates. Plus, he’ll only help her find the gift if she helps him with something in return...

Could Cassie’s festive fortunes finally be about to change? Can she learn to love Christmas again? And will Cassie get lucky in more ways than one?

While I’ve never had any inciting incidents that cause me to steer clear of Christmas cheer, I could relate with Cassie on her desire to spend her holidays at home, alone. After all of the horrible experiences she’d had around that time of year, she wants to let the day go by like it’s just another number on the calendar. 

When it comes down to it, she has a choice: to stay indoors away from everyone and everything, or to spend the holiday season with the most infuriating, yet most gorgeous man she’s ever met in her life. What to do, what to do….

My Lucky Night
 was a really cute and fun experience. Aside from her obnoxious boss, who made me grimace more than a time or two, I really enjoyed watching and seeing where things would end up for Cassie and Nicolas. He’s not at all Cassie’s type, but as the story unfolds, we get to see that not all is as it seems, for either character. The premise behind how the two meet, and how they find themselves “stuck” together was a really unique way to get things rolling, and I enjoyed going along for the ride. 

I was really surprised–and in a good way–about the steam level factor in this book! It did not deflect from the cuteness or the fun, adding another layer of extreme spiciness! Hello Nicolas! (The elevator scene) Letting down her hair so to speak, and releasing her inhibitions shows a good amount of character evolution for Cassie. This is the same person who had started out with the bah humbugs, and I felt the transition was done in a nice way, with good pacing. Even after a major bump in the road makes Cassie question everything she knows about Nicolas, you can tell that the growth she’d acquired over chapters is still there, enabling her to handle things head-on. 

If you’re looking for a holiday read that offers up a spicy kick, this one is it!
