So Damn Lucky by Deborah Coonts

4 Star

Lucky O’Toole—Head of Customer Relations at The Babylon, premier mega-resort on the Vegas Strip—thinks it’s just another night in Las Vegas. But then a magician pulls a disappearing act, right under Lucky’s nose. Is it a stunt? Or something worse?

While Lucky chases leads, someone is trying to put her off the scent. As if this wasn’t enough to ruin her day, Lucky’s relationship with The Big Boss is coming to a head—past hurts can no longer be denied. Of course, she is already on shaky emotional ground: Teddie, her live-in, has been touring with a young and lovely pop star. Paxton Dane, former coworker and would-be suitor, is still circling, hoping to find a chink in the armor of Lucky’s resolve. And then, there’s this French chef, who is proving to be too hot to handle….

I was not familiar with this series when I picked up So Damn Lucky though I had another one of the Lucky O'Toole books piled up beside my bed. Having never read one of this series before, I wasn't sure what to expect and to be honest, it isn't my usual type of read. But I did really enjoy these adventures, as far fetched as I might have felt them to be. Though I also haven't ever been to Vegas, so perhaps this is what really happens there, after all, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right?

The thing that struck me the most about the characters in the story were how vivid and utterly unforgettable each and every one of them were. The author definitely put some thought into what type of characters she wanted to include and then developed them into really interesting extremes of certain personas which I really liked.

This book was fast paced and kept throwing new curve balls at every twist. It seemed to have a lot happen in a short period of time but was written in such a way that it all made sense and nothing made me think that I was missing something or that something had been left out.

After having read this book, I'll definitely go back soon and read the other Lucky O'Toole book I have sitting around as I'm curious to see what else our heroine has gotten up to.
