For Me Reading Aboutme reading about s steamy bedroom scenes She is the grandmother in this story although she was young 4 I can t get nough of gossipy small towns It reminds me of growing up and takes me to an oh so familiar place 5 Did I mention a sick child The only thing that could pull the hearstrings would have been a sick child with a puppy Now to be honest we do not see the child suffering a whole lot throughout so the story is not all dark and depressing I njoyed this story and would not hesitate to read others that take place in the fictional town of Nugget I have only read a few books in this series but this has to be my favorite Lucky left town 9 years ago when he was accused of rape by his girlfriends family Before he left he had a one night stand with Tawny and the next day he was gone He made it big in the rodeo circuit but now he is home to start a new chapter of his life Tawny has always had a thing for Lucky as far back as she can remember but after her one night with the cowboy she nds up pregnant Now 9 years later Tawny needs Luckys help to save their daughters lifeNormally I don t like when a hero has another partner in a story other then the heroine but with all the history between these characters it made sense for the author to go down this road I m not saying he slept with them both at the same time but he did hop from one bed to the other Okay now moving on I like the town and how the story developed from page to page I An Italian Education enjoyed how Lucky started to gain feelings for Tawnyven though she was fiercely independent which was an awesome uality she had Some of two drama with lucky and what was happening with his new business and his Protecting the Colton Bride Coltons Cowboy Code ex was a little much at times I felt bad for the guy it was one thing after another I really didnjoy this book and I can t wait to see of the sexy tattooed chef Brady I m xcited his book is next and I can t wait to hear about his past Already this man has me intrigue. Eeds a transplant she can't provide But if Lucky is a stem cell match all that could change The trouble is Lucky's got a past in Nugget that makes him off limits as anything than a donor for her daughter And yet Tawny's never stopped loving the man who now holds her family's fate in his cowboy callused hand. Too little too late from imo ARC REVIEW Getting Lucky #Book 5 In Stacy Finz S Nugget California Series This #5 in Stacy Finz s Nugget California series This was funny aggravating sweetly romantic and verything I ve come to xpect from Stacy Finz Lucky starts off the book a complete moron Blinded by first love and a fantasy that could never be He has worked hard to be the best and to prove he isn t trash Tawny is a strong woman she has to be she s been alone for most of her life She has struggled with a sick father and then a sick child she has worked hard to be the best boot maker around Lucky is so oblivious and obnoxious at the start but halfway through you start

T least not at firstThis was an interesting book lots of topics touched on lots of sweet romance Lucky was not my favorite character in the series I felt he was always pretty self centered and it took him a LONG time to realize that he wasn t meant to be with his old girlfriend after all Maybe just that machismo thing going on He was however a really wonderful single dad to his daughter from the moment he found out about herReceived this as an ARC from NetGalley You can read reviews at 9 years ago Tawny had a one night stand with Lucky The next day he left town and made it big in the rodeo circuit Lucky didn t know that his one night stand resulted in a daughter Lucky s daughter has leukemia #And Needs Lucky For A Stem Cell #needs Lucky for a stem cell When Lucky finds out about his daughter he loves her and becomes an amazing father Tawny has Reviewed for Romancing the Readers Blog who have been following me know how much I ve loved this series I read the whole series at the beginning of the year and wanted to make sure that before the year The Family Plan ended I reviewed them all I m not in a big rush because I left it till it s almost too late Up this time we have Lucky and Tawny You ll love Lucky right awayven though he doesn t always make good choices in women It will take the right woman for him to see that This is one of the A Family Practice emotional stories in the series for me And that s saying a lot since many of them tug at the heartstrings I think for me it s because poor Lucky is dealing with a crazyx girlfriend wait till you read her storywho knew and finding out he has a daughter he never knew about A sick one to boot See what I mean A Doctor in Her Stocking (From Here to Maternity emotionalI have to say that sometimes I found myself yelling at characters in this book I just love it when that happens I want them to see what was right in front of them Of course if they had the book would have been over to fast so it worked out for the best This is one of those books that throw a ton at you and you ve got to wade through till thend I really got tired of Raylene and her father The man is insane and a bully At times mostly in the beginning Lucky acted a little childish about wanting what couldn t be I did forgive him because of all he was going through And deep down he s a great guy I also liked Tawny Celebrity Bachelor even though she didn t tell Lucky about his I understood why I think I flip flop on my feelings here It is what it is and no one can go back and change it soveryone has to move on I think out of all the stories the most happened in this one It s a very busy story but that only made the romance part better This book is the perfect reason why I read a series in order for the most part You need to read this before Raylene s story which is at the For Better and Worse end It just works better that way Follow me on This may just be the best book in the series so far I love how Ms Finz spices up a sweet story about family hope and love by throwing in some mystery and suspense I reallynjoyed this story and I Cassidys Kids (Maitland Maternity, especially loved Tawny Tawny Wade is in need of some good luck in her life Her daughter has leukemia and is in need of a transplant that she can t provide She s down to her last option contacting her daughter s father and hoping that he would be a match and donate the bone marrow that she needs But first she has to tell him ten years after their one night stand that he has a nine year old daughter that she had kept from him Tawny loved Lucky Rodriguez back in high school and kept the identity of her baby s father secret to protect Lucky back then but Lucky only hadyes for Raylene the daughter of the richest man in townLucky Rodriguez s successful career as a bull rider has Rescuing the Texans Heart earned him celebrity status in his hometown of Nugget California but it wasn t always so Ten years ago Lucky narrowlyscaped a false rape accusation when he left town suddenly and joined the rodeo Now he s back and in for the shock his life
