Lucky Number Eleven (Exposé #5) by Adriana Locke
Publication: September 6th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
I’ve always been the person that does whatever someone tells me I can’t.
Can’t graduate with a four-point-oh? Check. Can’t win a modeling contract without trying? Did it. Check. Can’t make it in the pro football league? Triple check with an MVP Award on top. When my best friend told me to stay away from his little sister, Layla, it didn’t sound like a challenge. Then again, I’d never seen her before. He obviously wasn’t thinking about who he was talking to if he believed I could ignore her. I obviously wasn’t thinking of him at all when I fell in love with her either. The fact of the matter is: I not only fell harder than a quarterback sack on a Sunday night game, but I did us one better. Kind of like that MVP award, only not so shiny. Sort of like my Player of the Year title, except the only thing I’m walking away with, is an ex-best friend and a woman that hates my guts. It’s okay. Just tell me I can’t win her back. I’m Branch “Lucky” Best and today’s my lucky day.
Add on: Goodreads
So, this book was…not good. I read 50% then skimmed 20% then just DNF’ed it. The sex scenes were VERY cringy and just the way the character’s acted was cringe. I hated how Layla’s brother acted like her father telling her who she can and can’t be with. He was so annoying I could not stand him. Like he got to mess around with her best friend but he freaked out and told two GROWN ADULTS (like 25-30+ people) who they can and can’t hook up with lmao??? Make it make sense bro. Also, Layla and Branch were just boring. I didn’t care about them or what was happening to them. They had cute moments but really everything just moved too fast for me. I didn’t really care for the pregnancy plot it felt rushed and messy. There was no context or background information that really made me care for these people. This review will just be me saying how much I hated this book so here is a review that perfectly sums up why this book was not good by a Goodreads reviewer.
