Review Source: Author (Newsletter)

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.

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.

*This is a STANDALONE ROMANCE.

This was my first time reading Adriana Locke (yes I was a Locke virgin, but no more) and Lucky Number Eleven just made me want to buy up more of her books and the other Exposé stories after experiencing the sweet, flirty and just gush-worthy story and characters here. Layla and Branch are just so cute together, and Poppy, Paula's best friend, and Finn, Branch's best friend and Layla's brother, fit perfect as their foils in this enchanting sports read.

I'll be honest I am a huge Helena Hunting fan, and I never thought someone could write couples as cute as Helena, with quirkiness and awkwardness that's endearing and so very real but Adriana Locke has created a book and characters that are as witty and fun as Hunting's Pucked series. I hadn't wanted Layla and Branch's story to end. Branch is a cocky sports star who has led a man whoring life, until Layla James Miller--his best friend's sister. She's done with footballers and any other sports star out there, but Branch and Paula's chemistry is too magnetic. Soon Layla is in too deep and Branch has been blindsided and tackled.

I read this book in one sitting, never wanting to put it down. You become completely absorbed in the storyline and rooting for Layla and Branch. This book is for every romantic out there, and doubly if you want a book that will keep you laughing and smiling to the end.
