Book Review for Lucky Streak by Tif Marcelo

 Lucky Streak by Tif Marcelo 

Paperback, 336 pages

Publication: September 27th 2022 by Montlake


Taken from Goodreads:
  From the USA Today bestselling author of Know You by Heart comes a spirited romance set in the Heart Resort universe—a love story about fate, family, and second chances.

I never thought I’d see her again. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? But five years later, my casino fling is my new next-door neighbor.

A lot’s happened since we got acquainted in that hotel room. I finished out my military career, took a job with my estranged father, moved to the beach…the only thing that hasn’t changed is that Beatrice has always been on my mind. I can’t let her get away again. Lucky for me, she feels the same way.

Not so lucky, though, is our families’ business rivalry—and our resorts’ competition for the same property.

As much as I want to ride off into the sunset with Beatrice on the back of my bike, we want to make this work. And that means smoothing things out between our families.

If we thought finding each other after our night in Vegas was a long shot, this feud is about to give impossible a whole new meaning. 

My Thoughts:  What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, until she moves in next door to you.   I love it!    Beatrice is a successful businesswoman with a growing company, a large close family, and amazing friends.   Her love life is nonexistence, and no one can compare to that one night in Vegas.  Then she moves in next to The Cathy Hill and meets her son.   The son is the man, Jackson, from Vegas.   You would think it would be easy, just pick up where you left off and let the sparks fly.   The issue is that Jackson’s dad and Beatrice’s family are in a feud.  Neither family will be happy with this match.


I love the heat and sparks that fly between them.  I almost expected the book to catch on fire.  Yet the book has such a sweet side.   Jackson and Beatrice had respect and love for each other but they both also did not want to hurt their families.   Family is important to them both and they must weigh the risks before they can declare their love for each other.  I hated to see them struggle but I knew that they had to figure out how important they were to each other before they could move on and become the couple they were destined to be. 

Tif Marcelo is phenomenal.   She has quickly become a must-read author for me.  Her books stay on my bookshelf and I recommend them often.
