Critic Reviews

"A one-sit, must-read novel full of memorable characters and unforgettable vignettes. Levine's pacing is perfect as always, and the pages just fly by, even as he juggles multiple plots with his own unique aplomb." (

"Another winner. A taut and dazzling legal thriller and a sly and witty rumination on the meaning of justice." (Robert Dugoni, number one Wall Street Journal and number one Amazon best-selling author)

"Immensely entertaining. Paul Levine is among the best authors of legal thrillers, right up there with Grisham and Turow." (Lee Goldberg, number one New York Times best-selling author)

Can't Wait for the Next Jake Lassiter Book!

I love Paul Levine's fluid, easy writing style, and I can't wait to see what happens to Jake in the book that will follow Cheater's Game. I actually listened to Cheater's Game before Bum Luck, so I had to listen to Bum Luck right away to find out how Jake's love life had so significantly changed. Paul Levine got me invested in Jake's personal life while creating passionate, but subtle intimate scenes, a refreshing change from some of the explicit sex you find in so much literature now. This book will leave you worrying about Jake's health though. I haven't started the Solomon and Lord series yet, but Bum Luck certainly put it on my list.

I think Netflix needs to do a season for each book in the Jake Lassiter series! I'd really love to see the action, adventure, romance, beautiful Florida scenery, and such well developed characters come to my TV!

I was happy to hear Luke Daniels' voice again in this Audible book. He has such a sexy, masculine voice for Jake, but his voices for Charlie Riggs, Granny, Kip, and others are so unique that it's easy to visualize each of them.

Bum Luck

Great storyline, this book should be read before the eleventh book of the Jake Lassiter series. I would recommend this book.
Excellent narration.
