Publisher's Summary

From NY Times and USA Today best-selling author Jana DeLeon.  

Mallory Devereaux is known throughout the town of Royal Flush, Louisiana, as a walking disaster, and her luck just got worse. She needs to raise $10,000 in one week to keep the IRS from seizing her adoptive father’s business, where she works as the demolition foreman.   

When the opportunity to cool cards at her uncle’s casino comes up, Mallory hopes her luck is changing. But when she realizes her uncle has assembled a tournament of criminals, she wonders what she’s stepped in the middle of.

Pushed through it...

It was an easy listen, not too exciting. Characters were cute and well developed. The romance though was too overwhelming, not written well, and took away from the story not complimented it. To add to the slow story the narrators voice dragged it out even more. Think I will stick to the miss fortune series.

Convoluted plot

I stopped trying to follow the plot a little way in. I only finished it because I usually finish books I start.

Disappointed

Disappointed with all the sex. If I wanted that type of book I would choose some other author with no imagination who need to fill blank pages to get there word count minimum.

Poker players should enjoy this.

I'm a big fan of two of Jana DeLeon's series, Miss Fortune and Shaye Archer, and have read some of her other standalones. Unlucky is one of those and I'm sorry to say I didn't enjoy it anywhere near as much as the others. First of all, there was far too much poker talk and I'm not a card player so it was all over my head.

The other problem I had with it was the paranormal aspect. I'm just not a fan of that genre.

Overall, it was a decent summertime listen, just not up to her standard.

Waste of Money

If you’re into stupid supernatural, voodoo, sliced chicken throats, stupid people, functioning alcoholics, sex between two people with perfect bodies who just met and are in love within days, a lackluster story, and rampant sacrilegious references, you’ll enjoy this. Otherwise, just say no.

Way Too Explicit!

Way too much explicit sex. There should be a warning on Audible. I'll be returning this book.

Disappointed 😞

The narrator was difficult to understand and no inflection to differentiate the characters. I am so disappointed in the audio, the book was muddled .....
