Mini ARC Review - Lucky Girl: A Dose of Darkness Novella

Seven years ago, Teddy Drucker disappeared. He changed his name, altered his appearance, and abandoned his corporate aspirations, fleeing for his life. What choice did he have? In over his head with the cops who’d accused him of murdering his girlfriend and the kind of guys who don’t think twice about cleaning up loose ends with a well-placed bullet.

Now, Trevor Dent is a new man. With a Ph.D. and a cute little car and therapy clients who trust him with their dirty secrets. But when his new patient calls him by his old name and his girlfriend turns up missing, Trevor realizes the past can’t be erased. And his past has a name and a face and the kind of secrets a man would kill for.

Only forty-eight hours to save his girlfriend’s life, and Trevor is back on the run. With a go-bag and a stolen car and an unlikely ally who has her own demons. As the bodies pile up behind them, he’s betting it all on her. He’s hoping this girl is as lucky as she seems. Because this time the odds are stacked against them and the stakes are impossibly high. This time, he’s gambling with both their lives.

Mini ARC Breakdown

Let's waste no time and get right to it! 

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

By now, I’m sure it’s pretty clear I love just about anything this author puts out and this one was no exception! The story is excellent! Very tense and dark. The vibe of this book sells it to me. It’s freaking perfect for an autumn TBR. Even better for spooky TBR.

My only complaint was I wanted more. After reading this author for so long, I can say that while this novella is great, she really shines with her full-length novels. So if you read this and like it, I can personally guarantee you’ll love her other works even more.
