Luck Be a Lady (Lucky in Love #2) by Audra North (Review)

Luck Be a Lady
(Lucky in Love #2)
by Audra North

He's a mistake she can't afford to make... and a temptation she can't resist.

Lucky in Love, Book 2
Fifteen years ago, Michael Faraday's best friend walked out of his life without so much as a goodbye when her family moved to America. He managed to convinced himself that it didn't matter... after all, they'd been only teenagers when it happened. But when he hears that she's back in Ireland, even if only temporarily, feelings he thought had been buried long ago come rushing to the surface.

Aoife Fitzpatrick can think of a thousand places she'd rather be than Dublin, but it's simply too difficult to establish a European headquarters for her cosmetics company from thousands of miles away. Her plan is to be in Ireland for only as long as it takes to get the ball rolling. As soon as she can, she'll leave this country with its unhappy memories and hopefully won't return for another fifteen years at least.

When Michael Faraday suddenly reappears in her life, Aoife realizes that her teenage crush on him has evolved into a very adult attraction. With their lives built firmly and separately across the expanse of an ocean, can she keep her emotions from becoming involved this time? Or will she find herself fleeing Ireland in heartbreak all over again?

Can two people that use to be best friends let past misunderstandings slide and fall in love? That is what this story is about, Michael and Aoife were childhood friends - best of friends - until one day when Aoife overheard Michael saying things about her that she couldn't forgive or forget. It just so happens that her family was moving away at that time so she cut off all communication with Michael. Now Aoife is returning to Ireland from her current home in the United States, it brings a feeling a melancholy but she just wants to do what needs to be done and leave again, preferably without running into anyone from her past.

When Michael and Aoife reunite for the first time it's like a sucker punch to the gut for both of them. They had an attraction as teenagers but since they were best friends neither of them pushed for anything more but now here we are fifteen years later and the attraction is still there as is all of the hurt and anger on both sides.

Can Michael give Aoife the HEA she deserves or will he turn out to be just like everyone else that just uses her to get something that they need from her?

This book can be read as a standalone even though it is the second book in the series which is exactly what I did, but since I enjoyed it so much I plan on going back and reading the other two books in the series Pushing Her Luck book # 1, and A Stroke Of Luck Book #1.5
