Synopsis: Today is the biggest day of my professional career. I’ve got one shot to prove I can play with the big boys and the Lachlan account is my ticket. I’ve never been more prepared for anything in my life. So of course that went up in flames.
In hindsight, stopping to get my chocolate milk fix right before the big meeting might not have been the best decision. Neither was fighting for the last jug with a flirty Thor-lookalike. In my defense, not even a Disney-prince-smolder delivered by a sweaty sex god is a match for an anxiety-fueled chocolate craving.
And had I known before walking into that meeting that my sweaty, sex-god, milk-thief was none other than Christopher Lachlan, the new client on whom my career hung, I’d have definitely skipped my morning stop.
Curse my dumb friggin’ luck. I would be attracted to the one person I can’t have.
Pushing His Luck follows the misadventures of clumsy Charley as she trys to go out on her own with her business. But, thanks to her luck, her first client is the man she got into a chocolate milk standoff with earlier that morning.
“Damn, the Disney Prince smolder was strong with this one.”
Christopher Lachlan is the CEO of vacation rentals who is just trying to get insured so he can remain the CEO. Being a total risk-taker and adrenaline junkie, he is the exact opposite of Charley. Cautious and always in control, Charley is leaning towards the fact that Chris takes too many risks to be insured. One thing leads to another and suddenly Charley finds herself going on a business trip with Chris so he can prove to her that the risks he takes aren’t really risks.
“The woman was a walking menace. Assessing risk for a living was a perfect job for her. She’d need to know the exact risk of any given situation so she’d know her probability of making it out alive.”
I love a good opposites attract story and this was just that! They had the most adorable meet-cute and their chemistry just snow-balled from there. Chris really helped get Charley out of her shell but accepted her for who she was. I thought the banter between all the characters was so fun and the pacing of the story was great, if not a bit slow at first. Even though this is book 4 it could easily be read as a standalone. I felt it was pretty apparent that it was a book in a series just for how often some of the side characters get mentioned though. This was a fun, quick read that I finished up in a day. I enjoyed it overall and think I just might have to read the first three books in this series!

USA Today bestselling author Kira Archer lives in Pennsylvania with her hubs and two kids. And 3 ridiculous cats. She’s one of those people who laughs at inappropriate moments (especially overly emotional occasions like weddings or funerals), and she has an insanely overactive imagination which is great when she’s writing but not so great when she’s shutting all the lights off at night and then has to go up the stairs. She has a PhD in Procrastination (or would if there was such a thing and there soooo should be because she’s seriously at expert level here). And if she’s not writing, she’s reading, or thinking about reading or writing. And running her kids around because they are busy and she’s the taxi driver. She also writes historical romances as Michelle McLean.
