American Football romance, 'Lucky Number Eleven', by Adriana Locke, was a well-written, fun, fast and light read. Yet, Adriana added depth, emotions, conflict and reflections, too. Exposé, the gossip magazine played an important part in the plot and the football references weren't difficult to follow. The MCs were, Illinois Legends footballer, Branch ‘Lucky’ Best and Fashion Blogger, Layla James Miller. Branch had a media reputation for being a manwhore, and while cocky, he was actually charming, funny, sexy, sweet and thoughtful (turns out he was quite naughty, too). Layla was the smart, gorgeous, independent and spirited younger sister of Branch's teammate, Finn. Layla and Poppy (her friend) had a weekend of quiet relaxation in mind at the Miller's holiday cabin by Lake Michigan. (Layla was recovering from a broken heart.) Branch and Finn had the same idea for some down time. Layla was taboo - Finn warned Branch, not to touch! As Layla and Branch's attraction was powerful, they both ignored the warning, and 'went for it!' Just a fling, no harm done...right?! I loved the MCs relationship - natural and uncontrived and their banter was clever and flirty. (At the same time, the subplot involved Finn and Poppy.) Told in a dual POV, the solid, feel good plot revolved around the MC's romance and dealt with the their growing feelings, after the 'no strings' deal disintegrated. It also involved several challenges. I enjoyed 'Lucky Number Eleven'. Adriana's stories have become automatic downloads for me.
