I received this book as an ARC. What a tremendous sequel to Jodi L Perry's 'Bastard', it continued with the birth of Indie and Carter's daughter, what happens during and afterwards the birth keeps you on the edge of your seat. I am not in the habit of giving spoilers but the intensity is off the charts. Jodi has yet again captured her characters with such emotion the book had me wiping at my eyes often. Loved the first Christmas, wanted more though. (I'm being greedy) Can't get enough of Jodi L Perry her work is superb.
I will tell you right now - this follows on from Ms Perry's book Bastard. I have not read Bastard, however that did not at all stop me from enjoying Luckiest Bastard, and I will be going back to read Bastard in the near future.
It does have spoilers though if you haven't read Bastard.
I adored Carter and Indi's story and what I got to learn of their family. Such a beautiful family. They have their ups and downs like the rest of us (don't you just hate when a book has that perfect family where nothing ever goes wrong - or is that just me??)
I have not read any of Ms Perry's work before (sad isn't it, when I have signed books on myshelves!). I adored her writing style - quick and to the point, flowing well.
There is also a lovely Christmas story at the end of Luckiest Bastard - and it made me want for a White Christmas!
If you have read Bastard, you need to read Luckiest Bastard.

I enjoyed reading both the Luckiest Bastard and bonus book First White Christmas.
Luckiest Bastard follows Carter and Indiana 2yrs later settling into married life with 2 kids and a 3rd on the way. Life is perfect for them but they are about to have an event that could change that.
First White Christmas is a short bonus book. Carter wants to give his family a special christmas vacation to remember always.
Both stories are beautifully written and makes you fall in love with these character all over again. I do however wish they were a bit longer. If you loved " Bastard " you will love both of these short stories. We also got a glimpse of new book "Hooker" and I can't wait until its released.
Luckiest Barstard Jody L Perry 5⭐️ This starts 2 years down the line Carter and Indiana are about to add a beautiful daughter to the family not without complications.......This starts a roller coaster of a journey for Carter and a big decision that could change his life with Indiana forever but it's a decision that is not taken lightly it's because of his ever doting love for her he makes it. Jody has excelled herself again and it brought me tears of happiness the Christmas bonus chapter is just the perfect ending to a brilliant novella.....,
JL Perry didn't disappoint. It was great to revisit carter and Indi. They have such a special relationship and the love between them just draws you in. What a beautiful thing for carter to do for Indi at Christmas!! I have enjoyed every single one of JL Perry's books and this is just another one that I will have to read over and over.
