Loveland, Colorado is a special place all year around, a community of creativity and art, with scenic views and majestic mountains. But the town really shines once a year, on Valentine’s Day.
Lucky Roberts has lived in Loveland his whole life. He has good friends, strong family support, and is all about keeping his community fun and alive. The only thing Lucky has been “unlucky” with is love. But rather than avoiding February fourteenth in his hometown, he throws himself into helping others deliver their messages of love.
Enter Jack Canon. Jack moved to Loveland for a fresh start, in both his personal and professional lives. After a tough year, he’s finally hoping to just blend in, maybe carve a little niche for himself that his parents would have been proud of. What he didn’t expect was a pseudo-lumberjack with a killer body and shy smile to turn his world upside down – and he sure didn’t expect to like it so much.
When Lucky meets Jack, he feels like a thirteen year-old with his first crush. He’s clumsy, stammering, and the first greeting out of his mouth is a less than articulate, “Wow!” Words like adorable and manbun suddenly become part of his vocabulary as he discovers a deep, hidden need to romance the hell out of Jack.
And what better way to do that than during the most romantic season in the City of Love?
So this was all kinds of adorable and being the first read from the author for me, I am intrigued.
Lucky in Loveland is a sweet tale of two men trying to not screw things up in a town that is made for love. Literally, like made for love.
Told from the Dual POV’s of Lucky our resident larger than life in all ways hockey coach and Jack, our pseudo hippie Kindergarten teacher we get to see each side as the boys navigate their way around each other and the town’s notorious affair with Valentine’s Day.
I really loved Lucky. He was a tough to get a hold on early in the story but once you get that he is kinda like a big kid that you want to cuddle and make laugh, you get why Jack would fall for him.
Jack… He is a Kindergarten teacher with a man bun… need I say more? I mean, that alone scores points in my book but Jack has moved to Loveland for a new start and his reasons made me want to hug him to. Actually I just wanted these two to hug and hug a lot and them hug some more, possibly naked. What can I say? When you have a romance surrounded by snow you need to pull off all layers, not just the emotional one, to get to the raw… where was I again?
This was a slow burn romance but it couldn’t have been told any other way. Both Lucky and Jack have their reasons for wanting to take things slow and I adored how they did it. Lucky with his surprise dates and all they are and Jack with, well Jack with the way he sees Lucky, it was just lovely to read these two and watch their awkward flirting, love of breakfast for dinner and intimate moments.
I hope there will be more from these two in the series as I am not quite done with them yet.
