Sometimes love has nothing to do with luck, and everything to do with karma. . . Marcy Paget worked full time putting her husband through university. When he finally became a success, he dumped her for a trophy wife more than ten years younger than he was, leaving Marcy to raise their seven year old daughter by herself. Even though Marcy knows she is better off alone than with a cheating husband who doesn't love her, she is still struggling to make ends meet. When an ethical dilemma is presented to her however, she never realizes the karmic chain of events that will follow her decision... 

(By Trish)


Who believes in Karma?  I certainly do.  Absolutely believe that “What goes around comes around and that Karma really is a bitch”.  So make your choices wisely.

Marcy is hard up on luck.  After supporting her no good, cheating husband (Trent) through orthodontic school, he left her and their daughter because they had served their purpose for him.  What a dog.  And for a younger woman with money no less.  So selfish and arrogant.

Such a bad father, he doesn’t even accept his daughter in any way.  Doesn’t want anything to do with either of them.  Let alone pay any child care.

This leaves Marcy to fend for herself and raise her daughter on her own.  She doesn’t have much and works really hard to make the best of her situation.  Working at a Casino as a bar maid.  Hard work and long hours, but at least it’s a job.

Marcy really is a beautiful and courageous soul.  The fact that she is a voluptuous woman with all the right curves was so refreshing.  All Marcy really wants is the best for her daughter.  Making the most of what she has now and trying to make the right choices.

While working one night, she is faced with dilemma of finding a $100 bill and whether she should return it to the man that dropped it or put it in her pocket.  

She could really use that $100 bill…. But her conscious gets the better of her and she does the right thing and returns it – only to be surprised by the gentleman who tells her to keep it.  This one small honest gesture causes a chain reaction of events which has Marcy in disbelief.  It may just change her luck.

During the exchange, Andre Chevalier is watching from the bar.  Of course, how could Andre not be involved?  Just love this man.  So perceptive, understanding and wise about all things women, men and relationships.  Oh God, I want an Andre Chevalier.  Please Nikki – where do I find one?  He alone can make a girl feel like a real woman.

Did you know that with some I can tell the fortune?  I am observant, oui, particularly with women.  This is a little gift from the bon Dieu, comprenez vous?’

He notices what has occurred and starts a conversation with Marcy, only to offer her a job on his staff – all the while, having an ulterior motive and thinking about his head of security Mike and how wonderful Marcy would be for him.

Marcy is skeptical at first, but decides to take the plunge and trust Andre as she feels some connection to him and his charms.  The relationship they build is just wonderful.  Andre really is an angel for all that he does for Marcy.

When she meets Mike, the connection is instant.  From the moment Mike sees Marcy his heart skips a beat.  Could a second chance really be possible for both of them?  They are so natural and comfortable with each other.  

And OMG – Mike – what a sexy beast of a man he is.  Yes, he is.  I just adored Mike.  His story, his background and who he is today.  So understanding, patient and loving.  His hunger and lust for Marcy was to die for. 
“I can smell you, Marcy.”

The thought mortified her.  “You’re joking!”

“I can,” he said gruffly with on big hand possessively holding her nape.  You’re wet for me, slick and ready.  God, I want to taste you so badly.”

Will Marcy learn to trust again and find love with Mike? 

Will Mike be the man to heal Marcy’s heart and to be there for Marcy to lean on?  

Will Trent get what’s coming to him?

I absolutely loved this story of how good comes to good.  How you can change the path of your life by one small gesture and how karma will always be there – watching, waiting.

I loved, loved, loved the way Mike spoke to Marcy.  Deliciously sexy and with so much need.  It made me weak at the knees at times.  He was so sexy and strong and made Marcy feel like the Queen she should be.

“I want you so much,” he groaned against her mouth.  He pulled back from her, his dark eyes heavy-lidded and dilated with lust.  “Let me.  Right now.  Let me be inside you.  You know I belong there.  Can you feel it?”

The sex scenes were hot.  Mike was on fire, always wanting Marcy with a passion.  The feelings that were displayed between them were so intense.  Mike wanted her so bad.  Marcy wasn’t sure at first, which made the chase more exciting.  

I really did not want to put this book down.  I wanted to be Marcy at times. I wanted Mike to be taking to me.

I adored all of these characters (and if I could worship Andre Chevalier, I would).  Nikki’s characters are always so well developed and defined and individual.  I was glued to the pages and wanted more at the end.  Nikki makes everything so real and vivid.  Her characters are original, stunning, charming and so so natural.  The emotion, passion, anticipation and fun in this book was perfect.  

Nikki has a way of working everything in together so well.  Each side story was well done and she creates the sense of reality with the way she reveals the everyday small actions and reactions that we don’t consider each day.

Honestly, an exceptional and brilliant story full of truth and honesty, about doing the right thing, being true to yourself, and second chance romance. About loving yourself and loving another unconditionally no matter what your past has been.  There is always someone there for you.

Loved it Nikki. 

Nikki Sex writes sexy contemporary romance, often involving a bit of kink. She's a sucker for Happy Ever After endings, so no matter how dark my stories get, fear not! It always all works out in the end.
