What’s your lucky number?

Lyla Wilder is done being the shy, chemistry nerd extraordinaire. While every other college student is out having fun, Lyla is studying. With her cat. Well, she’s played it “safe” quite enough, thank you. So she creates a “College Bucket List”?with item #7 being a night of uninhibited, mind-blowing sex…

But she needs some help from her man-whore best friend.

Hockey player Beck Davenport thought Lyla’s transformation would be subtle. Man, was he wrong. With every item she ticks off, Beck finds himself growing seriously hot for his sweet, brainiac best friend. And if he’s not careful, he’ll end up risking their friendship in order to convince Lyla that he might just be her lucky #7…



"I laughed until I cried, and I swooned until I fell in love. With a hero who is a true hero and a heroine you'll want to be friends with, Cindi Madsen has written one of the best New Adult romances of the year."- Megan Erickson, author of the Bowler University series
Cindi Madsen's Lyla and Beck are witty, sweet and lovable. Getting Lucky Number Seven is one of the most refreshing and heartfelt New Adult romances that I've come across. Love it to pieces. - Lia Riley, Author of Upside Down
I laughed, I teared up, and there was definitely swooning involved. GETTING LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN had me reading late into the night, unable to put the book down. And sexy, hockey player Beck! Need I say more? - Stina Lindenblatt, author of Tell Me When

I really liked this, it was a combo of sweet and serious that never became over-dramatic or overly angsty. It did have some emotional angst but with the subject being friends to lovers, it's expected. I thought Beck was a great guy. He was so supportive and accepting of Lyla when almost everyone... ...more

4.5 stars! I really enjoyed this story! Lyla and Beck have been best friends ever since they met in a chemistry class. Beck is a popular hockey player who doesn't really do relationships and Lyla is a nerd who dresses in layers and covers herself up. After a night out with a sort of blind date wh... ...more

I couldn’t even talk to my best friend about the guy I was having sex with. Because, silly me, I’d gone and made them the same person.

Ya know, once again I’m plagued by the reviews stating this is the same old same old, there’s nothing new, it’s cliché, etc…and yet again I find this to be wro... ...more

4.5 Stars!

Getting Lucky Number Seven has me in stitches from the start. I laughed out loud and had a perma-grin. This was a very well written and well executed NA story of friends becoming lovers. Both the hero and heroine were endearing. I looked that neither had so many issues that it dragged d... ...more

~~4.5 HEARTS~~


Aww this was a great book. I really enjoyed it. Both the hero and heroine were very likable and the story just flowed easily. This is one that I would definitely 're-read'. I did want more though. It did feel like it just ended so suddenly. Overall a solid 4.5 stars. ...more

By Valerie April 30, 2015

Here's the thing, I read a lot and it's a new and wonderful thing when a book does something different. Yeah, I love those falling for your best-friend books. Who doesn't but it's almost always about one of the other who's been in love forever with the man/women whore other one. Something happens... ...more

I know it's not fair to compare two books but "Getting lucky number seven" reminds me a lot of "The Deal" by Elle Kennedy.
'The Deal' is a all around (nearly) perfect NA novel and a hard competition for every other book in this genre.

'Getting lucky number seven' is a sweet story about... ...more

This is the perfect friends to lovers story! Becks was everything there is to love about a sexy hunk of a hockey player who falls for his nerdy sweet friend.

By Maria Rose April 03, 2016

The classic romance trope of sexy athlete and shy nerdy girl is featured in this new adult romance. I loved both characters in the story - Beck is a playboy but a nice guy all around, and his friendship with Lyla is important to him. When she wants to stretch her boundaries by making a so-called... ...more

I've hit the jackpot lately and read some fantastic books. Oddly enough, every one of them has been in the New Adult genre, which doesn't always click with me since I'm almost 40 years old. This book delightfully fell into the unexpected surprise category. I can't recommend it enough or think of... ...more

A very sweet friends-with-benefits romance filled with humour and warmth.

Lyla and Beck (Beckett) became fast friends after working on a Chemistry Lab assignment together. Their lives were very different. Beck was a hockey star with many secrets and Lyla was an introverted study nerd who loves he... ...more

This was FANTASTICALLY delicious to read. I had a GREAT time with this one!

Lyla Wilder is our cute, funny, kinda nerdy, inexperienced heroine. Beck Davenport is Lyla's best friend and what could possibly turn out to be her Lucky #7 *wink wink* lol

OK, so Lyla is done being the shy one. The one n... ...more
