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 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

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

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

Getting Lucky Number Seven is my favorite kind of new adult contemporary romance. I love the flirty nature of the friends to something more trope, I love the URST, I love nerdy humor, and I love a good college b... ...more
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.
Lyla Wilder is your typical nerd. Even though she dresses like a hippie art... ...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
I have a soft spot for hockey romances, and here is a Lyla quote:
"I prefer guys with scars and imminent teeth loss in their future"
That's exactly how I feel ;-) ...more

This book was amazing! Review to follow
Getting Lucky Number Seven is the best book I've read this year. Sorry to everyone out there who've been hoping that I might say that of their books, but this one just made me have all the happy warm feels in the world.
I loved the whole friends to lover... ...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
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
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
This was another great book by Cindi Madsen. I just love her books and writing style and I can always count on her books to bring a smile to my face.
Like most of her books, this book was funny, romantic, fast paced and steamy but never over the top. It also has some realistic feel to it.
The book... ...more
I freaking loved this book I loved Beck he was a book man, "telling myself I shouldn’t be staring at Lyla’s boobs wasn’t working as well as it should’ve, the same way it hadn’t when she’d first gotten in my car tonight." Lyla I loved her some of the things out of that girl's mouth and how open sh... ...more
