Publisher Comments:

If love is in the cards, then somebody stacked the deck.

 

Los Angeles radio DJ Beryl “Berry” Lambert, whose name means luck, doesn’t much believe in it—although, thanks to her dear old gambling dad, she’s a bit superstitious, certain that everything happens for a reason. She keeps a four-leaf clover in her wallet, never takes off her horseshoe necklace, and won’t tempt fate by walking under a ladder or opening an umbrella indoors. Ever.

When it comes to love, though, she could use a little luck. Two disastrous relationships back-to-back can mean only one thing to a woman who knows that everything good or bad happens in threes: A third Mr. Wrong is imminent. But fellow DJ Ryan Riley goes against the odds. Their on-air battle of the sexes is a hit for the station and sparks some serious heat after hours. Ryan is funny and sexy, and he thinks Berry’s quirkiness is cute. Is their romance doomed by the numbers—or is a girl who leaves nothing to chance finally ready to gamble?

Caprice Crane’s witty, winsome novel about the game of modern romance proves that with a little luck and the right stakes, everybody wins.

Review:

"Berry, the spunky if superstition-addled radio DJ heroine of Crane's breezy latest, has long played it safe, but when she tests her luck with Ryan, the station's 'Dr. Love,' he wins her heart and a shared morning radio program with the oddball Berry. Turning their romantic chemistry into boffo ratings, the pair run into some predictable trouble when Ryan airs one of Berry's more inscrutable quirks — her fear of William Shatner — in an attempt at 'good radio.' The move enrages Berry, who marches out of his life and the show and into some scary reflection on her fears. Crane (Stupid and Contagious) handles this ditzy romance with confidence, delivering a snappy girl-meets-boy-loses-boy-and-gets-him-back. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
