The blurb does a very good job of describing what the story is about so I won't go on to repeat that. It's a cute read with some humor and funny scenarios thrown in. I found I really enjoyed it.
One of the things I really liked about the story is the fact Alli has such horrible luck. In general, he's always clumsy but on Fridays, everything always goes wrong to the point of almost getting killed multiple times. He's lonely but he doesn't want to subject anyone to his wayward magic so he pushes everyone away in hopes of not hurting others. He's sweet but socially awkward so even though he's polite, it's hard for him to make friends.
Michael is completely different. He bought a hunting cabin in Putman County where you can't even hunt but as a bear shifter, having his own land is what mattered most to him. Plus, getting out of the city and away from his family for a while had its merits. He's big, determined and patient. He knows he wants Alli and he'll do everything he can to prove to Alli that they'd be good together. Another thing I enjoyed was that he's a different kind of shifter. I haven't read many books about bear shifters so it was a treat getting to see Michael's bear side - who he named Bruce - be playful and connect just as much with Alli as Michael does.
Their time together is cute, it made me smile almost the whole time because of how clumsy Alli is and how much trouble he tended to get into. I loved the way Michael handled and accepted Alli when Alli revealed his true self with Michael. Some minor conflicts happen within the story - a little mystery, another suitor - where Michael gets protective and possessive of Alli. While they moved the story along, I felt like the main focus was of Alli's development and how he comes to terms with Michael and everything Michael makes him face.
All in all, this was a nice read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. We got to meet Michael's brothers which was very fun. This one left me with a smile on my face when I finished the book so I'm really looking forward to the next in the series, Tristan.
Fairy Allegro Romani is attempting to cross the street when, half way to the safety of the sidewalk on the other side, an out of control van is heading straight for Alli. Tackled and rolled out of harm's way, Alli is saved by a bear-shifter named Michael Lakkis. Lying with a dazed Alli beneath him, Michael comes to a decision to protect, as well as seduce, Alli in the very near future.
Lucky is a well written romantic comedy. The setting is Putman County, Wisconsin. The storyline is heartwarming, with a hint of turmoil and a dash of sensual lovemaking. The amusing characters are creditable. Banished from his fairies' home four years ago because he is gay, Alli knew the risk of living on earth, yet he had no other choice. Being a rare breed of fairies, Alli is resigned to living a lonely life. However, in a town filled with paranormals, Alli is merely accepted as the resident klutz. A shy, tongue-tied, hide-in-the-corner florist, Alli's out of control magic is capable of producing more disaster than a nuclear bomb. On the other hand, Alli's magic works wonders on plants, making Alli's floral business a real benefit to the community.
Michael is a small, compact, mild-mannered bear shifter who moved into a cabin outside of town so his bear side could enjoy the open spaces of nature. Michael's sunny disposition charms most of the residents, once they realize Michael is sincere about his feelings for Alli as well as determined to protect the loveable fairy. Another reason Michael chose to move is to get away from his very loving, over bearing family. Michael has two older brothers that feel it is their duty to monitor Michael via phone calls on a daily basis, in addition to meeting any potentially serious love interest Michael may have. K. M. Mahoney has created a fantastic, humorous and especially enjoyable saga.
