People say not to believe the things you read in magazines, but you know what? Most things you’ve heard about me are probably true. 

I totally banged the reporter in the locker room after the championship game last year. 

Those pictures in Expose from last summer? Those were not modified. 

I’m also not really six-foot tall. (But let’s keep that between us.) 

Now, I know you’re wondering about that last Expose headline—the one about me and my teammate (and ex-best friend) Finn Miller’s sister, Layla James. That one is a little more complicated. 

Here’s the thing: I’ve played football my whole life. If there’s one thing I know, it’s how to adjust when the game changes. And if there’s one thing I always do, it’s find a way to win. 

Granted, the stakes are higher. The playbook has changed. There’s more on the line than (another) MVP title. But guess what hasn’t changed? Me. I’m still Branch “Lucky” Best and I’m not about to fumble this one. 

Grab a seat and a subscription to Expose. I’m about to make some headlines. (Again.) 

A sexy, swoon-filled standalone novel. 


“One question,” Poppy interjects, looking at Branch. “What position are you?” 
“I typically like the bottom so I can watch—oomph,” he says, getting another elbow from Finn. “Wide receiver. Why?” 
Looking at Poppy, I can’t help but laugh as her eyes light up. 
“You got a problem with wide receivers?” Branch asks. 
“You do,” Finn interjects, giving me a narrowed glare. “They aren’t any better than quarterbacks.” 
Branch looks from me, to Finn, and back to me. “Why do we not like quarterbacks?” 
“My sister was dating Callum Worthington.” 
“No shit?” His face puckers like he just bit into a lemon. “How in the hell did that cocksucker end up with you?” 
“He didn’t. We’re not together anymore.” 
Branch’s eyes heat, the look causing my pulse to quicken. “I’m not a bit sorry to hear that.” 
“You better forget you heard any of that,” Finn warns. “This is my sister, Branch. Not a cheerleader or reporter or some chick from a dating app. Got it?” 
“Finn, relax,” I say, shoving a swallow past the lump in my throat. “I appreciate the big brother spiel, but I can handle myself.” 
“I know you can,” he says, pulling his gaze away from Branch. “But you can’t handle him.” 

4.5 stars for Lucky Number Eleven! 

When I heard about this book I was excited, I love Adriana Locke’s books and I love a good sports romance so both of those together sounded perfect. 

I was not disappointed. Lucky Number Eleven was a great read! It was the perfect combination of sexy and sweet and included all the funny banter that I have loved in Adriana Locke’s past books. 
I loved Branch and Layla together, their chemistry flew off the page and I was hooked from the very first page. There is no rush with their romance, I thought it grew at a perfect pace. There are some road bumps and obstacles they have to face but ultimately their relationship grows stronger because of them and you see them grow as people because of these obstacles. These two care so deeply about each other. The banter between Branch and Layla had me laughing out loud and smiling while I was reading. I really loved it. 

The secondary characters in this book make it even better, they don’t just sit in the background and have no purpose. They were great characters in their own right. I really loved Poppy, Layla’s best friend. I thought she reminded me of my own best friend and that made it even better for me. 

I really loved this book and I would highly recommend it!
