Lucky’s Choice (Last Riders #7) by Jamie Begley

What it’s about
Life dealt him a
dead man’s hand.

Lucky had always led a life of service. Always put his life on the line for someone
else, managing to survive by pure luck and skill. After bringing an end to a
multi-state drug ring, he was finally able to live the life he had wanted as a
Last Rider…

A good man would walk away and not touch the curvy woman who had been tugging on
his heartstrings. Lucky wasn’t a good man. Therefore, the bad-ass biker in him
had a choice: once again become the man he had pretended to be and stake his
claim, or take the devil’s highway.

Some girls had all the luck.

Willa wasn’t one of them. All she wanted to do was give a home to the children
she had made orphans. Instead, she found herself needing help from the man who
had left the pulpit behind to embrace a life of sin.

Painfully shy and withdrawn she wanted a quiet life, a simple man, and well-behaved
children. The last thing she had ever expected was for Lucky to want her size
twenty body and show her a passion that would lead her straight to hell.

Steffi’s  Review
3.5 not so
Lucky stars
I feel like I
have to include a foreword to my review at this point, a disclaimer if you
will. Jamie Begley made me a fan of biker romances. To me, a Jamie Begley book
is the equivalent of a teenager’s One Direction concert. It’s my guilty
pleasure and I drop everything when she releases a new book. Her Last Riders
series is my absolute favourite, even though I am a massive fan of the Biker
Bitches as well. You see where I’m going with this. 
Every book in
this series has been a winner with me. I thought Shade’s Fall would be impossible to top and while it remains my
favourite, Cash didn’t fall behind in book 5. The story of Lucky and Willa has
been built up for several books and I have anticipated it since the beginning.
Everyone knows Willa is in love with Lucky, but between dating Beth, being an
undercover pastor/special agent/man-ho and returning to his job as a VP of the
club, Lucky’s been quite busy….also with other women. If you’ve read a book
from the Last Riders series before, you’ll know what Friday night parties mean
and they are always exciting!
Willa couldn’t
be farther from the women that frequent the club but she is the most
good-hearted, warm and loving person Lucky has ever met, even if she is a bit
of a pushover. These two have definite chemistry but one is too shy to make a move
and the other is a badass biker who resists his feelings and prefers slutty
neighbors. Also, Lucky faces some difficult personal issues, being torn between
his love for the church and the life as a biker. He can’t combine the two but
choosing makes him miserable. 

The constant bible quotes in this book started to
get a bit annoying and distracting after a while, so I skipped over them. I
loved seeing how Willa came into her own and starting taking charge of her life
and standing up for herself. There is definitely a lot more to her than
everyone thought. 

My issue with Lucky’s
Choice
did not lie with the characters (ok, maybe a bit with Lucky) or the
plot, but the storytelling. I felt as if I was reading two different books. The
beginning was rather slow and showed how Lucky was struggling with his feelings
for Willa but they seemed to slowly get closer. Still, there was no indication
for a relationship at this point. Then, out of the blue, one incident changes the
whole story and the two are suddenly married. It was very abrupt, without
context or development. I thought the development of their relationship was non-existent
and badly handled. It was hard to get back into the book, to follow the romance
and reconnect with the characters as we were missing a vital part of their
relationship.

Nevertheless,
the Last Riders remain my favourite MC club and I can’t wait for the next book
in the series. I fervently hope we will get Train’s story soon and I would also
love to read about Ginny. Maybe there is a brother for her as well? I can’t
wait to find out!
