What's your lucky number?

Lyla Wilder is done being the shy, chemistry nerd extraordinaire. While every other college student it 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...

Review by: Tatia 

Some of my favorite stories are the ones with a couple who are friends turned lovers. We get that in Getting Lucky NumberSeven.
Lyla is a chemistry nerd. She hides herself in loose clothes and her face behind a book. She's always studying, making sure to keep her grades as high as possible. You could say she's lead quite the sheltered life, only ever having one serious boyfriend. But she's ready to break free and experience life a little more. Thankfully, she's got the best friend to help her along the way.
Beck is one of the captains of the hockey team. He's got that going for him along with his devastatingly handsome good looks and his charm. He's never had a problem getting girls or anything else for that matter. He keeps himself pretty closed off to just about everyone. Only two girls have ever gotten inside of his walls and truly gotten to know who Beck really is, what makes him tick. One is his best friend. Only, what happens when he starts seeing her in a not so friendly way?
The way Cindi Madsen tells this story has you immediately falling in love with both characters. I loved how they came from totally different "cliques" and backgrounds. They're so different in their looks that you would never picture them to be best friends. Seeing how comfortable they were with each other, how Kyla could tell her nerd jokes and Beck could open up and relax with her, made you hope that things would progress on their own. These two are so much alike personality wise that they'd be crazy not to try for more. But fear of ruining something great and neither of them wanting a relationship has them hesitating.
Being completely captivated with this story and characters inside, I read this book way too quickly. Not realizing I was already upon the end, I immediately wished that there was a second book for me to pick up and continue on the journey that is Kyla and Beck. Getting Lucky Number Seven easily became one of my favorite books of the year. Sweet and spicy with a little bit of light drama thrown in, you won't be disappointed with Cindi Madsen's latest story.

Review by: Erin 

This is a humorous read with bits of drama interlaced throughout. Lyla is determined to change herself during her first year of college. She is tired of being looked at as the plain, boring girl. She enlists the help of her hockey star best friend, Beck. She makes a bucket list and with his help is going to cross these things off her list. 
Lyla goes through a period of self discovery. She learns that there is nothing wrong with her. She likes the person she is, nerd and all. And if other people don’t like her, it is their loss. There were parts of this story that made me laugh till I cried. Beck also goes through a little self discovery of his own. He decides to live for himself and not others. He likes Lyla just like she is and is a little heartbroken when she decides to change herself to be good enough for other people. 
Is it possible that he has been her Lucky Number Seven all along?

Review by: Fidah

  Getting Lucky Number Seven be Cindi Madsen is my first read, but I can assure you that it won't be my last. The storyline isn't that original because there have been other books with a similar idea where the female lead is kind of a recluse and gets help from her popular best friend. I'm not gonna lie, the story can get a little predictable. But what made this book were the characters and their relationship.

Lyla and Beck's relationship didn't form a spark right off the bat which I really enjoyed. I mean, sure, there were moments where they felt something but neither of them thought much of it. It caused a smoother progress and development in their relationship. I thought nothing felt weird or out of place. The transition from best friends to lovers in the story was rather pleasing to read. Of course, there were other relationships in the book that made the book whether it be friendship or familial. But the relationship between the two were the focus.

A fun and entertaining contemporary romance filled with humour and steamy build ups. At the end of it all, a well crafted story that was light and easy.
