Click the banner for a complete tour schedule


Blake Riley thought she could leave her traumatic past behind when she left for college. Starting a new life and moving forward never sounded so good. Living carefree with her best friend in Ocean City New Jersey gave her the freedom she had always hoped for.

But sometimes life isn’t so carefree.

When Blake finds herself torn between the affections of two men, emotions that have been buried for years will be exposed. Derrick, a powerful CEO of a popular casino resort, instantly captivates her. Being drawn into his domineering passion, she bares herself to him in a way she least expected. With Landon, a successful attorney, she can be someone new; someone free from her haunting past. Each man evokes a different side of Blake. As both relationships grow stronger, walls will slowly begin to crack.

What will happen when the past slowly creeps its way into the present?

With two worlds filled with secrets and lies, it’s only a matter of time before they crash and truths are revealed.

Luck of Love (Luck Series, #1)Luck of Love by Tiffany Aleman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Noooo! I don’t want it to end like that!!! BEWARE of cliffhanger!!!

Excuse me; Tiffany Aleman & Ashley Posh, You guys can’t end a book like that! It’s not good for people’s hearts. Mine is pounding so hard that I feel like I am going to start convulsing any minute.

Okay so let’s go back to the beginning…

In Luck of Love we meet Blake a bartender, going to school for advertising, in Ocean City, New Jersey. She is a spitfire and a bit of a fashionista.

“I maybe sarcastic, bitchy even, but I always look good doing it.”

She lives with her best friend Dean (hottie bestie- YUM!) above, Frankie’s Tavern, the bar that they work at. She has had to have a fake persona in order to not let people in. Only her two best friends Dean and Rachel truly know her. Too scared by her past, she is unwilling to let anyone else in. She doesn’t date, like AT. ALL!
But when this tall, dark, and handsome guy (Derrick) walks into the bar she works at, she is floored by how much she can’t seem to stop staring at him. That’s so not like her. It’s almost like she craves him. But she is determined NOT to act on it. Can she resist?
Derrick is equally attracted to Blake from the moment he sees her. He is determined to make her see that she can let go of her ugly past, and let him in. But fate decides to be a snarky bitch and puts a bit of roadblock along the way for Derrick and Blake.

Shortly after meeting Derrick, Blake meets Dean’s friend Landon. Landon is a 32 year old lawyer who hasn’t out grown the “party” mentality. He is not looking for anything serious, but there is something about Blake that fascinates him. He is sort of a jokester, very easy going. Blake is able to not be so uptight around him. She likes that she can be easy going when she is with him and not have to worry about all the baggage she is carrying.
Who would ultimately be the right person for Blake? Will it be Derrick the person that she finds herself slowly opening up to? Or will it be Landon the person who she can be someone completely different and not have to worry about the past at all?

“I’m going to do things to your body that nothing else will ever compare. When your body aches, I’ll be the only one to relieve the pain. When you’re starving, I’ll be the one to satisfy your appetite. And when you feel like you can’t breathe, I’ll be the oxygen you need.”
“And just so you know Blake, once you’ve had a taste of what I can offer you, your body will crave me like a drug addict craves their next hit.”

Is it hot in here or is it just me? Woooo! (Takes a moment to fan herself)

But when fate once again throws a major dodgeball into everyone’s plans, will the consequences be too much for two people to move past?

Soooo, the ending… Blake’s past and future collide and the outcome is a catastrophic mess that leaves you hanging by the edge of your seat. So good!

I absolutely LOVE romantic suspense stories. For this being the debut novel of the writing duo of Tiffany Aleman and Ashley Poch, it was such a good story line. I did feel like it was a bit slow in the beginning but somewhere around the middle it picks up and there is no putting it down. The sex scenes where steamy and oh so hot! One of the bet lines was “Arghhh!” I scream out as I feel the shredding of my innocence. Isn’t that a fantastic line?
I really enjoyed the different POV’s. We really get to experience the story through Blake’s, Derrick’s, Landon’s, even Dean’s eyes. You get a better sense of where their heads are at. Something I truly appreciate. I battled with Blake at times because I felt like she was being too harsh, but in the end I understood her motives. I am glad that we don’t have to wait too long for the second book in the series that is scheduled out for later this summer.
4 stars!

~About the Authors~
About Tiffany
I am 27 years old, with a wonderful family. My husband is in the Army, and we have two wonderful children. Ashley and I have been best friends since we were 13. I recently graduated from South University with my Associate's Degree as a Paralegal. I enjoy listening to music, playing with my kids, and going to the beach, and anything that has to do with the outdoors pretty much.
I've always liked to write, but never really had an interest in reading until the summer of 2012. I am so excited to be taking my writing journey with Ashley, and we cannot wait for everyone to get their hands on Luck of Love, which is the first installment in the Luck Series. I have many authors that I consider my favorite so I'll just name a few: E.L. James, SC Stephens, Molly McAdams, Rebecca Donovan, K.A Linde, Marie Coulson, and S.H. Kolee.
About Ashley
Ashley grew up in Texas but now has joined her husband to reside in North Dakota. She is a military wife and mother to two adorable children. She's always wanted to travel having grown up in a small town. Her interest in reading sparked last summer and now she's a lost cause without her e-reader. Since she loves to travel, the places she gets to go in her fictional books are what any girl could ask for.
When Ashley isn't glued to her computer you can find her outdoors either playing with her children or relaxing and enjoying the sun reading a good romance novel.
