Tour: Review and Giveaway: Third Time Lucky by Pippa Croft

'It's Sister Dixon from the Royal Infirmary here. I'm sorry to tell you that Captain Hunt has been involved a serious incident.'

Lauren Cusack should be on her way home for an holiday in Washington before her final term at Wyckham College, Oxford. But this call changes everything. Her relationship with impossibly handsome aristocrat Alexander Hunt has been turbulent and Lauren knows she needs to walk away. Yet now as she rushes to his side she knows she will be inevitably sucked back into his world.

And sure enough, Alexander - even a seriously injured Alexander - is an intoxicating cocktail Lauren cannot resist and despite everything that is sent to thwart them - and with Alexander there is drama at every turn - she finds herself happier than she's ever been.

But as her final term races by, and she is offered the perfect job back in Washington, the impossibility of their romance hits home.

Can there be a future for Alexander and Lauren?

5 Words: Passion, lust, love, conflict, family.

I have read all of the books in this series and I'm glad I have. As much as each of these books can be read as a standalone, you really get a better feel of the situation if you read all three. And you can experience all of the drama, passion, attraction and plotting.

I couldn't get enough of Lauren and Alexander. They're like an addiction, but also a little like that pile up on the motorway that you can't help but sneak a peek at as you pass.

This series has one of my absolute favourite love-to-hate characters. Valentina is one evil twisted bitch. I actually get angry when I'm reading about her. And I love that. I love that this book makes me feel so I angry I start to shake, that one character can provoke that within me.

The scene has been set in The First Time We Met, the passion builds in The Second Time I Saw You and everything comes to a fantastic climax in Third Time Lucky.

This is a series I will certainly read again. I loved it. It was fun and flirty and filled with passion, but it still touches upon serious issues and makes you think. And it even has a gorgeous set of covers, I could stare at them all day.
