What's your lucky number? 

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

Getting Lucky Number Seven, by Cindi Madsen, was such a fantastic reading escape! I was really excited to read this book from the moment I saw it floating around my social media news feed. I read a lot of NA books and I needed one that was different. I wanted to enjoy a NA book that did not leave me emotionally drained. GLNS was a breath of fresh air that kept me glued to my seat from beginning to end!

I had a blast following Lyla on her journey. When she started writing a list of stuff she wanted to do to step out of her comfort zone, she had no idea that she would end up falling for her best friend. Beck as always been there for her since they met, but she never felt for him what she's feeling  now. When Beck takes a look at Lyla's list, he makes it his mission to help her out. What he did not know is that item number seven on the list would turn his world upside down. Beck knows that he's the person that could rock her world and he spends every moment showing Lyla what she's been missing. He can handle no strings attached, one-night stands and all the jazz that comes with his man-whore reputation, but what he can't handle is getting too close to Lyla. Every moment spent with her is fantastic, but the demons of his past have a way of making him take a step back from Lyla. Will he be able to forget about the past and give his relationship with Lyla a chance?

The blurb of this book does a pretty good job at describing Lyla and Beck's story. Shy girl falls for her hot and sexy best friend. Even if the storyline was predictable what made this book a fantastic read is that Lyla and Beck stole the show. From the first chapter to the last you won't be able to not fall in love with them! They have an incredible chemistry and their friendship is absolutely beautiful!!! This book was fun and sexy! Lyla and Beck are exactly the kind of friends I would hang out with. You could feel the strong bond that they had. What I loved about them is that I saw them slowly falling in love with each other. Their movie nights, the cute text conversations everything about the way they were around each other put a smile on my face and butterflies in my stomach!

Overall, this was a sexy, fun and captivating reading escape that I highly recommend! I love Lyla and Beck to pieces!! What I loved the most about this book is that it was light on drama and heavy on the romance. For most of the book you see Lyla and Beck in "friendship mode" and that was awesome! I don't think the flow of the story would have been the same if I would not have seen them around each other like that. Sexy times came later, but they totally have chemistry that will leave you wanting more! Fantastic work by Cindi Madsen!!


I give Getting Lucky Number Seven, by Cindi Madsen, 4 swoony, flirtatious, best-friends-turn-to-lovers stars!

About the Author:
Cindi Madsen is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.


  1. I love it that 'I can't not fall in love with them'. It sounds fun.

  2. Yes. This is a NA that doesn't drain you emotionally. Love it. Glad you enjoyed too.
