Summary

I’ve always been the person that does whatever someone tells me I can’t.

Can’t graduate with a four-point-oh? Check. Can’t win a modeling contract without trying? Did it. Check. Can’t make it in the pro football league? Triple check with an MVP Award on top.

When my best friend told me to stay away from his little sister, Layla, it didn’t sound like a challenge. Then again, I’d never seen her before.

He obviously wasn’t thinking about who he was talking to if he believed I could ignore her. I obviously wasn’t thinking of him at all when I fell in love with her either. Fact of the matter is: I not only fell harder than a quarterback sack on a Sunday night game, but I did us one better. Kind of like that MVP award, only not so shiny. Sort of like my Player of the Year title, except the only thing I’m walking away with is an ex-best friend and a woman that hates my guts.

It’s okay. Just tell me I can’t win her back.

I’m Branch “Lucky” Best, and today’s my lucky day.

This is a standalone romance.

Lovely listen

Narrated by the talented team of Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross, Lucky Number Eleven is a delightful, fun story with plenty of charm and incident. The pace us really good and moves at a rate that maintains focus and interest. I really enjoyed the relationship between Branch and Layla. They were totally engaging as they worked their way through their unexpected romance.

Lucky for sure!

This is an awesome book that I enjoyed listening to. I definitely recommend this book because it will have you laughing out loud and crying the next. The author does a wonderful job at telling a story.
The narrator’s work really well together bringing this story to life. They are an amazing duet.

Empty calories.

The first half is just too thin and the rest is only carried by the usual brilliant work of Kennicott and Ross.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

I really enjoyed this book and these characters. Layla and Branch were such honest characters, I love how they both weren't perfect and made mistakes but were redeemed in the end. Branch was great, no matter how scared, confused or freaked out he was, he was honest and he really was a great guy. This whole book was fun and sweet and pretty sexy too. I actually didn't know this was part of a series but after finishing this one I will be looking into the others.

The narration was good. This is a duet narration and they did a great job.

Ready to get Lucky!

This was the perfect sweet and sexy listen! Even though I have previously read Lucky Number Eleven, listening to the audiobook took it to a whole new level! I am a huge fan of Adriana Locke's books and this one had all the witty banter and heart that I love so much. The chemistry between Branch and Layla was scorching and I loved all of their back and forth innuendo and ribbing. Even though the start of their involvement is based on lust and sexual attraction, their actual romance is gradual and organic. There is a bump in the road and the inevitable push and pull, but it works because these characters actually grow to care about each other and you're invested in their relationship. The secondary characters, especially Poppy, were such a fun treat. She has no filter and will tell you how it is, but at the same time she is supportive and fiercely loyal. I really hope that we get her (and Finn's) story one day.

Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross were fantastic as always and flow together so perfectly. They complement each other so well and are one of my very favorite narrating duos. Wen couldn't have performed Branch any better! You really don't want to miss your chance to get lucky!

My Two Pennies

Kai and Wen have knocked it out of the park with their narration duo, I love the passion and intensity they put into every story. This is a great sports romance story that will have you cheering Branch on throughout the story. Layla has had a past that she doesn’t want to repeat again and is cautious when it comes to dating anyone else now. We’re given twists and turns that will keep you on your toes and swooning at times too. Absolutely LOVED the ending that we were given, happy tears all the way.

Witty & Sexy Addictive Read!

Lucky Number Eleven is a sports romance that is sweet & sexy with tantalizing playful character's. Supporting character's are dynamic and accentuate the narrative. It is very well narrated as the climax in turmoil felt like real life. I absolutely love Layla and Branch. These two have strong chemistry, playful banter, witty & sexy times, with a bit of forbidden romance. A brother’s best friend/sports romance with a bit of a twist. I devoured this scrumptiously delicious novel.

Super sweet, sexy and funny!

Omg!! I loved this super sweet, sexy, funny read!!
Layla has had it with dating football players!! She still in a funk after her recent break up with Quarterback Callum Worthington after he was busted cheating on her. She decides a road trip to her family lake house with her bestie Poppy is exactly what she needs!!
She doesn't expect for her brother, Finn, to be there with his super hot friend and teammate Branch Best. Finn let Branch now right away that his sister is strictly off limits!!
After endless flirting between Layla and Branch for the last couple of days, Finn and Poppy end up leaving for a trip to town. One thing leads to another and things end up getting hot and heavy between Layla and Branch. Layla knows not to get attached because Branch was upfront about how he never gets in relationships because of the schedule involved with playing football. She can definitely handle having a weekend fling. Plus, she's over dating football players!! Things get crazy when Finn finds out amongst other surprises!! I loved this fast paced read!! I could get enough!! Branch Best is definitely the best!!
I received an early copy and voluntarily left my honest review.

* update. I already read and loved this and when I was offered a free copy of the audiobook I couldn’t wait to listen to it! The narrators did an awesome job and I loved it a second time around! I’m voluntarily leaving my honest review.

Duet narration! Love this style so much!

I love a good football romance, and Adriana Locke really scored with this one! It's flirty, funny, and super sexy yet still sweet. I adored the witty banter and great characters. The chemistry was off the charts- I loved Layla and Branch together. Lucky Number Eleven was a quick, fun read and although this is a standalone, I'd love to see more of these characters. Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott were great narrators and I was so pumped to see that the narration was done duet style- it's pretty rare but I am so glad the style is catching on and hope we see more of it. It adds so much to the experience.

Here's a quick definition of the two different styles of multiple character narrations.

Duet narration = narrators alternating reading the male and female parts in a chapter.
Dual narration = narrators reading entire POV chapters.
