So Damn Lucky by Deborah Coonts

Book Description:
Lucky O’Toole—Head of Customer Relations at The Babylon, premier mega-resort on the Vegas Strip—thinks it’s just another night in Las Vegas. But then a magician pulls a disappearing act, right under Lucky’s nose. Is it a stunt? Or something worse?
While Lucky chases leads, someone is trying to put her off the scent. As if this wasn’t enough to ruin her day, Lucky’s relationship with The Big Boss is coming to a head—past hurts can no longer be denied. Of course, she is already on shaky emotional ground: Teddie, her live-in, has been touring with a young and lovely pop star. Paxton Dane, former coworker and would-be suitor, is still circling, hoping to find a chink in the armor of Lucky’s resolve. And then, there’s this French chef, who is proving to be too hot to handle….
Las Vegas expert Deborah Coonts thrills again with this third installment in her dazzling series focused on casino “fixer” Lucky O’Toole.

My Thoughts:
I always enjoy Lucky!  This is the 3rd in the Lucky O'Toole series.  Vegas is hot and active as always.  Lucky has been invited to an event she would have never believed she would be.  A magician disappears, there are some 'over-sexed' guests, her boyfriend is touring with a hottie.  She is attracted to two different men within the casino and hotel.  She and the big boss have issues to deal with....all in all, Lucky is too busy for more mysteries to solve, only they don't seem to care about her personal issues!
Lucky is a character that never gets old.  Her life itself is a great story.  Her boyfriend the cross dresser, her mother the madam, her father the big boss--we get designer clothes, hot guys, entertaining work, what more can a girl want?  I enjoyed this ride and the author did a great job of not letting the Lucky character get outlandish or boring, she was just as 'Lucky' as in book one!  I enjoyed the new characters and hope there are some of them in future books.
I rate this a 4/5.  It was good and entertaining.
