The third story is Jason Corwin and Lauren Perkin's story. That's right...a Corwin and a Perkin's together!!!! Jason Corwin's life is falling apart. He was training for the Olympics in snowboarding when he failed his drug test. Jason had never taken drugs and realized he was set up by the girl he was dating. Turns out she was actually with Jason's biggest competition and they set him up. Now back in Stewart, MA, Jason opened up his own construction company and trying to stay out of the limelight. Lauren Perkin's is in town to fix up her Aunt Mary's house to sell it and then she's off to Paris because her designs are finally being shown on the runway! She is also trying to help her sister, Beth, who is in a psych ward because of the fire she created last year. The last thing she wants is to run into Jason. She hasn't seen him since they were teenagers and had shared a wonderful summer together up until her Aunt sent her away....but it would be fun to see him from a distance. When Clara, Uncle Edward's girlfriend reads Jason's tarot cards, she tells him that a lady with a red mask is going to rock his world. Imagine his surprise when he sees Lauren Perkins' at the fall festival, in a red mask! When Lauren approaches him, she doesn't tell him who she is and he plays along. I loved when they snuck off together to the barn.....that was fun. When Jason helps his cause to be the person to fix up her Aunt's house, Lauren isn't happy but finally accepts...with the promise that it is all business. Of course that didn't last too long! ;) As they work on the house, strange things keep happening causing Lauren to need Jason even more. Together Lauren and Jason work to figure out who is causing all of their problems and end up with a big surprise. I enjoyed the way these two worked through their problems to finally get to their happy ending. I loved what happened regarding the curse too! Overall it made for a fun, crazy, suspenseful story.

This is the third book in the Lucky series and my favorite book. I rated each book a 5 but if i could I would have rated this one higher. Jason Corwin was an Olympic bound snowboarder who is back in town because he has been accused of using illegal drugs so he can't be in the Olympics. Lauren Perkins, a dress designer, is back in town fixing up her late grandmother's house to sell. She needs the money to help her with her sister Mary Elizabeth Perkins' defense. Elizabeth is in a mental hospital (if you read Lucky Streak you will know why) and Lauren wants to help her. This is not only Jason and Lauren's story but all the Corwin's story. This book is so inspirational, the way it talks about mental health. Book Order Lucky Charm Lucky Streak Lucky Break This is a great series! (This is re-realease).
Lucky Break, the third book in Carly Phillips Lucky series trilogy, and is another second chance love story. This is Jason Corwin and Lauren Perkins’ story. According to family history, the curse was put in place by a Perkins from long, long ago. While the younger generation is starting to question the curse, the older generation is unwilling to be convinced otherwise. After Jason and Lauren reconnect, the good old boys will do whatever they can to stop the relationship from happening. But Jason is determined to show them that while Lauren may be a Perkins but she has nothing to do with the curse. She and Jason just want to have their chance at love. While in town, Lauren just wants to sell her deceased grandmother’s house and take care of her sister, who is in a prison psychiatric hospital. The doctors are saying she is in a comatose state, but all is not what it seems. After finding an old diary in the house they are fixing up, Jason and Lauren work together to solve the mystery of the curse. Will they figure out the mystery and solve the curse or will the curse continue for future generations? Will they be able to tie up all the other loose ends too? You need to read and find out. Ms. Phillips is a wonderful storyteller which she demonstrated in this story. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting it down. This is a great book with plenty of romance and suspense, as well. I recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
