Title: Drawing Dead
Series: A Good Run of Bad Luck #1.5
Author: Giulia Lagomarsino
Genre: Small Town Romance
Release Date: September 6, 2021“If you have read any books by Giulia Lagomarsino, you know her characters are all zany and quite a bit crazy. That is one thing I love about her books.”
S&C’s Book Blog – “This may of been a short interlude to the next book, but I loved every second and isn’t to be missed.”
Goodreads Review – “I absolutely loved this book!!!”

For the past few years, I was drawing dead. Every hand that was dealt to me couldn’t possibly give me a win. But with every step I took to move past my anger and hatred, I felt myself healing, and that was largely due to the Cortell brothers. Like it or not, they helped me when I needed it the most. Every time they let me drag them down to the station, every ticket they took from me, gave me the strength to keep going. What kind of man would I be if I didn’t return the favor?

I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.


MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

Another great story involving the Cortell Brothers, add in a bit of Reed Security series and it’s a book that is hard to put down.

Jack is still hurting from the loss of his wife, and he is still blaming Josh Cortell, but his anger is being taken out on Josh’s brothers, and they have no problem letting him. It’s their way of showing him that they care about him and he will always be part of their family. It’s about time for Jack to start moving on or he is going to hurt his son with his hate, and Corduroy is not the first person to tell him this. When Josh and Carly run into some trouble, Jack is there for them and getting involved with the Cortell family again feels right. He won’t admit that to Corduroy though, he’s too stubborn for that.

When Josh and Carly hit a rough patch and need the family around them, the Cortell brothers are there, but they can’t get ahold of Derek and the brothers begin to worry. When no one can reach Antonio to tell them that Carly needs him, Jack decides to put his redemption skills to the test and offers to go find him.

I love this story and the characters are always fun to read. The things these characters get up to are so hilarious and these stories make me want to keep reading. I am now wanting more Reed security along with the Cortell brothers. These guys find themselves in the most interesting situations and work so hard to get out of them, but they only find themselves in deeper trouble and the shenanigans only get better. I love Ms. Lagomarsino’s characters, and I want more of her books. The men are over the top cautious and protective and the women are over the top crazy, defiant, and independent. When will these men ever learn that their women are smarter than them and will always find a way to fight back at the overprotective Alpha’s that they are? I give this story a 5-star review.
