Getting Lucky by Thea Dawson


A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do … And sometimes, a girl’s got to sneak away from her own wedding to get out of an arranged marriage to a mobster.

You know how these things go.

Mafia kids don’t always get to choose, but Lucky Castellano just can’t bring herself to marry the son of her father’s rival, even if it means peace between the families. Ditching her groom at the altar, she hides in a van and wakes up in a small town in the middle of nowhere. With nothing to her name but a designer wedding dress, a tube of Chanel lipstick, and a whole lot of Sicilian attitude, she sets out to reinvent herself—and the driver who unwittingly saved her from a loveless marriage.

Anthony quit a promising career as a musician to raise his younger siblings after their parents died. When a woman in a wedding dress falls out of the back of his van and into his arms, his quiet life is turned upside down. And when Lucky appoints herself his manager and starts getting him gigs, he begins to dream of stardom again… and starts to fall for the brash runaway bride.

But the mob has a long memory, and their relationship is put to the test when Lucky’s groom shows up looking for her. Soon, she and Anthony may have to choose between love and stardom… and maybe just staying alive.
