Karlyn Bowman was a rebel in her family, choosing not to climb the corporate ladder in order to pursue her love of art. Lonely, ostracized by the family who should have loved her, she pushed forward trying to become a success. When her friend gives her a lottery ticket to cheer her up, she puts it aside and forgets it. Imagine her surprise when the knock came to her door and her life—and his—were changed forever.
Ahh to be sent into the future and still have hot, steamy and completely erotic studs at your disposal! Now THAT’S what I’m talking about!! Ms. O’Hurley captivated my attention in the very first few pages of her erotic romance The Lottery. Starting out the book in just the right fashion, drooling over Ethan Spears (RAWR), was a helluva attention getter. A hundred or so years into the future you are sucked into the plot. The author does such a great job at striking the attention of the reader with every single emotion, every thought and you can’t help but fall in love with Karlyn and Ethan.
Karlyn’s a struggling artist trying to prove herself in a world dominated by very successful females, her best friend Sam sees how lonely Karlyn is and buys her a gift - a very delectable man named Ethan.
Ethan, as a “used and abused” male in the new world where women outnumber the men by 30-1, is a high commodity. With his sexy emerald eyes, very lick able body and the sense of there is more to him than meets the eye, he will definitely have you “begging” for more with every single turn of the page. Being somewhat ostracized from his family, or better yet from what family he has left, he has no other choice but to enter into these “contracts” to make sure his sister is taken care of.
I don’t want to give away the entire plot of the story. There were a few errors I found while reading such as grammatical errors and a few words missing that would have made the sentences flow better. Other than that, Ms. O’Hurley plunged right in and didn’t let up while navigating the reader through The Lottery. The story seemed to have moved at a quick pace but at a rate that was still able to follow and understand what was going on. The Lottery is a definite must read. You will not be disappointed as you can literally feel each character.
Side note…you will need a box of tissues at the ready with a few of the scenes.
We highly recommend reading it.
