Allie Laurel Gray never wins anything. That’s why she’s shocked when a police officer returns with a winning raffle ticket to have lunch with baseball player Anthony Green and actors Mark Dubois and Beau Aikin. The prize includes a night at a hotel and since Allie’s apartment is being fumigated—again!—she agrees to go. Besides, who wouldn’t want to have lunch with three beautiful men?
Overwhelmed and a bit intimidated by the guys, Allie tries to keep a low profile. But Mark DuBois will not let her slip by unnoticed—in fact, he notices everything about her and Allie is quickly charmed by his gentle kindness.
Luck, especially Allie’s luck, can’t hold on forever and she’s soon forced to make a choice between her heart and saving Mark’s reputation so he can gain custody of his daughter.
Winning the lottery was easy compared to winning at love

My Rating: 4 stars
I had so much fun with It Could Happen To Us. It’s a light-hearted, charming romance that brings two people from different walks of life together at just the right moment for each.
Allie usually has the worst luck, but this time she’s won part of a prize from a raffle ticket that a customer promised as a tip for her waitress job. The guy might turn out to be a tad bit obnoxious but she did get to meet a few famous guys. One who seemed far more down to earth than she ever expected an action film actor to be. Maybe her luck was turning around.
Mark is charmed by Allie, the first woman he’s met in a long while that doesn’t seem to be working some angle. He makes a few mistakes around Allie, but he fixes them as quickly as possible. This woman touches him in a way he thought impossible to feel… for real. Now, if only other parts of his life were less complicated.
It Could Happen To Us is a short, fun romance with several secondary characters we’ll run into again later in this series. If you’re in the mood for a romance that will make you smile and warm your heart then I’d recommend this one and the entire series.
