Title: Lucky Number Eleven
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Sports Romance
Release Date: September 7, 2017
People say not to believe the things you read in magazines, but you know what? Most things youâve heard about me are probably true.
I totally banged the reporter in the locker room after the championship game last year.
Those pictures in Expose from last summer? Those were not modified.
Iâm also not really six-foot tall. (But letâs keep that between us.)
Now, I know youâre wondering about that last Expose headlineâthe one about me and my teammate (and ex-best friend) Finn Millerâs sister, Layla James. That one is a little more complicated.
Hereâs the thing: Iâve played football my whole life. If thereâs one thing I know, itâs how to adjust when the game changes. And if thereâs one thing I always do, itâs find a way to win.
Granted, the stakes are higher. The playbook has changed. Thereâs more on the line than (another) MVP title. But guess what hasnât changed? Me. Iâm still Branch âLuckyâ Best and Iâm not about to fumble this one.
Grab a seat and a subscription to Expose. Iâm about to make some headlines. (Again.)
A sexy, swoon-filled standalone novel.

âOne question,â Poppy interjects, looking at Branch. âWhat position are you?â
âI typically like the bottom so I can watchâoomph,â he says, getting another elbow from Finn. âWide receiver. Why?â
Looking at Poppy, I canât help but laugh as her eyes light up.
âYou got a problem with wide receivers?â Branch asks.
âYou do,â Finn interjects, giving me a narrowed glare. âThey arenât any better than quarterbacks.â
Branch looks from me, to Finn, and back to me. âWhy do we not like quarterbacks?â
âMy sister was dating Callum Worthington.â
âNo shit?â His face puckers like he just bit into a lemon. âHow in the hell did that cocksucker end up with you?â
âHe didnât. Weâre not together anymore.â
Branchâs eyes heat, the look causing my pulse to quicken. âIâm not a bit sorry to hear that.â
âYou better forget you heard any of that,â Finn warns. âThis is my sister, Branch. Not a cheerleader or reporter or some chick from a dating app. Got it?â
âFinn, relax,â I say, shoving a swallow past the lump in my throat. âI appreciate the big brother spiel, but I can handle myself.â
âI know you can,â he says, pulling his gaze away from Branch. âBut you canât handle him.â

Thatâs what they call me. My label ate it up until I became âtoo badâ for the good folks of country music. Thatâs when Hard Candy Records picked me up and took a chance on me.

âClimb gates around here often?â he asked, no censure in his voice. I realized he spoke English as fluently as he spoke Spanish.
He was clad in navy basketball shorts, a pair of Nike running shoes and he was just sweaty enough for me to realize heâd likely been working out. I swear I was hypnotized by all of his exposed skin, so much so that I could just about remember my own name at that moment. Iâd have blamed the fall for my dazed and confused frame of mind but that wasnât it at all. It was purely because of himâthe sexy Spanish-speaking god whoâd saved me from certain harm. My eyes trailed along his muscular but lean body hungrily as I catalogued just how ridiculously gorgeous he was. I was hypnotized by his six-pack and the set of V-cut muscles I had an insane urge to trail my fingers over.
Iâd have kept right on staring had he not cleared his throat. I cringed as I came back to reality and realized heâd asked a question I hadnât retained.
âUm, huh?â I asked, perfectly clueless.
âI was asking if youâre a professional gate climber,â he said huskily.
âSheâs really fine after a fall from that height?â the officer asked as he came through the gate.
âShe never hit the ground,â my savior said, âsince I caught her.â
The cop looked almost as impressed as I felt. Iâd have heaped praised onto the stranger who saved me had I not remembered that I needed to be focused on a more pressing concern.
âSo now that Iâm on this side I really need to get myââ
The officer pinned me with a look that left no doubt that he was in charge. âMiss, please remain silent while I work out whatâs going on here.â
I pursed my lips and tried to contain my annoyance. I knew he was just doing his job but all I cared about was finding Elvis.
The officer turned back to the Spanish modelâI naturally assumed he modeled because he looked like he belonged in sensual looking black and white ads for menâs cologne. You know the kind of ads Iâm talking about, right? Thereâs always a sexy guy giving you the letâs have all the sex look with a set of eyes that are clearly attempting to hypnotize you into buying something.
He was at least six feet tall and had a head full of thick, dark hair. His face was perfectly proportioned from forehead to chin, and I could find nothing that didn't appear to be symmetrical. He had a ridiculously sexy closely trimmed beard that I wanted to trace with my fingers and his jaw was the sexiest thing Iâd ever seen. I turned crimson when my eyes trailed up and met his and I realized he was observing meâwhich meant he knew Iâd been staring at him. Again.
I bit my lip and tried not to blush as I blinked like an idiot. I was relieved to have a reason to look to the police officer when he cleared his throat to get our attention. âAre you the one who called about the disturbance down the side of the house?â he asked.
I couldnât resist the urge to let my eyes wander back to the Spanish god. I knew just enough Spanish to determine that if his looks were rated on the salsa scale heâd be called el mÃ¡s caliente.
His eyes were on me as he answered the cop. âMy brother called, yes.â
âWhatâs your name, sir?â
Even his name was sexy. My skin felt hot and prickly under his gaze. Anxious for a reprieve, I looked back to the officer.
The cop nodded as he took note of it on his pad. âAnd your brother's name?â
âAnd you?â the cop asked with a head nod toward me.
âCan you spell that?â
âK-a-y-a,â I answered.
âThatâs a weird name,â the officer said as he wrote it down.
I wasn't sure if he was being rude or not so I shrugged and said nothing. Alejandro growled something under his breath that I couldnât understand. A shiver went down my back at the way the words rolled off his tongue. His Spanish accent fascinated me. Iâd never been one to care one way or the other about a manâs voice, but his did things to me. I wondered if audio erotica was a thing. If it were, I would pay a subscription fee to hear him talk all day.
âSo were you trying to escape or get in?â the officer asked, ruining my good fantasy about an Alejandro Cruz dirty talk subscription service.
âI was trying to get in,â I answered stiffly, annoyed that the officer had already forgotten everything Iâd said, âI told youââ
âNo, no, she is not the disturbance,â Alejandro interjected. âMy brother thought someone was trying to steal God only knows what from the exterior of the house. He was asleep and heard something outside his bedroom window and panicked. He shouldnât have called the policeâitâs animal control that we need. Some dickhead bird went through the trash that my brother forgot to secure and heâs been leading him on one hell of a chase around the yard.â
My eyes narrowed and my hands went to my hips as I stared down the model. âDonât talk about my little buddy like that,â I snapped.

At the heart of Because of Him is a love story. But due to certain sensitive topics, it might not be suitable for all readers.
Excerpt:She glanced down, allowing her hair to create a wall between us. “You don’t even know me," she said. “I know you keep one side of your hair tucked behind your ear to reveal a tiny hoop earring pierced halfway down the curve of your ear. The piercing is most likely an act of defiance against your traditionally minded parents. You reveal it to show you’re your own person. But it’s the other side of your hair that hangs loose to hide your face that’s so telling. There is a part of you that’s a rebel but doesn’t want to be seen at the same time.” While she sat dumbstruck, I reached out with my hand and allowed myself the touch of her cheek before brushing the hair to secure it behind the other naked ear. “You shouldn’t hide a face as pretty as yours.”

âThe day,â he finally said, âwhen you canât take it anymore.â
âThis.â He slid his hand down my thigh. âThe heat between us, the way it feels when we touch. Damn, just being near you drives me insane. And humans are only gifted with so much patience before they snap. I hope to God that Iâm around when you do.â
âYou think Iâm going to go crazy for you, huh?â My voice sounded way too excited about the idea, and my heart decided to skip a few beats while my body cheered yes!
Sanchez shrugged. âI admire self-control, Curves. After all, this isnât going to be a one-night stand, and I have a feeling that youâre going to make me work for it in bed. But donât worry. Iâve been really focusing on my own self-control. Iâll take care of you long before you have a chance to take care of me. So yeah, do I think youâre going to go crazy? Iâm counting on it. Betting on it. Praying for it.â
âBe honest. Is that why Iâm staying with you?â
âHell yes.â He laughed. âIâm not letting you lose your shit around Miller, proximity and all that. Itâs going to be me, all me.â
He took the exit and pulled up to the stoplight. His gaze burned into mine. âWhen it comes to you? Yes. I fucking am.â
