Audiobook Review: Lucky Number Eleven by Adriana Locke

by Adriana Locke
Audiobook narrated by Wen Ross and‎ Kai Kennicott

People say not to believe the things you read in magazines, but you know what? Most things you've 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. I'm also not really six-foot tall. (But let's keep that between us.)
Now, I know you're wondering about that last Expose headline - the one about me and my teammate (and ex-best friend) Finn Miller's sister, Layla James. That one is a little more complicated. Here's the thing: I've played football my whole life.
If there's one thing I know, it's how to adjust when the game changes. And if there's one thing I always do, it's find a way to win. Granted, the stakes are higher. The playbook has changed. There's more on the line than (another) MVP title.
But guess what hasn't changed? Me. I'm still Branch "Lucky" Best and I'm not about to fumble this one. Grab a seat and a subscription to Expose. I'm about to make some headlines. (Again.)
My review: 4.5 Stars!

I love a good football romance, and Adriana Locke really scored with this one! It's flirty, funny, and super sexy yet still sweet. I adored the witty banter and great characters. The chemistry was off the charts- I loved Layla and Branch together. Lucky Number Eleven was a quick, fun read and although this is a standalone, I'd love to see more of these characters. Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott were great narrators and I was so pumped to see that the narration was done duet style- it's pretty rare but I am so glad the style is catching on and hope we see more of it. It adds so much to the experience.

Here's a quick definition of the two different styles of multiple character narrations.

Duet narration = narrators alternating reading the male and female parts in a chapter.
Dual narration = narrators reading entire POV chapters.
