Synopsis (Goodreads):
When I told him to go to hell, I never realized it would be a trip for two.

All I wanted was luck—the good kind. I’d lost my job, a jerk hacked my bank account, and I caught my best friend screwing my fiancĂ©. When stood up by my Internet date in a bar, I met the perfect man—tall, dark, and handsome in the most expensive suit. He was out of my league, but I didn’t want forever.

I barely remember the words he whispered under the veil of sin and seduction. I didn’t believe in Satan, God, Heaven or Hell. I thought he was kidding. A figment. A dream.

I was wrong. With one, breathless yes, my fate was sealed.

Businessman by day, demon by night, Leo Weston now owns my soul in exchange for good luck. Time is ticking as he works to secure my mother’s soul, too. Somehow, I have to take him down despite him being so damned gorgeous, glib, and devious. Will my gift of twisted luck be enough to save her and protect my heart?
Thoughts on Twisted Luck: Oh goodness, I liked this one. For a demon, Leo is a pretty good guy. I mean, he works the soul exchange and everything, but he feels bad about it. On the plus side, he's willing to learn new things. True, it takes a while for him to figure some of those things out, but he does try. I guess it's also true that he kinda has to learn new things given the accidental restrictions Olivia places on him, but he rolls with it.

He rolls with it and ends up a better demon after all is said and done.

Meanwhile, Olivia is doing her best to save both herself and her mother. The gift she asked for is her ace in the hole because good luck can do incredible things when she needs it most. I'm not saying this is a consequence of her luck, but somebody ended up with a well-hung demon and if you're going to bang a demon, banging a well-hung one should be just one of the perks. AMIRITE?!?!

Highly entertaining with a smart, sly heroine who uses her head as well as her luck when she finds herself in a sticky situation. I appreciate that in a heroine. So much.
