Book Review – Stroke of Luck by Posy Roberts



A note from Posy…

To celebrate GayRomLit and Halloween, I wrote a novella! It’s a Meet-Cute, Contemporary MM Romance between two bisexual men.




unnamed-1After everything Marc owned burned to a crisp, he’s living off the kindness of others. A model condo is his temporary home, and his last dime went to essentials. He doesn’t need another distraction, but the fates conspire against him, setting up a chain of encounters that bring him face to face with Cas.

Cas’s love life has been in limbo for years, lovers moving on as soon as they discover how close he is to his best friend, Maisie. Then he meets Marc. The attraction between the two men can’t be denied, but Cas isn’t sure he can risk his friendship for a guy who will only end up leaving when he sees how close he and Maisie are.

When Marc and Cas discover they live in the same building, it’s kismet. But Marc has to invite chaos into his life if he and Cas stand a chance, and Cas faces a choice between friendship and love. Luck may be on their side… if they’re willing to risk it all.

Christina‘s review

4 of 5 Stars


Typically, my biggest complaint with a novella is that in order to seem complete it is often rushed. While Marc and Cas’ relationship did advance quickly, it didn’t feel abnormally rushed for me. My biggest problem in this novella is that it seemed like a triangle and I don’t do triangles…at all. Maisie was the third main character of this story and didn’t seem to want to let Cas go which was completely unfair to both Marc and Cas. I didn’t like how controlling she was with Cas which eventually lead to unnecessary angst.

Marc and Cas are adorable together when there is nothing else getting in their way. Cas has some insecurities to work through with both his sexuality and his birthmark. Marc obviously has some personal issues to deal with after the fire but they work well together when being themselves. And their chemistry is off the charts!

This is a quick read that I would recommend with the warning that there is a 3rd major character that might not be well liked.



Real. Genuine. Love.

image009Posy Roberts writes about the realistic struggles of men looking for love. Whether her characters are family men, drag queens, or lonely men searching for connections, they all find a home in her stories.

Posy is a Jill of all trades and master of the drill and paintbrush. She’s married to a partner who makes sure she doesn’t forget to eat or sleep during her writing frenzies. Her daughter, a budding author and cinematographer, helps her come up with character names. For fun, Posy enjoys crafting, hiking, and singing spontaneously about the mundane, just to make regular life more interesting.
