Sexy, contemporary, romantic comedy! Steamy with some science fiction! Meet Lucky (yes, his last name really is Dawg!), with all his funny male quirks - it's a guy thing... Meet Lucy, with her unspoken expertise of how true intimacy actually works... Is it really aliens or just some weirdos riding 4-wheelers through the woods having fun spooking Lucy?

This was a quick, enjoyable listen. A middle age man, fairly average from what I can tell, decides to do an investigation in to some phenomenon that had been happening in the NY region. He and Lucy fall for each other quickly. I really liked Ditto the horse. One thing I could have done without, though were all of Lucky's 'yeah right' moments. The narrator did a good job. I would be glad to listen to something narrated by them in the future.

AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall 4 Narration 4 Story 4
A short introduction to the characters, world and author’s writing all come through in this first installment in Edward Fox’s story, Lucky Dawg Meets Lucky Lucy.
Fox delivers on characters: Lucky (so named by his parents) is a detective of sorts- investigating aliens and other UFO type activities despite not really believing in the phenomena. He’s got a very “noir” approach to dialog and use of language, fond of “gal” and sounding very 40’s in all the best non-pc ways. Lucy has retreated to life in a small cabin in the woods with her dog, preferring solitude and her own space to a life filled with people, but close enough to get necessities. With care, Fox brings us enough background on these two characters (despite the abbreviated length) to give us some solid belief in their reasoning and needing to know what would happen with these two.
When things go bump in the night, and Lucy starts to see things that she can’t quite rationalize or explain and things start to twist. A blog post brings her to Lucky’s attention, and he takes a circuitous route to her in New York. Together, Lucky and Lucy are electric. While there was an instant connection between the two, Fox doesn’t use the connection or the steam that illustrates it dance over the edge of crude. Yes, there is sex, steamy moments even, but displayed with a sensuality (and lovely dialogue) that truly keep readers engaged and believing in their connection and relationship. Cleverly done in about 130 pages, Fox has managed to make their story feel much longer and deeper, we haven’t noticed the short length until it is over – and we want more: more of this crazy mismatched couple, more about the aliens, more from The Alien, and even to see what scuffle and mystery Lucky will drag us into next.
Narration for this story is provided by Scott Pollack, my first introduction to his narration. A bold choice, and if I had to describe him, his voice is similar to Scott Simon of NPR fame. Use of his voice as “Lucky” feels solid and appropriate, with adjustments in tone and delivery to fit the moment. When voicing Lucy, he doesn’t change his tone much, but does use nuanced delivery and presentation to bring her to light. It was a delight to listen to, and he managed to present the story, not overreaching for emotions, action or adding to context that readers would interpret for themselves.
