    Great Read

    Jackson Philips is a delicious fireman/paramedic whose hot sex-appeal sizzles can cause out-of-control blazes, especially among the nurses who are drawn to his heat. However who is the resident ER Doctor? None other than Jackson's best friend since high school, Dr. Clara Evans.

    Clara has been through a rough year. She cannot wait for it to be over. Coming off a recent divorce, she temporarily bunks in with her BFF Jackson who offers his home and his support for her. What Clara does not seem to realize is the fact that Jackson has been in love with her for years but feels Clara is out of his league since Clara is smart and talented. What Jackson does not understand is that Clara has fantasized about Jackson many times over the years, but she thinks herself too plain to be with such a hottie. Mix this scenario together on New Year's Eve with two lonely characters and what do you get? A great romance blossoming and an even greater holiday short story.

    My biggest complaint with these kind of short stories is just that...they are too short. Other than wishing for more from these lovebirds, this was a wonderful story that leaves one with a warm, romantic feeling. I love romances where the characters are childhood friends. It gives the characters more depth as they seem to know more about one another, so therefore the romance has a fighting chance of lasting forever when based on a strong friendship.

    The love scenes in this story are HOT, HOT, HOT, the characters have exciting chemistry and are totally loveable. This reader smiled through the story and will keep this one to read again in the future.

    Kele Moon did a fantastic job with A Kiss for Luck. After reading this story I found myself hoping to discover my own "Kiss of Luck" especially if the result was even close to this Happily Ever-after. If you want a short but hot holiday romance, than this is the story for you! After-all everyone needs a little Kiss for Luck!

    I definitely recommend A KISS FOR LUCK for a little pick me up when you need it! ~ Under the Covers

    In this quickie by Kele Moon, Dr. Clara Evans and her firefighter best friend, Jackson Philips are spending New Year’s Eve working and alone. After a failed marriage, Clara is feeling bad about herself, seeing herself as unworthy to love and is quite bitter about her recent break-up. As the caring best friend, Jackson tries to comfort her and with some coaxing from a few glasses of wine, both of their secrets are slowly becoming revealed as the clock ticks closer to midnight, signaling a new beginning….for the both of them.

    A KISS OF LUCK is downright steamy and for a short story, I was very impressed by Moon’s ability to create likeable characters and even delve deeper to explore their insecurities. Their hesitancy to explore each other shows just how much they truly mean to one another because they don’t want to mess things up for a steamy romp but everything felt very natural and right for these two.

    I definitely recommend this short for a little pick me up when you need it!
