When you work in an all-night diner, you never know who will walk in the door.

Katie Jones doesn't believe in love at first sight. After divorcing her abusive husband, she doesn't believe in love at all. But when Jacob Richmond walked into Bud's Diner, her disbelief was put to the test.

Jacob came to Kansas to find inspiration. He was searching for the subject that would be the muse for his next masterpiece. He wasn't expecting to find himself completely consumed by a waitress who had more baggage than he thought possible.

When love at first sight just doesn't cut it, your burning desire can't be controlled. Sometimes you need just a little luck to put it all together.

He was searching for inspiration....
She was searching for an escape...
But with a Stroke Of Luck, anything can happen.

66 pages. Needs to be edited for grammar mistakes and using incorrect words. Did not finish. Not likely to read this author again.

First of all, this is a new adult read.   That means adults only should be reading this sexually explicit read.  And it is also a short story, approximately 65 pages or so.   The story begins with a stranger entering the diner where Katie works and the animal magnetism they feel for one another, (that's another term for lust).    Katie had never experienced this kind of attraction....not for her ex or anyone since her ex.   But Jacob Richmond was different and she wanted what she wanted.  He wanted what he wanted.   Thus began the hot and delicious familiarity scenes. And here enters the problem.   Jacob is married.   Katie is scarred, both physically and emotionally.   There's the realization this relationship won't ever work.   And it's over, until Bud, the owner of the restaurant escorts Katie to an art showing where it is all about her. The characters are endearing, but I don't get too cozy with instant-love.   I could appreciate how hard Jacob had to work to attempt to win Katie back after his deception.   I enjoyed the fast pace of the story, but wished we had delved a little deeper into personalities and storyline.   This could have been written into a much deeper tale.   But overall, the read was enjoyable.

I am given this story 4 star's only because it was too short., this was a very beautiful story, I just wish it gave a bit more history and insight on both Katie & Jacob characters & of course Bud and a little more into the other waitress seeing how she is the next love match Bud has in store....In truth it was just to overwhelming and intense of a story for only 66 pages which, took your focus away from the main story and characters and left you feeling as though something was missing., because it had such strong and raw emotion that were crammed into each page and yet the history behind all that just seemed have been left out. and because of  that it just left holes in the story that left you at time confused on why this & why that... Over all the writing style was great and spot on. & It was an enjoyable read and I look forward to seeing what's next :)
