“Firefighters are the hottest.”
-hallway table scene > can I say hot?! Red-hot!
– epilogue > loved this perfect ending!
A KISS FOR LUCK is a friends-to-lovers novella that gave me a great first taste of Kele Moon’s writing and it definitely makes me crave more. Granted, there were a few eyebrow-raising moments (to do with Clara’s marriage) but they were all obliterated by the excellent writing and the scorching sex scene(s) that were wrought with emotions.
And with a vocal hero named Jackson, Kele Moon had this one in the bag from the moment I started reading the first page and I was sad to come to the end as I could’ve kept on reading about Jackson and Clara forever!
She was breathless, stunned and overwhelmed with the rush of longing invading her senses, making her blind to everything but the need for more of him. If he could do this to her with one kiss she would never have to fake anything. With Jackson she would want it to last forever.
For the first time in years she felt vibrant and alive. Everywhere he touched she burned. Shivers and gooseflesh followed his caresses. Her senses where overwhelmed with him and she would have done anything to keep him there with her.
She shattered instantly, bucking against his mouth and fisting his hair tightly as her whole body shuddered in climax. She screamed from the ferocity of so much passion uncoiling at once. Pleasure ricocheted through her, filling her with tingling warmth when it finally passed. Dazed and sated, her eyes blinked open to see Jackson staring up at her in awe and surprise
He tilted his head back, closing his eyes as the hot water ran over his face and his libido raged, careless of the complexities of his now drastically altered friendship with Clara. Remembering her standing in his bedroom, wanting her again with a hunger that was all consuming, he wished he had the balls to jerk off and ease some of the tension that wasn’t subsiding despite their activities earlier.
It was Clara. She made him burn in a way that was wild and rare and he wanted to capture this feeling and keep it forever.
