3.5 Stars!

Not bad for a novella! I'm rounding up because it's Kele Moon....and it was hot.

Clara annoyed me a little....but Jackson was RAWR!

Quick, easy, steamy read!

***3.5 Stars***

This was certainly a saucy little nugget!!

A hot, short and entertaining friends to lovers read. Jackson was all kinds of delicious!

I could have done without all the low self-esteem, especially with Clara...but overall, a great, quick read. I think Kele Moon could publish her grocery list and I'd buy it and read it!

Before reading....

Short and fun. Too short to be fabulous, but it's still Kele Moon :D I just want more and more and more from her.
OMG. This is a fabulous, hot, hot, hot little read. The sex is stupendous, the plot is accessible, and the hero and heroine are just so, well, normal and real.

There are so many things I loved about this that it's hard to list them all, but here goes:

- The hero and heroine are so normal, real and likeable. You just feel like you know them. I have to admit, this has sat on my kindle for a while, because I was mistaken into thinking the heroine would be some stuck-up, superior doctor-type, but no,

This was a super hot and sexy with a good pinch of sweet, perfect.
This is the story of Clara and Jackson and how one kiss, and some good lovin, leads to their happily ever after.

I love friends to lovers...just wished it was a bit longer I mean it didn't need to be a full on book just a few chapters more since for me it had that potential. Even though it was very short I loved that we get the feel of their relationship the history of their friendship and it made the sex scene that more sensual! Plus there's nothing hotter than a sexy man in uniform (;

Short but very sweet and sexy. Loved it.

Jess the Romanceaholic
A great friends-to-lovers story, with some deliciously intense love scenes and some heart-felt emotion behind the lust.

While I wish that it had been a little longer, that was more because I simply wanted more Clara and Jackson than because it felt incomplete.

Recommended for fans of unrequited love, friends to lovers, and of scrumptiously intense love scenes.

A deliciously hot 4/5 Stars

I actually read book when I woke up this morning and oh my god was a fabulous hot read. I've read Kele Moon's earilier work, Beyond Eden and I loved it to pieces. This gem was no exception! Even if it was short, I still adore it because wow, Clara and Jackson's love scenes were very sexy. If you love stories where the H/h start as best friend but turn into lovers, then this is the book for you. I enjoyed this A Kiss for Luck very much and I wouldn't mind reading it again!

Carla and Jackson are best friends from high school, secretly longing for each other, until their desire is erupted by a New Year’s Eve kiss.

Well, the story is far from satisfying. Though in Packing Heat and Mercy Bound Kele Moon successfully provides pretty complete characterizations despite the shortness of the stories, here in ‘A Kiss for Luck’ it doesn’t appear. Actually, the story contains a couple of sex scenes, and an epilogue to prove that they are still together a year later.

Cute, sexy, and entertaining friends-to-lovers quick story.

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 r

Wendy's Review

A Kiss for Luck finds two people who have known each other since high school together on New Year's Eve.

Dr. Clara Evans has had a rough year and all she wanted was to spend New Year's Eve with her best friend, Jackson Philips, a hot and gorgeous paramedic. Unfortunately Jackson is working and so Clara decided to celebrate alone with a bottle of wine, drinking away all her troubles or so she thought.

Jackson couldn't fathom Clara being alone on New Year's Eve so when the opportuni
I really REALLY loved this! It's great when you read something that's been hanging around your 'to-read' for ages and it totally knocks you off your feet. I wish I had read this sooner.

I'm not normally drawn to friends-to-lovers stories, which I suspect is why it took me so long to read it. I find them a little hard to believe but I must say that this one was absolute perfection. The right mixture of passion and emotion and most importantly (for me) a good and believable explanation as to why th

Clara has had the most horrible year ever! Also she is ready to start over and move on from her jerk of a husband; thank goodness for her best friend and the man staring in her nightly erotic dreams, Jackson, has taken her in and is helping her move on with her life in more ways than one.

Jackson isn’t sure he can handle the feelings he has for the ever so lovely Dr. Clara, but he isn’t going to let anything get in his way now that things have taken a new turn in their relationship. Clara is surp

Hot fireman friend/lover

Dr Clara Evans works in the ER. Jackson Phillips is a hot firefighter who happens to be her best friend since high school. Clara is getting a divorce and is staying with Jackson temporarily. These two are fighting their own battle of lusting for each other since high school but not wanting to jeopardize their friendship. So they say and do nothing......that is until this particular New Years Eve!!!

This is a short but sweet romance where you want to reach in through the pa
A very short sexy read about two best friends who have been in love with each other forever but never said it, the hero because the heroine is a smart doctor and he didn't feel smart enough and the heroine because she doesn't feel pretty enough. Now, she is getting a divorce from a prick and crashing with him, some wine makes for sexy times and confessions of hidden feelings .

This was a very nice friends-to-lovers short story. Clara and Jackson were perfect for each other. But despite their deep emotional connection, and the intense sex they shared, they both had to overcome their insecurities before they could be together. Adorable epilogue.
