Dr. Clara Evans is trying to get through a divorce and her best friend, Jackson Philips, is allowing her to stay with him for a while. Clara is an emergency room doctor and Jackson is a paramedic. They have known each other since high school. Her soon to be ex, Frank, is a real jerk and Clara deserves better.
Clara is trying to survive New Year’s Eve quietly when Jackson walks through the door. She takes matters into her own hands and gives him a midnight kiss. He reciprocates by giving pleasure she has never felt before – she’s never felt better.
Even as Jackson and Clara make love, he pays her compliments. How many of you would appreciate that? Jackson also takes care of her. He is definitely a “friend with benefits”. I wouldn’t mind him as my friend! They’re very comfortable about their sexuality and themselves. They know what they want and are willing to give what the other needs.
If this story was a paper edition, the pages would be scorched. If you’re looking for a quick read, this is definitely one I would recommend reading. Kele grabs the reading right from the beginning. This is one of those short stories that you don’t mind reading over and over again. I would also check out any other books that Kele has written. This story would definitely make a great Lifetime movie – although the censors would have to get involved and that wouldn’t be a good thing. One can always hope though.
I give “A Kiss of Luck” 4 ½ stars (or flames).
