Blog Tour Stop *A Stroke of Luck *

Howdy Addicts

I am excited to be hosting my first blog tour stop today!!! What better way to get a blog tour started then by posting the actual book and excerpt lol.

So I present to you A Stroke of Luck by Desiree DeOrto
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

Jacob and Katie: He grinned, running his hand over his cropped hair. “Promise you won't laugh?”
She raised an eyebrow. “I can't promise that. But I can promise that I will hear you out before I do laugh.”
He chuckled, and embarrassed flush creeping up his neck. “Well, I've always been creative. Even when I was little. I've always been fascinated with creating something beautiful out of nothing. Or finding beauty where other people overlook.”
She stayed silent for a moment, her green eyes piercing into him. He felt like she was looking into his soul, opening it up and inspecting all aspects of it. He was ensnared. A blush stained her cheeks as she looked away.
“I don't think that's funny. I find it quite remarkable actually.”

Character Bio

My Review
A Stroke of Luck is one of those books where you need a cold shower after reading(or your other half lol). I loved it!!

This novella is about a waitress named Katie who works in a Diner on the graveyard shift. Katie returned back to her small hometown after getting away and divorcing her abusive ex-husband. After dealing with the physical and emotional scars at the hands of her ex. Katie is through with love that is until sexy artist Jacob enters the diner. Jacob was searching for his next muse to reignite his masterpieces. When Jacob first lain eyes on Katie he knew that there was more to her then a muse for his artistic inspiration. Sparks fly between the two but will Katie let her guard down to let Jacob in and love her the way she is suppose to be loved??

I loved this story it was a quick read. The chemistry between Katie and Jacob was off the charts hot. I loved that Desiree didn't try to pack a big story in a small package. It was just the right mix of hot, sweetness, drama and swoon to leave you satisfied or craving for more(hint hint lol). I love Bud he is suck a sweetheart that will pull at your heartstrings as the widowed Diner Cook/Owner. But all in all this is a good book to read when you are in between books or want to get over a book hangover. I can't wait on the next installment to see how Bud will work his magic on his other waitress Vicky.
