About Lucky Star:
What happens when two best friends who are secretly in love with each other hookup after one too many shots of tequila?
For Sarah Travers and Cameron Scott, their friendship is quickly overshadowed by the uncertainty that comes with crossing the line from friends to lovers. Their problems are compounded when Cameron is cast as the lead in a major Hollywood blockbuster and he must decide what’s more important: sticking by the woman he’s loved since the moment they met or the bright lights and temptation of superstardom.
Sarah: When I met Cameron we hit it off like macaroni and cheese. Now we’re practically inseparable but I’ve been hiding the fact that I’m in love with him. Truly, madly, deeply. He finally figured it out and everything changed between us forever. That’s not my biggest problem though. You see, Cameron just landed the role of a lifetime and, despite how he feels about me, I’m worried I’m about to play second fiddle to the bright lights and temptations of Hollywood.
Cameron: I think I’ve loved Sarah since the first moment I laid eyes on her. It goes without saying she’s funny, smart, and has curves for days, but it’s more than that. She’s my light in this cynical, messed up world called Hollywood. I’d do anything to be with her, but I keep screwing up what should be easy. Now the studio is pressuring me to date my new co-star as part of a PR campaign and all I can think is maybe Sarah and I weren’t meant to be.
Sometime in the five o’clock hour, exhausted but still giddy, I caught him staring at me with a pained look on his face. We had stopped talking about the audition a few minutes prior and had both been drifting in and out of consciousness. Or at least I had. Which was why I was surprised when he slid next to me and rested his hands on either side of my face. He said my name and drunk though I was, I recognized the change in his voice, his mannerisms. I could barely breathe, frozen in place, awareness dawning that this was the most intimately he’d ever touched me.
I remember thinking I needed to pay attention, to focus on what he was saying, what he was doing. As I stared back, I silently willed him to kiss me the way I’d long imagined him doing so. When he gazed back at me with that hungry look a man gets when he’s contemplating a woman he wants desperately, I sobered right up.
I can’t tell you how long we stayed like that, staring at one another while he held my face so tenderly in his hands, his eyes taking me in. I’m sure it was only a handful of seconds but it felt like hours passed as I silently begged him to do something to break the tension. When he caressed my cheek with the pad of his thumb I almost sobbed out loud, the feel of his skin on mine an extraordinary sensation, one that I had wanted more than anything for so, so long. He’d touched my face before, but never like that. He’d also never looked at me before the way he looked at me then.
I don’t know what came over me. I think it had to be the fire I saw burning bright in his eyes. I’d seen that look before from other men, but it had never affected me the way it did at that moment. I wanted Cameron to the depths of my soul – I wanted him in me – and I wasn’t going to let the moment pass. I could tell he wanted me too but I think he was too much of a gentleman to make a move in case it looked like he was trying to take advantage of me when I’d been drinking.
In the split second before I could change my mind I leaned forward and kissed him ever so gently, just a slight touching of my lips to his. When at first he didn’t respond, I started to pull away but then something ignited within him because he kissed me back, only now he wasn’t being quite so gentlemanly. It felt like he was trying to consume me, kissing me like a dying man whose only chance at survival was to be found in my lips.
I reveled in it. My God, how I reveled.
About Rebecca Caudill:
Rebecca has always loved writing stories. When she won a writing contest in third grade (a 1000-word epic tale about her teddy bear, Max), she announced she would someday become an author. When she wasn't writing her own stories, she was sneaking copies of her mom's paperback romances to read late into the night. (Which, thinking back, was probably not appropriate.) After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh in 2000 with a degree in Journalism, she embarked on a career in technology public relations in Silicon Valley, working for some of the country's hottest start-ups and publicly-traded companies. In 2014 she retired from corporate drudgery to write full time. Rebecca lives in Dublin, Ireland, with her husband. When not writing, she is exploring her new city and traveling across Europe searching for inspiration for her next story. (Hint: it involves travel and rugby.)
