About The Lucky Ones:
Kendall Moore’s professional life has never been better. She’s an in-demand video editor who’s just started her own business, and that business is booming. She rarely has a moment to relax and has completely thrown herself into her work, which is just the way that she likes it. There’s just one tiny issue in her pursuit of professional and personal happiness: she’s getting burned out.
Of course, it doesn’t help that she’s hopelessly and secretly in love with her totally off-limits business partner, Jordan.
Jordan Murphy is an aspiring filmmaker with a past that he’s desperate to put behind him. When an opportunity arises to go to Vegas and film for a project he’s working on, he gets Kendall to agree to come along with him. After he makes a lucky bet that leads to a weekend full of fun, unexpected confessions, and a visit to a wedding chapel that neither one of them can remember, Kendall and Jordan head home wondering if what happened in Vegas should stay in Vegas…
The more, it turns out, is a grand lakeview suite. One full side of it is nothing but windows, overlooking the strip and the fountains. There’s a living area, a dining room, two bedrooms—thank god Skye wasn’t obvious enough to get us only one—a wet bar, and more. I could probably fit my whole apartment in my ensuite bathroom.
My best friend is a movie star, so it’s not like I haven’t stayed in amazing places before, but when you’re presented with something like this out of nowhere, it seems even better somehow.
I text Skye a thank you, because I know she would kill me if I interrupted this weekend to call her. I also make it known that I’m not sure whether I should want to hug her or strangle her.
She tells me I can do both so long as I have a good time this weekend.
Not having a good time seems impossible.
When the concierge leaves Jordan and I to our own devices, I look over at him accusingly. “So, you and Skye did this? You two were in cahoots? You cahooted?”
He laughs. “Don’t let River hear you say that.”
I roll my eyes. “Jordan.”
“Okay, yes, we were in cahoots. We’re just two people who wanted you to take a break and we figured the only way we could do it was to trick you into it by tying it with something work-related.”
Hearing it presented to me like this gives me a whole new outlook on the kind of life I’ve been living. That my friends thought they had to trick me into a mini vacation is pretty sad, but what’s even sadder is that they’re right.
Under any other circumstances, I probably wouldn’t have come willingly.
Now her insistence on packing my clothes makes more sense. She wanted to make sure I came here with everything I needed.
“I think I had a meeting on my calendar for tomorrow afternoon,” I say. And wow, how pathetic.
“You didn’t, I checked. No more thinking about work. And to make sure that you don’t, there’s a masseuse coming to give you a massage in five minutes.”
After the initial shock wears off, I realize that in order to make it through this weekend, I’m just gonna have to expect the unexpected and go with the flow.
“And then what?”
He smiles, probably happy that I’m not fighting him. “And then dinner.”
He winks. “That’s a surprise.”
“What should I wear?”
“You’ll find out after the massage.”
Okay, maybe I can’t do this go with the flow thing. “Jordan, what—”
“Trust me,” he says. This long, meaningful look passes between us.
“Always,” I whisper.
He takes a step into my personal space and clasps my hand in his. He’s so close I have to crane my neck to look at him. “Enjoy your massage,” he says, giving my hand a squeeze. “I’ll meet you in the lobby when you’re done.” He lets go of my hand, his touch lingering as long as it can before distance breaks it.
The lobby is an incredibly large general area in a place like this. “Where in the lobby?”
He gives me a soft smile when he stops at the door. “You’ll know when you’re down there.”
