Synopsis as posted on Amazon:
Holly Ward is stretched to the breaking point, raising her young son alone and working long hours for minimum wage at a local superstore. Sure, she’s noticed the new guy with the easy grin and warm brown eyes, but she’s learned the hard way that relationships aren’t worth the pain. Still, when he invites her to split a lottery ticket, she figures a little innocent fun couldn’t hurt. The last thing she expects is to score big, which is exactly what happens . . . in more ways than one.
From the moment he meets Holly, Ray Lopez is drawn to her quiet dignity and openhearted beauty. And when they hit the jackpot together, he’s thrilled that the single mom can give her kid a better life. The only problem is the chaos surrounding them: lawyers and reporters swarming, friends and family angling to get their cut. In all the chaos, Ray discovers an oasis of calm and passion in Holly. But with the stakes higher than ever, winning her trust could cost him everything.
This is the story of single mother, Holly Ward, working paycheck to paycheck to make ends meet for her and her son, Drew. Holly is divorced from her emotionally abusive ex-husband, Brett. Holly and her ex have a shared custody arrangement with their son of one week with mom and one week with dad. Brett has since remarried to a sugar mama, Emma, whose money is showered upon Drew.
One day while working at her menial job, a co-worker, Ray, convinces Holly to go half on a Powerball ticket, and they win, BIG!
You would think that this makes the lives of Holly and Ray so much easier, but they both struggle with inner demons throughout this book, including their obvious attraction for one another. Holly is clearly still suffering from the emotional abuse inflicted upon her by her ex, and Ray is reeling from the loss of his mother and his uncertain future.
The author really does an amazing job of bringing the entire story into one cohesive love story, while incorporating some really hot sex scenes along the way.
Overall, I give this story 3.5 out of 4 “Niagara Falls”. See rating system here.
