Lauren Phillips lived a difficult life. Every day was spent working hours on end, in a coffee shop, with barely any free time. Making matters worse, both her parents had cancer, and required lengthy treatments, that no doubt wouldn't be undergone unless payment was provided...payment Lauren was struggling with due to her minimal wages. That of course, doesn't help considering the daily struggle of bills, let alone providing dinner on the table for her family. After all, she only manages to get by with what she has, time being her sacrifice. Safe to say, her life was consumed by constant stress and pressure. It was her responsibility to take care of her family, yet who would take care of her?
  
   No one. 
  
   At the end of day, she herself couldn't afford the time to enjoy a restful sleep, let alone any desire to treat herself. So any thought when it came to bothering with love...well that was just a rarity. She wouldn't even have the dare time to provide more care for someone else!
  
  Now, meet Damien Jones. A renowned billionaire, with everything given to him by the click of his fingers. No struggles, no stress and no worries to consume his life. Raised by loving parents, with a warm relationship with his two siblings - everyone was just at ease for him. 
  
  He had no experience with the harsh reality of struggling to pay bills, or putting dinner on the table every night. 
  
  Simply, he lived the life, many desired to live. The man woman wanted to be loved by, the man other men wanted to be.
  
  He was...well, he was the closest thing to perfection, in this imperfect world.
  
  ______________________________
  
  One day he decided...he wanted a coffee... and popped into Lauren's shop. What happens when Damien meets Lauren for the first time? Will he get to know her? Or will he judge her like every other person? Will Lauren's life finally change for the better?
  
  Find out in 'One Coffee, No Money'.

I already got attached to Lauren to be honest, she's such a fighter and also a mature grown woman as she demonstrated on the first paragraphs, but also with an inner happy child side. Congratulations, great character!
