After a slight delay in production, I’m happy to say Chubby & Charming, the first book in the Big & Beautiful series, will be out in two weeks! I can’t wait to share this book with you, but for today, I’m sharing the cover! I really hope you love it as much as I do. Let me know what you think, and enjoy a sneak peak from Mandy and Xander.
“Western New York Health, Mandy speaking. How can I help you today?”
“Mandy, it’s good to hear your voice.”
It was him. Fuck! Why was he calling me again? And why were my nipples jumping up to say hi on their own.
“Xander, how are you? Did you get your EOB?” I was breathing heavily, trying not to be too excited that he called me. After all, it was probably another problem with his claim.
“You remember me?”
“Uh,” I stammered. Shit! I should have let him reintroduce himself. Isn’t the first rule of getting a guy to like you to play hard to get? And wouldn’t making him think you forgot him fall under playing hard to get?
Yeah, there was a reason I didn’t date.
“I, um, I do remember you. Your voice is very distinct.”
‘Very distinct?’ What the hell was that supposed to mean?
“Distinct. And here I got my hopes up that maybe you had the slightest interest in me.”
Did he really just say that? To me? I thought I was going to have a heart attack. And I couldn’t even blame the stairs. I worked on the first floor.
“I don’t know anything about you Xander. I don’t spend too much of my time wondering about men that I have only spoken to once and don’t know.”
‘LIAR’ my mind screamed. I made it sound like I hadn’t been on Facebook every day to see if he mentioned our conversation, or added new pictures of himself. Nope, I hadn’t gone through his profile with a fine-toothed comb looking for indicators that he had a girlfriend, or wife. And I certainly hadn’t been thinking about him day and night.
“Well, I think we need to change that. I was hoping you would meet me sometime. I’d love the chance to maybe buy you a cup of coffee.”
I smiled. No, it wasn’t a smile. It was a shit-eating grin. I couldn’t stop it from covering my face, making me feel like one of the beautiful people. He was gorgeous, simply stunning. And he was asking me out.
