30 days. That was all I had left to find a new shop and a new place to live. Thankfully, the perfect place was available, and I was going to get it.
Not only did I not get the store I wanted, a new bakery was moving in. Right across the street from me. I had nowhere to go, and this new place was primed to steal my hard-earned customers. And there was nothing I could do about it.
Frustrated didn’t even begin to describe it. The only thing going right for me was meeting Max. He was sweet and sexy and made me forget all about my problems for a little while. Until I find out who he really is, and where he goes when he disappears on me.
Excerpt from Fluffy & Fabulous
“You look amazing,” he told me from across the room. My back was to him and I bit my lip to stop the snarky reply that was on the tip of my tongue.
Instead I argued, “I’m a mess.”
His arms circled my waist and turned me around to face him. “If you’re a mess, you’re a beautiful mess.” He leaned down and pressed his nose into my neck, inhaling deeply. “God, I’ve missed the smell of you. How you taste,” his tongue darted out and licked my throat. My head dropped back all on its own and a moan slipped past my lips. “The way you sound. You’ve haunted my dreams. I can’t get enough of you.”
“Then I guess it’s a good thing there’s a lot of me.”
He pulled back and glared down at me, his eyes blazing with fire. “I truly hope you aren’t implying you’re overweight.”
I snorted. “Not implying so much as outright admitting it.” I shrugged. “My grams always said I was ‘fluffy’ like a perfect cupcake, not fat. Either way they mean the same thing.”
Max cupped my face with such tenderness that I almost couldn’t meet his eyes. “Please don’t say that about yourself. You’re fabulous and don’t let anyone convince you otherwise. Weight is a number, but not one that determines who you are. Besides, all it means is I get to spend a bit longer kissing every last bit of your skin.”
His mouth was back on me, open-mouthed kisses on my jaw, my neck, the underside of my forearms… It was heaven, simply sensual and getting me more turned on than I’d ever been from just a kiss.
