Welcome back for another Sunday snippet, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme. This week’s bite-sized excerpt is from ICING ON THE CAKE, Book 2 of the Close to Home series. (Catch up on previous snippets here.)
Consummate badgirl Sara is the maid of honor at her sister’s impending fairytale wedding. Curtis is the groom-to-be’s tall, dark & tattooed brother, aka the best man, and unfortunately for Sara, he’s also a cop. And we all know cops & badgirls don’t mix…
She yanked, and his fingers tightened around her wrist. “By handcuffing me to six feet of good behavior?”

ICING ON THE CAKE
Nia and Conn’s wedding will be fairytale perfect…if their siblings can get along.
Free-spirited, anti-establishment Sara has always been on the outside of her family’s fairytale mold. Now she’s being forced smack into the middle of it at her sister Nia’s wedding. Alongside the cocky and annoyingly sexy best man—Conn’s cop brother.
Curtis doesn’t buy in to organized romance and fairytales. But for his brother, he’ll throw on a tux and fake it for a few hours. His flak vest would have been a better choice around the maid of honor. He should have brought his handcuffs too, because somebody needs to restrain the dark-haired spitfire—and he’s just the man for the job.
One night to indulge the spark between them, then goodbye—that was the agreement. Curtis isn’t looking for a relationship and he sure doesn’t want a troublemaker for a girlfriend. The last thing Sara needs in her daily life is a cop looking over her shoulder, no matter how hot he is.
But giving in to their chemistry is much more fun than giving it up…
