Thanks for the great comments last week. (And every week.) I’m so glad you all enjoyed watching Sara try not to catch Nia’s bridal bouquet. The rest of the scene is good for a few more laughs, so I recommend picking up ICING ON THE CAKE and reading the entire thing. *hint hint*
Today’s snippet follows after Sara has properly dealt with that darn bouquet. Well, aside from the fact that Curtis has video evidence of the ordeal on his cell phone…
Curtis circled her wandering hand with his fingers. “Arresting you for pickpocketing isn’t how I intend to spend our night together.”
“So just give it to me.”
“Oh, I plan to.” His free hand landed on her ass, pulled her in tight enough to feel the hard ridge pressing against her abdomen. “You feel that? Forget the phone—that’s what I’m going to give to you. Every way you can take it, then maybe a couple more.”
ICING ON THE CAKE is Book 2 of the Close to Home series but can be read as a standalone.

ICING ON THE CAKE
Close to Home series — Book 2
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…
