Time for another Sunday snippet from ICING ON THE CAKE. Best man Curtis and maid of honor Sara are at their siblings’ wedding reception, and it’s almost time for the bride and groom’s first dance. If you think back to last week’s snippet, you’ll remember how Lindsay (Curtis’s sister) feels about Sara…
Curtis’s big, hard body pressed against Sara’s back as he turned her away from his sister—and trouble. “Lindsay’s had one too many glasses of wine,” his mouth brushed the shell of her ear as he spoke, “be a good girl and walk away.”
“Now you want me to be good? I thought you wanted me to be very, very bad.”
“Oh, I do. And you will be, later.”
“Pretty presumptuous, lawman.”
“Part of why you like me.”
“Also presumptuous—I never said I like you.”
ICING ON THE CAKE is Book 2 in 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…
