I hope you’re enjoying Curtis and Sara’s fun, fiery courtship from ICING ON THE CAKE. In this week’s snippet, they’ve (finally) made it into his car after a few very hot minutes in the parking lot that involved Sara taking off her heels to avoid scratching the paint on the hood of Curtis’ Mustang.
“Ooh, are we going to role-play ‘dirty cop fucks a call girl’? I like that one.”
“I don’t role-play.” The look he gave her while bringing the car rumbling to life would have made an erupting volcano seem frigid. “I don’t need games to make sex exciting.”
For many guys, that claim would be laughable. Coming from Curtis, it seemed more like a threat wrapped in a promise…or the other way around. Either way, it was no joke.
ICING ON THE CAKE is Book 2 in the Close to Home series but can be read as a standalone.
Check out all the snippets from the Weekend Writing Warriors.
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…
