Welcome back for another Sunday Snippet, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme. This week, we’re still with Curtis & Sara from ICING ON THE CAKE. (You can catch up with the story here.) In this bite-sized excerpt, Curtis is with Sara after she fled her sister’s wedding rehearsal party in a mess of heightened emotions.
“No.” She ignored the music and the tingling awareness that told her Curtis was staring.
“It’s probably your family, making sure you’re okay.”
“Making sure I’m not going to fuck up Nia’s wedding any more than I already have, you mean.”
She snorted and turned to face him. “Wasn’t it your job to keep me out of trouble?”
He didn’t outright smile, but his lips twitched and telltale crinkles formed at the corners of his eyes. “I didn’t realize I’d have to be on top of you every second. But I’m more than willing to assume that position for the remainder of the weekend.”

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…
