Sunday Snippet – ICING ON THE CAKE – Warning

Happy Sunday! Time for another snippet from ICING ON THE CAKE, coming to you as part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.

This bite follows not too long after last week’s offering. (Catch up here if you haven’t been following Curtis & Sara’s story.) Still at the wedding rehearsal party held at her parents’ home, Sara decides to follow Curtis when he and a handful of their family members wander out of sight. Curtis’ older sister, Lindsay, join Sara, suggesting the group may have gone around back to admire Curtis’ vintage ’67 Mustang.

Icing on the Cake“I keep telling Curtis if he gave a woman half the attention he invests in his car, he might find himself with an actual girlfriend instead of a little black book full of crossed-out names.”

“Maybe that’s why he focuses on the Mustang.”

“Sad but true. Unlike Conn, my other brother does not want to be caught.”

“If you’re trying to warn me off, Lindsay—no need.”

“Really?” Lindsay gave Sara the raised-eyebrow treatment. “Because a person would have to be not only blind, but utterly sensory deprived to miss the ‘I’m not sure if I want to dropkick you or fuck you’ looks you two have been shooting each other.”


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…
