If you ask me my top three authors they would be Emma Hart, Julia Kent and Jasmine Miller. With the addition of Little Miss Perfect and Fluffy, Julia has moved on up the ranks.
Little Miss Perfect is a prequel but the plot of Fluffy is – It all started with the wrong Help Wanted ad. Of course it did.
I’m a professional fluffer. It’s NOT what you think. I stage homes for a living. Real estate agents love me, and my work stands on its own merits.
Sigh. Get your mind out of the gutter. Go ahead. Laugh. I’ll wait.
See? That’s the problem. My career has used the term “fluffer” for decades. I didn’t even know there was a more… lascivious definition of the term.
Until it was too late.
The ad for a “professional fluffer” on Craigslist seemed like divine intervention. My last unemployment check was in the bank. I was desperate. Rent was due. The ad said cash paid at the end of the day. The perfect job!
Staging homes means showing your best angle. The same principle applies in making a certain kind of movie. Turns out a “fluffer” doesn’t arrange decorative pillows on a couch.
They arrange other soft, round-ish objects.
The job isn’t hard. Er, I mean, it is — it’s about being hard. Or, well… helping other people to be hard.
And that’s the other problem. A man. No, not one of the stars on the movie set. Will Lotham – my high school crush. The owner of the house where we’re filming. Illegally. In a vacation rental.
By the time the cops show up, what I thought was just a great house staging gig turned into a nightmare involving pictures of me with an undressed star, Will rescuing me from an arrest, and a humiliating lesson in my own naivete.
My job turned out to be so much harder than I expected. But you know what’s easier than I ever imagined?
Having all my dreams come true.
My View – I decided I would do this right and read them in order, something I am known for not doing. Although I received Little Miss Perfect in doses through email, I held out so I could read them together. Something I highly recommend you do also. Both books can be read as standalones but they are connected and can help you get the bigger picture. The back story is important here.
Truth is, many times I found myself legitimately LOLing and not just by the mention of where I live, delivered in a well placed comment in LMP, but multiple times. Both books are packed with humor and the romance is slow building but completely worth the wait.
Fluffy is by far my favorite book by Julia to date and I can not wait for Perky.
