Story:
The main character Rebecca (Becky) Bloomwood, a financial journalist, loved to shop anything & everything has a job of telling people how to manage their money but not herself, resulted in debt.
She tried cutting back of the expenditures which didn’t work because of the shopping.
She also tried in making more money but didn’t know where to start.
Her only consolation was to buy herself something . . . just a little something.

Characters:
Becky was clueless about saving & came up with some crazy schemes to make extra money which were funny. Her character was portrayed well and I liked her with the flaws.
I didn’t like Derek Smeath(Bank manager) in the movie but he appeared as a good one in the book.
And Luke Brandon in the movie was amazing than the book. I missed their scenes in the book.

My thoughts:
I watched the movie adaptation 5 years back & totally loved it but I didn’t know about the book then.
When I came to know about the book & Sophie kinsella is the author of it, I wanted to read it.I really didn’t want to compare the movie with the book but the movie was definitely better.(there.. I said it) I accept that it was my mistake to watch the movie before the book. So I was kinda expecting the scenes in the movie to appear in the book which disappointed me a little. The movie was like a fan fiction of the book.
When I think about it now after finishing the book, I liked it and very much enjoyed the story.
If you want to read a super fast and light, then this is the book for you. An enjoyable read!

Rome’s Chance by Joanna Wylde- Review & Excerpt

 

From New York Times Bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes ROME’S CHANCE, a new novella in her Reapers MC series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!

 

About ROME’S CHANCE:
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes a new story in her Reapers MC series…

Rome McGuire knew he was in trouble the first time he saw her.

She was sweet and pretty and just about perfect in every way. She was also too young and innocent for the Reapers Motorcycle Club. He did the right thing, and walked away.

The second time, he couldn’t resist tasting her.

Gorgeous and smart, fun and full of wonder, she jumped on his bike and would’ve followed him anywhere. Still, she deserved a shot at happiness somewhere bigger and better than a town like Hallies Falls. Walking away wasn’t so easy that time, but her family needed her and he had a job to do.

When she came around a third time, he’d had enough. Randi Whittaker had been given two chances to escape, and now it was time for Rome to take his.

This time, the only way Randi would be leaving Hallies Falls was on the back of Rome’s bike.

 

Review:

Rome’s chance is a short & sweet story of Rome & Randi. It’s a novella that can be read as a standalone. Like me!! This is the first book of hers I’ve read. So it’s time I read her other books.

Rome is a whole package – alpha, confident, romantic, protective & sexxyyy. 4.5 Stars for his character.

Randi is mentioned as innocent one but her thoughts aren’t innocent at all, if you know what I mean. Her character development could’ve been better. 3.5 Stars to Randi.

Apart from Rome & Randi, I love Lexi & Peaches. Lexi is like a roller coaster. And everyone should’ve a friend like Peaches. 4 Stars to supporting characters.

I really love the romance between the two but the love & affection could’ve been portrayed well. Its just that I want to read more about the two as its a short read. 3.5 Stars to the romance.

My rating: 4 Stars

If you want to try Joanna Wylde’s writing style with a good story & a bit of steamy romance, Grab your copy of ROME’S CHANCE today!

Excerpt:

Chemistry.

This was pure chemistry, and we’d had it from the very first. Our eyes had met across that keg and it was all over… Now Rome’s eyes found mine again, and that same spark I was feeling flared in their depths.

“F*ck, you’re beautiful,” he said, his face softening. I blinked, every bit as mesmerized as I’d felt at the grocery store. He leaned forward, still sitting on the bike, and caught my hand, pulling me toward him. “I’m gonna kiss you.”

“Yes, please,” I whispered, brain fully disengaged. His hand came up and caught the back of my head, then our lips met and I died a little.

He’d kissed me twice before, years ago. Those kisses had been soft. Devastating and intense, but very gentle. Sweet.

This was totally different. This came hard and fast, his mouth overwhelming mine with a powerful, masculine hunger I hadn’t expected. His tongue thrust against the seam of my lips, and when I didn’t immediately open, his teeth followed, nipping just enough to startle me. I gasped, and then he was inside.

There was nothing sweet about him right now.

Rome’s hand twisted in my hair, holding my head captive as his tongue pushed inside my mouth. Fire exploded through me, a deep well of heat settling between my legs. My hands reached up to catch his shoulders and then I was all in, giving as good as he gave me.

His other arm came around my waist, crushing me against him. This wasn’t nearly as awkward as it should’ve been, considering he was still on the bike. Maybe we could just skip dinner. Go straight to the fun part of the date…

A loud honking and the sound of someone screaming “Wooohooo!” from a passing car jolted me out of the moment. I pushed against his shoulders. Rome let me step back, although he kept his arm around my body. His eyes were smoky with lust, and I thought I saw the hint of a flush showing underneath the tan of his cheeks.

Yup, the feeling was definitely mutual.

He’s a mystery. An enigma.

Now I need him in order to save everything that matters to me.

I have to pull back. Protect myself from the danger that haunts his every step.

Which would be easy . . . if I could stop myself from falling in love with him.

Book review: Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

Eliza.jpg

Goodreads Blurb:

Her story is a phenomenon. Her life is a disaster.

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try.

Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile.

But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.

My review:

I was very afraid to start this book because of the hype. Now that I’ve read it, I’m finally in peace, it was a good book indeed.

Eliza – famous anonymous webcomic creator who wear sweaters, hardly talk to people at school, spends most of the time online with her “monster’s sea” family.
For a girl like Eliza, you would expect the guy to be talkative/sports person/someone in a gang/hottie of the school. Big No to the above qualifications. Wallace has selective mutism and he wants to be a writer.
The protagonists communicate mostly by writing/texting with minimum of talking. Friendship into romance is wonderfully done. I give 5 stars for the character development.

Eliza’s love of art & creating the characters are amazingly written. The webcomics world – the merch, cosplay, how its being celebrated among fans are described very well.

Internet world- I really love the way the author has appreciated online friendships. We could talk to people who share things alike irrespective of the age gap. That is really portrayed well.

Towards the end I didn’t like the way they made up after not talking for a long time. I hate Wallace for not being with Eliza when she needed him. I found him a little bit(not entirely) selfish. I’m not much into the monster’s sea part actually. I got little irritated when the story/ illustrations popped up. Apart from that the story has everything you could ask for in a YA book.

My rating: 4 Stars

Cover Reveal: ARROGANT DEVIL by R.S. Grey

Are you ready for ARROGANT DEVIL? We are so excited to reveal the cover of this next release from R.S. Grey! Check it out below!

 

 

About ARROGANT DEVIL (available May 10th)

Everyone in Cedar Creek, Texas, knows Jack McNight is an arrogant devil. Physically, I get it: he’s tan and fit, with coal-black hair that’s clearly been scorched by hellfire. Oh, and his personality? It burns just as hot.

When I show up on the doorstep of Blue Stone Ranch, I’m run-down and rockin’ my last pair of underwear. I’m hoping for a savior, but instead, I find him.

My opinion of Jack is marred by a dismal first impression, but his opinion of me is tainted even before I arrive. He’s heard I’m a spoiled princess there to take advantage of his goodwill. To him, I’m more trouble than I’m worth.

Our button-pushing banter should get under my skin. His arrogance should be a major turn-off. Problem is, devils are known to offer their own form of temptation.

Every one of his steely glares sends a shiver down my spine.

Every steamy encounter leaves me reeling.

Sure, it could be the Texas heat messing with my head, but there’s no way I’ll survive the summer without silencing him with a kiss and wrestling him out of those Wranglers.

Who knows…going to bed with the devil might just be the salvation I’ve been looking for all along.

The world’s worst boyfriend by Erika Kelly – Book Review + EXCERPT

Blurb:

Fin Bowie is a popular snowboarder & athlete and also give people advise with nutrition & training. His father has made his sons competitive with each other in a healthy way. Being the youngest of all, he’s always wanted to prove himself.
And that has cost him his love.
Calliope Bell, an introvert but a tomboy when she is around Fin. With education, a career in art & a posh boyfriend, she has changed altogether after her break up.
Now after 6 years Fin wants to attend his best friend’s marriage who is also the brother of his ex girlfriend. He wants to make things right between them but becomes the #worldsworstboyfriend over a text he has sent to a friend.

The last thing Callie wants is getting back with Fin. She’s forced to spend the summer in her hometown. She can’t be away from the New York art world this long, so she comes up with the idea to turn the hottest pop culture event of the moment into a museum exhibition.

The two have every intention of avoiding each other—until the county judge sentences Fin to community service…helping her exploit the meme he’s trying to make go away.

My thoughts:

My rating for the book is 4 Stars.

When the story says “High school romance + Break up + second chances”, I’m all in. And Erika has executed the story good enough. This new series is amazing.

 

Fin is so dumb to realize the mistake till the end but he is one amazing BF. The parts where Fin tries to explain things to Callie are quite repetitive but the words/dialogues he has used are romantic enough to mend things between them. He hasn’t given up on their love.

“Find something good and real to tell her every day. Tell her you love her. Tell her she’s beautiful when she first wakes up.” 

The idea #wwb behind the museum(Oops! Exhibition) and the way both Callie & Fin does everything to make it success was good. That too within weeks. The people in Calamity are also helpful. It is too good to be true.

I give 5 stars for character development.

The story just doesn’t revolve around Fin & Callie but has also included wonderful relationships. After the breakup, Callie entirely blocks her family & friends out. I feel touched when she works on her relationship with her parents & nephew.

I give 4 stars for the romance part.

The way the story evolves and comes to the same point to make Fin realize his mistake is amazingly done.

“You and me.” His casual slouch belied the intensity of his tone. “We’re two particles that got split in half. And no matter how far away you are, I feel you.” He tapped his heart. “In here. You’re my sun. And you could be in New York or on Jupiter, and I’m still going to feel the pull. The closer you are, the stronger the pull.” He shrugged. “It is what it is.”

Characters:

If Fin is labelled as “world’s worst boyfriend” them I’m okay with choosing him. He is an athlete, an adventurer, caring, loving boyfriend one can ask for. Yes. He’s made a mistake but he is willing to make things right between him & Callie even if that will cost his image. And he calls Callie,”wild thing”. Isn’t that cute?

Callie on the other hand is sweet but I have found her naive & desperate. Her character is good except the part where she wants to cling Julian(an ex who has dumped her) for her fellowship program.

Theo is such a sweetheart. He is a shy boy. I like the way everyone connects with him through something. (Like Callie, I get connected with my niece through painting :D)

I give 4.5 Stars for the characters.

 

If you haven’t read any books of Erika’s like me you can always start with this one. It’s a warm, sweet, fun & romantic read, go for this!!

EXCERPT:

The sight of Fin Bowie standing in her foyer hit like opening the door to a surprise party. That disheveled hair and facial scruff, his big, muscular body and moody expression, made Callie’s heart flip over.

His black leather jacket hung open, exposing a white V-neck T-shirt. Faded jeans encased powerful thighs, the frayed hem bunching over black leather boots.

“Hey.” Did she have to sound so out of breath? Her heart pounded like she’d just been chased through the woods at night by a bear.

And it didn’t help that his gaze took a slow roll up her body, from her red-tipped toes to her bare legs—her upper thighs covered in ruffled cotton sleep shorts—to the pink long-sleeved T-shirt covering her chest. When he finally reached her eyes, his nostrils flared, and his expression turned carnal. A zing of awareness shot through her.

And then he smiled. And when Fin Bowie smiled it was like the finale of a fireworks display. “What’s up?” She hated the slight tremor in her voice. Worse, she hated the fuse he lit inside her.

“Let’s take a ride. I’ll wait for you in the truck.”

The last thing she wanted to do was get in that truck with him, but they were going to work together, so they had to get some things resolved. As she followed him out the door, she tried to reclaim her composure, but her paralyzed hands couldn’t grasp it and, as she climbed down the porch steps, the bridge of time collapsed, plunging her into freefall.

Images flew at her, immersing her in a tumult of sharp, vivid emotions.

The thrill of Fin unhinging the basement door she’d locked after he’d told her he couldn’t go to their junior prom because of his brother’s skiing competition. So much anger—no, outrage—expressed in a furious fight that had ended in desperate, raw sex.

The naughty pleasure of riding him in his truck, her fingers clutching the back of his seat, her hips slamming down and grinding. That wild imperative to get closer, deeper, to meld with him.

The boundless joy as they’d leapt off the cliff together, hands joined, her smile stretching so wide it felt stupid. Plummeting into ice cold water. And the indescribable happiness when they’d popped up and reached for each other—her legs wrapped around his waist, his arms cinching her tightly. She’d never felt anything like it since.

And the pure relief of slamming into the wall of Fin’s chest in the hallway after she’d found out Piglet, her little runt of a mutt, had been struck and killed by a minivan. The deep satisfaction, when she’d collapsed into his arms, of knowing her soul had a harbor, and it was Fin Bowie.

He’d been there for her more times than not, but the times he’d let her down stuck in her joints like burrs, reminding her with sharp twinges every time she so much as rolled over in bed.

Blocking out the good memories had been easy…until she’d come home. Here, they were everywhere. She breathed them in at night in her childhood bed, and she ate them for breakfast at the kitchen table.

Fortunately, when she closed the front door behind her, the cool mountain air rushed over her skin and snapped her back to the moment. The hints of sage from the surrounding meadow and smoke from the town’s nightly bonfire woke up her senses.

It was okay to remember. Important, actually, because she’d never resolved anything. She’d just thrown herself into work, into survival mode. Finals, projects, hurrying to the diner, the bar, racing to get errands done in stolen moments…all of it had kept her on the run.

She never would’ve stopped, would she? If Julian hadn’t dumped her, forcing her to live at home for the summer, she’d still be on the lam from a past that demanded reconciliation.

She’d take this ride with Fin, confront the memories, and then she could finally let them go. Let him go.

She’d finally be free.

Book Review – THREE TO RIDE by Lexi Blake

Scenic winter mountain landscape in Canadian Rockies

Re-released in a second edition with two new chapters and additional new content.

Story:

After a single date with a psycho cop, Rachel’s life is never been the same. He has disturbed her entire life & she is a woman on run since then.

Bliss is a strange little town, filled with artists, nudists, and the occasional conspiracy nut. It’s a good place to start over. And then she meets a cowboy- Max, who has a twin – Rye, a cop. They share everything, even their woman. Now they want Rachel.

Did the menage thing work? How the boys come to know about Rachel’d past? Did Rachel finally stop running & fight for herself? Read the book to know the rest. 😀

Young sensual & beauty blonde woman pose on wooden background.

My review:

I always like insta-love. So its a treat for me. The love Max and Rye have for Rachel made me woo them. Both Max & Rye are totally amazing in their own way. They feel the same emotions, they share the pain. The author seems to side Max as he has more part in the story than Rye had. Rachel’s character is portrayed well from the start with the ups & downs and with how she has faced the psycho in the end.

Outdoors portrait of beautiful young blond woman.

I like everyone in Bliss. It is a strange town with strange & good people in it. Be it the restaurant owner, the man who is ready to fight the alien, sister of the twins, friends of twins, everyone is amazing in their own way. I like to read both the protagonist’s POV and the author has made me happy by giving me that!!

Everyone except the psycho cop is good, that’s seems to be a bit unrealistic. And the entire town is okay with everything, be it the nudists or the menage thing.

The entire story is hot & sexy. If you are an erotica reader who enjoys a menage which also has a good story, go for it.

Having resolved to live a life without romantic love, Nikki rejects Luke. Luke can sense that she needs some time so he walks away, vowing to find a way to her heart.

Three months after she pushed him away, Nikki decides to take a chance on Luke. He is patient and understanding while she struggles to allow herself to be vulnerable with him and to find the courage to trust he won’t hurt her. But when Nikki finally hands her heart of to him, Luke shatters her world with the truth.

“Hey, babe.”

I glanced over at him and couldn’t help but feel turned on. Luke looked incredible in his suit. I didn’t try to hide the fact that I checked him out and appreciated what I saw. With a grin on my face, I responded, “Hey, hottie.”

The corner of Luke’s mouth tipped up with a grin as he closed the distance between us and stood beside me. My eyes went back to the dance floor.

“I can’t believe Stone’s dancing,” I started. “I wonder how Monroe managed to convince him.”

Luke let out a noise that sounded a bit like a grunt mixed with a laugh.

“What’s that supposed to mean?” I asked.

“Monroe didn’t convince him, Nikki.”

I turned my attention back to Luke and waited for further explanation. He gave it to me.

“He loves her,” Luke offered, nonchalantly.

This offered little clarification considering I already knew that Stone loved her. Luke recognized this and went on. “He knows she loves to dance. When you love someone, you don’t need anyone to convince you to do the things that you know will make them happy.”

I gave a gentle nod of my head, but said nothing otherwise. Almost instantly, I regretted my decision to stay quiet because what Luke said next was neither something I was prepared to hear nor was it a conversation I wanted to have with him.

“Are you ever going to let someone make you happy?”

I jerked back at his unexpected question, but quickly recovered and challenged, “Who says I’m not already happy?”

“I don’t need to be a rocket scientist to know that you aren’t.”

Shit.

I needed to engage my defense mechanisms pronto.

“Yes, I am!”

He shook his head, a small smile tugging at his lips momentarily before he went serious again.

“I won’t lie,” he started. “On the surface, you put on a good show. Deep down, I can see how much you’re hurting.”

My body tightened.

“Excuse me?”

I was being defensive because I had nothing else.

“I saw you standing here watching your best friends out there,” he continued as pointed to the dance floor. “You’re happy for them; there’s not a doubt in my mind about that. But it’s there, Nikki. Behind the tough exterior that you show to the rest of the world, there’s a big part of you that wants to have exactly what they have.”

My throat was tight when I clipped, “You have no idea what you are talking about.”

“I do, though. And I think it’s only fair right now that I let you in on a little secret, baby girl,” he shared with so much promise in his voice. He shifted closer to me, his face within inches of mine, and assured, “I’m going to make sure you get it.”

I wanted to push him away and scream at him. I wanted him to not share any secrets with me. Mostly, I wanted to walk away and never look back.

Since I was at my best friend’s wedding and I didn’t want to do anything to put a damper on her day or make a spectacle of myself, I didn’t do any of that. Instead, I turned it around on him. “Why would you ever set yourself up to fail?”

“There are two things you should know about me, Nikki. First, I won’t fail. Second, and most importantly, even if I thought there was a chance I could fail I already explained why I would do this.”

“Considering this is the first time I’m hearing this from you, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that you definitely have not explained why you would do this.”

He grinned at me.

“I’m pretty sure I shared with you why Stone is dancing with Monroe, didn’t I?”

I dipped my chin and restated what he had a few moments ago, “Yeah, because he loves her.”

Luke didn’t say anything. His eyes just burned into mine.

Then, it hit me. Like a ton of bricks settling on my shoulders, I felt the truth of what he was admitting filter into my brain and seize the breath in my lungs.

My lips parted, mostly in shock, but also in an effort to come back with some witty reply. Unfortunately, I had nothing. So, I snapped them closed and let myself try to process the news he had delivered. Once again, my mouth opened, but nothing came out.

Luke stepped closer to me, wrapped an arm around my waist, and leaned in to kiss my cheek. The touch of his lips burned my skin, but I had no chance to deal with that since those lips went to my ear, where he whispered, “You don’t have to say anything now. I can wait.”

I hated myself for what I did next, but I wouldn’t fall into this with him. I brought my drink up to my lips, took a sip, and after setting it back down on the bar, I insisted, “You’ll be waiting forever.”

At that, I walked away from Luke. I didn’t turn back to look at him because I knew if I did I’d probably cry. Luke was a good guy; I had just been a colossal bitch to him.

About the Author:

A.K. Evans is a married mother of two boys residing in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania. After graduating from Lafayette College in 2004 with two degrees (one in English and one in Economics & Business), she pursued a career in the insurance and financial services industry. Not long after, Evans realized the career was not for her. She went on to manage her husband’s performance automotive business and drive the shop race cars for the next thirteen years. While the business afforded her freedoms she wouldn’t necessarily have had in a typical 9-5 job, after eleven years she was no longer receiving personal fulfillment from her chosen career path. Following many discussions, lots of thought, and tons of encouragement, Andrea decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer.

Between her day job, writing, and homeschooling her two boys, Evans is left with very little free time. When she finds scraps of spare time, she enjoys reading, doing yoga, watching NY Rangers hockey, dancing, and vacationing with her family. Andrea, her husband, and her children are currently working on taking road trips to visit all 50 states (though, Alaska and Hawaii might require flights).

Read an excerpt from GLAM SQUAD & GROOMSMEN

It was one thing to fantasize about touching Spencer.

It was quite another to actually be doing it.

I love my job.

“How does the jacket feel?” she forced herself to ask as she continued to smooth imaginary wrinkles. “Is it too tight? Too loose? Can you move comfortably?”

Spencer’s expression was serious as he took in his reflection. Stepping back, she let him move his arms and shoulders to get the feel of the suit jacket. It looked good on him. Really good on him. But then again, Penny had a feeling that anything would look good on him. He was tall and lean, she noticed, with just the right amount of muscle – he’d filled out in all the best ways in the last ten years. And as much as she hated to admit it, he was just…

Perfect, she inwardly sighed.

“It feels all right,” he said, his voice deep and just a little gruff. “Can we try the next size up? I think it’s just a little snug in the shoulders.”

“No problem,” she replied softly as she went to pull another jacket from the rack. After taking all of his measurements – neck, sleeve, waist, outseam, and shoulders – she had been fairly confident that she picked the right size for him. But if he wasn’t one-hundred percent comfortable, who was she to argue?

Stepping over to him, she helped him remove the jacket he had on before handing him the new one. He was mesmerizing to watch. Some guys could come in and try on jackets and it would register zero on her radar, but watching Spencer Buchanan try on a jacket was borderline porn for her right now.

Quickly, she turned away, hung up the jacket and placed it to the side in case he wanted it back for comparison. She seriously needed to compose herself before going any further. If she could, she would have stepped outside to fan herself or grab something cold to drink because it suddenly felt very warm in the shop.

Pull yourself together!

Stepping back up on the platform with him, she began her tasks of smoothing and gently tugging and adjusting and helping him get the true feel of the garment. She wanted to smack herself because she knew she was being a little excessive in the touching department but…she couldn’t seem to help herself.

“How about this one?” she asked, smiling at him in the mirror and hoping he didn’t hear the slight tremor in her voice. “Is this one more comfortable?”

“This one definitely feels more comfortable,” he said, interrupting her thoughts. “I’m not crazy about these trousers, though.”

Her heart kicked a little and she felt a slight flutter in her belly at those words. It was one thing to be able to touch his back, his arms, his shoulders…but to be kneeling down and running her hands over his legs and waist? Well…it had been a little awkward when she was measuring him a few minutes ago and she wasn’t sure she’d survive it a second time.

Clearing her throat, she forced herself to focus. “All of your measurements will go to our warehouse and everything will be custom-tailored for you. The inventory we have here is just the basics, so they won’t necessarily fit you like this.”

He nodded but didn’t really look at her; he was still studying his reflection. “I think the measurements on the outseam weren’t quite right. I’d like to try a pair of different shoes and then measure again if that’s all right with you.”

Um…yes please, she thought and immediately wanted to smack herself. Honestly, she had no idea if any of this was the norm for getting a tuxedo fitting – she’d never had to do quite so much before, but right now she couldn’t find the will to stop any of it.

“No problem,” Penny replied. “Would you like to go pick out another pair?”

For a few minutes, Spencer walked around and tried on shoes while Penny made notes in his file. When he stepped back onto the platform, she was ready with her measuring tape. Standing to his left, she carefully kneeled – not an easy feat in her navy pencil skirt and heels. Doing her best to stay balanced, she carefully measured the outseam with minimal amounts of running her hand along his muscled calf. Standing slowly, she went and did the same on the right.

This time when she went to stand, Spencer stopped her.

“Isn’t it customary to measure the inseam as well?”

Oh. Right. The inseam.

“Um…yes. Yes. You’re right. Sorry about that,” she nervously stammered. “I’m not fully familiar with all the procedures.” With a steadying breath, she moved until she was in front of him. “Can you…um…just widen your stance a little?”

His gaze was a little intense as he looked down at her. Doing as she requested, he asked, “Like this?”

Was it wrong that she could barely remember how to speak because she was eye level with…well…what was a rather impressive part of him?

“That’s fine,” she murmured and did her best to hold the tape measure at the top of his inseam as she ran her other hand down his leg. By the time she got that measurement and did his other leg, she was practically sweating.

Mentally, she was about to congratulate herself on doing the job without embarrassing herself, but as she went to straighten, she lost her balance and cried out as she felt herself about to fall. “Oh!”

Spencer quickly swooped down and banded an arm around her waist to catch her and pulled her to her feet. Chest to chest, her heart racing, Penny looked up at him and knew she was blushing.

“You okay?” he asked, a small smile tugging at his lips.

She couldn’t speak. Up close, he was even more handsome than she wanted to admit. His jaw was rough with a day’s worth of stubble. His lips looked incredibly soft, and when she looked into his eyes, she noticed just a hint of gold in those clear blue depths. Swallowing hard, she nodded.

But he didn’t release her right away. And Penny certainly didn’t feel any rush to move.

It was kind of the perfect moment, she thought. She had no idea what was going on outside, but inside, it was just the two of them and she felt like her heart was beating just a little too hard. Hopefully Spencer would think she was just nervous from almost falling and not from having her hands all over his inseam!

One minute passed, then two – at least that’s what it felt like – when she finally took a step back. His grip didn’t release easily and it was a thrill to think that he was as reluctant to let her go as she was to move away. “Um…thanks,” she said softly, before walking over to the desk to mark down his measurements. “So…I think that’s everything. I have all of your measurements noted and on file. Martin will have them here for you whenever Brett comes in with the rest of the groomsmen.”

Her voice was slightly high-pitched and shaky but…dammit, he made her nervous. Normally, Penny was extremely confident – especially at her job. And yet the last thirty minutes with Spencer had reduced her to a quivering mass of hormones!

Again.

There. She said it. She was nervous being around him and beyond turned on.
