Can two close friends get on the same page in this Brown Sugar meets Love Jones interracial New Adult romance!
While her friends curse the day she signed them up for the televised competition, it becomes increasingly hard for Melissa to ignore Nathan’s flirtatious smile as they work alongside each other.
The singing contest could be Nathan’s last chance to make his dreams come true.
Nathan has one shot, and he’s not about to waste it on a girl he’s already bedded. But Melissa isn’t his usual type. She’s his best friend’s sister, and his fiercest competition, so she should be off limits. Except, he can’t resist the way she makes him laugh, or forget the way she felt in his arms.
As a recovering perfectionist who hasn’t been on a date in five years, finding love (especially at the gym) is harder than she thought. Faced with beginning her twenty-sixth year of life insecure and living in the home of Hollywood where men and women either ignore or insult her curvy existence, Katherine decides to make dating her bitch. She’s not changing her curvy body. She won’t put down the dessert. And she isn’t going to apologize for any of it.
Her first night out ends nothing like she’d planned. When a flirty and rugged New Yorker asks for her phone number, Katherine freezes. She’s ready to give up before heartbreak happens. That is, until she meets the polyamorous, fairy-godmother-wanna-be, Hunter. The self proclaimed Queen of Pleasure coaches Katherine on badass dating etiquette. Hunter’s first rule? Don’t fall in love. The second rule? Perfection doesn’t exist.
But when a bet with a sexy and sensitive music teacher changes her perspective on the dating game, Katherine learns that breaking badass rule #1 before loving every inch of herself might spell trouble. On the other hand, breaking rules might be exactly what Katherine needs to discover the true power of a woman’s body, the sugary sweetness of indulgence, and whether saying yes to her dream life against the wishes of advice-slinging friends will lead to heartache or harmony.
A painstakingly honest tale about the struggle of learning how to love yourself in a world that expects the opposite, Sugar & Other Luxuries is a sometimes steamy, sometimes funny story about accepting the things that seem imperfect about ourselves and the people we love.
