Blurb
An all-new STANDALONE from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent
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.
Oh, man…
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 a naked 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.

Excerpt

 

“I can’t tonight. I have a date,” I blurt out, remembering David. The dating app. The
asshole who isn’t an asshole.
Yet. I haven’t met him, so that judgment remains withheld.
“A date?” Will asks, intrigued.
“Yes. A date. You know, that thing where you go out with someone who has no intention of really getting to know you and you spend the entire time eating bread that
doesn’t taste as good as your date claims and trying to decide whether to initiate rescue-text sequences with your mom.”
“That’s your idea of a date?”
“That is my actual experience of every date I’ve had since college.”
“You’re dating the wrong guys.” He holds my gaze for just a little too long. I look away.
“I have to keep fishing in the pond if I ever want to catch a different one.”
“If that’s the way you talk to your dates, I am beginning to understand why they all turn out so badly.”
“Hey!”
“What?”
“Don’t accuse me of being a bad date. I’m a great date! I Google the guy in advance
and read his LinkedIn profile. I make sure I don’t wear super-tall heels in case he lied about his height on his dating profile. I pretend to care about all his hobbies and don’t reveal that I’m secretly tallying all the micro-aggressions he’s sending my way during appetizers and wine. And if he makes it to dessert, well–” I falter.
“You never make it to dessert, do you?” Will asks, eyebrows up. He drops them quickly, wincing.
“I–well–it’s not that I don’t. He doesn’t!”
“He ditches you?”
“No! No! It’s just that he always has a thing.”
“A thing?”
“A work emergency. Or a dog with a twisted bowel. Or a grandma in the ER.”
“How many guys used the twisted-canine-intestine thing?”
“Three.” I sit down and sag against his teenage desk, elbows sliding forward, fingers deep in my hair. “I looked it up. There’s an entire subreddit devoted to inventive ways to get out of a bad date.”
“And yet here you are.” He leans against the edge of his desk. “Trying again.”
“I’m a masochist.”
His eyes gleam. “Maybe you should start your dates with that line. ‘Hi. I’m Mallory
Monahan. I’m a masochist.’ You’d definitely make it to dessert.”
My Review

I enjoyed this book so much! After reading Little Miss Perfect I HAD to know how the story of Will and Mallory went!!!! I loved their “mis-connection” in high school and it left me with soooo many questions!!!

Mallory is so much like me it’s scary! We are both way naive, smart, work in interior design and are plus size. Her little mishap in the beginning made me laugh sooo hard because I had NO CLUE what a fluffer was! I adored her character so much because we are similar, but I think that Julia wrote her character so that you couldn’t help but fall in love with her. She is such a smart person, she’s funny without meaning to be and she’s so straight forward. She’s such an amazing lead female!!! Bringing Will back in the picture was equally entertaining with how he was brought in. I loved that she fell over her own feet because of him. Having a female lead who is not perfect is my favorite! Mallory and Will have the most amazing second chance romance, even if they didn’t realize it was “second chance.” I also loved how Mallory was so afraid to get hurt, but everything in her life was pointing her back at Will.

Now Will, I was pretty mad at him in Little Miss Perfect, because he didn’t strike when he could have and he didn’t really try hard to fix it. I was SUPER excited to see him redeem himself though!!! I loved his character in this. Between him being funny, trying to help Mallory and trying to woo her at the same time, he was pretty darn perfect. He was so determined to win her over and make her see herself as she really is, that you couldn’t help but fall in love with him too! Then we have the parents trying to do things on the sly, the dancing fiasco and so many other moments. It was just really funny to watch these two! Speaking of funny, holy crap was this book funny! I was laughing from beginning to end!!

And of course we have to talk about the secondary characters. Fiona and Perky WERE PERFECT!! These two were the best friends a girl could ask for! Their characters were the best with their support and their comedy. Add in all of this to a high school reunion, MAGIC! All of the pieces to this beautiful puzzle were complete because of them.

I can’t wait to see what Julia has lined up next with Perky!
