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.
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.
If you normally read my reviews then you know I like to compare all I liked versus what didn’t work for me in a book. But, I really don’t have tons to say about this book. What I can say beyond the shadow of a doubt, though, is that this book is hilarious! I picked this up after a very dark read and it was everything I needed!
I wouldn’t recommend this one for the romance because it falls a bit short for me with all the attention on the humorous scenes. With all of the comedy you don’t get a lot of depth. But, I picked this up for the humor and it definitely delivered! 4 stars!
Have you read Fluffy or any of Julia Kent’s other books? What did you think? Have a recommendation for me?
