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.
This book was surprisingly delightful and gets right in your face and makes you want to be part of this group of ladies.
It’s original and fresh taking a small town and giving a 21st taste with bad cliches and so much more. Mal is hopeless and I have to love her. She isn’t what I expected when I found out her credentials but it made sense when you take into her count her hopeless luck at social lives. But her she had a sharp mouth when it mattered.
So when Will saves her bacon literally and gets her out of her rut.
Being a Fluff isnt’ so bad anymore with Will in the equation. Will is charming and put together the total opposite of her. But they were so perfect for each other.
I enjoyed the snappy writing with the sex innuendo that were so perfect for these two
after they re connected. It’s a story of miss opportunities and working through everything to find common ground. Both of them are fun characters and I enjoyed this fun contemporary read (
