Maggie, a pastry chef, has lusted after Jake for a long time. He comes in everyday for sweets. He's asked her out dozens of times, but she can't believe he is serious. After all, who would want to date a woman who looks like she ate a few too many of the confections she makes.
When Maggie's friend Lisa comes in asking her a big favor the last thing Maggie wants to do is get dressed up and go to a singles ball, but she'll do it for Lisa.
Jake is desperate. He's tried to get Maggie to go out with him and she always makes a joke about his offer. This is his last attempt. Of course he's said that to himself before. With the help of Maggie's friend Lisa, Jake hopes she'll finally take the leap and go on a date with him.
Nice erotic short story for a quick afternoon read. In a way I like the fact that this one is short. They way the author doesn't spend so much time with Maggie lamenting her weight through the whole book.
When Maggie Jones lets her best friend talk her into attending the annual charity mystery single's ball to help her friend out of a jam, she never imagined she would end up paired with the most handsome, eligible man at the ball. Unfortunately, he was also the man that she had secretly adored for over a year. What chance did an overweight pastry chef have with a hunk like Jake Rawlins?
Jake Rawlins wants Maggie Jones, but he can't get her to take his advances seriously. He's been hinting around for a year. Now he's ready to take drastic measures to get Maggie to notice him.
Will Maggie realize that her Prince Charming has finally arrived at the ball, or will she miss out on having a man who truly wants her exactly the way she is just because of her insecurities?
This is a short story erotic romance.
