Fluffy By Julia Kent
Narrated by Erin Mallon
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.
I really like Julia Kent, so I was excited to get to listen to one of her books. This book is funny and light. This author has a great way of writing over the top situations in a way that is both believable and ridiculous. That is what makes this author so great. I really like the relationship between Will and Mallory, from the high school crush all the way to the HEA. Will was sexy and endearing. It was very easy to like him. I had more of a love/hate opinion of Mallory. I had a really hard time at the beginning of the book with her being extremely clueless. That part of her personality went just too far. I had a hard time liking her after that. She did have some redeeming qualities by the end of the book.
There were some amazing secondary characters. I can’t wait to hear some of their stories. The narrator for this book was fantastic! She brings so much personality and emotion to the book. She was a delight to listen to. I’ll definitely be looking for more books that she narrates.
