Plus-sized heroine, sexy nerd hero, and handcuffs.
Love is all about trust. So when Eva discovers a receipt for racy lingerie several sizes too small for her in her lover’s coat pocket, she’s determined to learn the truth, no matter how much it might break her heart.
Embarrassed by his family’s thieving ways, Kevin is wary of telling Eva about them, knowing from past mistakes it could jeopardize any possibility for a long lasting relationship. He vows this time will be different. Besides, what Eva doesn’t know won’t hurt her.
Add in a kleptomaniac with a penchant for red and black lace, a best friend willing to loan out her navy leather thigh high boots, and one seriously sexy nerd who may or may not be cheating on Eva, and it’s only a matter of time when Eva gets even.

Food critic Melinda Warbottom is constantly on a diet, not that it ever seems to help her waistline. With her younger sister’s wedding only a few months away, she knows it will take more than willpower to fit into her bridesmaid dress. Her best friend suggests they try a weight loss spa with miracle results more than 2,000 miles away. Mel jokes about making it a road trip, never expecting her bestie to take her seriously. Eating their way across America, Melinda chronicles the journey in her syndicated foodie column, along with ratings and weigh in.
When the women reach their destination, they discover the spa is part weight loss boot camp, part indulgent luxury, with two very distinct sets of rules for each section’s guests.
Chef Steven caters to all of the spa’s patrons, but when he sees a beautiful, curvaceous woman eyeing his sopaipilla, he doesn’t suspect she’s a guest from the weight loss camp, or that the fried treat he offers is a temptation she can’t resist.
Mel suspects both Steven and his honey filled delicacy are addictive taboos, but one little bite couldn’t hurt…right?
