Publisher Description

I thought this new job would be the fresh start I desperately needed. I didn’t expect the woman who broke my heart to be my new coworker. 

Do you believe in love at first sight? 

I didn’t. Not until the night I looked up from my book and saw Lucy Dillard sitting in the same noisy bar as me with her nose buried in her own book. 

It felt like we were made for each other. When I fell for Lucy, I fell hard. Everything was perfect between us—until she suddenly dumped me. 

The worst part was she wouldn’t even tell me why.

Now, not only am I stuck staring at my ex’s face in the office all day long, but she’s also the one assigned to train me. As if there’s not already enough tension between us, she thinks I’m here to steal the promotion she’s been promised.

But the more we’re forced to work together, the better I understand her. And the more I realize how much we kept hidden from each other. Now that I know what Lucy’s had to go through and how different her world is from mine? I’m more in love with her than ever.

I just need to convince the girl who got away that I’m worth a second chance—and pray she doesn’t break my heart all over again.

CREAM AND PUNISHMENT is a swoony, full-length second chance romance packed with small town feels and messy family shenanigans. Featuring an unforgettable menstrual cup mishap, a nerdy book-loving heroine who’s in over her head, and a cinnamon roll hero with a spicy side, it stands alone and promises an HEA ending.

Cream and Punishment Made Me Smile

As usual, I enjoyed this book and love the title. It is the second in the series about a couple who dated and broke up because they weren’t on the same page. They found themselves working together and the magic happens. It is a romance guys this isn’t really a spoiler. Throw in parent-adult child issues, sibling relationships and rivalries, family secrets coming to light, and figuring out adulting and that covers the book. It is a lot to throw in, but I thought the author tackled some of these issues with insight while still finding things for us to laugh about. Maybe it will help somebody with establishing more boundaries with a family member, letting go of doing things s/he hates to gain a parent’s approval, or raising a hand and asking for help. They can be the best books of all. I voluntarily submitted this review after reading an advanced complementary copy of this book.

Good romance

Great story with characters you can't help but love and root for and a storyline that has plenty of obstacles to overcome before they find their happily ever after.
