An all-new STANDALONE from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent
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.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Awkward. That pretty much sums up the meet-cute in Julia Kent’s crushworthy modern romance. Mallory, who earns a living making properties for sale look Insta-ready, is Ivy League smart, but somehow she accidentally signs on to be a fluffer on the set of an adult film that’s being shot in the house of a guy she’s secretly pined for since high school. As Mal fumbles her way out of one gaffe and into the next, tension builds and sparks fly. Kent balances swoon-inducing moments with racy humor, and the playful details—particularly the A+ text and email interludes—make this novel a delicious riot.

Flawed, but enjoyable read
The setup is cute, naive Mallory answers an ad in Craigslist for a “fluffer.” She thinks it is for a person who stages houses for sale (it was a term used in that industry), but of course, it is for a job on the set of a porn movie. When the Will, the son of the owner of the house shows up with the police, Mallory is just starting to realize they don’t want her for decorating skills. Of course, Will was her crush from High School, and not only does he convince the police not to arrest her, he hires her at the family real-estate business. The book was pretty funny, but there were times that Mallory’s friends’ witty banter was more snarky than funny. Also, while Will was the perfect book boyfriend, Mallory was a little harder to warm up to. Mallory was not only naive, she seemed to be stuck at the emotional level of a fourteen year old. Overall, a flawed, but enjoyable read.
Not worth the time
Awfully boring. Mallory is annoying and has random thoughts throughout the book. They added nothing to the story and felt like the author was just trying to fill the page. It took me forever to finish this book because I couldn’t get into it. The characters were underdeveloped and there interactions with each other had no substance.
I couldn’t even finish this book. Tried wayyyy too hard to be funny and the character was unrealistically naive. I know books are fictional but this was a bit much. Can I have my 99¢ back?
