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 naked 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.

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent writes romantic comedy with an edge. From billionaires to BBWs to new adult rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every contemporary romance she writes. Unlike Shannon from Shopping for a Billionaire, she did not meet her husband after dropping her phone in a men’s room toilet (and he isn’t a billionaire). She lives in New England with her husband and three kids in a household where Julia apparently is the only one who possesses the gene necessary to change empty toilet paper rolls.

This book should come with a warning label: don’t drink anything while reading this!!
Fluffy was a hilarious romantic comedy, about missed connections and second chances.
When Mallory applied to a job she found on an ad, little did she know that was going to cross path with her former high school crush, Will. She staged home for a living and when they saw that someone were looking for a professional fluffer… well let just say that the following events or mishaps leading to their encounter was quite the read. I was already sure it would have been fun and he author seemed to have a blast while writing it and it showed. It was kinda memorable to me.
Will and Mallory went to the same school, she had a unrequited crush on him and they separated ways. While the others left this town, she stayed, being happy in her life, never letting people define what she was. She seemed to be a bit off the record from the others. She did what people didn’t expect her to be. With her two best friends they made a hilarious group, with no filter, colorful, tight-knit family in every situations.
Will might have shown at some point that he was interested by Mallory years ago but haven’t really acted on it, and mostly she was pretty clueless about it. Many years later, the magic was still operating and when she needed to keep her distance, he came closer. I adored this character, melting perfectly with Mallory’s eccentric side.
But mostly, I adored the fire they made. The banter was just exquisite and delightfully refreshing.
The whole thing forms an explosive cocktail and hilarious. Only Julia Kent could write some awkward situations in a humorous way. I am such a fan!
Fluffy is a story to be enjoyed without restraint… you can’t go wrong with that one!
