Opposites force you outside your comfort zone. They make you try things that you would never have done in a million years- say rock climbing, a 5 K or adopting a pet.
You want to please them. You don't want to look like a sissy or a wuss. It's exciting to spend time with them and well... let's just leave the sex to your imagination. :)
This spark is what I love about Lori Sizemore's latest release, Exactly Like You. Her two main characters are opposites who are brought together by the mysterious Mr. Heart. However, it's up to the couple to find that middle ground and to see the true love in front of them.
An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.
Former social worker Roxie Fisher believes she’s cursed to never find happiness and an invitation to Cupid’s Café isn’t going to change her situation. All the same, against her better judgment, she gives it a try. What else does she have to lose?
After the death of his wife, accountant-turned-firefighter Aidan Craig, can’t stop taking ridiculous risks and never turns down a dare. So an invitation to Cupid’s Café is an offer he can’t refuse. What he doesn’t expect is to meet the social worker who helped him through the darkest days of his life. Now she’s the one struggling, and he’s compelled to help.
The two experience an immediate attraction, but Aidan swore to never become involved in another relationship, and Roxie can’t imagine daredevil Aidan being interested in a boring, cat-rescuer like her.
Can Roxie find the simple joy of taking a risk? Is Aidan willing to risk his heart? Or will they both lose out on a chance at true love?
Dropping his hands, because he was playing with fire now, he took her by the shoulders and pushed her back gently so he could look into her face. Her pupils were huge, filled with desire.
“I’m not sorry I did that.” He rested his forehead on hers. “I want you.”
She tilted her head down and placed a kiss on his neck. “I want you, too.”
“I’m just pretty sure it’s a bad idea.” He pulled away to study her, releasing her from his grasp. He didn’t want to hurt her.
“Yeah, totally. Same.” She nodded as if to reinforce her words.
Abruptly, she stood up and walked to the edge of the camp, her arms crossed in front of her. After a minute, she put her hands behind her and hooked her bra back together. The flash of skin he glimpsed only inflamed him further.
He had to get hold of himself. They’d been here a day. Not even a whole day, and he was already all over her. That wasn’t why he’d brought her here, and he needed to get a grip on himself. “Let’s get some sleep.”
“Sure. I’m tired.” She turned back to face him. Were her cheeks red? He couldn’t tell in the moonlight and she was too far from the fire now.
“Yeah, and we’ve got a long day ahead of us tomorrow.”
“Right.” She headed to the tent at a brisk pace. Aidan watched her go with a sigh. He’d upset her. Her short responses made it clear he’d hurt her feelings, which he’d never intended. And damn, but he wanted to touch her.
This multi-author series focuses on protagonists struggling with real-life issues that often get swept under the rug. With Cupid’s Café, these issues find representation in the characters struggling to conquer their own problems while trying to carve a future for themselves.
From cops to artists, or social workers to photographers, Mr. Heart ensures these lost souls who believe themselves undeserving of love reconnect with their fated match.
Each couple embarks on their journey at Cupid’s Cafe, but the rest is up to them: whether damage wins or they find true love in the end.
