Will their romance survive when the cameras stop rolling?
Action film star Adam Feltworth’s last movie flopped big time, yet he’s offered one last chance to star in a romantic drama alongside the up-and-coming actress, Sara Leigh. Adam has never filmed sexy scenes with a full-figured woman, but he’s been warned—it’s this or retirement.
Throughout her career, Sarah has portrayed the fat, supportive best friend. With her breakout movie, Chemistry, she hopes to finally bring the pleasingly plump heroine into the mainstream spotlight. Knowing Adam’s history of preferring svelte beauties, she doesn’t want him for the part.
When Adam first holds Sarah during the screen test, a spark ignites that neither one expects. Now Adam’s problem is bigger than simply filming a hit movie to save his floundering career. He needs to prove to Sarah that she’s the only woman he desires…both on and off the screen.

“What scene do you want to do?” she asked, reaching for her script, which was beside her bed.
“Actually, I was wondering if we could just practice kissing. I kiss you, you kiss me, and we get used to the feel of each other.”
She swallowed the lump in her throat and let out a sigh. “Okay, I can do that.”
They placed their scripts beside each other on the bed. She licked her lips and forced herself to stare into his eyes.
Sarah burst out laughing. “That’s not something you should say when you’re about to kiss someone.”
He laughed along with her, and she liked the sound. Adam took her hand, locking their fingers together. He leaned in close, and his breath fanned across her face. “Don’t flinch.”
“Why would I flinch?”
“You’ve tensed up. I’m not a monster, Sarah. Just an asshole.”
“I think you’re getting out of your asshole tendencies.”
She gasped as he closed the distance, pressing a kiss to her lips. It was friendly, kind of like kissing a relative. He pulled away, and she bit her lip, staring into his dark eyes.
“How was that?”
“Fine.” Her voice came out as a squeak, which made him chuckle.
“Now, you kiss me.”
Taking a deep breath, she pressed her lips to his and pulled back. “There. We’re done.”
“Have you ever actually kissed a guy?”
“I did a lot of kissing for this role. People would think I was the kissing whore.”
