Cream and Punishment is the next book in Susannah Nix’s King Family series. Tanner and Lucy both work for the creamery, although in different departments. They dated at one time, but Lucy broke Tanner’s heart when he asked for more. However, when they end up working in the same department, they have to find a way to work together.
This was another enjoyable read by Susannah Nix. I’ve really enjoyed her King Family series and this second-chance romance was another hit! Both characters had depth and showed growth throughout the story. Lucy’s family was hard to read at times, but I like that Lucy stayed true to her character and worked through what she needed to in order to be true to herself. Overall, I thoroughly Cream and Punishment and, as always, I can’t wait for the next Nix book!
ABOUT THE BOOK
She’s not just my ex-girlfriend. She’s my new coworker.
I knew Lucy Dillard was The One the first time I met her. Yes, I’m enough of a sap to believe in love at first sight. When I fell for Lucy, I fell hard. Everything was great between us—until the moment she dumped me.
Now I just want to forget about her. Instead, I’m stuck staring at her face all day. But I need this job, so I’ll find a way to be civil and professional.
There’s just one small problem: I’m nowhere close to being over her.
First, we were lovers. Then enemies. Now we’re trying to be friends.
I didn’t set out to break Tanner King’s heart, but you know what they say about the road to hell.
I’ve got too many responsibilities and no room in my life for love. I can deal with Tanner’s resentment until he starts working at the desk directly across from mine. Obviously, a truce of some kind is required. We’re both grownups. We can handle this situation like professionals.
There’s only one thing threatening this fragile peace we’ve negotiated: all these inconvenient feelings I apparently still have for him.
Cream and Punishment is book #2 in the King Family series set in the small town of Crowder, Texas, home of the King’s Creamery ice cream company. Each book is a standalone, full-length contemporary romance that follows one of the six King siblings as they find and fight for love.
