Minx has a problem – sensual dreams about Holden, a regular at the pizzeria where she works part time, have her in a state of constant arousal. Unfortunately, Holden doesn’t seem to know Minx is alive, much less hot for him.
Shy, but desperate to gain Holden’s attention, Minx comes up with a foolproof plan to get him to notice her. Thanks to Love Stinks, her webzine, and her fascination with people’s reactions to specific scents and foods, she decides to conduct a little experiment on aphrodisiacs with Holden as the test subject. And just so no one feels left out, she’ll document her results online to potentially help others. If the aphrodisiac works, she’ll be helping mankind; if not, Holden will never know a thing.
Holden spends all his time studying at university, while also taking a brutal course in bartending to meet his goal of running his own business. His only downtime is at a casual pizzeria where lately he’s noticed something different about the pizza. But a hot little dish of a waitress in a short, tight skirt has him too distracted to care. Between her fiery red hair and her luminous green eyes, he’s completely smitten and can’t seem to concentrate on his studies.
Holden is everything that Minx fantasized and more. But now that Minx has what she always wanted, will the ingredients in her sauce prove to be the recipe for love or disaster.
