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

Two disappointing, I am about to stop reading chic-lit stars!

When I read the blurb, I thought I found something like Wallbanger and Beautiful Bastard kinda comedy/ chick lit gem so I can relax a little bit and laugh when I’m sipping my Chardonnay!

As soon as I start this book and meet the heroine Mallory, 28, high IQ’d ( I have real doubts about that because she takes fluffing gig and she thought it was about pumping pillows and changing the places of furnitures! Come on! Use your fingers to goo

I loved it! The plot was original and fresh, the characters were real, the writing brilliant and of course it was funny as hell. But it was more than just a rom-com the romance was true and oh so sweet.

Julia Kent is one of those authors that has been on my radar for the longest time. I’m so happy I finally picked up one of her books. Fluffy was a super cute and fun read and I’m looking forward to picking up more in this series!

Mallory is desperate for a job and the one she takes (off Craigs List) gets her in a bit of a pickle. And brings her high school crush, Will, back into her life ten years later. Will and Mallory meet again under crazy circumstances, but Mallory ends up working

It was a little bit cute and fluffy,

But...

The heroine was so unbearable sometimes. Not because she is so naive. Or because she is so stupid sometimes. Nope. I tolerated all that. Then I started to lose count on how many times she ran away! Seriously, whenever something happen that she doesn’t like or not prepared for SHE JUST LITERALLY RUN AWAY. And then Will -our main character- would go running after her. Then something would happen again after maybe five minutes and she would run. Ag

Wow!
This was such a funny, smart, fun read!
I thoroughly enjoyed getting lost in this story and its characters.
It was fun reading about Will and Mallory reconnecting after 14 years (even if it was under the most unusual circumstances) and developing a new, fresh adult relationship.

The beginning of this book had me hooked right from the start.
What started as a job opportunity for Mallory Monahan quickly turns into one of the most embarrassing

I adored this book. It was exactly what I needed and I couldn’t put it down. Mallory and Will had me in stitches. I loved the dynamic of Mal and her friends too. Her mother had me ready to pee myself.


I laughed so hard I cried. Fluffy is Julia Kent’s at her best. You need this book! Her words are gold and you won’t be able to put them down!”

A wee bit silly but still good for a laugh...

To be honest, I read the blurb for Fluffy yonky donks ago and thought it seemed a little too OTT to be believable. I put off reading it but I kept being drawn back to the cover. Time and time again, I'd catch a glimpse of the cover, read the blurb, and be reminded that it seemed a little too...fluffy. Well, the other day, it caught my eye AGAIN but this time I succumbed to the lure of a bit of a fluffy read.

Little Miss Perfect and Fluffy by Julia Kent

Romantic Comedy. Little Miss Perfect is the prequel to Fluffy but is not necessary to read first, though I recommend it.

Hilarious book from one of my favorite rom-com writers.

Mallory is an out of work professional fluffer. The kind that helps realtors sell homes faster, not a sex worker.

When she answers a job ad for a fluffer, things go sideways, but she gets reunited with her high school crush. Turns out he was just as interested in her, and is thrilled at the chance to get to know her.

Wow, I did not like this one. I'm normally a Julia Kent fan. I just couldn't stand how stupid the "Fluffer" situation occured. I just hated how she ran away from uncomfortable situations. I really did not get how she suffered from such low self-esteem as she graduated head of her class in highschool and accepted at Harvard...but ten years later she's barely living on her own in an artistic position of home staging.??
The banter got very old because even while making love she's thinking or saying

I was so in the mood for this book. o.m.g. So funny. One of my favorite tropes is the meet cute. Fluffy starts out with a whopper of a meet-cute. Mallory get into a major job description misunderstanding. She doesn't know what a fluffer is. It's a running joke throughout the book. Will seems a little wooden and stern in the beginning of the book-and with good reason. Who wants a porn film crew in your parents' home? Not me. Mallory is book smart (she turned down Harvard!) but she gets fooled maj ...more

Oh my god, this book is way too much fun and I love it so damn much.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

There’s nothing more fun that reading a story that has an embarrassing meet/reunion. It’s too funny, absolutely hilarious this situation Mal gets herself in. This woman is pure comedy gold, I love her so much!

I love me some “the one that got away” romances and Fluffy is definitely one of those. A school crush, a school reunion and a misinterpreted job offer mixed together makes this

I love Will and Mal! Mal’s situation at the beginning was hilarious. Will and Mal have definite chemistry and their banter throughout the book is awesome. Even the side characters have you rolling in laughter. A book full of witty banter, hilarious situations, chemistry, friends, and love! Can’t wait for the rest of the series!

I will begin by telling you the writing in this book is top notch and the performance on the audio is great. Lots of funny stuff.

Our heroine is trying to find a job. She is a stager. She stages houses for realtors. I learned that in years past this position was called a Fluffer because they fluffed the pillows and such. Of course we all live in the real world and read lots and lots of books (Also we watch cable tv) so we all know what a fluffer is in today's terminology. Unfortunately our hero

This book was surprisingly delightful and gets right in your face and makes you want to be part of this group of ladies.
It's original and fresh taking a small town and giving a 21st taste with bad cliches and so much more. Mal is hopeless and I have to love her. She isn't what I expected when I found out her credentials but it made sense when you take into her count her hopeless luck at social lives. But her she had a sharp mouth when it mattered.
So when Will saves her bacon literally and gets

Fluffy is a hilarious slow burn, second chance-ish romcom. I had several laugh out loud moments while listening to this one and it was fun from start to finish. Erin Mallon's narration is absolutely perfect and her comedic timing and delivery are second to none. She voiced all the characters so wonderfully that I had no problem distinguishing between them and I am always impressed by both her female and male voices.

Another super hilariously fun book. So many funny bits, talking about the search terms used to find out about what happened and see pictures on line. And then when the main character calls someone Hagrid's porn twin, I just about died laughing! Listening to this on my drive home from Branson and it made the drive fly by. I did get mad at the main character at one point when she was mad at her love interest for no reason, but as you've heard me say in past reviews, I know that is just how authors ...more

If I could give this more stars I most definitely would! Julia Kent is known for her quirky, funny as heck stories. If you have read her Shopping for the Billionaire or Random series, you already know the humor she can pull out of her characters, how she can take some really random story from the internet (or heck probably real life) and bring them to life in her stories so much so that you have to google them to see if something like she mentions actually exists (and most often they do).

Coming off two almost back to back top reads of the year I knew my next read had a fair bit to live up to. After having read this blurb I figured this book would be the ideal funny light-hearted story to break the ice.

I really need to learn to just put books down without finishing them when they aren't working for me. Because by 20% I knew this wasn't the book for me but I still had to see it through for some stupid reason only the depths of my brain knows.

So the book wasn't bad it just wasn't

“Speaking of enjoying self-abusive behaviors, are either of you actually going to our high school reunion? Ten years, can you believe it? I got invitations by email, Facebook messenger, a direct message on Twitter, another one on Instagram, and some kind of text alert I know I didn’t sign up for.” Perky’s casual drop of this question sets my skin to Creepy-Dude-in-Back-Alley mode.

“I’ve been ignoring them all for months,” I say brightly, plastering a smile on my face.

“I downloaded the app,” Fiona cheerfully says.

“Our high school reunion has an app?” I choke out. As my mouth takes in the yummy curry I’m finally eating, my mind tries to parse what Perky’s up to, and my body keeps hijacking my heart.

“Everyone has an app,” Perky says with a hand wave.

“I don’t have an app!” I protest.

“You can’t keep your smartphone charged above six percent at any given time, Mallory. You don’t deserve an app.”

“That’s not— ” Fiona shoves a piece of pakora in my mouth before I can finish.”
