Large. Hot. With a pump of sexual tension.
When the barista next door teams up with a slick ad executive in this steamy standalone novel from USA Today bestselling author Jamie K. Schmidt, they both get a taste of unexpected love.
Terri Cooke wishes she could give Mick Wentworth a piece of her mind. The infuriating stud muffin walks into her coffee shop every morning expecting his regular order at 8:57 on the dot, without ever acknowledging Terri's presence—except for staring at her cleavage. And yet she can't deny that Mick Wentworth has an animal magnetism that's stronger and richer than any espresso . . . which explains why Terri says yes when he suddenly, inexplicably asks her out.
After the morning coffee run, Mick's day is all downhill from there. His family's marketing firm is dysfunctional in more ways than one, so to save the business, Mick desperately needs to impress their newest client. When he learns that Terri's a fan of their trendy product, he tries to get inside her head. It doesn't hurt that she's the barista he's been lusting after for the past five months. But as things heat up with Terri, Mick finds that a little steam is just the jolt he needs to turn his whole life around.

Surprisingly good! STUD is hot and funny and very enjoyable.
Characters: Terri is a great heroine--smart and funny, and a loving sister to boot. I love seeing her grow throughout the book, as well as how she faces the trials in her life. Mick, on the other hand, was quite a jerk initially, but he grew on me over the course of the book as more of his personality showed. He's not quite as bad as he makes out to be. Love their chemistry and their interactions together.
Plus factor: Online gaming. Yay! Love the all-around geekiness as well. (Am I showing my true colors here?)
Overall: Absolutely recommended. Though this is my first by Jamie K. Schmidt, it definitely won't be the last!
