I’m a neurotically healthy eater.
All the food groups must be represented at every meal of the day, and I buy organic or grow my own produce every chance I get. I bake—rather than frying—chicken and French fries, and I was miraculously born without a sweet tooth.
Lest you think I’m a total food snob, now I’ll tell you my guilty pleasures.
I could eat two McDonald’s Egg McMuffins for breakfast every morning and still lick the wrapper clean when I finish.
I have been known to consume an entire bag of Ruffles potato chips and a family-sized carton of bacon-n-onion dip in one sitting.
I can eat my own body weight in Tater Tots.
We all have guilty pleasures, don’t we? Or embarrassing little habits we’d prefer not to share with others. That’s at the core of my new novella, Eat, Play, Lust.
Cami is an uber-fit woman who teaches people to do yoga poses while on a standup paddleboard. She grew up with a health-nut mother (emphasis on nut) who counted every calorie she ate and shamed her for any smidge of weight gain.
Of course, she feels guilty about it, and does her best to hide it from Paul.
These are things I had fun exploring when I wrote Eat, Play, Lust, and I’m hopeful you’ll enjoy reading about it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Or you can just snicker at paddleboard innuendos like “stick it in” or “grip the shaft” or “spread your legs wider” the way I do.
Whatever rolls your socks up.
Do you have any guilty pleasures of your own? Please share ‘em in the comments. I promise not to laugh. Just save some Tater Tots for me, okay?
She lives with her gentleman friend in Bend, Oregon, where she’ll invent any excuse to hike, bike, snowshoe, float the river, or sip beer along the Bend Ale Trail. She’s published several romantic comedies with Sourcebooks, including Making Waves and Believe it or Not, as well as the interactive fiction caper, Getting Dumped, with Coliloquy.
Cami Pressman is a yoga instructor with a lifelong secret love of junk food. Not even an irresistible man can replace the mouthwatering wickedness of her favorite foods.
Until, that is, Paul Hammond signs up for her class. He’s a gourmet chef looking to score some fitness tips, and a date with Cami. Suddenly Cami’s lust for junk food isn’t the only thing making her tingle.
When this sinful chef and hot yoga teacher eat, play, and lust together, they just might bring their obsession to a new level.
Tawna will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Eat, Play, Lust to the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation.
