“You can always count on Erin Nicholas for fun, sexy contemporary romance.”
—Melissa Foster, New York Times bestselling author
Forking Around, a flirty and sexy romantic comedy standalone from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is available now!
A Cinderella story with a hot boss so charming even a fairy godmother couldn’t do better.
Everyone thinks Dax Marshall is a prince of a guy. And he’s definitely charming.
But Jane has enough going on without adding a torrid fling with the boss to her life. Between her father’s illness, her wicked-ish stepmother, her little sister’s teenage drama, and the co-workers who depend on her—she can’t handle another mess.
No matter how tempting and gorgeous the mess may be. Or how messy he wants to get with her.
Dax has spent his life being very serious about only one thing: proving you can be successful while still having a helluva good time. But he’s just met the one woman who might break his I-can-charm-anyone streak. She’s actually taking him seriously…and she seriously thinks they have nothing in common and can’t be together.
Maybe he’s the one who needs a new view of happily ever after. It’s time to stop forking around.

When I picked up Sugarcoated (first book in this series) to read just a few months ago, it had been a long hot minute (because even a few years is long for me because that’s like 800ish books lol) since I’d read anything by Erin so I honestly had zero idea what I was getting into. That story made me so damn happy that I moved all the books I had on my kindle by her to the front of the line. It is super easy to get lost in one of her stories because, FUN! And let me tell you, I only thought I was having fun because Forking Around taught be the real meaning of reading euphoria LOL
This story brought a lot of joy to my reading experience, but not the superficial kind of joy, the deep-rooted joy you feel when you witness an amazing thing. When I was reading, I felt this connection to the story that allowed me to see myself in the story, not because the story mirrors my life in any way, but because it had so much depth that it was easy to relate to. It was real. The circumstances around Jane were very relatable to every day real life. And there was always hope lingering in the plot points. I felt it when I read it. It was real and tangible for me. It allowed me to connect to the struggle in the story and the triumph.
In the last couple of months I have come to realize what a spectacular writer Erin Nicholas is and I won’t make the mistake again of letting any kind of minutes go by between reading her words and you shouldn’t either. #TRUST
He was the new strawberry pie in her life. She’d had one taste of Zoe’s strawberry pie and that had been it. Nothing else would ever measure up. She would never not crave it. She would never pass up a chance to have it on her tongue.
Yeah, Dax Marshall was that.
And then some.
He pulled back, breathing hard, staring down at her.
She quickly put her hand over his mouth. “Don’t talk. Talking is the wrong choice right now.”
She was going to have to deal with the boss thing soon enough. And the millionaire thing. And the he-doesn’t-live-here-and-isn’t-staying thing. And all the other crap she always had to deal with that made this impossible.
But for another minute—or maybe ten—she didn’t want to think about any of that. And if he talked, that would be very difficult.
He pulled in a breath, gave her a short nod that she interpreted as okay, no talking and she moved her hand.
Which was the right choice, because he leaned in as he slid his hand up the side of her body, skimming over her hip, waist, the side of her breast, up and into her hair. Then he cupped the back of her head and lowered his mouth to hers again.
This time he kissed her.
And seriously, she’d give up strawberry pie for this.
They made out like that for long, delicious minutes.
When he finally took his mouth from hers, it was to slide it along her jawline, his beard causing goose bumps to trip down her arms and tighten her nipples. In her ear he said gruffly, “I have to talk now.”
She laughed lightly. “I didn’t think it would last for even this long, really.”
“Well, I do love using my mouth this way too.” He dragged his lips along the side of her neck.
Her nipples got even tighter, begging for him to drag those lips down there.
“But I can’t resist saying—” He lifted his head. “You are the most delicious thing I’ve ever tasted.”
She grinned. “Well… same.”
A very sexy kind of surprised but superhot look crossed his face. “What about pie?”
She sighed. “Pie is amazing.”
“But the kissing…” he prompted.
She knew she shouldn’t tell him the truth. The guy’s ego didn’t quit. Already. But she found herself nodding. “I was really hoping you’d be bad at it. Like terrible. Like no-worry-of-dirty-dreams bad,” she said.
He arched an eyebrow. “And?”
She sighed. “It was really good.”
“Dirty-dreams-tonight good?” His voice was rumbly and low.
She nodded. “Unfortunately.”
He looked very pleased by her answer. His mouth curled up. “Maybe we should combine the kissing and the pie.”
Her eyes widened before she could stop it. That would be… holy crap she would never recover. “I can’t even imagine that, honestly. I might die.”
