Publisher's Summary

She’s not just my ex-girlfriend. She’s my new coworker. 

I knew Lucy Dillard was "The One" the first time I met her. Yes, I’m enough of a sap to believe in love at first sight. When I fell for Lucy, I fell hard. Everything was great between us - until the moment she dumped me.

Now I just want to forget about her. Instead, I’m stuck staring at her face all day. But I need this job, so I’ll find a way to be civil and professional.

There’s just one small problem: I’m nowhere close to being over her.

First, we were lovers. Then enemies. Now we’re trying to work together. 

I didn’t set out to break Tanner King’s heart, but you know what they say about the road to hell.

I’ve got too many responsibilities and no room in my life for love. I can deal with Tanner’s resentment until he starts working at the desk directly across from mine. Obviously, a truce of some kind is required. We’re both grownups. We can handle this situation like professionals.

There’s only one thing threatening this fragile peace we’ve negotiated: all these inconvenient feelings I apparently still have for him.

Cream and Punishment is book two in the King Family series set in the small town of Crowder, Texas, home of the King’s Creamery ice cream company. Each book is a stand-alone, full-length contemporary romance that follows one of the six King siblings as they find and fight for love.

Savory Romance + Delicious Family Drama

I loved this story! A second-chance romance between a guy who fell too hard, too fast the first time around and a gal who met the right guy at the wrong time. Sweet, right? But also really funny. When Lucy (a rising star in the marketing department) and Tanner (the ne'er do well son of the CEO of the ice cream company they work for) are smooshed together in the same department after Tanner is demoted, neither can ignore the lingering feelings both of them have.

But it's not just their love story that made this book great. I loved the delicious family drama, which came from both sides. Overall, this was another huge win from Susannah Nix with just the right balance of romance and heat between Lucy and Tanner, and secrets and humor among the lovable ensemble cast!

It was fun, witty and I loved it.

Lucy and Tanner had me hooked from the first time I read the blurb. I love trainwreck disaster office romances.
A brilliant forced proximity romantic comedy.
Lucy wants to do a great job, Tanner wants to make doing Lucy his job. This book gave me Hating Game vibes, and i adored it. This was a light fluffy read that came as a welcome break from all the Dark Romance and Mafia types. Thankfully they aren't infuriating, theres no mental shouting at them to get it together. They were lovers, they became enemies... and then friends to lovers.

Really enjoyed this.
