Excerpt of Sticky and Sweet

Alana Fowler, a single 26-year old baker/dessert entrepreneur, was in her apartment in midtown Atlanta, thinking up ideas for cakes for her bakery called Sinfully Sweet and Decadent. Her bakery has cupcakes, layer cakes, cookies, cinnamon rolls, and other desserts so rich that would make even a hardcore aerobic addict want to cheat on their diet. Her first new idea was a new vanilla layer cake that was beyond vanilla. She was already in the kitchen, writing down dessert ideas and recipes. Despite being a successful baker, she was also single.

She had a serious relationship with her boyfriend of 4 years, a pharmacist named Phil. But recently, they had ulltimately split up for various reasons. (Cheated on her with a friend of hers, was jealous of her success, etc.) After the breakup, she focused her energy on her career and went out more with her friends. She also embraced her full-figured, size 18 self. She's a plus size woman who loves food, loves to cook and bake, and has the stocked pantry and fridge to prove it. Just because she's not a single digit size doesn't mean she's boring. Other than food, she's a feminine girl loves to shop for clothes, makeup, among other things.

As she gathered the ingredients for the vanilla cake and frosting, she heard a knock on the door. At the door was a cute, young salesman.

"Hello, my name's Cameron. I'm from the Indulgent Additions company and I'm selling honey among other sweet things. Mind if I come in?" He said as he flashed a toothpaste ad-worthy smile.

"Please come in. " Alana replied as she let him in.

"So what are you selling?" She asked as they sat down on the sofa.

"Here's a new catalog featuring our fresh chocolates. We also have honeys, syrups, ice cream toppings, etc. We also a new line of chocolate honeys." Cameron said as he gave Alana a copy of the company catalog.

"Wow! Everything in it is so yummy!" Alana happily exclaimed.

"Yes it is. Shall I tell you about the new honeys?" Cameron said.

"Yes please." Alana replied with enthusiasm.

"Great, we have these new chocolate honey products. They're the best of both worlds. The temptating taste of chocolate and the sweetness of honey." He added.

"Do you have any samples?" Alana asked with amazement.

"Indeed I do." He said with a smile on his face as he took out the sample jars.

"What kind of flavors do the chocolate honeys come in?" Alana asked as she watched him take the sample jars out of case.

"We have them in white chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chocolate mint, chocolate raspberry, chocolate vanilla, and chocolate caramel." Cameron described.

Alana was very thrilled about trying the chocolate honeys. She wasn't sure which one to start with.

"Let's start with the white chocolate honey. Would you like a warm sample? " He said as he opened the sampler jar with a tasting spoon.

Being an avid chocolate lover, Alana couldn't wait to taste it.

"I would love to." Alana said happily.

"Enjoy" he said to her as Alana took the spoon and sampled the white chocolate honey which was very tasty.

"So delicious." Alana replied after giving the honey a taste. She was about to taste it again but she then was taken aback by Cameron's scent as he came close to her. She noticed that his scent contained a hint of vanilla.

"If you enjoy that, you must try our chocolate mint honey. It's best when it's slightly hot. May I indulge your desire?" He said her in a seductive tone.
