A Full Plate

Opposites come together for a spicy surprise.

Bradford “Tully” Tolliver has everything—money, a great car, a beautiful condo, and a promising career as one of Portland’s hottest young lawyers. Sure, he puts in long hours and has no social life to speak of, but who needs romance when corporations pay top dollar for his expertise? He hesitates when a colleague asks if her cousin can live with him, but the arrangement will last less than a year, and then the cousin—Sage Filling—will return to his tiny hometown.

But Sage is handsome and intriguing, and his cooking makes Tully swoon. Sage has obligations back home, though, and Tully has offers he might not refuse from a persistent—and very wealthy—ex. Since Tully and Sage each have a full plate, can they make room for a side of love?



This story really builds the relationship between the two men. We watch them go from strangers to friends, to lovers, to partners and it was fantastic!!

I’m equally a sucker for humor. With a name like “Sage Filling,” I expected to roll my eyes at the inevitable chef jokes. Only a gifted writer could set readers up, knowing the punch lines, and still evoke chuckles!… A Full Plate pressed all my sensory happy zones, leaving me thoroughly sated.

A Full Plate, is an opposites attract, sweet, low steam, low angst romance with a wonderful HEA ending that just made me happy while reading. I think this has been my favorite Dreamspun Desires title so far.

The ending is all kinds of glitter and joy. If you need a happy book to read this weekend, and A Full Plate didn’t let me down.

This was utterly adorable. And it’s apparently true – the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

Goodreads Reviewer

‘A Full Plate’ is the perfect title for this hilarious, exciting, suspenseful, and very emotional story about two men who think they are too busy to handle anything else – until they meet.

Goodreads Reviewer

Another wonderful book about two different men who find each other and react like the adults they are. 

Goodreads Reviewer

This was truly a fun read. So many times through the story I tried to convince Tully to think of the life he’d have with Sage in a small town oppose to a life as a rich man in a large city where no one actually knows anyone. I’m so glad he ‘listened’ to me. LOL I really loved the outcome of their lives. Wonderful story and highly recommended!
