Obsession (Rent A Spouse Book 2)
My love life is on the backburner—or so I thought. I moved to this small town to escape my overbearing ex, and I became a rent-a-spouse to pay the bills. But I didn’t plan for Keaton, my ridiculously handsome new boss.
I’ll be Mr. Thornhill’s husband any day of the week.
Keaton’s attracted to me, too, and he wants a real relationship. Our chemistry is too strong to ignore and being in his arms makes me feel safe again. But when my ex reappears and won’t stop harassing me, I’m tempted to run. Except that would mean leaving Keaton behind.
It all started when my new rent-a-spouse walked through the door. Josh is charmingly soft-spoken, witty, and full of mystery. I needed someone to cook, clean, and make the house a little less lonely in this mountain town. Instead, my new “husband” has the physique of an underwear model.
I’m not complaining.
Around Josh, I’m happier than I’ve ever been. He’s addictive, and our relationship becomes more than just a contract. But Josh carries a sadness in his eyes I can’t explain, and he refuses to talk about his past. If he won’t let me in, I can’t protect him from the ghosts that still haunt him.
This is the second book in the Rent A Spouse series. It can be read as a standalone with no cliffhanger.

The Fitting Book
Think of the moment you wear an outfit you have sewn for the first time. Think of how happy, proud, and accomplished you feel, all because it fits and you love it.
Many women struggle with the standard sizing of commercial or indie sewing patterns, which often leads to fitting issues. This garment fitting guide will help you adjust sewing patterns to achieve the perfect fit you desire.
This fitting book has visual sketches and links to videos to help during each step of the 3-part fitting process.
Here’s How it Works:
A) Identify the Fitting Issue.
B) Pin, Cut, & Tape the Fitting Sample.
C) Correct the Sewing Pattern.
The Fitting Book covers the following categories for pattern alterations:
- Full Bust Adjustments (FBA) – bodice alterations for princess seams, darts, no darts
- Small Bust Adjustments (SBA) – bodice alterations for princess seams, darts, no darts

You will learn about terminology, abbreviations, pattern tools, and patternmaking supplies. The Fitting Book shows how to use a hip curve, a French curve, and a clear ruler for patternmaking. The pattern corrections can be applied to womenswear, menswear, childrenswear, knit styles, and woven styles. The sketches and photos are in black and white. Finally, you will learn about the customization scale in garment fitting and patternmaking.
I share my knowledge from fitting tens of thousands of garments while working in the garment industry since 2003. You will learn industry-expert fitting tips to achieve the customized fit you desire.
