Like all good romances, (and cookies) this one is SWEET!
1/2 cup (113 g) butter
1/2 cup (99 g) granulated sugar
1/4 cup (54 g) brown sugar packed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 3/4 cups (210 g) all-purpose flour¹
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Microwave the butter for about 40 seconds. Butter should be completely melted but shouldn't be hot.
In a large bowl, mix butter with the sugars until well-combined.
Stir in vanilla and egg until incorporated.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Please read the recipe note about properly measuring flour.
Mix dough until just combined. Dough should be soft and a little sticky but not overly sticky.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Scoop out 1.5 tablespoons of dough (medium cookie scoop) and place on baking sheet.
She wants a new life, free from her past.He wants his old life back before everything went wrong.
What they really need is each other.
Emma's ex broke her heart and left her broke, making her desperate for a job. A local gym manager asks her to fill in as an assistant after multiple employees failed to show up on Christmas Day. Mistake number one: bringing cookies for her new co-workers. Mistake number two: asking, rather loudly, who'd work out on a holiday?
Will's modeling career put him on the map. His money kept him there. Now he's a health and fitness celebrity, filling his gyms, even on Christmas. But a series of losses caused the media to name him the billionaire playboy. When he arrives at his New York City location, his agent suggests his new assistant help him restore his reputation.
The cookie-baking girl.
The protein shakes drinking dude.
The one who doesn't work out.
The one with abs of steel.
Emma and Will couldn't be more different except they both have secrets to hide and promises to keep. They could work together to fix their lives but the only problem is they hate each other and both make mistake number three: not knowing whom to trust.
This is book one in the Only Us Billionaire Romance series, sweet and clean complete with an HEA.
Outside, cold rain dropped from the sky as Will dashed from the car to the office building.
Inside, his gaze landed immediately on Emma. She was wearing an Apex tank and eating a cookie at the front desk. He fought against the craving. "Good morning. A steady diet of cookies for breakfast, I see."
"I'll eat them even if you don't."
Brooke, one of his employees, eyed the box.
"Were you the teacher's pet?" Will asked Emma as he removed his coat. "Moved on from apples and onto cookies?"
"I'm not trying to win anyone's approval or suck up, Will." Emma crossed her arms in front of her chest.
"She's trying to fatten us," Sylvia said with disgust.
"No, but you could certainly use a little sugar," she shot back.
Will peered into the box.
Emma slammed it shut. "Employees only."
Will's head jerked back. "What?" His lips quirked. "Technically this is my corporation so I am an employee."
"You really want one of my cookies? I thought you didn't eat cookies or talk to me."
"I told you good morning."
Sylvia, Brooke, and the others looked on with keen interest.
"And I didn't say I'd never ever eat a cookie."
Everyone's eyes lifted to the photo print on the wall emblazoned with his rock hard abs.
"But you want one now?"
He smirked. "I really, really do." He wanted to get things back on track with her and there was no way anyone would believe they were an item if they were arguing in public. Plus the cookies smelled good.
"You can't have one."
Will shifted to swipe the box but Emma stepped in front of it.
The phone rang. "Will, Quinn is ready for you upstairs," Sylvia said.
"I'll be right up," he replied. He turned back to Emma. "I'll get my hands on those cookies if it's the last thing I do."
