Opposites Ignite by Sadira Stone

Genre Contemporary Workplace Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Blue-haired, buxom, and bodacious, server Rosie needs her job at Bangers Tavern, where her work family adores her weirdness and supports her hunt for a tattoo apprenticeship. When too much New Year’s bubbly tumbles her into a sweet, shy coworker’s bed, she craves more. But guys like Eddie never stick with girls like her.

Strait-laced, soft-spoken, and skinny, barback Eddie has a huge crush on his curvy, tattooed coworker. Their New Year’s surprise is a dream come true—until grandma walks in on them. Eddie begs Rosie to fake-date him to appease his old-fashioned family. He’s already keeping secrets, so what’s the harm in one more? But the longer he pretends with Rosie, the deeper he falls.

Their boss lays down the law: No relationship drama at work, or you’re fired. Rosie’s everything Eddie ever wanted—but to keep her, he’ll have to drop a terrifying truth bomb on his loving but stifling family. And Rosie must trust her bruised heart with the guy who nearly crushed it.

Come back to Bangers Tavern for a steamy, laugh-out-loud, opposites-attract romance that ignites in all the worst ways—and the best!

Know the Hero from Opposites Ignite

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

Eddie pulls out his trusty notebook and works on his to-do list. He’s always collecting ideas for Dacha, the Russian-themed vodka bar he wants to open. He might clip images for his vision board, or sketch a floor plan.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Pirozhki! A Russian deli in Tacoma carries several delicious varieties of these fried dumplings. His favorite is cheese and potato.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

He’s not a flashy guy. Except for special occasions, you’ll find Eddie in crisp new jeans, a black T-shirt, and cushy black sneakers, since he works on his feet. His signature piece: an antique silver belt buckle, inherited from his great-grandfather, displaying the Russian Imperial seal, worn by officers in the Czar’s army.

Does he know how to fix things?

Yes, he’s very handy. He, his dad, and his grandfather built his above-the-garage apartment.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Eddie tried to juggle his new job responsibilities as Bangers’ assistant manager along with Rosie’s good news. She finally got the tattoo apprenticeship she’d longed for and, distracted by work responsibilities, his response was less than enthusiastic. She was not pleased.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

Eddie has a large extended family, so he’s comfortable with kids.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He’s an up-at-dawn hard charger, either hitting the gym or the books (he’s working on a business degree).

Can he use chopsticks?

Not too well, as we see when he takes Rosie to a new Asian fusion restaurant.

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

Eddie loves Raf coffee—”Russian style kick-ass espresson with vanilla and foamed cream.”

What apps would he have on his phone?

Scheduling apps, time management apps, notetaking apps

Android or iPhone?

Android. He’s not well-off.

Beard or clean-shaven?

Short dark beard

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Virgin skin. He’s terrified of needles—so of course he falls for a tattoo artist!

Personal vehicle or public transport?

He drives an old Toyota

Recycle or toss?

Recycle, of course! He lives in the Pacific Northwest. We’re very environmentally conscious.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!
