Sweet

by Emmy Laybourne

Solu’s luxurious celebrity-filled “Cruise to Lose” is billed as “the biggest cruise since the Titanic,” and if the new diet sweetener works as promised—dropping five percent of a person’s body weight in just days—it really could be the answer to the world’s obesity problem. But Laurel is starting to regret accepting her friend Viv’s invitation to join her on the cruise. She’s embarrassed herself in front of celebrity host Tom Fiorelli (otherwise known as the hottest guy ever!) and she’s too seasick to even try Solu. And that’s before Viv and all the other passengers start acting really strange.

*But will they die for it, too?*

Tom Forelli knows that he should be grateful for this job and the opportunity to shed his childhood “Baby Tom-Tom” image. His publicists have even set up a “romance” for him with a sexy reality star. But as things on the ship start to get a bit wild, he finds himself drawn to a different girl. And when Tom’s celebrity hosting gig turns into an expose on the shocking side effects of Solu, it’s Laurel that he’s determined to save.
