"""Richardson keeps the focus squarely on the characters' emotional development, hitting all the right romance beats.""--Publishers Weekly ""Tati Richardson delivers a timely and modern debut with The Build Up that is not to be missed! Forty-something year old architects Ari and Porter's chemistry make each page a simmering delight."" --USA TODAY bestselling author Kwana Jackson ""Richardson's delightfully entertaining debut brilliantly showcases a deliciously sharp sense of humor that makes the most of the book's setting while never downplaying the real workplace struggles women in a male-dominated industry face. This appeal is matched by the book's older, plus-size heroine, who confidently embraces her own self-worth. In all, this is a romance that throws off plenty of sexy chemistry and sensual sizzle in a story line that celebrates family, friends, and food, hitting the romance fiction trifecta.""--Booklist, starred review"
