Boring, but completely gorgeous. That was my first impression of him. My next two thoughts were ‘pompous ass’ and ‘cocky jerk.’ And, I had the glorious pleasure of sharing a table with him for the entire night. He didn’t speak, didn’t grunt….he just nodded and stared. If I weren’t taking my bosses place at this dinner, I’d have found another place to sit and escape Rylan Daniels.
‘Absolutely beautiful’ was what I thought when I found her at my table at the Ad Execs quarterly dinner. She wore a black strapless dress and exuded confidence from every part of her. I nodded to her, but didn’t speak. I really didn’t have much to say anyway. I couldn’t quit staring and had to excuse myself at one point to stand across the room and watch her. It was a strange, unwelcome feeling I was having about this stunning woman. It had been five years….five years since Kristen…..and I still couldn’t move on. That kind of hurt you just don’t get over so easily and I wasn’t even sure that I wanted to get over it. But, here I was, completely intrigued and unable to stop thinking about Jen Bailey.
Read an excerpt:
There was something about Jen Bailey that had my attention. It was unnerving and not welcomed.
I watched as she laughed and appeared to be having fun. She disappeared with Ellen for a little while only to reappear looking refreshed and even more beautiful than before. When everyone took to the dance floor, I couldn’t stop myself from moving back to the table as she was the only one still sitting there.
I ignored the boulder crushing my chest and asked her to dance. I told myself it was because I didn’t want her sitting alone at the table, but I wasn’t sure that was the truth. Surprisingly, she agreed.
My mind was a jumbled mess. She smelled as good as she looked, and I felt the need to pull her closer to me, but withheld the urge. I’d barely had my emotions under control when Jen leaned back, stared in my eyes, and asked me why I was there.
