Her friends left, and Lily was alone in her home, nervous as all hell. A moment later, a knock at the door startled her, and her pulse quickened.
He was here.
Okay, you can do it. Just don’t throw up.
Lily laughed. That was a great thing to think before a date. She opened a door with a smile on her face then froze in her tracks.
He was even more handsome now. How on earth was that possible?
His midnight black hair hung loose, framing his face. He wore a black button-down shirt tucked into jeans with the sleeves rolled up so she could see his forearms. Damn, she wanted to lick them. Just a little taste.
Who knew forearms were sexy?
His dark jeans encased thick thighs and make her think of what else could be thick…
She raised her head and blushed.
“Hi.” Shade smiled and tilted his head.
“Hi,” she said on a quiet exhale.
“You look beautiful, Lily.” He tucked a stray hair behind her ear, and she shivered.
“You do, too.” She blushed again. Soon she’d be Crayola red. “I mean you look handsome.”
He traced her jaw with a calloused finger. “Thank you. Are you ready to go?”
She swallowed hard. “Uh-huh.”
Okay, she really had to remember the English language. This was getting embarrassing.
“Okay, then.” He trailed his hand down her arm and wrapped his hand around hers. His warm skin felt like heaven against hers.
She shook her head, clearing her thoughts. How was she supposed to get through a whole date if she couldn’t even formulate enough of a conversation to get out of the door?
