Walking at a fast pace to the five-story restaurant, my beige stiletto gets stuck in a crack of the stone walkway. Out of nowhere, strong hands grab my elbow as I start to fall forward towards the ground. My eyes slowly drift upward from a pair of black dress shoes, briefly taking in his tall, athletic build that his gray dress pants can’t conceal. Then my eyes wander over his broad chest that looks hot as hell in a form-fitting black shirt.
When my eyes reach his face, I’m stunned to be looking into some gorgeous man’s blue eyes that are the lightest color I’ve ever seen. Except … something’s familiar.
“Um … what?” I say as I remember to breathe.
“Are you okay?” He raises his right eyebrow as he questions me.
“Yes, yes, I am. Thanks for helping me avoid an embarrassing accident.”
He cocks his head to the side and his eyes roam over me. “We wouldn’t want you to hurt that beautiful body of yours.” Smiling, he begins to walk away, but stops and turns around. “I know this is going to sound like a pick-up line, but do I know you?”
“I swear I’m not.”
“Geez, I don’t know if I should feel insulted or happy.”
“No, you’ve got it wrong. You are gorgeous, but I really wasn’t trying to pick you up. Are you from around here?”
“For the most part. I lived in Florida as a child.”
“Really, what part?”
“Tampa.” A part of my life I will always remember, but want to forget.
“Tampa. Hmm. I lived there as well. You have gorgeous green eyes,” he says while scanning my body from head to toe. “May I know your name?”
This is definitely flirting. “Ivy.”
His eyes widen just for a second. If I wasn’t paying attention to his handsome face, I would have missed it. “Ivy, do you have a last name?”
“Nice to meet you, Ivy Montgomery.” His smile is contagious. And then he walks in the entrance of the restaurant.
It takes me a moment to realize I’m standing on the sidewalk, staring after him, wearing a smile.
About Rhyme Devereux
Rhyme Devereux is an adult romance writer. She is married with children, and two dogs living in Pennsylvania. After turning … a certain age, Rhyme realized that she’s a late bloomer (and wears that label with pride). Her passion for reading transitioned into writing romance books to share with other readers.
When she’s not writing or daydreaming about characters, and plot twists, you can find Rhyme being a housekeeper, tutor, chef, referee, loving mother, and wife. And if she has some spare time, you will catch her lying in bed wearing holey pajamas, while reading a good romance or mystery-thriller.
Thanks for wanting to get to know Rhyme better. But by far, her books are much more exciting.
