My Sexy Saturday

“My Sexy Saturday" ( ) gets hot-sauce-hot today in the lobby of a BBQ restaurant as Elle and Michael from my WIP “Mountains and Skyscrapers” size each other up.  Elle thinks she has businessman Michael all figured out, but does she?  She’ll have to figure him out soon, since he wants to buy her business.

     Elle watched Michael shuffle from one foot to another while leaning against the counter in the lobby of the BBQ restaurant. She usually went for the more rugged type yet there was something about him that intrigued her despite the fact that she wanted to shove his last offer up his ass.  No, his nose, rather.  His ridiculously sunburned, peeling nose! Better to leave his ass out of the equation, it might throw her thinking askew.  

     She cleared her throat as the seconds ticked by and eyed him up and down as he had eyed her only moments before.  He wore black shoes, gray slacks and a monogrammed white dress shirt, rolled up at the sleeves.  Her gaze lingered here and there as she sized him up and formed an opinion.   

     Michael Williams was a soft city boy, and she was willing to bet he not only got regular manicures, but perhaps even indulged in the occasional man facial.  She determined that he had rolled up his sleeves in anticipation of not getting BBQ sauce on his expensive designer white dress shirt. 

     Then her gaze traveled to his eyes, which were staring back into hers. 

     She had been caught!  But, something primal lurked just below the surface of his gaze.  It was as if she were looking into the eyes of a caged animal.  Not one that had been born in a zoo, but one that had been captured in the wild then placed in captivity.

     Perhaps he hadn’t always been a city boy?

     His eyes blinked and the spell was broken.
