Six Sentence Sunday

This is from Man of Her Dreams. Lindsay is remembering when she first met her HOT neighbour, Jared.
Enjoy.

She'd come straight from a renovation site, disheveled and dirty to the Food Mart for a few groceries.

Reaching for the last loaf of bread on the rack, her fingers brushed across the hand of a man. When their fingers touched, a jolt of awareness snaked along her arm and she'd looked up. Slack jawed, she'd stood gawking like some pre-pubescent schoolgirl with her first crush, into a pair of steel grey eyes.

He'd flashed a smile, which further weakened already rubbery legs, released the loaf of bread and moved on down the aisle. It had taken her a few moments to realize the hulking hunk was her neighbour.

  2. Why can't all neighbors be hulking hunks like this one? I especially like the steel-grey eyes... *sigh*

  3. I love those moments, the ones that start as inconsequential but rapidly build into something more meaningful :) A great Six.

  4. Those eyes must be something if a man that large wasn't recognizable at first sight! Thanks for sharing. :)
