Here’s a little excerpt from Taste For Love, which will be available on April 8th!
“Carlos? What are you doing here?”
While waiting for his answer, Shelly looked around the restaurant for anyone that resembled the man she was meeting.
Carlos sat down on the opposite end of the bench. “Felt like grabbing a bite.”
“All the way out here?”
“Where is he?” Carlos asked. His eyes roamed the few patrons at the downtown pub.
“Your date.” Carlos sounded annoyed, but he also looked like he was ready to pick a fight.
“How did you know?”
“Come on, let’s get you out of here.” Carlos extended a hand out toward Shelly suggesting she place hers inside of it, but she pulled back.
“I’m not going anywhere. I’m supposed to be meeting someone here.”
Glancing at his wrist, Carlos tossed out. “Yeah, a guy that’s kept you waiting for forty minutes now. Let’s go.”
“How do you know he didn’t call to say he was running late?”
“Excuses would still not be good enough, even if he did take the time to give them to you.” Carlos stood, this time reaching for her hand leaving no option for her to decline again. He wrapped her fingers in his and pulled her to standing. “And I can look in your eyes and know he didn’t bother. His loss.”
