A throaty laugh made him pause.
He knew that laugh.
The smile on his face suddenly felt more genuine. His
gaze slid across the room when she laughed again. Her
back was to him, but it was her…Utah. She held her
cue stick and pointed at a corner pocket. “Watch ‘em
She sunk the eight ball like it was her bitch and the
guys around the table groaned. A short-haired blonde
lifted her hand and made a grabby motion with her
fingers. “Pay up!”
Utah laughed, laid her cue on the table, and grabbed
the bottle of beer at her side. All the while Rick just
watched the interplay. She wore tight jeans, a tucked
in tank that hugged her waist in a mouth-watering
way …over the ensemble was a jean jacket that he
could easily picture draped over the handlebars of his
“I think we just got hustled,” one of the young college
kids said as he shoved his hands in his wallet to pay
“I tried to warn you.”
Judy’s friend shoved the bills into her pocket faster
than the waitress had. “Anyone else? Twenty buck
minimum with a round of drinks.”
This might be fun.
Rick took a step forward and lifted his voice above the
crowd. “A hundred bucks.”
Utah froze, but didn’t turn around. He wondered if
she recognized his voice. Had she thought about him
in the last year? With the exception of her brother’s
divorce party, he hadn’t seen her…not outside of a wet
dream or two.
The blonde swiveled her head like a snake to prey and
her eyes did that sweeping thing that happened to him
once in a while. Rick knew he wasn’t hard on the
eyes, knew he filled out his shirt like a Marine should.
His thick shoulders and neck screamed military or
linebacker. He did play a little football in high school.
“Who the hell are you?” the blonde mumbled.
Judy slowly turned and had to tilt her head back to
look at him. “Green Eyes.”
“You know this guy?” The blonde shoved next to Judy
and nudged her arm.
God, she was even more adorable than he
remembered. He didn’t let her eyes go, just matched
her stare. A blush rose to her cheeks and a few
freckles peeked through. Her snarky remark about his
presence was a heartbeat away. He’d lay another
hundred bucks on the table as a bet that the next
words out of her mouth would shock everyone within
“Did the steroid train stop in town when I wasn’t
The blonde started to laugh.
Rick stepped even closer so barely an inch separated
them. The smile never left his face. “I hear steroids
As if she couldn’t help herself, Judy glanced down and
it was Rick’s turn to laugh. He brushed the edge of her
body with his and removed the cue from the table.
“What do ya say, Utah? I’ll even let you break. Ladies
first and all that.”
Rick knew they were drawing a crowd, but the
interplay between them matched the sparks that
hovered over them like a damn rainbow, and he was
powerless to care what anyone thought.
“A hundred bucks is steep, Judy.”
“S’okay, Meg…Rick’s a big talker. Besides, he doesn’t know what I’m capable of.”
Rick shook his head and clicked his tongue. “Now, now…don’t want to show all your cards.”
“She’s really good, dude,” the guy she’d relieved of twenty bucks said from across the table. Rick lowered his voice. “Will you go easy on me, Babe?”
Judy regained some of her lost composure and pushed away from his personal space. “Not on your life. And I’m not your babe!”
We’ll see about that. He couldn’t stop smiling.
