“Why are you being so nice to me? Is Lynne paying you?” His lips turned down at her words.
Whoa, stepped on a nerve there. Sebastian bumped against her leg for attention, but she chose to ignore him as she slipped into her kitchen chair. She’d get over her mad at the dog before the night was over. When she adopted him, she had planned on long walks along a shaded road with her pet. Yeah, that never happened. Didn’t know she need a guard dog, never considering that Clint would be an issue, especially since he peeled out of her life so fast he left actual tire tracks in her driveway, instead of the figurative ones found in country music.
The sound of the pen clicking reminded her Will was waiting. Not sure if she should apologized, she chose to anyhow. “Sorry, I didn’t mean it that way. I guess I’m not used to men being as nice to me as you have been these last couple days.”
Her words depressed her as she settled into her seat. Will’s words were low-voiced, but she still heard them. The gravelly bite to his tone caused a twist in her lady parts. Damn, the man oozed sexy even when irritated.
“You need to find a better class of men to date.”
He summed up her love life in one sentence. “You’re right. I’ll work on it right away as soon as I deal with the worse class.”
