Riley and Hunter meet for the first time…

Leaning back I close my eyes,letting the sun ease the tension from my body. When I feel a spray of cool water hit my feet I yank off my sunglasses to see what the hell’s going on.

There’s a man swimming in the pool! He pulls himself through the water with such speed and fluidity that I see every ripped muscle in his back and arms. He goes under, flips, kicks off the wall starting another. I lose count after thirty. He slowly turns around, dives underwater, then ambles up the stairs. I have to remember to breathe. In all his glistening glory he’s by far the most gorgeous man I’ve ever laid eyes on. He has honey-colored hair with piercing blue eyes and HOLY S–T he notices me as he makes his way over.

“Hi, my name’s Hunter Davis.” He saunters over with a cocky smile on his sexy lips. “You must be Riley. Your Dad’s told me so much about you.”

What I want to say is, “Really? He doesn’t even know me,” but I refrain. “Well, that’s nice but I’m sorry–he didn’t mention you at all.” I give him my best sarcastic smile, but I don’t think I pulled it off because he’s chuckling.

He places his hand over his heart as he shakes his head. “I’m crushed he didn’t mention me; I live in the apartment above the garage. I have access to the pool area and Rosie’s amazing culinary skills.”

“I didn’t even know there was an apartment up there.” I look around and for the life of me I don’t see any garages.

“It’s on the left side. The house is L-shaped; I even have my own entrance by the gate.” He runs his long fingers through his wet hair.

“You’re a great swimmer.” I can feel my cheeks burning as I stare at him like I’ve never seen the male species before.

“Thanks. During the summer I’m a lifeguard so I like to do laps on my days off to keep in shape.”

A lifeguard, Holy S–t…
