“Do not Donkey from Shrek me. I know you’ve been paying that punk little shit to incorrectly deliver this to me ‘by accident.’” I air quote those two words, “Just so you can see me.”
He places the box on the reception desk and stares me down. “Yeah, and?” Huh, he didn’t deny that. The look he’s giving me right now is carnal and definitely not suitable for work. I get the urge to throw myself at him and ravage him, right here in the reception area.
“You could have saved the effort and just come and talked to me…like a normal person would.”
“Yeah, I’m not normal,” he confirms with a grin, “besides; if I did that, I couldn’t watch your ass as you walk away.”
Shaking my head, I smile. “You are terrible.”
“You cannot tell me it hasn’t been a pleasure coming to see me these last few weeks.”
“I plead the Fifth. And on that note, I’ll be going.”
Walking backward to the elevator, I lift my eyebrows and smirk in a “ha-ha, you can’t see my ass” way.
“Are you going to deny me your ass?”
“In every sense of that statement, yes. No ass for you.”

My life hasn’t exactly turned out as I planned but I wouldn’t change a thing. I have a great job. Fantastic friends and a keen eye for fashion; all that’s missing is my happily ever after.
I haven’t had the best of luck in the dating pool and just when I think I’m destined to be alone, a package arrives, delivering me to Bennett Burnsteen.
Diving in head first, I give it my everything but when Bennett’s past comes back to claim what’s now mine, I wonder if it was just a mistake after all.
Little did we know, this unexpected package was just what we both needed.
DL Gallie is from Queensland, Australia, but she’s lived in many different places all over the world, including the UK and Canada. She currently resides in Central Queensland with her husband and two munchkins. She and her husband have been together since she was sixteen, and although they drive each other crazy at times, she couldn’t imagine her life without him.
Shortly after her son was born, DL began reading again. With encouragement from her husband, she picked up the pen and started writing, and now the voices in her head won’t shut up.
DL enjoys listening to music, drinking white wine in the summer, red wine in the winter, and beer all year round. She’s also never been known to turn down a cocktail, especially a margarita.
