I love scenes that show a fun side to characters. One making the other a little crazy. One saying something to get under the other’s skin. I’ve always been a big fan of romantic comedy, so the funny scenes always get to me. And who doesn’t like making a man cringe, just a little!
“I can’t take you in there looking like this. Every man in the county will be trying to take you home.”
“I’m coming back here with you, Dillon. No one else.”

The greens, blues, and purples swirled artistically and hid all the parts of her figure she didn’t like. The high neck and capped sleeves helped add to the modesty of the dress, until you looked closely and realized the top layer of the dress was sheer.
“Do you own anything that doesn’t make me want to strip you naked and skip the party?”
Katherine grinned. “I’m not sure. I was wearing jeans when we met.”
