Cade wiped his fingers on a napkin and took another big bite. I loved watching his obvious pleasure in my baking. There was something so sensual about the way he enjoyed eating my desserts.

“I should be mad at you, you know.” He eyed the brownies in the display case with a hopeful expression, so I got him another one and added it to his plate while he downed his glass of milk.
“Why would you be mad at me? I bake good brownies and have nice boobs, remember?” I topped off his milk with a smile.

“That’s exactly why. I’m adding an extra two miles to my daily run to make up for all this good eating, and I’ve been suffering from UHO’s for days.” He took another greedy bite of brownie.

“What is a UHO?” I frowned and put my chin in my hand, studying him. “Should I be worried?”

“An Unexpected Hard On.” Cade delivered that line with a perfectly straight face, but I snorted with laughter and shook my head at him.

“Don’t laugh, missy. You try meeting with clients while having stray thoughts about the hot baker girl down the street. Then deal with the fallout. I’ve had three meetings where I had to hold my notepad in my lap to cover up the evidence.” He picked a brownie crumb off his shirt.

“I’m so sorry for your inconvenience.” I tried for a straight face to match his but failed miserably.

“Don’t be sorry. I know a good remedy for UHO’s. I’ll be soliciting your help with that at some point.” He licked his lips in anticipation, and I shivered.

Cade noticed my shiver, and his grin got wider. “Now about karaoke night. It’s tonight, actually.”

“Really? I thought it was a weekend thing.” I took his empty plate and put it in the dishwasher.

“I think it usually is, but when I asked the manager at Maude’s about it, he said come tonight, and he would get us set up. I’m noticing things are pretty informal at Maude’s.” He drank his milk in three big swallows, and I watched his throat work with interest.

Why was that so sexy?

And it was even sexier when he came around the counter and rinsed his glass before placing it in the dishwasher, too.

I appreciated a man with a sexy body, but one who knew how to clean up after himself? That’s what really made me weak in the knees. At this rate, if he started washing dishes by hand, I might have no choice but to strip naked for him.

Cade pulled me close and nuzzled my hair. I buried my nose in his chest and inhaled his manly scent. And we stayed that way for several long minutes, just enjoying a full body hug.

This was bliss.
