Another Great Short Read

I've been reading quite a few shorts.  The latest is Morgan K. Wyatt's Blind Date.  For a short read, this story had a lot -- charm, humor, sex...

Blurb for Blind Date:

Darla never had time for love. Even though she worked in the perfume industry that epitomizes romance, no appropriate male ever wandered into the picture. Maybe that's why she accepted her friend's suggestion to fix up her up. Desperation, and a desire to make sure she even remembered how to act like a woman as opposed to a corporate warrior. Too bad, her arranged date fell on the weekend before her meeting with some hot shot Italian nobleman she needed to sign for her company's continued success.

Even more ironic, her blind date Alex, besides being the poster child for all things delicious, has a sexy Italian accent. The accent alone should have reminded her of the need to prepare for her meeting. Instead charmed by Alex's old world manners and animal magnetism, she allows him to take charge and forgets about business. Two things she'd never done before.


Excerpt: 

Her gaze started at his shoes and roamed up his dress pants. He dressed up for her, how nice. He’d loosened his tie and rolled up his shirtsleeves, maybe his version of business casual. Nice strong chin and olive toned skin made the man appear more mysterious. She’d always preferred the Mediterranean look. So far, she liked everything she saw. He smiled, revealing a nice set of teeth. Smiling meant…yes, he was staring at her and walked toward her. The dating gods finally took pity on her.
 She waited until he stood a mere foot from her. “Alex?” she asked hopefully, praying this time her luck would turn for the good. He grinned down at her and raised one eyebrow questioningly.
 “You wish for me to be Alex?”
 “Oh, yes.” She practically sighed the words. He had an odd way of phrasing, but he had an accent. Marlene didn’t mention he’d be foreign. Things just kept getting better and better.
His eyes twinkled. “For you, I will be. I am at your service.” He motioned to a bar stool as if asking to sit. “Your name, if I may ask?

      “Darla.” He should have known her name. Didn’t Marlene tell him? Probably his way of making small talk. Darla inhaled the scent of Alex. Hmmm, he smelled as good as the scampi aroma riding the air.
