Hunter is a great catch; he’s sexy, charming, well-dressed, funny, generous, selfless, and very close to his family. He’s not a risk-taker, but he finds that pursuing Megan just might be the one risk he has to take. He’s sat by the sidelines for years while she had a crush on his younger brother, but now is his chance to get the girl with Will happily paired off with Cameron.
What Megan didn’t expect was to run into Hunter while she’s falling apart over the news of Nina’s impending departure and possible job loss. Megan is a waitress at the diner Nina owns and runs. Since Hunter has loved Megan for years, he immediately steps in to comfort her. Hunter really was never on Megan’s radar until he held her. Suddenly, she’s attracted to the hottest bachelor in town.
“I figured you’d have this evening planned down to the last minute.”
“Usually I would, but tonight I wanted to do something different and be more spontaneous.”
“Spontaneous. Is that painful for you?”
“Why do I have a feeling you’re making fun of me?”
“I would never do that.”
While Hunter is just so capable in every aspect of his life, it’s highly entertaining to see him so flustered around Megan. She’s so important to him, so he feels the pressure to get it right. Megan struggles to understand why Hunter would be attracted to her and isn’t sure she is capable of dealing with a serious relationship. Hunter has paid attention over the years, so he truly understands her. They have great chemistry and banter.
“I cook, I bake and I iron. Got anything to say about that?”
“Um, nothing other than can you bake me chocolate chip cookies?”
“Please,” he said with a scoff. “I could do that by the time I was eight.”
“I’ll confess to being around by this information.”
