Written initially as a straight contemporary I couldn't resist adding a hint of something more...
Oh. My. God! This is David? He’s gorgeous!
With cat-green eyes and a physique to make any girl swoon. Even better, he was taller than she. She couldn’t control her exhalation. A tiny “oh,” then she smiled.
The first real smile of the day.
“Hi, David. I’m Genie, one of Michael’s mess mates.”
Life’s pretty much thrown everything it can at David: His wife, Karin left him after their child died. Watching his best friend marry his ex-wife sums up the ruins of his life. Attending the wedding could sink him further.
Being a bridesmaid at her best friend Michael's wedding, wasn’t on Genie’s bucket list. No, she’d rather be his bride. Watching the man she's lusted after, for more years than she’d like to admit, marry another woman, was not the highlight of her life. But meeting the brides ex-husband might be.
