Here's a look at An Informal Affair, which can be found in the Love at First Laugh box set, http://amzn.to/2l7CQY3
Lia Promise stared at the man across the table from her. This couldn’t be happening.
He reached for his fork, pried one of the tines wide, and used it to scratch the inside of his ear.
When had her life turned into this?
Oh yeah, that was right. Maverick was to blame. His ridiculous dare had landed her in this mess.
Even with him and his ridiculous dare, she didn’t need to subject herself to… whatever passed for normal dinner etiquette in his world.
“Look, Albert, it’s been swell getting to know you, but I don’t think this is working out. At least let me pay for my half of the meal.”
Albert eyed her, his brows drawn together. “You sent me the invite. Doesn’t that mean you’re supposed to pay for the whole meal?”
Lia stared at him. Did the man not understand the concept of dating? Sure, she reached out to him initially, but this date had been his idea. His. Not hers.
She forced a smile to her stiff lips, waved to their waiter, and stood. “Dinner’s on me, Albert. Enjoy.”
As she sidestepped a server on her way to the cash register, Lia pulled out her phone. She shouldn’t take so much delight in telling Maverick all about her bad dates, but doing so had somehow become the highlight of her week.
Lia typed out a text as she waited for the waiter to run her debit card. Got another whopper for Sunday lunch. You won’t believe this one.
