Good Character By Shannon Yarbrough

July 28, 2011 Comments Off on Good Character By Shannon Yarbrough

We met in a bookstore near the bestseller table. He had chocolate brown eyes and hair as black as ink. His body was lean but he was broad in the shoulders. He had a flat stomach beneath his tight white tank top. Arms, legs, and muscles bulged in all the right places. His skin was as smooth and creamy as cocoa. I hadn’t picked up anyone in a bookstore, but all of this from him and just the first page! I never judge a book by its cover, but this book had sex written all over it.
