EXCERPT: Maguire grinned when Nora set his hot cocoa down—complete with a candy cane in it.
For some reason, the fact that he’d ordered a hot cocoa made him that much more adorable to Sam. “No problem. Looks like your rush just cleared out.”
“It did, but we’ll see another one in an hour. Let me know if you guys need anything. Well, Sam, you let me know.” She shot Maguire a semi-serious glare. “I’m only being nice to you because you’re with a paying customer.”
“What?” He placed a hand on his chest, mock insulted.
She shot her gaze to Sam. “Jackson got too roughed up on the rink on Saturday and I know it was him,” she said, jerking a thumb at Maguire, “who bruised his ribs.”
Maguire snorted, which wasn’t a denial at all.
He snorted again, shaking his head. “Brotherly sparring. We had a free weekend and hit the ice for a friendly game of hockey. Us, the sheriff and some guys from the fire department. Nora’s only got a sister though. I think our type of roughhousing is a shock to her.”
“So you’re still playing hockey.” He’d been sexy on the ice. And okay, off it, but when he skated it was a thing of beauty.
“Yeah…wait, you’ve seen me?”
Her cheeks flushed even as she nodded, realizing her inadvertent little confession. “Yeah. Many years ago. When I was in middle school and there was no way you would have noticed me.” They were only a little over five years apart in age.
“Maybe I’ll invite you out for our next game, then. You can tell me if I’ve improved.”
“Or if you’ve gotten worse in your old age.”
“I’m messing with you.” Since she remembered when his birthday was, she knew that he’d just turned thirty and was well, delicious-looking.
His grin widened, taking him from good-looking to ridiculously handsome territory. Everything about him was sexy. With the sleeves of his long-sleeved T-shirt—advertising one of his auto repair shops—shoved up, he was showing off muscular forearms and a plethora of tattoos that made her mouth water.
