I hate Mondays. Every week as the town Mayor I have to do a radio show with Will Watson, a journalist who blames me (incorrectly, I might add) for his sister’s death. I know he’s given up life as a foreign correspondent to look after his nieces and nephew, so I’m trying to be patient, but he doesn’t make it easy.
I know under that gruff, sexy exterior lies a good man. I just wonder if he’s ever going to let anyone, especially me, see it.
We may not have a future together, but I wouldn’t mind exploring the present.
Mondays are my favorite day of the week. Sparring with Mayor Morgan reminds me I’m still alive. When she’s sitting here, in her prim suits, answering my questions, I feel like my old self. So I’m shocked to learn she dreads our encounters, especially when I discover that beneath that tough exterior is a heart of gold who’d do anything for anyone, especially my family.
As our walls come down, I find a fire with her I’ve never felt before…but I don’t have anymore to give just now.
I don’t want to go back to arguing, but I don’t see how we can move forward.
