Happy Father's Day - Devin's Second Chance #2

Weekend Writing Warriors Logo
Happy Father's Day!

Thank you for stopping by!  I'm excited to share a few more sentences from my contemporary romance, Devin's Second Chance!

About this excerpt: In honor of Father's Day, I wanted to include something with Claire's dad, so these eight sentences are from much later in the book than last week's excerpt. This snippet is from when Devin meets Claire's parents. Claire's mom speaks first.

~~~~~

          "Is this man the reason you are staying here?"
          If only the storm brewing overhead could break now. 
          Devin winked at her.  Good God, what was he thinking?  "Mr. and Mrs.  Best," he said, "it has been a pleasure." He nodded to them, but instead of getting in his truck, he went to the house. Her parents stared at Devin. 
          "Is he a real cowboy?" her father asked.

~~~~~

[A Short Disclaimer: I've had to modify the sentences a little to fit within the eight sentence limit.]

Meeting someone's parents for the first time can be a bit awkward, but I think Devin handles this very well, don't you?

This was funny. Devin is so direct when Clair seems to want to hide.
