Just then I heard my name being called and scanned the scene looking for the source. There, standing by the huge barbecue pit and manning the meat, totally topless and looking seriously sexy as hell, was Dean.
“Get your ass over here, gorgeous,” he called with a smile. His voice gave me butterflies, the smooth, commanding tone sending chills down my body; the good kind. There was something amazing about this man and my body knew it. I couldn’t help but return his smile as I excused myself from the girls and carefully made my way over to him, dodging a group of small boys as they played tag with each other.
“You’re home early,” Dean remarked as he comfortably slung one arm around my neck and pulled me into his side. Mine automatically encircled his waist and I leaned into him and I sighed as the tension immediately ebbed out of me. Dean had become my safe place, my fortress of strength; I knew I could get through anything with him by my side.
