“I could see the coach leaning over, placing red, white, and blue basketballs on a rack. He was tall, maybe 6’2”, and very muscular. He exhibited pure power. He must’ve logged in several hours a week at the gym. He wore black track pants and a tight black t-shirt. His arms were so huge, it looked like they were going to burst out of their sleeves. From that angle, I had a perfect view of his perfect butt. Now, I loved me some Wasif, but this man was fine!
We were only a few feet away from him when Morgan said, “Coach, this is our mom.”
The coach turned around and faced me with a bright smile. A handsome face to match that body. Mm mm mm.
He extended his hand. “Mrs. Dandridge?” he said, but as soon as the words left his mouth, his smile disappeared. His eyes changed. Do I know this man?”
Happy reading! I’ll post our rating of the book soon!
