Evan smiled at Abby as the elevator rose up.

"Thank you," he said, his blue eyes were full of warmth and his lips were oh-so-inviting. His strong build filled out his white oxford shirt and his butt was just right in sharp dark blue jeans.

Evan had a flair for fun

Aww!!! Incredibly romantic. Evan is an opportunistic fellow. My goodness the elevators is redolent with pheromones. This is an exciting cliff hanger. I found myself leaning in to return her advance on behalf of Evan. Great story!!!!
