In seconds he’d put the pan in the sink, moved in front of her and caught her.

Myles stood utterly still, staring at her. His hands on her. “You’re so beaut--” He looked down and backed away.
“I’m so what?”
“Distracting? I think you were gonna tell me how beautiful I am.” She smiled, positive she had full-on dimple-age going.
“I want to… I mean, you are. But--” He sighed heavily. “Weren’t you grilling me?”
