Time to fire up the grill Readers!
Kim has enjoyed living in her new house for six months, but the neighbor remains a mystery, at least one particular man next door who always seems to have an eye on the lovely Kim.
When he seems to appear and introduce himself while Kim cooks a couple of burgers on the grill, she may just discover that her neighbor Logan has a very particular appetite, and he likes more than just his meat Well Done.
Kim has seen her mysterious neighbor many times since she moved in six months ago. Whether he was watching her on the day the movers unloaded her boxes from the truck or watching her as he cut the yard next door, the man was always watching.
Even though they’d never met, at least not face to face, Kim felt she knew something about the man, something different about the way he focused so intently on her, the way he could be felt staring before she even really looked back at him.
It isn’t until a summer barbecue, Kim out by the grill on her deck cooking up just a small meal for herself, that the man finally makes a move to meet her. His name is Logan it seems and Logan enjoys a woman who eats meat.
The man has a way with words, a strange way of disarming Kim, putting her both at ease and making her tense as he steps so close, pushes so tight against her, personal space a thing of the past.
Before Kim can even really understand what is happening, her mysterious neighbor Logan is taking the tongs from her, explaining how he likes his burgers well done, insisting he likes many things well done, things which soon seem to include her as well.
Kim has always enjoyed time by the grill, the smell of burgers cooking, her appetite a healthy one on summer days like this.
However appetites change and she might just find herself hungry for something ultimately appetizing to Logan, her new neighbor with a special charm for getting what he most wants.
One thing is certain this Readers Choice Month, the burgers may be burned but the woman cooking them is going to be perfectly Well Done.
