"Mmmm?" He asks, his gaze on my mouth too. A shudder works through me, making Lucas take a deep breath. He runs his fingers through my arms and I close my eyes savoring his touch. 
  	His hands stops on my hair and holds it tight making me look directly into his eyes. "Tell me to stop," His face now inches from fine.
  	"No," I take a short breath, our lips almost touching. He makes a sound deep in his throat, his whole frame tense and his eyes full of emotion. I want him to make the next move so I stay like that breathing him in, waiting. 
  
  SHE HAS BEEN BURNED BEFORE AND ALL SHE WANTS IS A FRIEND.

Great way to meet! Love the fact that he's checking her out due to messy Cheetos eating, that was hilarious. And that she threw in that her Dad is a cop and she'd hunt him down if he doesn't pay. My kind of girl.

I appreciate her optimism :-) Starting over in life can be so challenging but she seems to be facing it and dealing with all the changes :-)

I have a funny feeling your character is going to see that guy again. real soon.  Hopefully he doesn't get on her bad side again.

I love your heroine. She's a take charge, no nonsense type of chick.
