This is my 38th installment in my Man Crush Monday meme. Since I read mostly romance, I thought I’d share some of my “book crushes” with you, and possibly introduce you to some new reading material.
My Man Crush Monday for this week is Ryan Pierce from Delivery Girl by Lily Kate.
Good things come in extra-large, smoking hot packages. Things like pizza.
The very pizzas that I deliver for my dad’s restaurant, Peretti’s Pizza. It’s a temporary job, something to pay the bills until I graduate from school, but it does the trick. In fact, it’s working quite well until Ryan Pierce of the LA Lightning decides to order a pizza from me, and life as I know it turns upside down.
You see, Ryan Pierce doesn’t just open his front door. He opens it buck naked. And suddenly, I’m not the one boasting the biggest, hottest package in the room. However, it’s what happens next that makes my stomach flip upside down whenever my phone beeps. Ryan starts to call, and then text, and then fifteen pizza deliveries and one hot-as-sin kiss later, we’re friends. So when he asks me to be his fake girlfriend at his brother’s wedding, I’m happy to help. But the longer we pretend, the more I worry that this is one package I might not be able to handle.
Ryan Pierce is a professional hockey player in Minnesota, but he’s in California to meet with a new agent about a possible new move to the LA team. He orders a pizza and opens the door wearing only a towel to the cutest delivery girl he’s ever seen. He then proceeds to order more pizzas then one person should, just to be able to spend more time with Andi, the delivery girl. Ryan was sweet, romantic and a true gentleman. He was so sweet and one of the best guys I read in a while.
