A Different Type of Meal -Snippet Sunday

~~Today's snippet contains mature themes~~

On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday

My current work in progress is DISARMING COWBOYS, book 7 of my Lone Wolves of Shay Falls series. 

Last time, our heroine was rescued from a werewolf attack by a sexy, naked shifter. Since the chapter I'm working on contains too many spoilers, let's jump back to where Jayel and David first meet.

Jayel's eyes shifted to this “David” Solomon was addressing, a man who wasn’t paying the slightest attention to his alpha’s orders. He was standing stiff as a fireplace log, staring at Jayel like she was a long-lost relative—or girlfriend. Either way, he was gaping at her like an altogether different type of meal than the rest of the pack was. He was far better looking, too, and considering how much skin she was currently being forced to endure, she could make that judgment from head to foot. Tall and blond with an athletic-meets-steroids build, David would be quite the heartthrob if not for his utterly ridiculous wolf in the headlights expression.

“David!” Solomon snapped, and the man’s head finally whipped around to where his alpha was glaring at him.

“Thank you for joining us,” Solomon said. “Care to get your ass outside and have the others bring in our guest?”

I love first meetings, both reading and writing them. Such fun. 
So what do you think?
