Patrick, oblivious to what she just said, looked at Katy and grinned. “Look, Garrity, K.O. She really—” He pointed at her lab coat practically feeling her up.
Garrity grabbed his hand and nodded. “Yeah, Doyle, K.O.”
He looked at Katy apologetically and with a smile asked, “What does it stand for?”
Once again, this virile firefighter took Katy by surprise. She felt her cheeks flush slightly as she answered, “Katherine Olivia.”
Garrity’s smile changed and got a little bigger. “Katherine Olivia...I like that.”
Katy felt butterflies in her stomach and her cheeks burned a bright red. She excused herself and stepped outside of the room. She leaned her head back against the wall and closed her eyes. She wasn’t sure what just happened, but it had been a long time since a man made her feel all hot and bothered like this. She took a deep breath to try and slow her pulse. She almost jumped out of her skin when she felt a warm hand on her arm.
“Sorry! I didn’t mean to startle you,” the sexy firefighter said to her.
Katy shook her head trying to regain her composure. She could feel the warmth of where Garrity’s hand touched her spread throughout her whole body. She took a step back to put space between them.
Garrity cracked a smile. “I was wondering what time you got off. I would love to take you to breakfast to thank you for saving our proby.”
Her palms were sweating as she shook her head. “No need to do that. I was just doing my job.”
Garrity stepped closer to her, his hips just inches away from her. Katy glanced down and her mind wandered to places it shouldn’t. He touched her arm again as she bit her lip nervously. “I know it’s your job, but I’d really like to show you my appreciation and get to know you better.”
