How did you two meet-

For each #MeetCute Book, we’ll share a couples interview in the style of the “When Harry Met Sally” clips. (Check them out here!)

In WHAT I WASN’T LOOKING FOR Mary and Austin are just looking for a summer fling… but sometimes love finds you when you least expect it.

Austin: Well, the first time she met me, she thought I was so hot, she sold me a bag of ice.

Mary: Pftt… puh-lease.  We met at church.  He walked right into the middle of mass, and I knew immediately he was out of place.

Austin: Hey!  I do go to church, you know.  I’m not a heathen or something.

Mary: Fine, you go to church.  But you’re not Catholic.  None of the Catholics I know have foot fetishes.  And they certainly don’t let it show during mass either.

Austin: (smug grin) I do not have a foot fetish.  I have a toe fetish.

Mary: (laughing) Oh my word, do you know how disgusting that sounds?

Austin: (leaning forward and cupping a hand to his mouth) Don’t tell her, but the truth is I have a fetish for that sexy red nail polish.  And when she starts wiggling those toes . . .  (whistles suggestively)

Mary: (rolling her eyes and smacking his arm) Austin Hayworth, we were in church.  I cannot believe your mind was in the gutter during mass.

Austin: Listen, babe, I’m no longer talking about church.  I’ve moved on.  I’m talking about when you wiggle your toes while I’m doing that thing ….

Mary: (blushes and slaps her hand over his mouth with an embarrassed giggle) Austin!

Austin: (shoving her hand away) See that pretty blush on those cheeks?  And that laugh.  It’s no wonder a simple summer fling stole my heart.

Mary: You didn’t know it stole your heart at the time.

Austin: I knew it.  You had me long before I drove away from Simoneaux Bayou after that first week.  You were the one who had to be convinced.

Mary: True.  I admit it.  I fought it a long time, but in the end, there was just no resisting his charms.

Austin: Just remember what I said.  I want this to be the longest fling in the history of flings.

Mary:  Almost sounds like forever.

Austin: (winking at her before taking her hand in his) Forever just might do.
