JACKSON by Violet Duke
Leila walked over and held her hand out for Jackson to shake.
The casual, completely normal gesture had the same effect as a speeding bus barreling into him from out of the blue.
He wasn’t blind, he’d noticed that she was beautiful before—from a good twenty or thirty yards away. Up close, however, he made the dangerous discovery that she was pretty, too. It was a weird distinction he made that neither Bennett nor Donovan agreed with. But for Jackson, ‘pretty’ was sometimes a bigger deal than beautiful, which in one way or another, all women were.
Prettiness was more personal, more affectionate. Customizable. While beauty could simply be admired, prettiness could almost always prompt a smile.
For Jackson, Leila was absolutely his kind of pretty. Country girl cute with carnivorous curves that hinted at her preference of steak over salad, guileless eyes that he’d already seen could turn into a lethal glare when needed, and wholly reactive expressions so candid—when she allowed them to roam free on her face—that they seemed to feed directly from her heart. Add to that, the fact that she was unknowingly, almost accidentally, sexy made her all the more unforgettable.
In a word, pretty.
Again, so much more than just beautiful.
