my parents and how screwed up my life was because of it, but for some reason, Luke was easy to talk to. But I knew my limits. “After my parents died, I moved in with my grandmother until I was twelve. When she passed away, I was adopted by some family friends who also lived in Greenville.”
    “Oh.” A sullen look crossed his face. “I didn’t realize your parents had died. I’m sorry to hear that.”
    “Thanks. It was a long time ago.” I quickly asked him a question, not wanting him to pry for details. “What part of Dallas do you live in?”
    “The Highlands area.”
    “Aw, the Highlands.”
    “I know.” He rolled his eyes. “I hate telling people that’s where my parents live.”
    “I understand. I mean . . . ” I gave him a quick scan from head to toe. “You don’t look like the Highlands type.”
    “There’s a type?”
    “Uh, yeah. Pressed collared shirts, plaid bottoms, and sockless with loafers. Oh, and driving expensive cars like Range Rovers, Lexus, Mercedes . . . ”
    He laughed. “Sounds like my parents and my other sister, Ashley, and her husband, Ryan.”
    I shrugged. “I guess they fit in perfectly.”
    “Trust me, they do. So, did you go to Greenville High?”
    “Yes.” I reluctantly admitted. “And you were homeschooled.”
    His eyes narrowed. “How did you know that?” A second later, his eyes relaxed. “Never mind, Lexi told you.”
    “Yeah, she did.” I smiled. “She said it sucked.”
    “It did.”
    “I could never homeschool my kids.” I shuddered at the thought. “I don’t have the patience, and I’d be dying to get them out of my hair. Let someone else deal with them for a few hours.”
    “I guess it’s safe to say you’re in no hurry to get married and have a family.”
    “Very safe.” I emphasized each word.
    “And it doesn’t sound like you’re majoring in education?” He inclined his head, and I loved the way the front of his hair swooped down, partially covering his right eye. It was sexy.
    “Oh, hell no.” I licked my spoon. “I’m a fine arts major studying photography.”
    “Cool. Maybe you can take some shots of me?” He gave me a sexy pose.
    “Sure.” I bit my lip, thinking of how I’d love to take some pictures of him with or without clothes on. Luke was gorgeous—model-like with a strong jaw-line, perfect nose, perfect teeth, and light baby-blue eyes that I could stare at until he went to sleep. “My goal is to open up my own studio one day. What about you? Do you want to be a professional player?”
    “No.” He took a deep breath and let it out slowly. “I play for fun, even though that’s what my parents want.”
    “Don’t take this the wrong way, but your parents seem to be a little controlling.”
    “You have no idea. They think I’m going to land a contract with a professional team, but the truth is, I’m not that great of a player. My roommate, Collin—”
    “Is that Lexi’s boyfriend?”
    “Yeah.” He nodded. “Now he’s good enough to land with a Major League team.” He licked the sides of the cone, the gelato running down to his fingers. “I can’t wait until I graduate so I don’t have to deal with my parents anymore.”
    “Sorry they’re that way with you. So tell me, what do you want to do?”
    “I’d like to be a sports trainer—and that’s the reason I’m majoring in sports and exercise sciences. I just got a job at the rec center, and hopefully I can get hired on by PHU’s baseball team as their trainer when I graduate.” He sucked a big lump of gelato into his mouth.
    “That would be awesome.”
    He nodded with a huge grin that quickly turned into a twisted face of pain. He squeezed his eyes tightly as his tanned skin flashed bright red. “Are you okay?” I reached across the table for his hand, but it flew to his head, and he balled the other one in to a fist.
    “Yeah.” He nodded. “Brain freeze.”
    “Press your tongue to the roof of your mouth. Like this.” I demonstrated,
