Today you get to meet the hero of I Do. . .or Die. The previous snippets have all featured Shelby, the commitment-phobe bridesmaid, at the wedding that turns her life upside down.
In this bit, Shelby gets her first look at Ryan Nichols when he shows up at the hospital where her friend Alexa is recuperating from her minor wound. Here's Shelby's description of the man she doesn't know yet is a police detective assigned to the case. . .
Just then, as if he’d been cued, in walked the man who was going to make my life miserable. I could feel it, just by the way he stopped in the doorway and inspected us, his eyebrows raised, like he'd finally located the missing cast members of a white-trash wedding sitcom.
And for some reason, I felt wildly attracted to him.
He was probably six feet tall, and athletic, judging by how gracefully he moved. His sandy blond hair was ready for a haircut, but he’d probably wait a week or two before realizing it, yet it still looked good curled over his suit collar. His tie was loosened, as if he was at the end of a long day and ready to have a few beers with his buddies, but obviously we had derailed that plan.
