She turned her attention back to me. ‘Now don’t you go falling in love with Joshua.’ Bridget joined us. ‘All the girls do,’ Mia carried on. ‘Consider this a warning. Be prepared.’ She turned to blushing Bridget. ‘Sweetness, tell Sophia what happened the day you met Joshua.’

‘Ooh, Joshua.’ A dreamy gaze relaxed Bridget’s face. ‘Joshua, Joshua, Joshua. Now that’s a man,’ she sang. ‘He’s the most strikingly irresistible thing on two legs you’ll ever meet. The moment he took my hand in his, when he introduced himself to me, I couldn’t function. I felt his hand set mine on fire. Honestly, Sophia, whatever Mia has told you is the truth. Maybe even a bit less than the truth. She tried to warn me but it wasn’t enough. Read my lips: You will fall in love with Joshua. You will.’ She lightly touched my arm. ‘There’s no doubt about it. You’ll fall hard for him. I did.’ She placed a hand gently around her never-ending neck. ‘Every woman that crosses his path does. He’s so unaware of his power that it makes him even more attractive. I would’ve left Wayne for him but he didn’t want me. I couldn’t interest him in the least. He’s more into those who own their own companies.’ She winked at Mia. Mia playfully slapped her on the back, her trademark slap. ‘So there’s a bit of competition flying about whenever he’s around. Good luck is all I can say to you. Try not to allow such an obsession to consume you. Like it did me. Thankfully, Wayne never noticed. I don’t know how but he never.’ Bridget stopped talking when Wayne stood at her side.

I got the impression that there was a deeper layer to the Joshua and Mia story.
