Chloe Walters had no idea that the handsome stranger she slept with the night before would be her new boss. Or that she’d be the number one suspect in his corporate espionage investigation. She's on a hunt of her own to uncover the scammer. But Sean’s idea of cat-and-mouse has higher stakes than just her job.
She resisted the urge to fidget, knowing he was establishing his dominance. She didn’t relish the thought that he was a dog and she was the nearest tree. The silence stretched between them until she wanted to claw at the air until she could breath again.
She was just about to scream when he looked up. She jerked as his green gaze lasered into her brown one.
“So I was surprised to find you worked at Dorset.”
“Yeah, well, no more than I was to discover who you were.” Or that my new boss knew how to give an amazing orgasm using just his tongue.
He leaned back in the chair, then steepled his fingers beneath his chin. “I’ve been reviewing your personnel file. You graduated magna cum laude from NYU with a degree in computer science, yet you work as an admin.”
She stiffened. “Yeah?”
“Why is that?”
She shrugged. “It was the end of the Internet boom. I wanted to live in Denver, and Mr. Dorset assured me that there was potential for advancement.”
“And you believed him?”
She narrowed her eyes, unsure of the direction of this conversation. “I’m not sure what you’re asking me.”
He leveled his stare on her. “It’s just that I’m a little surprised that someone with your stellar résumé is content to underachieve.”
“What does any of this have to do with the business at hand?” She hated the defensive tone of her voice. She especially hated he wasn’t saying anything that she didn’t tell herself on a daily basis. She already felt like a chump for staying and believing Dorset’s promises. The last thing she needed was for Sean to so accurately pin her as a dupe.
“Nothing. I was merely curious.”
She crossed her arms over her chest and glared at him. “Well, I’m done with twenty questions, so let’s move on.”
“Okay. Just one last question, though. What do we do now?”
She pretended ignorance. “Now I help make this acquisition as smooth as possible.”
He smiled. “I’m thinking more along the lines of the fact that I want nothing more than to take you, bend you over this desk, and fuck you until neither of us can stand.”
Now writing that was fun. So is this...
