It's been a while but here’s another short excerpt from my WIP.
It took some time for them to return to normal.
“Evie,” Antonio whispered against her ear.
The warmth of his breath made her shiver, and she looked into his fathomless blue eyes.
“We better get back to work and let the buyers in, don’t you think?”
She nodded, feeling a little embarrassed. She had never done anything like this at work before. And this was a new job.
After cleaning up in the office bathroom, Evie smoothed down her clothes. She walked back to the office where Antonio was waiting.
His smile caused her heart to flutter.
“You have a glow in your cheeks,” he said, as he reached for her. He gave her a small peck on the lips. “Let’s go.”
She followed him out to the gallery and clenched her hands together nervously. She hoped no one would notice her discomfort.
Antonio walked off to the entrance and his manager, Matteo, spoke to him sharply before he turned her way.
She swallowed the lump in her throat as Matteo made his way to her.
“Well, congratulations,” he said snidely, “You’ve set a new record.”
“What do you mean?” she said with a lift of her chin.
He glanced at his watch. “You’ve known Antonio for less than three hours and you’ve already spread your legs.”
Embarrassment flushed her cheeks. There was nothing she could say to refute his words.
“I thought with your qualifications that I wouldn’t have to go through this again,” he remarked.
She frowned, becoming annoyed by his tone. “What do you mean by that?”
He stared at her with blazing brown eyes. “Antonio fucks all his assistants.”
