Magic at Work
by Sotia Lazu
She thought he hated her. He thought she was too good for him. Fate proved them both wrong.
On a slow day at work, Lexi Adams discovers an on-line erotic romance novel. Intrigued by the similarities she shares with the heroine, she starts reading and becomes enamored with the leading man. The problem is, she’s only able to access the novel on her work computer.
Ric Ackart, head of the IT department, suspects she's slacking off and decides to find out what she does in front of her computer screen all day. His surprise at what takes up her time is overshadowed by the fact that the novel's leading man shares his face and the name he used years ago..
Now Ric is forced to come to terms with his feelings for her―but Lexi isn't willing to share more than her body...
Author's Note: This book contains graphic language and explicit sexual situations that some may find objectionable.
She was obviously at a loss for words. He had her trapped between his body and the fridge, and those damned gorgeous eyes of hers were burning him.
“So? Care to fill a bloke in?” He cocked his head to side and licked his lips slowly.
He didn’t miss how her gaze zeroed in on his tongue, or how her body tensed. If he had her figured out, which he thought he did, she’d be shoving him away and bolting any minute now.
Instead of pulling free, though, Lexi grabbed his neck and pressed her body against his. Before Ric knew what was happening, she raised her face to his and crashed her lips to his.
Ric couldn’t process what was happening, so he didn’t even try, choosing instead to lose himself in the wonderful sensations her unexpected kiss evoked.
Her lips were incredibly soft, still carrying a fruity flavor, even though all but a few traces of the lip-gloss she’d worn was gone. He craved to devour them. She moaned against his mouth, but he resisted the urge to slip his tongue past her lips, drink her in, get drunk off her. That changed the second her tongue came out to trace his lower lip. He simply couldn’t hold back—didn’t have the will anymore. He deepened the kiss, letting his tongue brush hers timidly at first, inhaling her breath and savoring her taste.
Gradually emboldened by her whimpers, he began mapping the inside of her mouth, recognizing the flavor he’d first noticed as that of the wine he’d brought. That made him even more desperate to consume her. He brought his free hand to her face and cupped her cheek while he ground his hips against her.
Her hand found its way to his chest, giving him pause. She didn’t push him away; she held on to his shirt as if for dear life.
Somehow, although her body was flush against his, she didn’t feel close enough. He wanted her inside his skin, if that were possible. Letting go of her wrist, he tried to wrap his arm around her waist.
He was a heartbeat too slow.
The moment her arm was free, Lexi swung the plastic bottle, brought it down on his head, and shoved hard against his chest. The stunned step back he took was all she needed to hightail it out of the room without a backward glance.
