“Nice costume, Sandra Dee.” She couldn’t believe it when she found out she’d been matched up with her boss of all people for tonight’s Halloween costume party. She’d been half in love with him for two years. But he has a no fraternization policy, and it’s going to take more than tight leather pants to get him to revise the employee handbook. Or will it?
Corked and Tapped: Because the best stories never start with someone eating a salad.
Dressed as Sandra Dee, Clara is helping her best friend, Maddie set up for the Company Costume party. In a wild brain storm Maddie thought it would be fun to match up folks from different departments by costume.
Clara’s a little bit afraid to see who the ‘Danny’ Maddie matched her with and when she realizes it’s her boss Landon, well things get very interesting. Only it wasn’t Maddie who matched her, Landon tracked down the guy and traded with him.
This is a favorite scene.
“What’s the matter?”
She lifted her gaze and tugged on the collar of her stupid jacket with one hand. “Nothing. It’s just hot in here.”
He frowned. “So, take off the jacket.”
She shook her head. “It would ruin the costume.”
“I’m pretty sure between the heels, the leather pants, the teased hair, the red lipstick, and the wad of gum, you’re safe.”
She’d forgotten the gum, and she immediately grabbed a bar napkin and spit it out.
Landon leaned in closer. “Besides, I’m curious about this 1950s top you’ve got on under that jacket.” His gaze lowered to her chest.
She self-consciously lowered a hand to tug the top up a bit, making sure her girls were still covered. She was wearing a black strapless bra under the tube top, but the lack of material still unnerved her. She wasn’t the sort to wear something strapless. “Yeah, well, I don’t need everyone in the office accidentally seeing more than they should. Monday morning would be an uncomfortable day if there are pics floating around of me having a wardrobe malfunction.”
He laughed, harder than she’d ever heard him before. He was far more relaxed outside of the office. And he shocked her to death when he tugged his hand from his pocket and set a finger on her exposed belly. “You have like one inch of skin showing. I don’t think it’s going to cause inner-office sexting. There are several employees dressed in far less material than you.” He punctuated his words by dragging that finger across her midriff until he tapped her belly button.
She sucked in a sharp breath, goose bumps rising on her skin. Surely she was reading too much into this banter. He could not be hitting on her. Gah. It was impossible to know for sure. The last thing she wanted was to misinterpret his intentions. It would be extremely embarrassing if she did. And she still had to work for the man five days a week.
