Corked and Tapped:
Because the best stories never start
with someone eating a salad.
USA Today Bestselling Author
“Today marks five years sober.” That explained why he’d ordered the whiskey and then covered it with a napkin. It did not explain why his gaze penetrated her so deeply or why he’d chosen to call her a brat. And it certainly didn’t explain why her breath hitched every time he glanced his direction.
Devin is seasonal help at Corked and Tapped and tonight the staff had it’s annual holiday party. She was busy behind the bar but the man at the end just drew her attention like no other. It was disconcerting.
This is a favorite scene.
Devin considered keeping her distance from the mysterious man at the end of the bar. She waited half an hour before giving in to temptation and approaching him again. Even without looking at him, she could feel his power. Her constant awareness of him never wavered. She knew he was staring at her. She could feel it without glancing. It was distracting.
Tonight was difficult enough since the entire staff was temporary. The owner, Mike, intentionally held the staff party on a Tuesday night, the least busy night of the week, but there were still enough patrons to keep Devin hopping.
She didn’t dare touch the glass of whiskey when she returned to refill his seltzer. Nor did she meet his gaze. Something about him had her cowering to him, and not in a bad way. In a way she knew was submissive. Did he feel it too?
“Is this your full-time job?” he asked, his fingers brushing hers as she returned his glass.
She lifted her face. “Nope. I’m seasonal. I help out during the holidays.”
He cocked his head to one side. “What do you normally do?”
“I’m a grad student, studying economics. I work as much as I can during my breaks to pay the bills.”
His eyes widened. “Economics?”
She smirked and rolled her eyes. “Don’t look so surprised. There is a brain inside my pretty little head. I promise.”
His wide eyes narrowed and he leaned over the bar. Inches separated their faces, and she stopped breathing.
