Jason wants to break his rules, but sabotage is on the horizon.
As a rule, Jason Michaels never dates co-workers or subordinates. Whenever his assistant GG it around, he finds the rule difficult to keep. Not only was she his sous chef before a tragic accident left him blind, but she’s followed him to help in his lucrative food truck business.
Greta “GG” Gaines has loved Jason as long as she’s known him. She knows he lives an alternative lifestyle, but she’s willing to learn in order to be with him. At long last, romance blossoms between them, but her efforts will have to face one more challenge.
As the two pursue the chemistry between them a much larger threat looms. Someone is intent on sabotaging the business. Will their love and devotion be enough to overcome their obstacles? Or will yet another villain prevail?
GG stood on the house stoop, the box of leftovers in a bag over her wrist. Jason stood in front of her, fumbling with his key. She knew from experience not to ask him if he needed help. Actually, now that she thought about it, she didn’t hear the jingle of keys, but a series of beeps.
“You got a new lock?”
He chuckled. “August, that’s the other woman I date. She talked me into getting a keyless entry. What she didn’t tell me was when the batteries go and I don’t change them right away, I have to use my key.”
“August?” GG savored the name. “What’s she like?”
“Sassy, independent, and has a big heart. She’ll like you.” He stepped aside so she could enter. “She has a live-in love, but I’m not sure if he’s proposed to her yet.”
GG closed and locked the door and traversed the short hall into the kitchen. “Will I get to meet her?” She placed the leftovers in the fridge. “I put the box on the second shelf, lefthand side.”
She turned to find Jason in her personal space. He was so close she could smell his aftershave, a blend of citrus and pine. The heat of his body bled into hers. She closed her eyes, savoring the nearness. They’d worked in close quarters before, but this was different. They weren’t boss and subordinate, but man and woman. The thought was freeing and scary all at the same time.
She pressed her hands to his chest, marveling at the firmness there. A sigh left his lips, and it warmed her right down to her toes.
“I hope you don’t think this is too forward, but I’ve been wanting to do this for a very long time.” Gently, he tilted her chin and pressed his lips to hers.
