Your Tuesday Teaser!
Just looking at her wrapped in those layers of chocolate made him want to run his hands over her from head to toe which would be quickly followed by his tongue. He wondered if she tasted as good as she looked. Because she looked delectable. Like a Christmas treat all wrapped up ready for him to open. He had every intention of getting her under him as soon as possible.
“Will that be all?”
“And a blueberry scone,” the goddess replied. Her sultry voice matched her sultry body.
“On the house,” David said smiling as he nudged aside his barista. “I’ll take it from here, Louise.”
Louise dutifully went off to brew her latte.
“That’s very generous of you,” the woman said. In her suede-gloved hands, she held a designer wallet with the embossed letters LV. “But not necessary.”
“Oh, I think it is.” David punched a few buttons on the register and swiped his manager’s card. “I insist.”
She paused a moment, considering, before putting away her wallet. “All right, then. I can’t argue. Especially since your competition up the street has a line out the door.”
“Competition?” He played dumb, hoping to get some insider information.
“You didn’t know about Java Perks?” The beginning smile tipped the corners of her perfect mouth. “It opened last week.”
David glanced around again to see only his faithful regulars. He was grateful to them. His mind raced, trying to come up with a marketing plan to reward loyal customers. But marketing wasn’t his thing. That was all left to his mother, Jody. Still, he made a mental note to do some internet research to come up with creative ways to get his clientele back.
“You didn’t know,” she said. “Did you?”
“Of course, I did.” He didn’t want to admit it. “They’ll be lucky to last a week. We’ve been around nearly ten years.”
Never mind they’d nearly lost the place to nasty developers, only to be saved by his bad-guy-turned-good-guy brother. Mark got half ownership out of the place and a girlfriend. Sometimes life wasn’t fair.
To take his mind off the thought of losing half his business to Java Perks, David packaged her blueberry scone as her order was called out from the other end of the bar.
“Thanks for the comp.” She dazzled him with a smile that seemed genuine. “Glad I stopped in.”
He watched her as she sauntered down the length of the bar, her hips swaying in the mini skirt that left not much to his imagination. All he could think of was running his hands up those soft legs, cupping that round bottom and thrusting deep inside her while she moaned his name.
And suddenly an idea struck him. He fumbled for his business card in his shirt pocket and found the pen he’d discarded on the counter. He scrawled a discount on the back of one of his cards.
“Before you go,” he called, nearly running over his barista trying to get to her. She paused at the door, giving him a quizzical look. “Why don’t you come back tomorrow and bring a few friends? I’ll be here again.”
He handed her the card. She clutched her bag in the same hand as her coffee, doing her best to juggle the two so she could take the card. She skimmed it quickly then looked up and met his eyes. Her mouth quirked in a half grin.
“I’ll see what I can do.” She paused, glanced down at the card before meeting his gaze again. Those coffee-colored eyes sent his mind reeling. “David.”
