For years, Sean O’Dell has hidden his past as a Hollywood heartthrob from everyone at the Sweet Salvation Brewery. However, the arrival of nosey efficiency expert Natalie Sweet threatens the status quo. It doesn’t help that with her glasses, buttoned-up sweaters and always pulled-back hair that she’s uncovered one secret already: His attraction for hot librarian types.
Natalie has had enough of the strong-and-silent Sean submarining her efforts to change the brewery for the better. She’s ready to do whatever it takes to make her vision a reality, even if that means taking down the pig-headed and too-hot-for-his-own-good brewmaster.
Sizzling attraction battles stubborn determination as Natalie and Sean go head to head in a battle that’s anything but business as usual.
Natalie Sweet’s blue eyes went wide and her fingers twisted around the pearl necklace. “You don’t have a filing system?”
Sean O’Dell shrugged. “You’re looking at it.”
Her long fingers sailed over each round white pearl. Damn, he really wanted to know the story behind that necklace. He’d never seen her without it. The woman probably showered in it.
In half a breath, he had a fully realized vision of her soft, creamy, naked skin covered in suds. The mental image sucked all the air out of the room and turned his half chubby into a full–blown hard–on.
Natalie looked around at the paper explosion in his office. “How do you live like this?”
He kept one of the taller stacks of paper between them to block her view of the growing bulge behind his zipper. “Cleanliness is over rated.”
“You’re hilarious.” She didn’t even bother to look his way as she surveyed the damage. “Okay, if we divide the room up into equal portions, we should each be able to take a quadrant to search. Divide and conquer for the win.”
He shifted from one leg to another. Spending time in close quarters with Natalie, watching her skirt swirl around her ass, wasn’t going to help him lose this boner anytime soon. “Let me look for the reports. I’ll let you know when I find them.”
She tossed her clipboard onto his guest chair— the one spot in the whole office unencumbered by piles of paper. “We can get through this whole mess faster if we work together. I can even devise an organizational structure for the records based on your work habits.”
Excitement turned her cheeks pink as she chewed her bottom lip and bounced from foot to foot. If she ever looked at him with the same amount of giddy anticipation, he’d be in even worse trouble than he was already.
“Trust me.” She locked gazes with him, hitting him with the full force of her blue eyes. “People pay me big bucks to do that for them.”
“Any other option?” He already knew the answer to that one.
She grinned. “You could toss me over your shoulder again and throw me in the cooler.”
The idea of touching her held more appeal than it should. He took a half step forward.
Natalie jumped back, but not before he noticed her quick intake of breath and how her eyes darkened with what looked at lot like lust.
He winked, loving the fact that he’d knocked her by–the–book self off kilter. “Gotcha.”
He couldn’t wait to do it again.
Brewing up trouble one pint at a time.
