Snap, crackle, it love at first sight or maybe not quite? BOUND with Lucy Pireel #Sep #Asmsg #romance

Mmm...first encounters. I love it when characters in both movies and novels meet for the first time. It sets the tone for what's to come. Sometimes there's snap, crackle, sizzle...or maybe there's that slow burn of borderline contempt that you just know is gonna be fun to watch. 
Today we're getting a glimpse of Lucy Pireel's looks juicy. 


The first meeting

Amelia sat behind her desk, smiling at the approaching man. Raphael Gleave, today's most eligible bachelor and singer of the hottest band she’d ever seen, had just walked into her office. The man looked even better in real life than in the tabloids. Muscular, tall and a gait that showed agility and strength. Looking him up and down, her gaze lingered on his crotch. Hmm, a nice package too. She batted her lashes and said, “How can I help you, Mister Gleave?” Anna would not believe who was at her desk today. Girlfriend, you’re going to eat your heart out. She kept a straight face, but grinned on the inside.

He lowered himself into the chair on the other side of her desk and leaned back, taking a relaxed position, legs wide and arms on the rests. His lips curled up into a half-smile, showing a cute dimple on his cheek. His blue eyes sparkled when he looked at her nameplate. “Miss Wild,” he drawled. “I need to hire temporary help. The kind that knows what to expect.”

“Do you have preferences, Mister Gleave?” She knew hers. Wouldn’t it be great if he shared them? “Any special wishes we should take into account?”

He chuckled. “She should be athletic. Not too tall, well groomed ...” At that, he watched Amelia as if waiting for her to speak. When she kept quiet, he pursed his lips. “Right,” he said. “By well groomed, I mean presentable under all circumstances. Even when she needs to keep up with me while I’m running.”

“Do you prefer blonds or brunettes?” Not a question she’d normally ask a client who came in looking for a high-end secretary or PA. In this case though? She wanted to know.

“Brunettes.” He stared at her expectantly. “A bit like you. Not that it really matters though,” he hastened to add.

“I’m staff, not personnel.” But I’d make an exception for you. “I guess we could probably work something out, depending on your wishes.”

Hmm...I wonder what's gonna happen next?
