Mid Week Tease -Not So Fast- a snippet from Desire Unexpected

click to see all the Mid Week Teases here at SJsWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the fabulous, Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

I got my cover. It’s so pretty! Jay Aheer did an amazing job. Desire Unexpected, Assassins and Sweethearts book 1 is almost here! I’m working my way through edits and hope to turn them in soon. 😀 Last week I shared the first snippet. Nadia got a bit nervous when her boss sat beside her at the Art Institute. This Week I may have skipped the rest of their first conversation, but it doesn’t take Ethan long to find her again. Enjoy!


On her way to the exit, the empty corridor revealed two sets of footsteps. Her imagination took off with the idea Ethan was once again following her. Pathetic. She’d never get that lucky twice in one day.

Her heart picked up its pace anyway with the assistance of her usual three cups of morning coffee. She resisted the urge to turn around, ignored the urge to visit the museum shop, and instead walked out of the Art Institute.

After gulping several large breaths of brisk Chicago air, she made her way to her favorite food truck. The best grilled cheese sandwich in the city was calling her name and not the man she couldn’t help but hope was following her.

When she stepped into line, a tick of disappointment weighed on her spirits when she turned and didn’t find him behind her.

“What’s good here?”

She turned back to find Ethan standing next to her, intently checking out the menu. “Gah!” She stumbled back a step. “You’ve got to stop doing that.”

“Doing what?”

“You’re like a ghost.” She shook her head. “I think you’re gone and then you pop up.”

“I simply slipped into your blind spot which I must say was easy to do.” He turned to face her. His gaze fixed on hers. “You should be more aware of your surroundings. You also need to walk a lot faster if you want to lose me which I should have suggested. It looks like rain.”

“I didn’t know you were following me.” She lost herself in his hazel eyes. As the light changed around them, it highlighted several different flecks of color, each were similar, but different. She wouldn’t mind staring into them all day long. “Why are you following me?” A drop of rain hit her cheek.

“When one of my employees asks a couple of questions about me, I blow it off as curiosity.” He took a step closer. “When those questions get increasingly more personal, I tend to take an interest, Nadia.”

“You know who I am?” Her pulse fluttered. Oh God, he knows what I asked.

He brushed away the droplet of rain with his thumb.

Warmth flushed along her body, leaving a tingle in her toes.

“You work for me. Of course I know who you are.” He gestured her to move forward in the line. “Why are you so interested in my personal life?”

“I like to know who I’m working for.” She looked to the ground as she stepped forward in line.

“Do you think I should take the same interest in your personal life?”

“I guess I deserved that.” She took a tighter grip on her purse. “I’m sorry for invading your privacy. I’ll stop with the questions.”

“I wouldn’t want you to give up so easily.”

Desire Unexpected by S.J. MayleeBlurb:

Life is passing Nadia Duskin by from her position in the mailroom. It only fulfills two necessities, keeping the repo man away and keeping her up to date on her sexy CEO. Ethan Wright is prepared to frighten and fire the nosey girl who sorts his company’s mail. After engaging with her at one of his favorite places in the world, he digs deeper.

Together, they find the kind of pleasure that could keep them satisfied for a lifetime. Her love may be the key to putting both of their lives back on track, but to what end? When a man he’s been contracted to kill threatens Nadia’s life, he forces her to face reality. Either they’ll delve deeper into the desires neither expected or they may die trying.

Be Warned: spanking, light BDSM, public exhibition
