“Is everything about fun?”
“Yes!” Sean said, tossing up his hands. “Now you’re getting it!”
Finn turned away and eyed the spot between the couch and the desk where he’d just about dragged Pru down to the floor and ended his long dry spell by sinking into her warm, sweet body. “What’s the problem with the inventory?”
“It’s down, the whole system’s down.”
Finn snatched the iPad and swiped the screen to access the data. “And you’re just now telling me? Are you kidding me?”
“Yes,” Sean said.
Finn lifted his head and stared at Sean. “What?”
His brother flashed a grin. “Yes I’m kidding. Funning around. Fucking with your head. I came back here because Archer and Spence sent me in here to spy on you and Trouble. We bet twenty bucks. They thought you might be making a rare move.”
“Not me though,” Sean said. “I figured you’re so rusty you’d need some pointers. And here’s your first one—lock the door, man. Always.”
Finn headed toward him but Sean danced away with a grin. “Oh and pointer number two—you got your shirt off and that’s a good start, but it’s the pants that are the important part.” He was chortling, having a great ol’ time.
Finn smiled at him, shoved him out the door, and slammed it on his smug-ass face.
Then he hit the lock.
“Now you lock it?” Sean asked through the wood, rattling the handle. “Hey. You do know I nap on that couch. Tell me you didn’t do it on the couch.”
Finn turned away and headed to his desk.
Sean pounded on the door once. “You didn’t, right?”
Finn put on his earphones and cranked some music on his phone. And then headed to his desk to wade through the mountain of work waiting on him.
Pru got to work extra early the next morning. It was month end and though Jake did his best to see that his boat captains didn’t drown in paperwork, some of it was unavoidable. She wanted to catch up but she hadn’t slept well and her eyes kept crossing. Finally, she caved and set her head down on her desk.
Just for a minute, she told herself . . .
Finn pressed his body to hers and she moaned as his hands stroked up her sides, his thumbs brushing over her nipples. She arched into him and he kissed her like it was an art form, like he had nothing more important to do than arouse her and he had all the time in the world to do it. She clutched at him and he ground his lower body into her, letting her feel how aggressively hard he was. Aching for him, she tangled her hands in his hair, kissing him deeper until he groaned into her mouth. “Please,” she begged.
“Hell yeah, I’ll please.” His voice was sexy rough and she held tight, anchoring her hips against his as he slid a hand down her belly and into her panties.
He groaned again and she knew why. She was wet and on fire for him.
Breaking the kiss, he nibbled her ear. “Pru,” he said in that deliciously gruff tone. “You have to wake up.”
She jerked awake and sat straight up, realizing she’d fallen asleep at her desk doing the dreaded paperwork. “Wha . . .?” she managed.
Finn was crouched at her side, fully dressed, and breathing a little ragged.
And that’s when she realized something else—her hand was stroking what felt like a very impressive erection behind his jeans.
She snatched it back like she’d been burned and he dropped his head and gave a rough laugh. Ignoring how his laugh did funny things to her belly and parts south, she cleared her throat. “Sorry.”
“Don’t be. Best greeting ever.”
“Okay, that was your fault,” she muttered, her face heating. “That’s what you get for waking me from a deep sleep.”
“I’m not sure if you could call that sleep.” He lifted his head. He was smiling, the smug jerk. “Jake let me in, pointed me in the direction of your office, which was unlocked. You were moaning and sweaty. I moved in to see if you were okay and you molested me.”
She groaned and thunked her head to her desk a couple of times. “Why are you here?” she moaned. “Other than to rudely wake me up from the only action I’ve had in far too long?”
He laughed. Laughed. She gave some thought to killing him but then she realized he was holding a brown bag from which came the most delicious scent.
“Stopped by the waffle shop for breakfast,” he said and lifted the bag. “Thought of you.”
She went still. “Chocolate and raspberry syrup?” she asked hopefully, willing to let bygones be bygones for a sugar and carb load.
