Expecting to be fired, Carie receives a promotion and raise, is it cruel joke?
Her friend Mary's boyfriend has just received yet another raise and they haven't even received one yet ever. The company Halloween Masquerade Ball is coming up. Carie and Mary are discussing the raise and Mary complains. Company rules state no employee can make derogatory comments about the bosses. Discovering the conversation was overhead, they expect to be fired but who knows what the future holds?
Instead, Carie receives word that she has been promoted plus she can choose her replacement. Is it a cruel hoax? Still expecting to be fired after the Halloween Ball Carie drinks a little too much and gets a little too wild at the company party with a stranger.
Will the stranger be her downfall or her salvation?
He opened Larry Simm's office door as Carie Clark and another woman walked past. Pausing in the doorway, he listened to the musical tone of her voice. His eyes focused on the come-hither sway of her hips and the way the material of her dress cupped beneath the rounded curves, hinting at the crease between her thighs.
His member twitched and lengthened. His aroused attention focused on her ankles and slid up the curved of her calves, the skirt swallowed her thighs and he wanted to push up the material and continue the exploration. The need to explore every inch of her body was urging him to follow her.
Clenching his hands into fists, he locked his knees. The head in his pants waving for attention, his eyes moved over her waist and skimmed up the slick line of her back to the silken tresses she was threatening to cut. Hoping he would get the chance to run his hands through it, he silently willed her to forget about cutting it. Her face in profile, she was concentrating on her friend and their hushed conversation.
Hearing that the employees were not allowed to comment on the actions of their superiors gained the business side of his attention. Now that was a bit of information that he had never heard from the executives. What were they trying to hide? How long had the rule been in force? Was it a new rule since they decided to sell, or was it a long-term policy of the company? These were questions that he intended to discover the answers too.
As she turned to enter the lift, his gaze slid across her features, lingering on her kissable lip, sliding down to the full line of her breasts. Licking his lips, he stepped back and closed the office door.
