Happy Hump Day!
I have another Mid Week Tease from Sicario, World's End Book 2.
This is the scene where Lexan meets Enzo for the first time. There's a contract on Enzo's head and Lexan is the assassin sent to kill him. Enjoy ❤
Steady footsteps echoed in the hallway behind me. The hairs on the back of my neck stood erect. Usually I didn’t sit with my back to the door. It proved how relaxed I was in Gianna’s presence that I would allow my guard to slip.
While she was harmless, this new arrival was an unknown. My first instinct was to reach for my gun but as I pulled my hand to my chest, I remembered I’d come in here unarmed. Twisting in the seat, I saw the person stride into the kitchen.
A tall man in brown boots and washed jeans, the muscles of his broad shoulders and chest filled out the light blue chambray shirt. He had black hair cut short, but curling a little around his ears, eyes as black as the night, full lips and about a day’s growth of dark bristle on his chin. His gaze stayed on me, studying me.
I recognized him from the photos in the dossier. Enzo Mattia. Owner of El Rancho de Rio de la Plata.
The space in the kitchen suddenly seemed constricted and the air seemed to be sucked out.
“Gia, I didn’t know you had a guest,” he said in a deep voice that commanded attention and sent a sizzle down my spine to my balls.
I stood from the chair, suddenly not wanting him standing over me. I wasn’t afraid of him. But the way he looked at me was as if he could see beyond what I projected.
She waved her hand in my direction as she stood too. “Enzo, this is Alex. He’s here for the ranch hand job.”
“Nice to meet you, Alex, but have you worked in a ranch before?” He looked me over, assessing me as if he didn’t believe I was suitable for the job. His direct approach matched his sister’s.
Back ramrod straight, I held my breath, wondering if I passed the examination. Wanting to pass it for more than one reason. I didn’t want to leave. Not now. Not until I’d found out more about this man.
“No,” I replied. “As I said to your sister, I can do whatever job you want me to do. I’m handy with woodwork and I don’t mind getting my hands dirty.”
He put his hands on his hips, exuding confidence and power. “Ranch work is back breaking and has to be done no matter the weather outside. Are you sure you can cope with it?”
I wasn’t a big man, not even that muscular. But I was fit. Anyone who mistook my appearance for weakness did so at their peril.
I stepped forward, extending my hand and met his gaze. “Why don’t you give me a trial, and if you’re not satisfied, you don’t have to hire me.”
He nodded and stepped forward. “I’ll give you twenty-four hours to prove yourself, Alex.”
That was more than enough time to learn what I needed to do my job.
“Deal,” I said as we shook hands.
An electric shock spiked up my arm. His onyx eyes widened. Something unspoken passed between us.
As we stood connected, I should have been assessing all the ways I could take his life.
Instead, my cock hardened as I pictured him on top of me, stretching my hole as he filled me up, our sweat-slicked bodies sliding over each other in sync.
