“Don’t call me boss. It makes me sound like some gangster” #MidWeekTease
Happy Hump Day!
We're continuing with another Mid Week Tease from Sicario, World's End Book 2.
This follows on from last week's tease when Lexan meets Enzo for the first time. Enzo gets a little ribbing from Lexan for being bossy. Enjoy ❤
For a moment, I stood stunned by the tingle that travelled up my arm when I shook hands with Alex. What the hell was that? He had a firm grip that I hadn’t expected from someone who appeared so refined at first glance.
Standing this close to him, our eyes were at the same level, which surprised me too, considering how lean he was. The direct way he stared at me would have made any other man shift uncomfortably. As it was, heat rose through me.
Fighting not to show any outward sign of being ruffled, I withdrew my hand from his. There was something about him that I couldn’t put my finger on. The whole tingly sensation had to be a fluke. It didn’t mean anything.
There was the fact that he just didn’t seem the country sort.
Yes, he looked the part, if one of those hoity-toity fashion magazines had done a photo shoot of what a ranch hand would look like. He was just too impeccable. There wasn’t even a scuff on his shiny boots.
Still, in his amber eyes I saw steely determination. He was willing to prove me wrong.
“Your trial can start immediately. One of the fences is broken and some of the cattle got out. The other men are busy, so we’re going to round them up and mend the fence.”
I didn’t wait for his response and headed to the door.
“Yes, boss,” Alex replied.
I detected a hint of sarcasm in his voice and turned around with my eyebrow raised. “What was that?”
“Just acknowledging your instructions.” He looked at me innocently as if he hadn’t done anything wrong.
A frown marred my face. “Don’t call me boss. It makes me sound like some gangster.”
Across the room, Gia broke into giggles. “Oh, you’re so paranoid. Anyway, you’re kind of bossy. Would you rather he addressed you as ‘Sir’?”
“Of course not.” One look in Alex’s direction and it looked like he was suppressing laughter.
When did this stranger become co-conspirator with my sister?
