"Is that how you greet your boss? Or your old flame?"
Fire smoldered in Troy's eyes as mischief danced in his voice. Knowing Sierra was way ahead, she sighed. "What do you want? More memos copied? Someone to pour you a coffee?" she said with saccharine sweetness, vowing to return to college and upgrade her career.
"I stop by periodically to make sure everything's okay. This is my last stop of the day." He didn't move to leave. "Everything okay here?"
Was he daring her to make him leave? She scowled. "Only if you call having a crazed sister okay. Or having my boss intrude on my personal space."
He didn't blink, just advanced a step. "Is being around me really that bad? You didn't used to think so."
Before she realized his intentions, Troy backed her against the wall and crushed close. He captured her lips in a searing kiss that left her weak-kneed and breathless. Soft hands cupped her face, stilling her head. His hips pinned her to the wall so she couldn't do more than squirm against his solid frame.
How long they kissed in the hall, she didn't know. She was powerless to break the kiss--as if she'd been starved for it for years. Shirt balled in her hands, she molded her body to his.
He drew back a short distance. "You can kiss me like that and still say you hate me?"
