The set-up: Jacqui Bishop has been sent to Team Building Camp to learn how to lead a team. Once she completes the course, she's been promised a promotion within the company she works for. And she's about to meet her new teammate for the week-long course.
Jules slid a form across the desk and handed her a pen. “This is the registration form. Sign there, at the bottom.”
She scrawled her signature atop the bold black line. Straightening, she looked at Jules as she nudged the paper back to the other woman. “Now what?”
“Now I give you the itinerary for the week.” Jules’s lips turned down as she studied the forms in her hand. “Typically, a company sends several attendees to the program, but it looks like you’ll be the only one here from MedServices.”
“Is that a problem?”
Jules leaned her weight onto one leg, her hip jutting out. “Not really. We have another singleton, so we’ll pair the two of you. He’s from Medford, too. Luca Rossi. From St. Simeon Medical Center. Do you know him?”
“In fact, I do. I’ve met him socially a few times.”
Actually, her best friend Bella Robins worked in Human Resources at the hospital worked with him. She’d been enamored with the chief operating officer for the medical center since he’d joined them six months ago. She claimed he could eat crackers in her bed anytime. Too bad about Bella’s pesky live-in boyfriend.
A smile tugged Jac’s lips. But he was delicious, as Jac had seen when she’d accepted Bella’s invitation to a happy hour gathering of her co-workers. Jac had been instantly attracted to the man, but so had at least a half-dozen other women present. Luke had bought her a drink, but another woman had dragged him away before they were able to get better acquainted.
