In this snippet, Clio is meeting Jax, a new history professor at the Delphi City University for the first time.
His smile carved dimples into his cheeks like an ancient sculptor etched lines into a block of marble. Pleasure fluttered to life in her belly. He was flirting. Her finger twitched with the need to trace the lines around his mouth.
“I’m here during normal business hours.”
Jax leaned over the counter and lowered his voice. “What if I need a research assistant? You know your history. Are you available after hours?”
Did that seem like he’d asked her on a date? Or was it just wishful thinking? She tipped her head to the side, like she’d be able to see into his head from this angle. “I’m always happy to help.”
He flicked his rich brown eyes to her lips, then back up. “I’ll remember that.”
He straightened and dragged the strap of his bag back up his shoulder. Once it was situated, he pocketed his ID. The motion caused his damp shirt to stretch against his broad chest. He folded the guide sheet she’d given him into thirds, then thirds again and slipped it into back pocket of his jeans. He sauntered away from her with one last grinning glance over his shoulder. God, his smile was killer.
