Georgie – Follow That Dress Book 2

 

Georgie

Georgie Randall runs from town to town to escape her past. When she settles in Amityville, Long Island, she vows to be happy alone. But when the boss’ handsome son throws her kinky switch on, there’s no turning it back off.

 

Excerpt:

Mr. Calvert raised one eyebrow. “Hello there. Georgie, is it?” He held out his hand to her in greeting.

“Yes. Georgina, but everyone calls me Georgie.”

“Uh huh.” His insipid style matched his boorish behavior.

Adam excused himself to the men’s room, leaving her alone with him. Feeling repelled by his presence, Georgie shook it off and offered a fake smile while struggling to make conversation.

“So, Mr. Calvert, how do you like Tampa? Have you visited anything in particular?” She winced when he turned and took her hand in his. He kissed her palm. It was a wet, sloppy, and somewhat vulgar gesture. She pulled her hand away and discreetly wiped it on her sweater. He ignored her question and asked one of his own.

“What do you do, Georgie?”

“I’m a paralegal for Tate and Bloom.”

His leer was quite obvious, making her uncomfortable.

“Very nice,” he growled.

Georgie glanced down, making sure her sweater was closed, and sat on a recently vacated barstool. She was served her usual Diet Coke with a lemon slice, fingering the glass with nervous energy and smirking at Calvert while she searched for Adam through the crowd. Sipping her drink like a medicinal drug to treat the ill-at-ease feeling in her stomach, she tried hard to ignore the lecherous stare from which she shied away.

When Adam returned, he placed his hand on her back and gently rubbed in a circular motion. This was his signature be-supportive request.

“Shall we get a table?” he asked. All her focus would be centered on Adam as she settled in for what looked to be a very long night.

Hours later, Georgie tried hard not to be completely repulsed by the drunken behavior of Joseph Calvert. His leering, when Adam’s attention was diverted, was causing her major anxiety and pulling her back into a past she wanted to forget. The situation was all too familiar. But Georgie reminded herself that she wasn’t drinking, and even if she was, Adam loved her.

Joseph Calvert, with a slight slur, announced he would buy one last drink and call it a night. A feeling of relief swept over her, but the prickly bumps on her skin reminded her she wasn’t out of the bar and away from Calvert just yet. Adam offered to retrieve the drinks from the bar, leaving her alone with Calvert. He leaned over and grabbed her hand again.

“Where did you say you went to college?”
