27The Great Pick Up Line featuring
Insecure by Ainslie Paton

This is the heroine of Insecure. Jacinta, picking up the hero, Mace, on the first page of the first chapter.

“I. Want. You.”

She said those three loaded words in a dirty low whisper that made a shiver flicker up the back of his neck. She’d waited till Nolan was distracted and lent in quickly, uncomfortably close so her breath brushed his cheek, so he wouldn’t misunderstand.

Then she walked away. The heels, the legs, the black suit and the no-nonsense hairstyle that should’ve made her look sexless, forbidding. She was so freaking gorgeous she couldn’t hide it in all that stiff expensive tailoring. She glanced over her shoulder once to check he’d follow.

He laughed, louder than was sensible, and earned a sharp look from Nolan.

She didn’t want him for his ability to code a program or provide IT support. This was a bad idea, but the city was burning, so if the girl was on fire, he had a duty to put her out.

He followed her across the empty hotel conference room that should’ve had hundreds of happy shareholders in it, Nolan’s eyeballs stuck to his back. She made sure no one could interrupt or overhear them. She wasn’t in a socialising mood.

“Look Mason, you either want this or you don’t.” She spoke softly in that you will obey me voice, looked him dead in the eye, daring him to misinterpret.

He was hooked. He’d been snagged by her from the moment she’d stood at the front of that meeting room back at the office, explained the game plan and called him on not paying attention in front of nineteen other people. She didn’t care if she’d embarrassed him. He didn’t care enough to be embarrassed. But if he didn’t find his tongue now he’d lose his chance with her

She could have him sacked quicker than licking her lips. He could ruin her reputation with an email.

Jacinta was the CEO in waiting. Mace was the geek from IT. She had an office suite on the top floor. He worked in cubicle hell.

She had power, influence, her life mapped out. He had big dreams, and an appetite for risk.

They had one hot night written all over them.

Except the city conspired to turn that night into a weekend of unexpected passion and deep connection.

But the world can be an uncertain place even for two confident people. Will love be enough when Jacinta’s star falls and Mace’s dream takes flight, or will ambition, expectation and insecurity pull them apart?

Sounds promising! I like her attitude and how she’s so confident and the CEO, while he’s an IT worker with ambition. They sound like quite the couple. Great teaser, definitely got me curious!
