Nat’s mouth opened than quickly snapped shut, her head snapping behind me, the sound of the back door slamming closed.
Maybe it was Nat’s warning or something else, but nerves jumped around my stomach, I knew my new boss was behind me, his presence crawling up my back, coating my skin in goosebumps. It was strange, but without even seeing him, I could sense him fill the room. Take over every inch.
My head whipped around, my gaze rolling over the man holding two boxes of beers, his eyes snapping to mine.
Everything stopped, the tray dropping from my finger, clattering loudly to the floor.
My lungs sucked in sharply, like I had been punched in the stomach, a strange déjà vu spinning my head, my chucks taking a step back.
Standing about six-four, brown hair, tattooed ripped arms and chest bulging his t-shirt like he lived at the gym, making him intimidating as hell. Appearing to be in his late twenties/early thirties, his full beard only defined his sculpted jaw and rugged face. Sexy didn’t even describe him, but the icy-hot sensation burning my body in polar ways, screamed fear and familiarity.
He stopped dead in his tracks, his jaw locked down, his face stayed expressionless, but his lids lowered, his nose flaring. A muscle along his neck twitched, displaying a tattoo on the side of his neck. Brown eyes bore into mine.
I blinked taking in the color.
Brown. Not blue.
