Girl pulls a man in a tie

Eileen Sangazure has a plan to add a little spice to her romance with Alex Poindextre. He’s her fiance, after all, and she’s going to remind him of that. And how!

[Eileen] used her shoulders to push herself away from the door and glided toward him as if she were a model strutting down the catwalk. Alex was still talking into the phone and making notes on a legal pad. Maybe she should have worn higher heels. Something sexy, seductive— something to make him sit up and notice her, instead of the admin assistants he was so protective of. She unbuttoned the top button of her blouse and leaned over Alex’s desk, both hands planted on his leather-edged blotter.

“Great. That’s great. Two-thirty. See you then. And—”

Eileen took the receiver and set it down in the cradle. “Time for lunch, big boy.”

“Hey! I wasn’t done—” Alex said. His voice trailed off as he got a look down the front of her blouse. “Eileen. Your shirt is unbuttoned.”

“Just for you, sweetie. Now come on.” She gathered his red silk tie in one hand and pulled him to his feet. His eyes were riveted on her cleavage. So far, so good.

“Button yourself up,” he growled. He reached for her blouse, but she ducked away from his fingers.

“Ah, ah, ah. You’ll get your turn soon enough.”

Still, she buttoned the blouse herself before they reached the hall. Sex had its place, but not in the office. She tucked her hand in his arm and led Alex triumphantly out of the office and down the block to her favorite hotel.
