Enzo Rodriguez doesn’t take much seriously–unless it involves waves, boards, or good beer. When too-hot-to-handle Jessica Mills strolls into his life, Enzo is willing to forego all of those things for every second he can spend with her. But Jessica has a huge secret–and when it’s revealed, it not only crushes Enzo, but has the last person he wants to ask a favor of–his brother-in-law Adam–bailing him out of jail. Enzo is convinced that the only way to mend his bruised ego and heart, is to pack his bags and leave the turbulent waters of Silver Strand…for good.
I pull her into my arms and, now that we’re done talking, we keep ourselves busy with other things. Like stripping each other naked.
“What if I get another customer?” Jess asks, her breath skipping and her words stuttering. “What if someone comes to the door?”
“Want me to lock up?” I offer.
“You’re naked, Enzo,” she giggles, gazing down at my body appreciatively. I’m glad I’ve been able to work less and surf more lately, even if she did call me a bum for it. “The entire front of the store is plate glass.”
“I have zero body issues.” I hold my arms out at my sides. “Give me the keys.”
She chews on that lower lip. “I don’t think anyone is coming. Don’t worry about it.”
“Ah. You’re afraid other ladies might get a glimpse? Storm the place?” I nod. “Want to keep me trapped back here in your…love bakery?”
Her laugh rings out. “You’re ridiculous. But, since you’re in my bakery, I should probably do a little work on you.”
“A little work?” I watch her saunter to the fridge and rifle around.
