Drawn Through You
Drawn Through You Synopsis:
What if the brooding billionaire wore pencil skirts and Louboutins? What if the impressionable intern was a small-town furniture maker with boyish charm?
Cole Jacobson always thought he would take after his father and pursue his dreams. But when the family business falters and he’s forced to accept his uncle’s help, Cole is summoned to the big city for a job he never wanted.
Priorities become obscured when Cole finds himself working for Shaun Wright, the strong, intimidating, and ruthlessly attractive business partner at his uncle’s contracting firm. Forced to either sacrifice his hard-won integrity or leave behind the one thing that brings him true happiness, Cole must make a decision that could cost him both. A decision only complicated by the sexy, inscrutable woman he can’t stop thinking about. A woman who just might be as intrigued as he is to cross professional boundaries.
A provocative, trope-twisting romance, Sarina Rhoads’s Drawn Through You finally puts the heroine on the other side of the desk.
Bumping into the reception desk as he moved deeper into the open office space, Cole heard a derisive snort, and his head shot forward. A young man with auburn hair slicked into an impossible mound on the top of his head and a face full of freckles sat behind a cockpit-style desk, leering in his direction.
“Are you in need of assistance? An ice pack? Or a cold shower, perhaps?”
“Funny,” Cole muttered, shoving his papers back into his notebook. “I’m here to see Mr. Wright.”
“Mr. Wright?” The receptionist stared at him, puzzled. “There’s no–,” he started, but Ms. Hot and Cryptic promptly appeared next to him to interject.
“Mr. Wright?” she echoed.
“Uh, yeah,” Cole replied, taken off guard by her sudden interest.
“Actually, I’m going that way. I’ll escort him, Henry.” She winked at the receptionist, ramping up Cole’s curiosity. “I’m sure Mr. Wright is expecting him,” she added with a little too much humor in her voice. She spun around and started walking.
After a moment’s pause and a quick glance at the receptionist, who still wore an expression of complete confusion, Cole followed close behind, struggling to keep his gaze above the woman’s swaying backside.
“Are you Mr. Wright’s assistant?” he asked, deciding he’d better collect as much information about her as he could in the short amount of time it would take to get wherever they were going. If she was his assistant, Mr. Wright was one lucky bastard. Corporate eye-candy of her caliber must not come cheap, and if he was anything like Cole’s uncle, office affairs were a management perk.
“Something like that,” she answered over her shoulder, but didn’t make eye contact.
“Cole?” Cole wheeled at the sound of his uncle’s voice, hackles creeping up to join the un-welcoming committee. The younger, arguably more successful brother of his late father stepped through a doorway, wearing the air of conceit he almost never went without and a navy suit that probably cost as much as two months’ rent on Cole’s place in Mason.
“Uncle Rob.” He forced a smile and shook his uncle’s offered hand, palms smooth and soft against Cole’s calloused and rough.
“Please, call me Robert here.” Robert gave him an arrogant smile, wiping his released paw against the fine fabric of his jacket. “I see you met Shaun just fine.”
Confused, Cole turned, looking for the man whom he had overheard his uncle discuss with his mom on the few occasions he’d gone slumming in Sweetwater. “Huh?”
“My business partner, Ms. Shaun Wright.”
Cole realized Robert was directing his attention to the woman, who was now watching them with her arms folded across her midsection, a mischievous grin on her face.
“Ms. Wright,” she corrected, smile widening.
