Forbidden Heat (Firework Girls #1)
by J.L. White
They call us the Firework Girls.
I’m Isabella. My comfort zone consists of a bank of test tubes and a Bunsen burner. But having to take a philosophy class to graduate from college—well, that’s causing a different kind of burn altogether. I mean, the hottest professor at Hartman is looking right at me.
Can you blame me for looking back?
Forbidden Heat Excerpt:
While listening to Jack’s story, I take another sip. Over the rim of my raised glass, just down the hall, I see Shane Brooks watching me.
And he’s alone.
He doesn’t seem to know I’ve spotted him, for his eyes are traveling down the length of my body, wrapped in form-fitting velvet, and back up again. He looks hungry, and slightly stunned.
I slowly lower my glass, granting him full view of my cleavage, which he lingers on for a moment before finally, slowly, meeting my eyes.
This time neither one of us look away.
One heartbeat. Two.
I lose count as the moment lingers on.
“Ah!” Jack says suddenly, snapping me out of my trance. “Here comes our brigade.”
I glance toward the Ladies room exit to see Chloe and Ashley emerge.
Jack offers me his arm and I take it automatically, my eyes darting back to Professor Brooks, who’s still watching me.
A soft ding sounds through the hall, indicating we have only two minutes remaining of the intermission.
“Fair ladies,” Jack says, putting on a grand persona, “may I escort you back to your seats?”
“Only if I can have the rest of your champagne,” Sam says, taking Jack’s glass and downing it. He smiles easily, leading us away.
Still gripping Jack’s arm, I glance back over my shoulder.
Shane Brooks is watching my every move.
