Excerpt from Hooked

“Glorious day, isn’t it?”
“It is.” Now that Jim sat beside her, he noted the tight leather and tall heels. Weren’t those the kind called “fuck me” shoes?
Jim considered the direct approach, but then shied away from it when a uniformed patrol officer strolled by on the sidewalk outside the small fence that separated the café from the passing traffic. Narrowing his eyes, he considered whether she might be setting him up.
“So tell me, Tania. What’s a nice girl like you doing in a place like this?” He smiled after delivering the corny line and Tania laughed. It was a pleasant sound, he decided. And he liked the way her eyes crinkled at the corners when she found something funny.
“Just resting my feet. Shade and a seat are very welcome after an exhausting morning of shopping.” With an exaggerated motion toward her packages and an over-acted sigh, she met his levity, then raised the stakes. “And what’s a handsome man like you doing in a neighborhood like this?”
Tania leaned forward on the table, resting her chin in her hand and giving him a full view of her cleavage.
Jim’s eyes fell toward her breasts before he glanced up at her again. No blush painted her cheeks, only a coy smile and an invitation in her eyes. For a moment he was discomfited. While woman often flirted with him, they were never quite so transparent. And Jim’s tastes in sexual activity weren’t every woman’s cup of tea. Was she truly up to what he thought she was up to?
