TOUCH ME LIKE YOU DO
The Morrison Files Book 1
BY A.J. MARX
Sometimes love has nothing to do with it.
Everything was fine until that sexy, brilliant, blue-eyed Adonis named Shayne Matthews walked onto the stage of the convention.
He wasn’t even supposed to be here.
But from the second he opened his mouth and that sultry voice said my name, all I’ve done is daydream about what he looks like under those fancy dress clothes.
I don’t know what’s wrong with me.
I’m not that kind of girl.
I’m a professional, I don’t get distracted—especially by men like him.
And this speaking engagement is the next step in my career—I can’t be going all gaga over this stranger even if he is hotter than sin.
There’s just something about him, something that tempts me to break all my rules.
All I have to do is say yes.
***Contains mature subject matter, sexual content, 18+ readers only.***
“You seem to be a natural people magnet.”
I peeked over my shoulder just enough to steal a quick glimpse at him as his body turned into mine so close I could feel the heat of his torso against my bared arm. He was too close—dangerously too close, my body begged to lean into his warmth. “And how exactly would you know this?”
“Because I have been watching you all night.”
He what? “You what?”
“It’s not very often that my curiosity of what people are about is intrigued.”
“And why is that?” I swallowed hard.
“Because people are predictable and boring—the ones that aren’t are dangerous.”
“Are you calling me boring?”
A low chuckle escaped him and he turned to face the masses of convention goers enjoying themselves, letting go of their inhibitions as the music played on and the drinks flowed freely.
“No, quite the opposite.”
“So now I’m dangerous?”
He huffed out a breathy laugh. “Maybe…I just find the way you see the world to be quite refreshing.”
“Oh, well that is a relief. I would hate for you feel as if your presenters didn’t live up to their standards of preached philosophies.”
“I have no doubt, Miss Morrison, that your world spins through this life on an axle you have deliberately set.”
Okay, so maybe I should cut him some slack for at least trying to seem like he is insightful. “So tell me, Mr. Matthews. Since this is not your ‘thing’, what exactly is your thing?”
Setting the empty glass onto the bar he slowly leaned into me, eyes narrowed and darkened, then whispered into my ear. “You really want to know?”
His breath was hot against my skin, lips nearly grazing mine as he slowly pulled away. I inhaled, catching his scent—so subtle and alluring in his closeness that I felt dizzy. I had no idea who this man was but my entire being just seemed to be drawn to him not to mention everything about him set my body into a fiery rage.
“Yes.” My answer slid slowly across my lips. It was all I could make myself say as butterflies in my belly fluttered below.
“Then finish your drink and I’ll show you.”
