A Kinky Office Holiday Romance in Suz deMello’s Kinky Toes

I’ve always prided myself on writing stories with an unusual twist—or two or three. Kinky Toes is one of those stories. Instead of the usual blah romance about seductive secret Santas or drunken sex under the mistletoe at a boring office party, Kinky Toes is a hot romance between two sex addicts who happen to work for the same firm.

Shelbie and Rick meet at a Sexaholics Anonymous meeting and discover they work for the same company. Thrown together by her father, the C.O.O., they’re ordered to get along or move along.

Rick had texted her the address of the restaurant where he wanted to meet, and Shelbie got to the place on time, only to find that it was a chophouse. When she arrived, he was already sitting at the bar, drinking a beer and eating some kind of roasted meat appetizer. A flat screen T.V. mounted above was tuned to pro football. The sound was muted, allowing taped Christmas carols to foul her ears. All is calm, all is bright…huh. As if.

“Sit down, babe,” he said, waving a skewer of beef. “The steak tapas here are great. Want a Bud?”

She stared at him. His shirt collar was open and his tie askew. His sleeves were rolled up to the elbow, showing off brawny arms sprinkled with masculine dark hair. His suit jacket was slung casually over a nearby barstool.

She had dressed for their dinner in a jacketed green silk sheath accessorized with gold jewelry, purse and shoes. He had come straight from work and was a wrinkled mess.

Obviously she’d attached more importance to this event than he had. “I’m a vegetarian and I drink Champagne.”

“Shit, sorry.” He waved a hand at the bartender and rubbed his fingers together, the universal signal for the check. He turned to her. “So where d’ya wanna go?”

What truly annoyed her was that he was so effortlessly alluring. His five-o’clock stubble was seductive, not slovenly. He smelled like sex, not sweat.

His gaze shifted down to her feet, then up to the screen. A huge guy in a striped orange and black helmet crashed into an even bigger guy wearing white. Rick jumped up and swore.

“You’re kidding,” Shelbie said with disbelief. She turned on her heel and left.
