Unable to get her voice to work, she stared back at him, her eyes drawn to the cleft in his chin. “No,” she finally managed, and then noticing his heart-shaped lips, added, “Yes.”
Antonio cocked an eyebrow.
“You’re...con...confusing me,” she stammered, her skin hot under his sultry gaze.
With a smile on his lips he stepped away from her. She stared at him wide-eyed. ‘I’ve never seen this side of him before,’ she decided, watching him return to his chair and drinking his coffee as if nothing had happened.
