Fat Louise Release Day (Excerpt+Giveaway)

She saw Teresa sitting at a table with Cade. He was wearing a black T-shirt, and his wet hair made it look as if he had just taken a shower. Every so often, Teresa would get up to refill his drink or get him food. Jane tried not to watch them as she worked; however, Cade was hard not to notice. She wanted to smack herself for staring at them.

Bringing herself back to earth, she started focusing on Jorge. He seemed tired today, moving slowly behind the bar as he helped wait on customers.

Seeing his keys were on the shelf next to the glasses, she took several glasses and placed them carefully on the shelf. She glanced around quickly to make sure no one was paying attention to her, and then she slid the keys into her pocket.

“Jorge, I’m not feeling well. I need to go to the restroom.” Jane told him as he moved from one customer to the next.

He studied her face for a second before nodding. “Hurry the fuck up. We’re busy.”

Jane guessed fear of getting caught taking his keys had made her face pale, adding credibility to her claim.

“I’ll try.” Jane tried to give a make-believe sick look before disappearing around the corner where his office was. The bathroom was directly in front of it, and the room that Cade was renting was next to it.

Jane hurriedly slipped the key in the door after checking to make sure no one else was near. Slipping inside, she closed and locked the door in relief. She stared around the office in dismay. It was filled with papers and boxes. She would never be able to find anything in here before Jorge noticed she had been gone for too long.

Taking a deep breath to calm herself, she began her search, making sure to place things back exactly as they were so Jorge wouldn’t know she had searched his things. Time flew and Jane was about to give up when she noticed a ledger lying on top of a box that was closest to his desk. Opening it, she saw several names with money amounts and addresses.

Jane ran her finger down the column, almost shouting when she saw the last name Silva. Jane memorized the address then closed the ledger.

Barely opening the door, she peeked outside, and seeing no one, she slipped back out into the hallway. She was about to close the door when she found herself jerked away as a hand reached out and snapped the door closed.

Jane stared up into Cade’s face as she was backed against the now closed door with Cade plastered against her.

“What?” Before she could say anything else, his mouth slammed down on hers.
