“Mr. Graham, this is Brock Littleton. He’s agreed to be your assistant.”
Dang, sex-on-a-stick in the perfect suit was his new boss? Well, hell. Brock put all the naughty notions that had sprung to mind right out of his head. It didn’t matter that the man was so drop-dead gorgeous that he’d turn heads at a spring break Best Buns competition, hands-down. Brock was not going to have thoughts like that about his boss.
Carol stood off to the side, going through the filing drawers in the credenza that lined the wall to the left.
“It’s good to meet you, sir,” Brock said, walking to the desk with slightly heavier footsteps than normal. He waited until Mr. Graham stood and extended his hand, then took it and shook robustly. “I’ve read a great deal about what you do here, and in fact, my mom started one of your company’s subscriptions for me when I graduated high school.”
“Excellent.” Mr. Graham sat back down. “Any luck, Carol?”
“Sorry, sir,” she answered, still looking through the files. “Wait….” She pulled out a folder, brought it over, and placed it on the desk right in front of Mr. Graham. “I believe that’s it.”
“Where did you find it?” Mr. Graham asked.
Carol and Edna exchanged a glance, and then Carol left the office without answering.
“Sir, I was wondering if you have any questions for Brock before he starts.”
“Yes. Can you follow instructions and be conscientious? Don’t do tasks halfway, but the way they should be done, the first time?”
“Yes, sir,” Brock answered.
“Drop the ‘sir’ crap. I’m Martin. And I’m demanding, particular, and a pain in the ass. Right, Edna?”
Brock swore Edna’s bottom jaw was going to hit the floor at any second. “Yes.” From Martin’s smirk, there was some sort of inside joke that Brock wasn’t privy to.
“Why do you want to work for me?” Martin leaned back slightly in his chair. “I’m sure you’re overqualified if you came from the pile of applications that Edna and I went over earlier today. Why would you want to be anyone’s assistant?” He leaned forward, squinting behind big, thick glasses. “No bullshit, and don’t blow smoke up my ass.”
He was straightforward; Brock had to give him that. “I need the work. I graduated from NYU with an MBA, and no one is hiring right now. I have a crappy apartment that I hate, but it’s the only place I can afford, and I’m not going to move back home with my parents. So I’ll take this job and be the best damned assistant you ever had.”
“Until you get a better job,” Martin said, sitting back, looking at what seemed to be the ceiling or the door. Brock supposed it didn’t matter. “I can respect that.”
Well, that’s a surprise.
“Edna explained that we need someone who can start right away?”
“Yes. I’ll be here tomorrow morning,” Brock promised.
“Good. You’re hired, and we’ll see how things go. When Carol finalizes the dates for the Cartwright trip, make sure you let Brock know. I’m going to need an assistant to come with me.” Martin turned to his computer, and it began reading to him. “I have a dinner meeting on Saturday. Make sure you’re available, and there are back-to-back meetings for tomorrow. I’ll need you to take notes.” He stood and walked to the windows, his wide shoulders and narrow waist creating quite a silhouette against the bright afternoon summer sun. He was stunning in that light, and Brock let himself admire the view for a second before his brain slipped back into gear. Brock wasn’t sure what Martin was staring at, but he seemed to be looking out toward an incredible view of Manhattan. “I’ll also need you to straighten out those files. It seems my last assistant moved things around just to be disruptive.”
