    Summary

    She can tell Rio is very much considering this new offer. She leans forward, trying to guess Rio’s response from the thoughtful look on his face. She’s surprised when his gaze flits to her momentarily. Usually she’s just a background art piece to admire once business had been conducted.

    “I’ll agree to those terms,” Rio says finally, some of the tension leaking from the atmosphere. “Under one condition.”

    Andre leans back in his chair, his shoulders slumping slightly. “What’s that?”

    “I get to spend a night with her.”

    Summary

    There came a point in every professional athlete's career when his or her body started to let them down. It might not be an injury necessarily, but age is the ultimate equalizer. No matter how talented, how skilled, how disciplined, Father Time catches up to everyone. Rio Salazar might not be there quite yet, but he feels retirement nipping at his heels. So, he has his agent/lawyer start setting up local advertisement gigs for him, and he continues to invest in new business opportunities. Rio's expectation is that he's readying himself for the next phase of his life; what he doesn't expect is to completely turn his life upside down and inside out, but that's exactly what happens when he agrees to star in a commercial for Boland Motors. Stepping onto that lot, not only does the asshole owner's wife catch his eye, but she also catches his interest. And she doesn't let go.
