Tori watched in fascination as a small vein pulsed at the base of his throat.
No doubt about it, he was furious.
“I’m sorry if I’ve offended you. I don’t mean to, but I just want to keep this professional between us, all right? Nothing personal,” she declared. Inside, her heart was beating wildly against her ribcage but on the outside, Tori made sure she was a block of ice.
Savage backed away. His mouth spread into a slow, knowing grin. “Well, well, well, Snow White has fangs. I’m actually impressed. There’s more to you than I thought.”
“If you want to back out of our agreement, you have that option. I’ll understand.”
“What about the money you still owe me?”
“The job wasn’t done to my satisfaction so, sorry, I’m not paying you.”
Savage burst out laughing. “You’ve got guts, lady, considering you know exactly how I collect what’s owed to me.”
Tori’s hands clenched into fists at her side as a flare of fury shot through her. “Let me make this perfectly clear, Mr. Monroe. If you harm me or my grandmother in any way, I will go to the police and have you arrested. I’m not like your disgusting biker friends. I’m not afraid of you,” she seethed.
Savage took in her angry stance and his blood boiled even more at all the nasty, insulting things she’d just said to him.
How could they go from an almost kiss to an almost kill within the blink of an eye?
And yeah, he was fuming mad at her right now but did it make him want her any less?
In fact, he wanted her even more…
