HIS MAID MEGHAN WHITE
Hearing Mr. Stephan on the second floor I hear another voice as well. His brother must be here.“Jasmine this is my brother Brandon. You are to call him Brandon since we are both, Mr. Stephan I don’t want any confusion.” He grins at me as they come into view.
The twinkle in his blue eyes tells me that he’s teasing me, but at the same time, he’s being serious.
“Yes, Mr. Stephan.” I nod my head.
“The rooms all set up?” He asks, raising his eyebrows.
“You know it is. I just got done.” I smile at him.
Brandon has the same wavy hair as Mr. Stephan and his eyes are just a little lighter. He’s a little taller, which I didn’t think was possible. He wears a suit.
“I’m a lawyer. Maybe not as rich as my brother,” He looks around, “but, I’m not poor either.” Brandon tells me.
“It’s nice to meet you. My name is Jasmine.” I introduce myself even though he’s already heard my name, I want to make sure that he doesn’t forget it.
There’s nothing worse than someone forgetting your name when they are trying to ask you something.
“Jasmine is such a pretty name.” He tells me, taking my hand and kissing the back of it.
Mr. Stephan’s smile is no longer there. I can see his ears getting red. A tell-tale sign that he’s getting upset.
I don’t see it very often unless someone doesn’t show up for a party, meeting, or the job that he has going on.
It is not until Seth’s Brother, Brandon comes for a visit, that things get tense. You see the first thing Brandon does upon meeting her is kiss her hand. Jasmine noticed Seth’s posture change, his smile was gone and his ear went red all signs of his anger. Telling Jasmine that these two man-boys like to get each other’s goat.
When Seth’s regular model can’t make it Brandon pushes challengingly for Jasmine to be his model for obvious reasons all while she is in the room. She can’t understand why so, how obvious can they be? Well, she’s about to find out...
This was a good book of how our siblings know our weaknesses and can either help us using them or not. Brandon’s were harsh and insensitive too. Yet, for the most part, help Seth move forward. But, it works out after all. Received during July-Aug. book giveaway.
