Don’t get mad…get sexy!

Plain Jane paralegal Chastity Bryant has had a raving crush on her boss Sebastian Rossi since meeting him. Always willing to jump at his beck and call, Chastity’s world comes crashing in on her one morning when she overhears him laughing about her less than exciting life. To top it off, he freely admits that he’s used her crush to his advantage!

After a pep talk from her friends, they devise a plan to teach the arrogant Sebastian a lesson. Armed with a new look and a new attitude, Chastity sets out to seduce her hunky boss and bring him to his knees.

Sebastian Rossi has always been able to depend on two things in life: his successful law practice and his dependable employee, Chastity. But his whole world is turned upside down when she walks into his office looking like she just stepped off the cover of a magazine. Now, all he can think about is her. He doesn’t know what brought about the change, but one thing is certain, he’ll stop at nothing to possess her.

Things are going according to plan for Chastity, but the only thing she hadn’t counted on was falling in love.

Chapter One

Chastity giggled, dimples popping out. Before Sebastian realized what was going on, his lunch mates fell into a deep conversation, completely excluding him. His fury grew with each passing second. By the time the waitress took their orders, he was ready to strangle them both. He knew what Jeremy was up to, but what was up with Chastity's cold shoulder act? No woman had ever treated him like this before and it was driving him bananas. He hated being ignored, especially when it was by someone he wanted so damn much.

It was time to step the game up a notch. "Chastity," he said her name softly, but loud enough for her to hear. She turned her head, a frown marring her pretty face.

"What?"

"Did I tell you how lovely you look today?"

The expression on her face told him that his comment came as a surprise. "Thank you," she murmured, her eyes sliding away from his.

"You've looked lovely every day this week. Pink is definitely your color. You should wear it more often. I like the way it looks against your skin." Chastity squirmed in her seat. Sebastian smiled. "What's the matter, Chastity?"

She kept her lids lowered, not replying.

Jeremy answered for her. "Isn't it obvious? You're embarrassing her."

Sebastian smirked. "Is that true? Am I embarrassing you? I thought all pretty women enjoyed receiving compliments."

Dark eyes lifted, shooting daggers in his direction. "The compliments I don't mind but ..." Her voice trailed off before she tightened her lush lips.

Sebastian placed his hands on the table, leaning forward. The smell of her perfume wafted to his nostrils, tickling his senses with its flowery fragrance. "But, what, Chastity?"

"I just rather you didn't."

The blaring shrill of a cell phone ring cut through the air. It was for Jeremy. "Jeremy Owens, speaking." He listened for a moment, then covered the mouthpiece and lowered it. "Excuse me. I'm going to have to take this." Sliding out of the booth, he gave them an apologetic look.

Chastity looked like she wanted to toss something at Sebastian when they were alone. A chuckle erupted from his throat. "Alone at last, my pretty," he purred.

"Why?" came her clipped demand.

"Why what?"

"Why did you invite yourself to lunch with us? How did you know Jeremy and I didn't have something to discuss ... privately?"

He didn't like the way she'd emphasized that last word. Was she now switching her attention to his partner? Over his dead body would he allow that to happen. "Why are you willing to have lunch with Jeremy and not with me?"

"Because I like Jeremy."

She couldn't have made a more hurtful statement. Trying hard not to wince, Sebastian looked her straight in the eye, the smirk returning to his face. "Well, let's get to know each other better, and I'm sure you'll find something to like."

"I've learned all I want to know about you in the past two years and I'm not impressed." Chastity picked up her glass of diet soda, sliding the straw between crimson colored lips. His cock jumped to attention while he watched the slim white tube disappear a centimeter at a time into her mouth, before she took a sip. Her eyes locked with his as the steady stream of fluid flowed down her throat. Never in his life had he been jealous of an inanimate object. He wanted to be that straw in the worse way.

She was doing it on purpose. He was sure of it. When she lifted her head she ran her tantalizingly pink tongue over full lips. Pushing the drink away from her, Chastity sighed. "You know what?"

"What?" he croaked. His throat had gone dry.

"You're an arrogant son of a bitch. The Earth doesn't revolve around you."

"Now wait just a-"

"No. You wait a minute. Don't think I don't know what you're trying to pull."

"Just what game do you think I'm playing?"

With a slight twitch of her lips and a rise of her brow, she looked him up and down. "You want me."

Sebastian's jaw dropped. He'd originally thought Chastity had been abducted by pod people, and now he was sure of it. Pod person or not, she was absolutely right. He wanted her like crazy. "But I suppose you're going to tell me that you don't want me."

"On the contrary, I want you too."

He didn't know whether to be relieved or skeptical at that statement. "You could have fooled the hell out of me. So, why the ice princess act? You've been giving me attitude for the past two months."

She shrugged one pink-clad shoulder. "That's not important."

"I think it is. And what about Jeremy? The two of you seemed pretty chummy earlier."

"You sound jealous." Her dimples appeared when she bared small white teeth. Chastity's smile lit up her entire face. Sebastian found it enchanting even though she was driving him nuts. Why had he never noticed these little subtleties before now? "Maybe I am."

"There's no need to be. Jeremy is a nice guy, but I have a thing for tall Italian men with eyes the color of freshly grown grass."

He smiled at her detailed description. "It sounds like you've spent a lot of time thinking about my eyes."

"So?" She grinned unrepentantly, before taking another sip of her soft drink. Whatever had brought on this about-face, Sebastian had no plans to delve into the reasons why. He couldn't afford to, because his cock told him to take advantage of the moment.

"You have beautiful eyes too. Why you used to wear those horrible glasses is beyond me."

The very same eyes he'd just complimented narrowed slightly, and he knew he'd said the wrong thing, but the smile returned to her face. "Yes, they were horrible weren't they?" she agreed.

"Chastity, I'm not going to beat around the bush-"

"Then don't."

"Fair enough. I want to take you out."

Her face remained impassive. "Sounds boring."

"I beg your pardon?" Why the hell was he working so hard for this woman who displayed Sybil-like tendencies?

"There's no pardon to beg. Look, I'm going to make this easy for you. The only reason you want to take me out is to get into my pants. You'll wine and dine me, tell me the things you think I want to hear, and say how enchanting I look or how beautiful my skin is. Or something equally as corny, but when it all comes right down to it, you're hoping to get me into the sack."

"Well I-"

She held up her hand. "No explanation needed. Like I said, I'm going to make this easy for you. You want to screw me, and I'm going to let you. I don't need dinner or flowers. Just you."

Was this a wet dream? Was Chastity really sitting here in front of him saying that all she wanted was to screw? He was on the verge of answering when Jeremy chose that moment to reappear.

"Sorry about that, guys. I had a call from the office."

Son of a bitch!

Once again Mrs. Vaughn turns up the sexual heat in another of her interracial romances. 'The Reinvention of Chastity' is an enjoyable little page-turner. I just found it a little unbelievable. As much as I tried to roll with the flow of the romance, I just COULDN'T get pass the way Sebastian took advantage of Chastity's kindness. And let us not forget the AWFUL comments he made about her to his friend Jeremy. As a sistah, I would have found it difficult to get pass his comments, especially considering the snickering he did behind her back. I think I would have sought revenge and felt REAL GOOD about dishing it out! And their definitely would have been way more hoops for him to jump through before I could even think of forgiving him, let alone sleeping with him...let's just say there would have been 'HELL to pay.' I would have felt better about this little tale, if Sebastian confronted Chastity face to face about her lack of fashion sense and boring social life. However, if you can get past that little detail then this is the novel for you...it's definitely a QUICK, HOT & STEAMY read!

I enjoyed this book. The heroine actually annoyed me more than the hero. What she did, she took it so far even though she fell in love with him. She was weak still because even though she did not want to be mean to him, she just listened to what her pushy female friend would tell her (I'm just expressing how the characters made me feel, doesn't mean I don't like the book). In the end she does realizes it though
