Hey, y'all! Ashley here. This week's title comes from my swoon. These are some of my favorite moments...in a second chance romance, where one person decides to test the waters, to see if that spark is still there between them. :) And boy is it ever still there!
Happy Thursday, y'all!
KELLY: Swooning over JAMES GAMES by L.A. Rose:
He kisses me hard, pushing me up against the wall. The flyer slips off the wall and flutters to the floor, but I don't notice because I'm kissing him back, moaning into his mouth and burying my hands in his hair as his lips furiously claim mine.
ASHLEY: Swooning over JJ Knight's FIGHT FOR HER #1:
She hasn't moved. I grasp her wrists, then slide my hands up the silky sleeves of the shirt. I cross her shoulders and let my fingers trace her collarbone. Then I cup her chin.
Maddie is still looking into my face. I'm not going to let up, not as long as she's right here, her body pressed against me. I bend down and flutter a soft kiss against her lips, just to test the waters.
She relents, and the moment I feel her relax, I take no prisoners. My mouth captures her, and my hands move to the back of her head, pushing her against me.
KELSEY: Swooning over FIRE by Ashelyn Drake:
Logan leans forward, keeping his eyes locked on mine. He inches toward my face, giving me the chance to back away, but I don't want to. His hand cups my cheek and gently pulls me toward him. His lips touch mine, softly at first, and then with more intensity. I melt into him, giving in to the imprint. Giving in to the longing I can't deny. I deepen the kiss, pulling him closer to me. I'm on his lap now. I want to lose myself in him, but I can't let go or I'll start burning up again.
My feet are still in the water, and the idea hits me. I pull away just long enough to bring us both tumbling into the pool. In my mind, I know it's wrong to throw myself at Logan like this, but my mind has nothing on my heart.
TRISHA: Swooning over INTO THE FIRE by Kelly Hashway writing as Ashelyn Drake:
He inches toward me face, giving me the chance to back away, but I don't want to. His hand cups my cheek and gently pulls me toward him. His lips touch mine, softly at first, and then with more intensity. I melt in to him, giving in to the imprint. Giving in to the longing I can't deny. I deepen the kiss, pulling him closer to me. I'm on his lap now. I want to lose myself in him, but I can't let go or I'll start burning up again.
JESSICA: Swooning over LETTING GO by Molly McAdams:
(Jess note: Awww, Jagger. I am so loving him!)
(Jess note: Awww, Jagger. I am so loving him!)
"You know what I want. Tell me what you want from me. Whether it's everything or nothing, I'll always be here for you."I swallowed past the tightness in my throat and brought my hand up to cover the one he was still holding on my cheek. Slowly letting my fingers glide down his arm until I was gripping the top of his forearm, I whispered, "I want you to kiss me again."That lopsided smile crossed his face for a brief second before his lips were pressed against mine again. My hands dropped to his waist when he tilted my head back, and his tongue lightly teased my lips. My body sagged into his when I opened my mouth to him, want and need for him surging through my body as the tips of his fingers barely brushed down my neck."Grey," he whispered into my mouth, and a shiver worked through my body.
HEATHER: Swooning over LOLA AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR by Stephanie Perkins:
I kiss him like I've never kissed anyone before.
He doesn't move. His lips aren't moving.
My head jerks back in alarm. I've acted rashly, I've pushed him too quickly---
He collapses to his knees and yanks me back to his lips.
His kiss isn't even remotely innocent. There's passion, but there's also an urgency verging on panic. He pulls me close, as close as my dress and chair will allow, and he's gripping me so tightly that I feel his fingers press through the back of my stays.
NEREYDA: Swooning (TWICE!) over THE HOOKUP by Kristen Callahan:
"I want to kiss you, Anna."
My breath hitches. I'm all the way under the covers now, in a dark heated world. And there's nothing but his voice. "I think about it all the time. How soft your lips will be? What will they taste like? Will you make those sweet little noises like you do when we make love?"and:“Why won’t you let me kiss you, Anna?”
I can’t breathe.
“It’s too much,” I rasp.
“Not when I want everything.” He says it so deep and strong, a staking of a claim. “And I want everything with you, Anna.”
