RACHEL: Hey guys, I know I've been a little quiet lately so to compensate, I have a special treat. This week my swoon comes from a fun summer read, THE ACCIDENTAL MOVIE STAR by Emily Evans, and this book has sooo many steamy scenes to choose from that as an extra special 4th of July treat for you readers, I'm giving you TWO extended favorite segments from my favorite scene of the book:
After flinging the white satin pumps across the room, Caz turned her so that her back was to him. Gently pushing her hair over her shoulder, he undid the first pearl button. With each two undone, he placed a kiss on her back. She shivered. Midway through, she turned in his arms and grasped his shirt. She pulled the ends loose from his trousers.And then
His hands went to her back and he began blindly working on the rest of the gown's buttons. Ashley undid the buttons of his dress shirt and pulled the sides open. The more film they could get of Caz with his shirt off, the better. Caz shrugged free and stepped back to pull his undershirt over his head. She paused a moment to admire the view. Wow. His workout routine paid off.
Their mouths clung and their legs tangled. Digging her fingers into his shoulders, she pulled him closer and ran a hand down his back. Her leg lifted over his hips, and she shifted to pull him tighter. She felt him push at the hem of her gown, sliding the silk up her calf until his hand rested against her knee. She moaned against his mouth. His hand slid around to the underside of her knee and his fingers played against her skin. She gasped against his lips, and no longer heard the song in her head, the sparks drowning out the lyrics.(Y'all, I'm telling you, this book is a fun summer read *grin*)
The director said, "Okay, that's good."
Ashley's arms slid into Caz's hair and his mouth bit at her bottom lip, demanding wider. She ran a tongue against the edge of his teeth.
"Perfect, I think you got it guys." The director laughed.
TARA: Swooning over VELVETEEN by Daniel Marks:
She collapsed against him, relishing his soft kisses, the way he parted her lips gently with his tongue, his hands stroking the hollow of her spine.
KELLY: Swooning over WHITE WALLS by Lauren Hammond:
Our lips dance the tango and the kiss deepens when my mouth parts and Damien slips his tongue between my teeth. I break from the kiss, breathless and Damien traces the curve of my neck with his tongue before wrapping his lips around my earlobe.
TRISH: Swooning over SHADOW AND BONE by Leigh Bardugo:
"The problem with wanting," he whispered, his mouth trailing along my jaw until it hovered over my lips, "is that it makes us weak." And then, at last, when I thought I couldn't bear it any longer, he brought his mouth down on mine.
SO NOW IT'S YOUR TURN! On your blog (and leave us a link with Mr. Linky here or in the comments), and/or on Twitter... SWOON us! PS! Make sure to tweet with the #YABound hashtag so we can RT you!
