Welcome to Mid Week Tease!
Authors: this is a great opportunity to spotlight a few lines or even a paragraph or two from a new release or backlisted title. Readers: you get to sample some delicious snippets! We’ll do our best to tease, titillate and tantalize you into the weekend.
My mid week tease is from Sin’s Flower (A Sin Pointe Novel, #2). Here’s what “talking” is like with sexy rock star Jaxon James.
He leaned in to her back until his nose brushed up against her sweet neck, nuzzling little circles in her fine baby hairs. Tiny goose bumps rose across her skin so he breathed his warm breath in an effort to chase away the chill. She squirmed, sending his muscles into tight spasms. God, this was so wrong but he needed it so bad. Fucking bananas karma.
“Oh, I, uh, so you met Tris when she was sixteen. How old were you?”
“I was twenty-six,” he said, dropping into her neck a fraction more with each word.
“And you never wanted to kiss her?”
He should pull back from her, at least an inch or two, to answer but he was so close to finding the exact right spot. “No, I can honestly say I didn’t.” He waited to plant his lips in the sweet spot since tickling her with his nose seemed to be so pleasing. He should not be doing this. The craziest part was that he knew it. But just like during the talk they’d had in his room, he couldn’t seal himself off from her right now and she wasn’t saying no.
“Well knowing my sister, I bet there were times when she wanted to kiss you.”
“There may have been a couple times but she quickly got over it.” Even he could hear the haste in which he’d delivered that one. To keep the slow rhythm he refused to lose with her, he slowed to a pause and then answered. Hell, maybe he was just trying to scare her straight. This is the real me, I will take you and you will regret it. Here’s a little taste.
“You know I never wanted to kiss your sister, but you on the other hand. I’m not gonna lie, I could definitely kiss you. I won’t, of course.”
He paused again to consider the green light she’d just given him with that hopeful lilt tagging the end of her response.
“You have a great accent,” he said. As much as he’d love to keep her talking just so he could hear her southern quirky drawl, it was time to start winding down.
“So do you,” she said.
“I really like your voice, Lily.” He was about to say But I can’t lick and talk at the same time so let’s shush now and we’ll get to that talk later, when she made a tiny movement that pressed her neck into his lips. Their little word play was helping her relax so he held off on asking for her silence.
“I like yours too.”
“I like your mouth,” he said.
“I like your…lips.”
“Lily, I changed my mind. I am going to kiss you.”
“Jaxon, what are we doing?”
“Talking.” He blew another breath into his favorite little place on earth right now.
