And now for today's Sunday Smooch from Louisa George's USA KISS release, Enemies With Benefits
Back cover blurb:
The last man on earth she should hook up with!
Poppy Spencer has discovered that there's one thing worse than Christmas alone in her flat, and that's spending it with Isaac Blair—her sworn-enemy-turned-reluctant-flatmate! And that's not just because he knows all her secrets…but because his sexy-as-sin smile and taut physique are making her all hot and flustered—despite the icy cold outside! Unless a casual hookup is just the thing she needs…? It'll certainly break the simmering tension between them. The trouble is, with their history, this is going to be anything but casual!
Kiss Scene:- Set up: Flatmates Poppy and Isaac are battling a growing attraction. They’ve agreed not to take it further…until a night out at the ice rink…
She skated back to him, he wobbled again, reaching for her. 'Whoa. Sorry. Legs still lost I'm afraid.'
She wobbled too, aimed to grasp his out-stretched hand but grabbed his left thigh instead. At the top. Her voice thickened. 'No. Legs very definitely here.' And something else too, very close to her fingertips. Her mouth dried and his name came out on a breath.
'Oh, God,' he gasped, his eyes fixing on hers, lowering to her mouth, back to her eyes. Something passed between them- something tacit. Suddenly her body was awash with awareness. Just to hear his unfettered need stoked the heat in her again.
The way he was looking at her made her think that the only way they’d ever get through this living together thing was if they slept together, got it over and done with and stopped pretending or waiting for it to go away, because it wasn’t going anywhere.
He lowered his mouth towards hers. Stopped a few inches away. His breathing sped up, but his eyes... God, her heart thumped hard and crazy in her chest…his eyes told her what he wanted. What he needed.
But he was conflicted too. Because he knew as well as she did that whatever happened next would draw a line under anything they'd done before. Neither was in any doubt as to what was at stake here- where this would lead.
His misted confused gaze bore down on her.
'Just do it,' she whispered. 'Forget everything else. Forget whatever it is that's stopping us having a little fun. I've been waiting so long to feel this. Just do it. I want you. You want me. Easy.'
'Hell, Poppy. You say that one more time and I won't be able to stop myself.'
She took his face in both hands- he’d rejected her twice, no way would she try third time lucky. He had to want to do it. He had to make that move. 'Just do it.'
Then his mouth covered hers in a frenzy, a hard, fast greedy kiss that instilled desire deeper, stronger, further inside her. He pushed her against the barrier, spiked her hair with his fingers. That hot misted look still in his eyes, focused on only her. Questioning. Surprised. Concerned. And yet, so very, very sexy. ‘God, Poppy, the things you make me want to do.'
‘Do it, then. Do it all.'
You can find Louisa’s book at Amazon and in book stores now!
Louisa is giving away a copy of her book to one lucky commenter! So her question to you is:
Enemies With Benefits is a romance, but it’s also about sharing our lives with other people- notably, our girlfriends. What’s the best mischief you get up to with your girlfriends??
Come back next Sunday, when the winner of today's giveaway will be announced -- and a smooch from The Rules According To Gracie by Stefanie London will be posted!
