Belated Just Kiss Already Blogfest

Eek! I was supposed to post this Monday but.... as we can all tell that didn't happen. So, here is my 2-day late blogfest post! Figured it's better to have it late than never. It just feels wrong signing up for something and not ever doing it. So, yeah. Hope you all enjoy it. If you haven't already, be sure to check out the other posts.

This is from the old plot. 

        I stepped up behind Emelie as she slid the key from her skirt pockets. The vanilla and cherry scent of her hair tickled my nose. I couldn’t get enough of it. She jammed the key into the knob, twisting it roughly. “Are you sure this is the right key? It won’t budge.”
        “Here,” I said, leaning into her body for a blissful moment. I wrapped my hand around hers and shoved the key in further with a rough twist of my wrist. The door eased open with a creak.
        Emelie turned, eyes looking deep into mine. There was just enough light to see splashes of green within the blue. My heart rammed into my chest, aching. Heat curled in the pit of my stomach, my hands going sweaty. I wanted her so much. She licked her lips and swallowed. “Thanks.” Her voice was quiet and satiny.
        “You’re welcome.” I licked my lips and leaned in. Why did she have to be so beautiful?
         She pressed into me as her eyes flicked down to my mouth. I stopped breathing. She wanted me, too. “We… should head in.”
        “Yeah,” I breathed. Gods, I couldn’t hold it in. I closed the distance and swept my lips across hers. Her chest hitched with a gasp, but her lips molded against mine, her body melting into my hold. I tingled, relishing in the heat of her body, the feel of her lips—her hands, everything.  My fingers inched under her shirt as our tongues slid against each other, her skin smooth as lily petals.
         “Axel.” She pulled away breath heavy, her lips a strawberry red. “I—Lukas.” Her brows scrunched together.
        My body went cold. “Right… sorry.” I swallowed, moved away and shook my head. “I shouldn’t have. It won’t happen again.”
        She nodded and straightened out her clothing. “No, it won’t.” Emelie disappeared into the room.
        Stupid fucking Lukas.

On another note, the crusades are taking off like crazy. Eek. Looks like my self-imposed internet ban (was supposed to keep distractions away so I could plot faster.... which hasn't happened) is now over. I've got a lot of stuff to read now! And to my crusading group, hello! 

How's everyone been? Busy? Bored? Going crazy? Needing to go out and get crazy?  I wanna hear. :)


  1. “Here,” I said, leaning into her body for a blissful moment. I wrapped my hand around hers and shoved the key in further with a rough twist of my wrist. The door eased open with a creak."

    This is such a double entendre.

  2. Michael - I hadn't even noticed when I wrote/read it over, hahaha. Thanks for pointing it out!

  3. Nice romantic suspense! You put so much tension in just a few paragraphs. ☺
    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I know that was a pretty gross post so thanks for braving it! Lol!

  4. I can't remember if I read this or not, which is kind of sad on my part. Feels familiar, and yet I don't think I read it... BUT THEN I DO. And then I don't.

    Not surprised about your lack of plot-progress, somehow. We'll work on it together for real next time we see each other :)

  5. Amanda - Thanks! I'm glad the tension was visible. :) And no worries about the post. :P I have dealt with worse before! (In real life.) Thanks for stopping by here!

    Jessie - You haven't read it before, but Axel does have a habit of standing behind Emelie a lot. And it was a move that you-know-who'd do with the other you-know-who. ;)

    I'm not sure if I should laugh or pout about you not being surprised! I'll settle for a laugh. But it sounds like a plan. :)

  6. Hi! I'm a fellow crusader. Glad you took time out to join the Crusade. :) Great scene!

  14. Hi, Devin,

    Nice to meet you...

  15. Hey Devin,

    See...I made it. Great post. I really like the sexual tension between your two characters. Swoon worthy and steamy. Glad we are in the same group. I look forward to reading more.
