Is It Getting HOT in Here???

Happy Valentines Day!
In case you haven't heard, Cassie Cook and Hope Roberson are hosting the "Is it Getting Hot in Here?" Blog Hop, in honor of Valentines Day!

Here's what to do: Please share one of your favorite kissing scenes from a book you've read, from your own WiP, make one up, or write about one of your own memorable kisses.

In all honesty... I've had some totally awesome kisses, but... I have only wrote one "kissy" scene and it's not quite HOT enough for such a hop. So... I'm going to share one of my favorites! This scene is from SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi and it had me blushing from head to toe! Love it!
My face is in his hands and my lips are at his lips and he's kissing me and I'm oxygen and he's dying to breathe. His body is almost on top of mine, one hand in my hair, the other feeling its way down my silhouette, slipping behind my knee to pull me closer, higher, tighter. He drops kisses down my throat like ecstasy, electric energy searing into me, setting me on fire. I'm on the verge of combusting from the sheer thrill of every moment. I want to dive into his being, experience him with all 5 senses, drown in the waves of wonder enveloping my existence.

I want to taste the landscape of his body.

He takes my hands and presses them against his chest, guides my fingers as they trail down the length of his torso before his lips meet mine again and again and again drugging me into a delirium. I never want to escape. But it's not enough. It's still not enough. I want to melt into him, trace the form of his figure with my lips alone. My heart is racing through my blood, destroying my self-control, spinning everything into a cyclone of intensity. He breaks for air and I pull him back, aching, desperate, dying for his touch. His hands slip up under my shirt, skirting my sides, touching me like he's never dared to before, and my top is neraly over my head when a door squeaks open. We both freeze.

I warned you it was HOT in here! Thanks Cassie and Hope for the fun blog hop! 
Now everyone hop around and check out the other awesome "kissing scenes."

Just read that book last week. Pretty darn hot! After like 20 tries with Blogger blocking my every attempt, I am finally a follower!

Jenny S. Morris said...

What I love about these 2 is she can't touch anyone else. She longs for interaction with another human and that's what these scenes so awesome!

Agreed about this scene! I think when I first read this book, I slowed down and read this scene multiple times. I love it. There's so much emotion in it.

Whoa. I don't think I've ever been kissed like that before. Damn.

Also, I believe that excerpt just melted the inner components of my computer. Yes, it's hot in here. :)
