If You Stay

I read my first Courtney Cole book last week and I had so much fun reading it and getting to know Pax... sigh! Anyway, here is a tease and the review will be on the blog today!!

As I slide my hands around to her hips, I can feel her pulse in my fingertips. I glance around and find my handprints on her abdomen.

“I’ve imprinted on you,” I tell her, laughing softly. “You’re mine now.”

And it’s true. She’s mine now. She might not know it yet, but it is true.

She swallows hard. I can hear her moist tongue in her mouth and I wish it was in mine. She twists around and her eyes meet mine. I drag my fingers up to her neck, holding her chin as I bring my lips to hers.


Painfully slow.

Her lips are warm and soft and she crushes them harder against me, turning until she’s pressed against me, naked and pliable. And I get my wish. Her tongue plunges into my mouth, quiet and needy.

She melts into me and I press my palms against her back, dragging her to my chest, holding her there tightly.
