With the release of my second novel Locked Box coming ever closer (March 7) and me being full of newbie nerves I'd like to share an extract to get your ahem, juices flowing? Is that gross? To stir you interest then. Bear witness to Max and Julia's first kiss as they struggle against their attraction to one another within confined quarters.
I really can't wait to see what you think...
Without thinking he seized both her wrists, pulling them down to her sides. Julia drove her forehead into his and sparks exploded behind Max’s eyes. “Ow, fuck!”
Instinctively he forced Julia back, pinning her body to the floor and parting her legs with his thighs. She jerked her hips, trying to throw him off. He pressed down, trapping her under his weight. “Gotcha. Not so tough now are you?”
Julia’s smile was wicked. “No I’m not Max.”
Oh no. Oh fuck. He was on top of her, his hips were bearing down on hers, their eyes were level, their mouths were level. The curve of Julia’s upper lip was inches from his, her. He couldn’t kiss her could he? His heart would give out if he even tried. He waited on the edge of everything for a sign, some confirmation of what to do. His head was pounding, his cock was pounding, his hands still holding her wrists were shaking.
“Max...” Julia’s breath was coming out in light shallows pants. “I-I want you. I’ve wanted you for ages.”
She kissed him soft and slow. Bright spots popped behind Max’s eyes as pleasure twisted like amphetamines in his blood. This is it, he thought. This is fucking it though what that meant he couldn’t begin to explain.
Julia’s hands stroked through his hair and he pulled away, unsure of what was happening.
“Was that bad?” she asked.
“That was the furthest fucking thing from bad.”
He raised a hand to his lips, stroking his tingling mouth. They’d kissed. The girl he liked kissed him. The sensation was as fresh as it had been at fourteen. This is it. This is fucking it.
Before he knew what was happening they were kissing again that graceless, all-consuming way teenagers kissed, like you needed swallow the other person whole and fuck them through their clothes at the same time. Julia stroked his back and shoulders, reaching between them to caress every muscle she could find. She was greedier than he could have possibly imagined and the idea got him hot enough to melt steel. He did a little exploring of his own, sucking on her tongue as he cupped her breasts, kneading the sweet little mounds until she sighed into his mouth. They consumed each other, hips moving restlessly and Julia wrapped her legs around his waist, pressing her jeans against his aching dick. “More.”
Max kissed her neck. “More what baby?”
“Just more. I need more of you.”
He held back, needing to hear her say the words. “Tell me what to do and I’ll do it.”
