“Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this wonderful book
and fall in love.” (5 star review)
“Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. ”
(5 star review)
Today’s snippet is from “I think I Love You”, book 3 of the Australian Sports Stars series.
Markus pulled on her arm until she sat next to him. She didn’t fight him as he shifted her until she was sitting across his lap, leaning against his strong chest. His muscular arms surrounded her and gave her a small measure of comfort. Lifting her head, he wiped away her tears with his thumb. When the powerful waves of emotion dissipated, she met his gaze. His beautiful eyes, matched with his mischievous grin made her melt into a puddle.
In that state of mind, she leaned in and kissed him softly on his lips. When he didn’t move, she leaned back to look at him. Gazing into each other’s eyes, Markus reached up with a smile and gently brushed a curl out of her face.
Feeling a surge of desire mixed with uncertainty, Sarah started to move off his lap, but he grabbed her by the waist and pulled her close again.
He cupped her chin, hesitated, and then lowered his head closer, his lips hovering inches from hers. When he finally kissed her, the kiss was so soft, so subtle, but her heart was pounding.
“Marky, honey, if you tease me I—”
She didn’t get to complete the sentence, after he silenced her with another kiss.
“No more talking,” he said gruffly, while he briefly pulled his mouth away from hers.
Everything inside Sarah tightened as she leaned into him, resting her palm on his chest. All she was able to think of was how well he kissed. He’d definitely improved since they’d last kissed.
“Honey, I had no idea you’re such a good kisser,” she whispered against his lips.
Markus chuckled softly. “Babe, I’ve got many talents.”
Sarah moved her legs to straddle him, saying against his lips, “You taste like forbidden fruit.”
Thanks for all your comments,

LOL … thanks Veronica.
Tantalizing! I love it!
THANK YOU !! ♥
Yes, it’s heating up. Of course, he’s not really forbidden fruit.
He’s her best friend … crossing “that” line can go either way 🙂
