In honor of the big V-Day I've joined in Christina Lee's and Stina L's Just Kiss Already Blogfest! Below is a 250 word excerpt from my YA contemporary romance Love Potion N° NOT!. Be sure to check out the other entries here. Have a great Valentines Day everyone!
Craig turned towards her, shaking his head. His eyes flickered over her features. “I don’t think you’re a loser, if that’s what you mean.” He took her hand in his and they looked at each other for a moment; crystal blue eyes meeting deep brown.
She barely had time to think before he closed the distance between them in one step and his lips were on hers, nudging her head upwards gently. Avery started in panic, eyes wide and lips pliant beneath his kiss. Warmth from his body seeped through her until her eyes slowly fluttered closed, her lips finally working against his. She ran her fingers up through his soft hair while Craig’s arms circled her, pulling her closer to him. He inched her back toward the brick wall, finally pinning her in place as the kiss grew heated, their mouths meeting harder and tongues sliding together in perfect rhythm. Avery pressed against him and he pressed back, one hand gripping the back of her thigh.
BAM! The door to the parking lot slammed open and Craig pulled away, breathless. “Jesus.” He turned away from the doorway where students began to flow out into the parking lot, signaling the show had ended. Avery gripped the wall behind her, chest rising and lips swollen. They swayed inwards, hungry to take up where they had left off.
Craig’s head flew up, the spell broken. “Shit.” His eyes grazed over Avery’s body once more before he pushed away from the wall. “I gotta go.”
Hubba, hubba! More! More! More!
Phew! The morning's starting hot and heavey. :) And Happy Valentine's Day to you too!
Um, yeah! Loving the second paragraph. More please...
Yeah, that was kinda hot. I need to read more!
It's a good thing he was interupted. That was too hot for me at 8am.
Oh, no! You can't end there. I want more!!!
This is one of my favorite so far. Great kiss!
I love kissing scenes that are interrupted! Great tension.
Haha, you had me front, "I don't think you're a loser ..."
Nice. And when two people get interupted? Frustratingly perfect. Nice job!
Ah, I want more, too! Sounds like the hero is embarrassed--such great tension!
You know I'm always too shy to mention tongue action, but I love that you went for it!
Awesome. BAM! I loved the interruption because I was getting a little uncomfortable. Just kidding. Well done Katie!

Yowzer! That was a steamy kiss. What a shame about the intrusion into the bliss of the kiss. ;)

I love how they wanted to get right back to kissing - and I especially like how you worded it.

Booyah! Up against the wall on school grounds. Now THAT is hot!! Damn stupid schedule interrupting all the fun. I'm with you, Avery, I'd need to grab the wall too!
