A Nice Dose Of Smoulder From An Unexpected Place

Ok I'll admit, it doesn't seem to take much to get me excited lately and reaching for something to cool myself off with. I blame the hormones I'm taking but it honestly feels like I've spent most of the past month in a constant state of being extremely overheated. Shadowfever sure as heck didn't help - my gosh Barrons just turns me inside out with his intensity *looks around for something to fan myself with* and last night *throws the fan on the desk and reaches for my iced water* I read Stacey Kennedy's Whispers of Evil and thought I'd combust. So I made myself a rule - no more steam (yeah right) until my poor body can recover and no more lusting after book characters (ok you can stop laughing now) I woke up this morning firm in my new resolve and lasted all of... *looks at my watch* an hour!! I swear I stayed away from all the yummy books calling me from my book shelves and Kindle but I swear I'm being stalked!! I was googling around on the Internet and came across some teasers for the upcoming City Of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare. Safe choice, right? WRONG!! I came across the last teaser offered and almost fell off my chair. Here it is -


"The alley and the music all fell away, and there was nothing but her and the rain and Jace, his hands on her. . . He made a noise of surprise, low in his throat, and dug his fingers into the thin fabric of her tights. Not unexpectedly, they ripped, and his wet fingers were suddenly on the bare skin of her legs. Not to be outdone, Clary slid her hands under the hem of his soaked shirt, and let her fingers explore what was underneath: the tight, hot skin over his ribs, the ridges of his abdomen, the scars on his back. This was uncharted territory for her, but it seemed to be driving him crazy: he was moaning softly against her mouth, kissing her harder and harder, as if it would never be enough, not quite enough —"

*scoops ice out of drink and dabs forehead* Wow, right? Totally unexpected  and I have to say I'm looking even more forward to reading the book now. Can you imagine standing with Jace, your bodies pressed tightly together inch by blessed inch, lips locked as you share a passionate moment, hands roaming as they touch everywhere.... IN THE RAIN!! *rolls eyes at self*  I swear I need rehab or something. Anyone want to join  me? *reads the teaser again* Ah dang. Screw it!! *tips the iced water over her head* I'm a goner LOL

Wow, I can not blame you reading that scene.lol. I am just half way through City of Glass, and now I am going to be dying to read this book.


And I sometimes have to take a break away from all those adult books. After I read Merry Gentry series, I so needed a breather.lol.

I love this post though. Not many people will admit to feeling like this over a book!!! Even I tamed it down, but I totally agree!!

Goodness I have only read City of Bones and I was upset by the ending in that one so I keep putting off reading City of Ashes and Glass. I might just have to dust those off and read them so that I can read City of Fallen Angels when it comes out. I love YA but it usually never gets that steamy. I think I'm having the opposite problem as you though. I keep reading all of these teen books but I'm really craving a good adult steamy romance. :)

LOL I gave up trying to steer away from the yummies - I feel like I go into withdrawl when I do. I need something warm considering its so cold outside with tons of snow.
