I'm excited to be one of the blog stops on Christie Anderson's Deep Blue Secret Blog Tour!! I love being able to spread the word about new authors and fill other readers TBRs (hehehe I'm crafty that way) So today, I asked to share an excerpt because isn't that THE perfect way to showcase and tempt and tease? Here you all go ....
~ Book Excerpt ~
I moved near him and his hand guided me in front of the bench, but I turned towards him instead of sitting. His stance shifted back, pulling slightly away. I wanted to reach out and hold him, but I refrained, feeling unsure. I stood there unmoving, still gazing up at him. He was tall compared to a lot of boys I knew. I searched his face for any sign of reciprocation and moved closer. This time he didn’t move away.
“Thank you again,” I said softly, looking up at him through my lashes.
There was a long, heavy pause. I waited breathlessly for his response. His glowing eyes met mine and their radiance hypnotized me. I could see nothing else.
I felt it again, the unexplainable connection between us. Time slowed. I inched towards him, wishing for his lips on mine. His hand lifted gently to my waist, sending a thrill through me in every direction. Never before had I felt the desire to kiss someone so fervently, the divine first kiss I’d always dreamed of.
There was no trace of resistance left on his face. He leaned towards me and my heart raced. Our faces grew slowly together as I looked from his dazzling eyes to his inviting lips.
How'd that work for you? Would like to read another?
My eyes remained fixed on his face, spellbound, unable to look away. I feared he might disappear. His gaze met mine and his expression intensified. It seemed he felt the same way, like he knew me too.
Suddenly the earth stopped spinning. It was only the two of us moving together through space and time, as if the universe finally came into balance. His mouth turned up at the corners, smiling gently through his eyes. He didn't say anything, just looked at me thoughtfully like he knew what I was thinking. His hand brushed along my forehead, smoothing a stray hair through his fingers and back into place.
If I could freeze time, I would choose this moment. Of all the pleasant things I'd experienced in my life, none could compare. There was something unspoken between us, a feeling I couldn't deny. Something I couldn't explain.
