"Don't go yet," he pulls me back into his arms.
My hands are resting on his chest, and I'm looking at them.  My heart is beating so fast.  I really do want to kiss him, buy I'm supposed to be kissing Trent, not Jason.  What's wrong with me?
It doesn't matter.  He leans forward and gently presses his lips to mine.  I quickly slide my hands around his neck, and he pushes my mouth open with his.  He tastes sweet like the fruity wine we've been drinking, and when our tongues met, electricity races to my toes.  A soft noise comes from my throat, and he pulls me closer.  My fingers clutch the soft fabric of his shirt, and his arms are tight around my waist.  But through the haze I remember this in not supposed to happen.  We aren't together anymore, and I'm supposed to be doing this with Trent tomorrow night.  I step back out of his arms and turn toward the door, trying to control my breathing.
"Wait," Jason whispers, catching my hand.  I stop.  "Don't go out with him," he says. (Kindle Location 2585)

Review coming on Thursday for this one.  It's cute so far. 


I have an extra teaser for you today.  Check this one out.  The Cover will be revealed on Friday.

Blurb to come!

“I’m not exactly the guy you fell in love with,” I say.
“That’s true,” she says, placing a hand over my racing heart. “You’re better. You sacrificed
yourself to save me, Ash. Trust me; that earned you a few extra boyfriend points.”
I grin. “Maybe I can stick to buying you flowers in the future?”

(Ash, Phoenix – A Black City Novel, Book #2, June 2013)
