Swoon Thursday (#21): Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout

This week, my swoon is from Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout!


He crowded me as soon as I entered his study, picking up a strand of my hair and then letting it fall back onto my shoulder. I was all too aware of the way my body tensed as he stepped even closer, his chest nearly flush with mine. God, he smelled wonderful - soap and spice. I didn't like that he was this close, and at the same time I sort of craved it in the same way you wanted to do thing you should never do.

Breathless, I struggled to get back to the important stuff. "Do they know I'm here" Will there be-"

Clasping the sides of my cheeks, he drew my mouth to his. The kiss took me completely off guard. It was fierce, punishing, and hard, but my lips immediately parted. A hot, sweet flush swept through my body.

He backed me up against a stacked bookcase. The length of his arousal pressed against my belly as his hands skimmed over my arms, down to the tips of my fingers, and to the drawstring on my shorts.

"The Luxen was looking for you," he said, unraveling the string with quick, nimble movements. "He is no longer looking for anyone."
