This week, my swoon is from Defiance by C.J. Redwine!
He lets go, and I reach for him. Twining my fingers through his, I feel something soft warm the silence within me a little as he tangles his legs with mine until I can't tell where one of us ends and the other begins.
But it isn't enough. The ache within me pushes against my chest, tingles down my arms, and hurts the tips of my fingers. I need to disappear into what we are together.
I need him.
I pull him against me as we start floating back toward the surface, and he smiles.
We break the surface together, and the air feels alive in a way it didn't before. He smooths my hair out of my eyes, and I impatiently shoves his hands out of my way so I can reach him.
"Kiss me," I say, and I don't even have time to blush at the audacity of my words before he slides a hand into the hair at the nape of my neck and tugs me toward him.
Our noses bump, and his laugh sounds breathless. "Sorry."
"Don't be sorry. Hurry up and kiss me."
He tightens his arms around me and touches his lips to mine. His kiss is rough, tastes like lake water... and is the best thing I've ever felt. I press against him, consuming him like I'll never get enough, and when we break apart, my pulse pounds against my ear, and his chest rises and falls like he's been running.
