 Excerpt

I’m lost to his firm chest,

his slender fingertips, his long wavy hair,

his mouth sucking my bottom lip—

The world spins, the stars shift,

and I can’t see anything except his smoky
gray eyes gazing into mine.

You scare me, whispers
from my mouth across his.

Good, he breathes into me.
I need you to save me.
