Grown-up love stories, because we're never too old for a little sexy romance…

8-Sentence Sunday


weekend_writing_warriorsveteransbadge_4It’s Sunday and time for eight more sentences from The Summer of Second Chances. Ben’s resistance is gone and Sophie’s suddenly shocked as hell that he succumbed, but she’s enjoying herself…

Sophie moaned into the kiss. His hands were driving her insane—he traced the path of her spine and fire followed each touch. When she arched against his palm, he slid his fingers under the elastic band of her built-in bra, then around to cup her breast. As his thumb brushed her nipple, sanity rose to the surface for a brief moment. Dear God, she’d really done it. She wasn’t sure what astonished her more, the fact that she’d actually seduced him or the amazing sensations he was creating inside her with his touches.

One more devastating kiss and  the whys and whats no longer mattered. Dancing her hands down his ribcage, she reached under his shirt to touch the heated skin of his back…

So…there we have it. Sophie and Ben are finally on their way. They are headed to bed…right? Ummmm… well…

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you continue to be intrigued by Sophie and Ben. Stay tuned for more from The Summer of Second Chances. Comments are welcomed and encouraged.

    Dude! You cannot end with umm..well… After she worked so hard to make this happen, you’re not going to let her have it? That’s just cruel. But makes for good story. 🙂

    Hey Shannyn, thanks for stopping by. Yeah, I can end with well…umm…because, well, you’ll see why. She worked hard, but you know, life is tough all over and we don’t always get what we want… 😉

    I love that she has that moment of surprise that her ploy worked and they really are getting intimate! Great 8!

    She was too sure about it, Veronica, so when it worked, it did surprise her. It’s not really her style, but it could begin to be, right? Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh my…wonderful seduction with an apparently great payoff…at least it seems that way for now…but you’ve worried me with your teasing 😉

    I’m a dreadful tease, but it’ll pay off, I promise! Thanks, Sarah!

    Sizzling Snippet;). I am with Shannyn and hope you won’t be too cruel to Sophie, but I guess as an author you have to hurt your darlings;).
