Ever have one of those weeks where one disaster happens after another?!? Yeah…this was one of those for me. One of my favorite remedies other than throwing a temper tantrum at the world is to grab a favorite book, and just escape for a while. I let the author transport me somewhere else, anywhere else, and it makes me feel better.
Let’s go take a look at the sentences I picked for you today…
“I never know whether you’re going to be sweet and whisper something that takes my breath away or say something so fucking mean it breaks my…”
“I am a good lover, Julianne, in all senses of the word.”
“As soon as I touched you I knew…and when I touched you again…I remembered you.”
She just gave in, licking, and sucking and moving…
“I’m not going to allow another man to put his hands on you, and that includes Paul and any other Angelfucker out there.”
But snuggled in his arms the night before, a wave of emotion had crashed over her, and all her little defences were carried out to sea like a toppled sandcastle.
She was barely covered and damp from the shower, and the sight of the two together…he twitched.
He fluttered his mouth with soft kisses down to the hollow at the center of her throat and pressed his lips there firmly, beginning his sojourn up and down the right side of her neck.
“Perhaps I’m trying to indicate that if I am this attentive with respect to your culinary longings, I’ll be even more attentive with respect to satisfying other- ah- appetites.”
Gabriel sighed with contentment at the soft warmth of the young woman he treasured in his arms, his nose buried in long, soft, vanilla-scented hair.
It was a good distraction, for it stopped her from thinking about Saturday morning and what Gabriel looked like under his clothes, wet from the shower, dropping a small, purple towel…
“Panting, twisting, touching, yearning, giving, and finally and most gloriously, coming.”
“He’s worried she’ll stand up and throw her bra at him, or hold up an ‘I heart Emerson’ poster.”
As soon as she removed her pashmina, a pair of jealous blue eyes darted across the table, hungrily taking in her newly exposed skin before making a hasty retreat.
Don’t you just love a great sentence? Yeah…me too!
