This week I’m choosing a past Thirsty Thursdays topic…first kiss. Usually the first kiss between characters is pretty memorable right?!? I’ve picked four to share today, and because some of the scenes are pretty long I’ve narrowed them down to a few lines…
“Don’t judge a book by its cover”- this is the motto I always try to follow when choosing a book. What I usually focus my attention on is the blurb and if it sounds good and convinces me, then I’ve found a new book to read. But let’s face it, book covers are extremely important. They’re what catches your eye, and I’d be lying if I said that I never picked up a book because of its cover. Yes, because when a book has a beautiful cover it immediately draws you in.
The synopsis: Four years ago, Jocelyn Butler left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Edinburgh. Burying the grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without any real attachments has worked well for her so far but when Joss moves into a fantastic apartment on Dublin Street, her carefully guarded world is shaken to its core by her new roommate’s sexy older brother.
Braden Carmichael is a man who always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Jocelyn in his bed. Knowing how skittish Joss is concerning any kind of relationship, Braden proposes a sexual arrangement that should satisfy the intense attraction between them without it developing into anything ‘more’. An intrigued Jocelyn agrees, completely unprepared for the Scotsman and his single-minded determination to strip the stubborn young woman bare… to the very soul.
