Each day until release day, I'll be spotlighting a teaser snippet from one of the books included.
Day 1: Huddle Up by Liz Matis
Angel nodded towards the door. Once they were in the hallway, she touched his arm. “I’m sorry about earlier.”
Billy looked down at the hand on his bicep. He flexed the muscle.
“Oh,” she gasped.
“What are you exactly sorry about?” He stepped closer, brushing his fingers along her cheek. “Being interrupted?”
“Yes, I mean, no.” Angel backed away.
But he persisted, backing her up against the closed door of her room. His fingers threaded through her long black hair. “Do you remember the first time we kissed?”
“No, I mean, yes.”
Billy captured her breathless whisper in a gentle kiss. Her lips tasted like heaven and sugar. Angel’s hands rested unsure upon his chest as if ready to ward him off, and then they slid around his body as she melted into him. His body hardened. His blood raged for more, but still he kept the kiss soft, unwilling to ruin the sweetness of the moment.
He had a choice. Play the short game for instant gratification or the long game for the win. The long game took patience and that was a game strategy Billy had never excelled at, but to win Angel, he’d learn some new moves. He pulled away. Looking into her eyes he read the emotion there and knew he made the right call. Trust.
Walking into his bedroom he realized it was only nine. Unless he wanted to run into Angel and test his new found patience, he was in a prison of his own making. At least he had cable.
