From Dark Lover by JR Ward

He reached for her before she even sensed he’d moved. She was walking along and then she was in his arms. One of his hands clamped onto the base of her neck. The other pulled her hips tight against him. His erection was a thick rope on her belly.
She closed her eyes. Every inch of her skin came alive, her temperature soaring. She hated the reaction to him, but like the man, she had no control over it.
She waited for his mouth to come down on hers, except he didn’t kiss her. He bent his lips to her ear instead.
“Don’t trust me. Don’t like me. I could give a shit. But don’t you ever lie to me.” He took a deep breath, as if he were drawing her into him. “I can smell the sex coming off you right now. I could take you down on this sidewalk and be up that skirt of yours in a heartbeat. And you wouldn’t fight me, would you?”
No, she probably wouldn’t.
Because she was an idiot. Who evidently had a death wish. 
His lips brushed the side of her neck. And then his tongue licked her skin lightly. “Now, we can be civilized and wait until we get home. Or we can get down to it right here. Either way, I’m dying to come inside you again, and you’re not going to say no.”

  1. Back in October 2008, I read my first romance book: Dark Lover. I was immediately drawn into the wonderful world of Paranormal Romance. This book holds a special place in my heart – as do Wrath and Beth. And this scene – I can’t tell you how many times I re-read it. It just was magic for me.

  2. I love this book! One of my fav’s now I am going to have to go back and have a personal readship with this book! Thanks for the snippet it was loverly!

  3. Could I possibly love this series any more than I already do? I don’t think so. I adore each and every one of the Brothers and could read these books again and again:) Great snippet choice!

  4. Thank you SO much for introducing me to this series!! The years may fly by, but the steam… is still hotter than an iron in August.

    The Sookie Stackhouse Series was my “Twilight,” then I read BDB right after that, thanks to you. Cheers! -Westie
