Excerpt from Someone to Stay

“Cassie…” he said, and her eyes landed on his mouth. Her name had never sounded richer than when he said it, she thought then, and she squeezed his arm, willing him to say whatever was next.

And then, softly, “I’d very much like to kiss you right now.”

Her heart immediately quickened its already fast pace, and she found herself at a loss for words. She struggled to reply – her brain to mouth connection seemed to be temporarily out of order – and instead of words, without thinking, she reached her other hand up, landing it lightly against his jawline; she was startled to feel how warm it was.

Perhaps it was sheer nerves that forced her to stand on her tip-toes, making her hand move from his face to the back of his neck, applying pressure. He gave in to the resistance at that point and leaned down, and in one brief, terrifying yet exhilarating moment, he hovered there; she could barely breathe for fear that he’d change his mind.
