Today, I'm sharing another kissy scene from one of my books! Some of you will have seen this one before, but it comes from Blindsided, the second book in the Game On series. This kiss happens between Jesse Shaw, and Isabelle, who Jesse met while on vacation in London. It's their first kiss, and Isabelle's first kiss ever!
“You’re making me nervous,” Jesse said.
“Me?” I laughed. “How?”
“I just … this is a big thing. You have a million expectations of how this should be, and I don’t want to ruin them.”
Silly me. I hadn’t even considered that Jesse was under pressure too. But if he was a rubbish kisser, how would I know? It’s not like I had anything to compare it to.
“Could we try again now, please?” I asked. “I’m ready.”
His fear helped calm my own, and this time I reached for him. His waist was firm. Lean, but muscly and I couldn’t help but wonder how he’d look with his shirt off. I imagined a perfect six pack underneath his blue t-shirt, and I allowed myself an internal swoon at the idea.
Calm down! You haven’t even kissed yet, and you’re already undressing him in your mind!
“Are you sure?” he asked, looking down at me with concern in his green eyes.
I nodded, even though my heart was banging so hard I thought it might leap right out of my chest.
Jesse smiled, and this time when he leaned in, I didn’t run away. My eyes closed, and as his lips lightly touched mine, everything else faded away. I couldn’t hear the cars, or feel the cold. I only felt him, warming me with his kiss.
