Sexy Snippets (1) -- "North of Heartbreak"

Tuesdays have never been so sexy!
Sexy Snippets is a weekly feature hosted by Reading Between the Wines for the 18+ crowd. To join in visit this week's Sexy Snippets post on RBtW!

This is my first week participating, but I've been meaning to do so for a few months now! :)


I just started North of Heartbreak today, so I'm not too far into it, but when I came across this scene, I just knew I had to share it. It's not blatantly sexy, but rather pulls it off in a much more subtle way. I love it! :) Liam and Willa may still be working through their problems, but the tension and chemistry between them is--Wow!

North of Heartbreak by Julie Rowe

"Really?" She stood and put her hands on her hips. "Like what?"

He stepped close, enough to cause a shiver of desire to ripple down her spine. "Like kiss you."

Hot, she was molten hot. The air she breathed in scorched her lungs, and her body burned.

Very slowly, he cupped her cheek with one hand and rubbed his thumb over her bottom lip then leaned down to whisper. "Or maybe feed you by hand."

So gentle. He touched her as if she were fragile, precious, and seduced with a tender voice and words that conjured up images of him on his knees, serving her.

"What will you feed me?" she heard herself ask.

His smile promised sin itself. "Anything you want."

I think that last sentence says it all! :) Sin itself, indeed.

I'll have my full review of this book up later this week, and Julie will be by for an interview April 24th!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! :)

      This is one of those rare passages that not only make you heat up, but also make you melt for the hero--it's sweet and spicy all in one! My favorite kind!

      I highly recommend this book so far, it's a great book, very sweet and yet, as this proves, it has some great spice to it, too.
