Meet Eyes On Me!

Look up the word “nerd” and you’ll find Lily Bailey’s picture. She’s got one goal: first stop valedictorian, next stop Harvard. Until a stint in the hospital from too much stress lands her in the last place a klutz like her ever expected to be: salsa dance lessons.

Look up the word “popular” and you’ll find Stone Torres’s picture. His life seems perfect—star of the football team, small-town hero, lots of friends. But his family is struggling to make ends meet, so if pitching in at his mom’s dance studio helps, he’ll do it.

When Lily’s dad offers Stone extra cash to volunteer as Lily’s permanent dance partner, he can’t refuse. But with each dip and turn, each moment her hand is in his, his side job starts to feel all too real. Lily shows Stone he’s more than his impressive football stats, and he introduces her to a world outside of studying. But with the lines blurred, can their relationship survive the secret he’s been hiding?

~ Excerpt ~

 

I looked at her head on my shoulder, the fairy lights setting the red-gold strands on fire like toasted cinnamon, and my heart lodged in my throat. Swallowing it down, I asked, “Why couldn’t you have taken lessons years ago?”

She made a pleased sound, and her body curved against mine. After a moment, she lifted her head and peered up at me from beneath her lashes. “You weren’t ready for me yet.”

My pulse drummed in my ears. I recognized the heat in her eyes, and an answering one was already building within me. It’d been building all night. Lily’s pink tongue swiped across her parted lips, and my entire world boiled down to one thought: Do they taste as good as they look?

Slowly, I raised my eyes and made my choice.

“Maybe not,” I admitted. I’d been a clueless idiot, and the truth was, I probably hadn’t been ready before. I waited until those big blue eyes were locked on mine again before saying, “But I’m ready now.”  

Her whole body went still.

Not looking away, not wanting to read this wrong, I lowered my head and watched as Lily’s eyelids drooped. She tilted her chin, offering me her mouth…and I took it.

The first brush was easy. Sweet, like her, and so damn soft. Twisting on the seat, I brought my hands up to cradle the sides of her face, and she made a low noise in the back of her throat.

I smiled, triumphant. Then, I deepened the kiss.

Lily tasted like mint and vanilla. Groaning, I swept my tongue into her warm mouth, and she responded with a tiny, tentative flick. I felt it in my toes. Sliding a hand around her head, I knotted my fingers in the silkiness of her hair, tugging her even closer, and she sighed.

I could get addicted to that sound.

My free hand dropped to her hip. Wanting to explore but also not wanting to push, I kneaded the soft flesh through her oversize T-shirt. Lily wasn’t so cautious. She raked her nails across my abdomen, flinging her long leg over my lap, and I gripped her hips, yanking her higher.

With shy hands, Lily traced every line of my abs. As she did, little whimpers escaped her lips, and I sent up a silent shout of thanks to every coach who’d ever made me do a sit-up.

When air became a necessity, I broke away, sliding openmouthed kisses down her throat. Her citrus scent surrounded me. At the sensitive hollow where neck and shoulder met, I lowered my forehead, breathing her in, and wrapped my arms around her. Lily slid her hand between us and placed it over my heart, where it pounded beneath her fingertips.
