Tempt Me Thursday (14)

Tempt Me Thursday was created here at The Reader's Antidote, and it's basically Teaser Tuesday on sexy YA steroids and then a synopsis of my current read.

This passage is from Vengeance Bound by Justina Ireland, and the reason I picked it is because this is my favorite passage of the entire book... You'll see why.

I break off the kiss and notice with some surprise that Niko's arms are pulling me even closer. Our bodies are pressed together, and I'm no longer cold. He nuzzles my neck, trailing little kisses down to the space where it meets my shoulder. I lean into his touch, wrapping my arms around him to steady myself, since my legs have gone weak. he kisses the hollow near my ear. "What's your secret?" he whispers, before nibbling my earlobe. I sigh, since I've lost the ability to speak coherently, and he laughs before kissing me again... I start to pull away, but heated, insistent kisses at the base of my throat quickly douse my alarm. I slip my hands under his shirt, and the play of muscles under his skin makes my head feel like it will float away... I don't resist as his hands reach up under my sweater. His fingers are surprisingly warm splayed against the small of my back. He kisses me again, mouth slightly open, and his tongue darts out to meet mine. I tilt my head to the side, slanting my mouth across his so I can taste him...

My current read is for a blog tour, but I'd definitely read this even without the blog tour! It's The Collector by Victoria Scott

He makes good girls...bad. 

Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence have made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple: weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.

Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal-opportunity collector and doesn't want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:

Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within ten days.

Dante doesn't know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect, he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector…and uncover emotions deeply buried.

What's tempting you this Thursday? Let me know in the comments!
