And here is my entry, taken from my current WiP, untitled paranormal-romance. 

“Are you asking me if I’m ready to stop resisting?” Sol ran his thumb across my bottom lip. 
“I am. If tonight’s taught me anything it’s that life is too short.” 
“Yeah?” Even in the dim lamplight I could see the smile on his lips; those gorgeous lips I wanted to crush mine against. 
“Yeah,” I said wrapping my arms around his neck, and finally giving into the desire to run my fingers through his hair.  
“Are you sure you’re ready for this?” he asked, pushing his weight gently against me. We were so close now his hot breath tickled my face.  
“Why don’t I give you a hint?” I used my left hand to tilt his face towards mine, and ran my tongue over his bottom lip. 
In reply, Sol captured my lips with his, and pushed me down into the bed. His tongue explored my mouth, as I pulled the band from his hair, and splayed it over his shoulders.  
The hairs of his goatee tickled my face as our lips melded together, and my hands wondered down the hard planes of his chest. I came to a stop at the hem of his shirt, and ventured underneath it; relishing the feel of his taut muscles under my fingertips.  
We broke apart both breathing heavily and Sol shuffled back from me, though his hands never left where they rested on my waist.  
“I guess that settles it then,” he said huskily, leaving a lingering kiss on my lips.

I hope you enjoyed that little snippet, and if you're so inclined, please check back on Wednesday for another Working Wednesday post

  16. That kiss settled something that has been in the air between these two... a confirmation of something unspoken...?
    And hints at more to come... ooooh... nice tease...
