Hello! I'm currently in the process of merging my 3 sites to make it easier for me to keep everything up.

So all book tours that have a ROMANCE title will be posted to the new site instead of here on Booksniffer Book Reviews. All non-romance titles will still be posted here.

Those posts can be found here:

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but it'll be better in the long run.

Swoon Thursday: ABSOLUTE ZERO by Lynn Rush

Hosted by YA Bound

I'm swooning over...

Absolute Zero by Lynn Rush

This week's swoon is going to be a little long,
but this is one of my favorite swoony scenes between Mandy and Nate,
and I didn't want to cut anything out of it.

I promise you won't be disappointed... ;)

His kiss intensified until he had me dizzy. Gentle hands worked my tank top up slightly, and he leaned back. "Okay?"

I raised my arms and sat up as I nodded. He guided my shirt over my head, and I rested on my back again, reaching for him. He snatched my hand and pressed it against the pillow. Slowly his gaze roamed over my body.

Heat surged through me as I lay before him in only my red bra. His fingertips grazed along my wrist, my arm and to my shoulder. "Soft," he whispered.

It was like he was absorbing everything he touched and saw. Committing it to memory. Resting back I gave him free rein, bathing in his attention. I'd never felt to treasured.

He leaned into me, dropping one of his massive thighs between my legs. A zip of energy pulsed through me, and I drew in a sharp breath at the pleasure of it.

"Feel good?" he asked, still tracing his fingers along my skin, toward my neck.

"Yes," I whispered.

He pressed his palm against my chest while his fingers caressed my throat, and he closed his eyes. "Your heart pounds. I love that feeling."

"You're getting me worked up." I couldn't help but smile.

"I am?" Wonder-filled eyes looked down at me. "I enjoy touching you."

"You've never even touched a girl?" I cupped the side of his face, and he closed his eyes briefly.

"Not like this." He leaned into me more. "Read"

I traced his smooth skin over his shoulder. He'd probably not been touched either. I gripped his waist, and he let out a long sigh. I wasn't even close to experienced, but learning with Nate...that sounded like fun.

He pressed a kiss to my lips, then my cheek and neck as his hand slid further down. He'd not ever done this, but he must have read something good to be so slick, because he seemed to know what he was doing.

So gentle and tender.

His hand cupped my breast, and we both took in a sharp breath. I arched into his touch and tugged him in for a kiss. It wasn't so tender this time, but that was okay with me.

Soon he inched down and kissed my chin, then nuzzled his face to my neck. Nips and playful sucks had me squirming beneath his touch.

"Nate," I gasped.

He groaned against my skin. "You're so responsive." Hot breath danced along my neck. "Amazing. You're amazing."

His voice was filled with so much awe I couldn't help but smile. He shifted between my legs, and that had me gasping again. I only wore pajama shorts and him only pajama pants so I felt every hard plane of his body.

My abdomen tingled as heat shot straight through it.

Kissing a trail from my neck to my chest stoked the fire even hotter, and I couldn't help moving against him, needing more pressure. More of his touch.

Nate propped his elbow into the bed right beside my head, but his other hand trailed down. "Trust me?" He nipped at my bottom lip. "Mandy?"

I clung to him like the buoy he was and nodded.

His hand curved around my butt, then gripped the back of my thigh. Oh the electricity that ignited...

He pulled my leg up a little and shifted against me until I nearly leapt out of the bed. His kiss swallowed my cry as he picked up the pace. Heat and energy erupted in my chest, my abdomen...and lower.

I grabbed his shoulders as I arched into him. I closed my eyes, but bursts of white lights lined the corners of darkness. My lungs felt two sizes too small, but I just held on for dear life to the one person I trusted with my life.

And now, with my heart.

Buy NOW!!

What's making you swoon this week?

To be honest, I love Nate and Mandy together more the Mandy and Zach...

LynnRush May 23, 2014 at 2:52 PM

ME, too, Christina. I'm glad to hear that. It's always a little risky to change up heroes... :)

Nate always puts a HUGE smile on my face and makes me feel giddy. There are times when he seems so innocent, and then others where he's just smokin' hot.

I think this scenes shows that perfectly.
