****Proving that young adult romance can be sexy. Jake and Emily, the central characters have so much passion and commitment to one another, the book is full of tender moments.
“Let’s go swimming,” I say, already heading outside. I set my bag on the couch and go to the pool. Forget a bathing suit. We are going skinny dipping. I peel off my clothes and hear Jake laugh behind me. Once naked, I walk down to the deep end, glance at a half naked Jake, and jump in.
The cool water chills my bones at first. I come up for air, just as Jake jumps in next to me. He comes up with a smile. This is thrilling. “Come here,” he says pulling me to him. I wrap my legs around him and my arms around his neck.
“God, I love you,” I tell him. I give him a kiss. Minutes later, we come up for air. I give him an evil grin and dunk him. I swim off as fast as I can, but Jake grabbed my leg. I scream, swallowing water as my head goes under. Jake’s big hands pull me up and holds me tightly against him. “That was not a smart move, Sweetness.”
“What are you going to do about it,” I challenge as he walks up backwards to the steps on the shallow end.
He smirks. “Oh, I’m going to make you pay. And after I do, Sweetness, you’ll think twice next time.” He sits on the second to last steps, keeping us in the water. My legs are wrapped around him and my hands rest on the back of his neck.
Jake takes my neck and brings my lips to his. I’m caught up in the kiss that it catches me completely off guard when I feel his fingers inside of me. My moan is muffled by his tongue. His fingers move faster and I squirm against him. “Let’s go inside,” I plead as Jake’s hot tongue moves down my neck. He stands and I hold on to him. His fingers and his tongue don’t stop as he carries me upstairs where we make love.
