As much as that scene frustrated me, it’s been at least a year or two since I’ve read it and it still sticks with me. Those of us who write on the naughty side of things often go all in, full tilt. For me, it’s something of a personality trait. I don’t tip-toe into the water, I dive into the deep end when I want to do something. Like when I was sixteen I decided I wanted to live in Asia and my silly parents said if I raised the money I could go. Guess who spent her sweet sixteen summer in Russia? This girl!
I made the decision to go on that trip on a split second decision. However, there were months of fundraising and build up to the Big Event. I researched, I dreamt about what I would do, the things I would eat and the places I would see. I was so excited from all the planning and preparation, the actual experience of living in Russia was in trouble of being eclipsed by the buildup.
What am I talking about? What does a derailed sex scene and my teenage crazy life have to do with each other?
In romance it’s that flirting, fun season of a relationship or book where that hot guy might not ask you out. It’s the, “I want you,” said in a big crowd when it’ll take half an hour to get home. Knowing there is a romantic get away in a week, but wanting it now. That’s a type of sexual tension in writing that takes great skill, and I really admire the writers who can make me squirm and yell at the pages to just get nekkid already!
That hero from the Marked book? He didn’t kill the woman, he saved her and they had hot, sweaty sex – that I can’t tell you anything about. What I can tell you is that sitting on the edge of your seat rush has stuck with me. I can tell you details about the scene if you want spoilers, but I’d much rather you read the book yourself.
Can you recall a book that had you squirming in your chair and telling yourself one more page, because maybe then you would know if the characters got together or not?
