Today we have a teaser from RECRUITED, the second book in the Outlier Chronicles by Megan Squires. If you haven’t picked up TRACED you are missing out on an amazing dystopian read! RECRUITED is releasing soon…
I’d always thought kissing was something that would become routine—something that if done over and over again with the same person would lose its appeal, would be less mind-altering, would become mundane. But that’s not the case as his mouth roves over mine, exploring my lips like they’re brand new to him, like he’s acquainting himself with their pressure, their taste, their shape. Though the memory of his mouth has a comforting familiarity, the anticipation of what he’ll do next lights fireworks in my stomach. Each movement of his full lips, each variation in heaviness and weight, holds my breath in my lungs, which only escapes in short, quick gasps every time he pulls away and then presses in for another kiss.
“I love you,” I say, tangling my fingers around his neck. It’s the most effortless thing I’ve ever said, the most natural thing I’ve ever done. Loving him is instinctual. And being here with him in this moment feels right, like everything between us has been leading up to this. Like this is the culmination of us. “I love you,” I say again, pausing to gather confidence. “I’ve always loved you. It’s always been you.”

Now for a little unedited teaser from SHATTER, book 2 in the Delaney’s Gift Series….I’m not telling who the two people in this teaser are….;)
“I want to.” Her fingers close around my wrist and they feel so soft.
I move closer to her, as if being pulled by some magnetic force. I gently cup her chin with my hand and draw her face to mine. She steps forward and places her other hand on my waist. I tilt my head and cover her mouth with mine. She tastes sweet, and her lips are warm and soft. For the first time since Delaney went missing, I feel the tension in my body disappear. It’s like as I kiss her, I am surrendering some of my fears and stress to her. It’s as if she’s breathing life into me. I know this is wrong and I should be focusing on Delaney, but I can’t help myself. I sweep my hand up and cradle the back of her head. Our kiss becomes more firm and I drink her in, breathing deeply. The hand that holds my wrist grips me tighter and I feel her nails piercing my flesh.
Just then a knock on the door interrupts us. I release her and stagger backward. She opens her eyes, blinking like she’s coming out of a daze. Reality crashes into me and I feel guilty for my momentary lack of control.
