Embrace--By Cherie Colyer

Hello again all. Here we are with another blog tour posting. This time it's EMBRACE by Cherie Colyer. Below is an excerpt from the novel. Enjoy!!  Check here for the list of other blogs on the tour.

He had a large mix of alternative and rap music, and mostly male singers, so when I hit a country cd with a blonde on the cover I held it up.
“Taylor Swift?” I asked.
“What?” A red flush crept into his cheeks. “I had a crush on her.”
I looked at the cover. Maybe that was his secret. Maybe he was into blondes. What if I was an experiment to see if they really did have more fun? My dark chestnut hair was about as far from Goldilocks as it could get.
He reached for the cd, but I raised my arm over my head before he could grab it.
“I was young,” he said, lunging forward and missing my hand.
“And you’re so old and wise now,” I teased, moving the cd behind my back.
He grabbed for it, his body practically on top of mine as he tried to catch my hand. I leaned back, laughing.
“Maybe we should play it,” I said, squirming to keep him from being able to reach it.
He wrapped an arm around my back, pulling me closer. “Let’s not.”
We were a jumbled mass of arms and legs. His belt buckle rubbed the bare skin of my stomach, and his neck was in perfect kissing distance. My gaze traveled to his lips. His close proximity had me forgetting I was winning the game of keep-away until he snatched the case from me.
We both laughed as we disentangled ourselves. He tossed Taylor Swift over his shoulder, and the cd conveniently landed on the bed.
“You can tell me the truth.” I went back to his collection, hoping to find something else incriminating. “You’re a little bit country.”
He gave me a sidelong look that said, Puh-lease.
