This week I’m joining in the Sunday snogging because it’s for a cause that is close to my authorly heart. I might not have met Sommer Marsden in real life but we’ve chatted on Facebook and we almost share a birthday and right from the start of my writing career she has been an enormous inspiration to me. It was Sommer who gave me one of my first good reviews for my story in Uniform Behaviour and I have been following her writing ever since.
She has been going through the wringer recently with her husband’s illness and there have been so many times that I’ve wished I could help just a little more than sending positive thoughts and hugs across the Atlantic. Well today I can do that little bit more and so I am. Below is a kissing excerpt from my story Taking Care of Business which I hope you enjoy, but more importantly please follow this link and donate a little something to help Sommer. She has to be so strong every day to be the incredible support to her whole family that she is and still manages to write and blog and comment on Facebook to keep us all up to date… sometimes you just need that extra boost to keep you going and that is what Smut for Good is trying to do.
So Sommer – you’re awesome and I love you. You inspire me daily and I hope that the support from Smut for Good helps you just a little on this crazy journey.
As well as asking you to donate, I’m going to give you something back! If you leave a comment below I will randomly pick one of you to receive a copy of the anthology “Smut in the City” that my story comes from! Draw will take place on Wednesday 17th September so please remember to leave a contact in your message (email address or Twitter)
Enjoy the kissing and have a wonderful rest of your weekend…..
Love Lexie xxxx
Excerpt from “Taking Care of Business” from “Smut In The City”
Anyway that fateful night Mickey had been told to take me home and I had felt a surge of crazy which left him with no chance of escaping me. I had waited until we were a mile or so away, and I was sure that there were no lights following us before I pounced. I flattered, I stroked, I teased until he was panting and then I moved in for the kill. I thought he’d hesitate, that the thought of Luca finding out would stop him but he was a pushover. When his lips met mine it was as though it was meant to be. Soft, cool and damp and I couldn’t get enough. I wanted him to take me somewhere we could fuck but he was a bigger person than me and he wanted to make sure we knew what we were getting ourselves into. I just wanted to lose myself in him, to find my oblivion in our bodies merging, him filling me, blocking out everything else that I didn’t want to think about.
