“Passion is that feeling you get when you know you’re about to see him. It is that ache you have in your stomach after you’ve just left him. Passion is the fear of never seeing him again. Passion is what love is all about.”
This quote reminded me of something my sweetie and I were just discussing with utter amazement. So many times, even after all these years, we still get a rush when we see each other. We still want to be together like we want to be with no one else, even minutes after we annoy each other. We still have rose-colored glasses that help us see past the faults and disagreements and everyday problems. We still cuddle and giggle like we just met. For me, that’s how I know it’s love.
That is what I hope everyone has or will find.
Felt like posting something sexy today, and since I’m not ready to share my work-in-progress, here’s a quote from another author of gay romance, J. L. Langley. This is from the first kiss between Ethan and Jamie in the The Tin Star.
Ethan knew it was a bad idea, but he just had to taste that sensual mouth. He leaned forward, his lips lightly brushing Jamie’s. Jamie gasped, and before Ethan knew what hit him, Jamie had taken over, his mouth crushing his, tongue pushing for entrance. He grabbed Ethan’s face with both hands and urgently pressed his body against Ethan’s, or as near to it as he could get with them both still sitting. He was rough, aggressive, practically swallowing Ethan up as his tongue searched and caressed every bit of Ethan’s mouth. Finally, he calmed down a little, gentling the kiss, and Ethan had the chance to kiss him back at last. Jamie’s hands slid to his shoulders. Their tongues met and parried. It was like making slow and easy love. Jamie moaned.
It was one of the most erotic things Ethan had ever heard and made him even more painfully erect.
