I just finished Vagabonds, On The Run and I really enjoyed this! This is a new series for Jade and I couldn’t wait to just gobble this up! This story revolves around Kyle Summers and how Vagabonds was made. It starts out to me with an awesome prologue. It pulled me in from the get go and I just had to know her story. This gives us insight into how things were for Kyle, how she grew up and where she is now once we . She is one strong kick-ass character. She is a strong 16 year old girl that just wants to play her guitar. This is how she copes, what she breathes, this is where the magic happens. I was just amazed at how talented she was portrayed. Jade really put me into the story where I could just close my eyes an hear the riffs that Kyle played. I felt like I was there when she let people see what she could really do. She is one strong character that is only going to get stronger as we follow along and I cannot wait to see what happens!
It was dark and quiet and I realized I had this man alone…all by himself and just for me. “Peter said something about trying to have our two bands do a show or two together near the end of our tour.”
My words came out fine but they didn’t sound right to my ears. “That would be cool.”
My mind was other places.
His words didn’t sound right either because I think his thoughts were in the same place mine were. “Nice nose piercing by the way.”
Maybe it was unnecessary because his face was already closer to mine, but I pulled the neck of his t-shirt into the ball of my fist and said, “Would you shut up and kiss me already?” I pulled him the rest of the way to my face but he was moving too. Still, like a fucking tease, he paused with his lips just centimeters away and his eyes scanned mine. He laced the fingers of his right hand through my hair, almost as if to anchor me, and I closed my eyes. I could feel the heat of his lips before they actually touched mine, and when they did, I felt my entire body tense up and my soul began to sing. My mouth opened to take him in and his tongue traced my upper one, teasing once more, making my body tense up again. My core felt like it was vibrating and catching on fire while my insides were turning into a puddle. I could feel my heart begin to thud in my chest as though it were going to explode, and I touched his tongue with mine. Holy shit, he tasted delicious, and I knew right then that I could do this all day. But then we stopped and I sucked in a breath, and it was hard to reach the bottom of my lungs. I forced myself to relax my hand and splayed my palm against the shirt on his chest. It was then that I noticed my panties were wet.
He opened his eyes, a tiny smile turning up the corners of his lips. “That what you had in mind?”
Still hard to breathe. “Yeah.” And speak. My mind was officially blown.
