Sunday Snog 100: An Engagement Challenge #Givingback #MedecinsSansFrontieres

Welcome to the 100th Sunday Snog hosted by BlisseKiss. It's a chance to enjoy lots of hot snogs and the chances to win lots and lots of fabulous prizes! Please also consider visiting our Just Giving Page and donating to Médecins Sans Frontières so we can help these brave doctors kiss lots of boo-boos better.

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is a worldwide movement. They deliver medical aid to the people who need it most, wherever they are. We’re hoping to make at least 100 pounds to contribute to their work. Here’s to many snogs and many donations which will help to make this world a better place.

I've taken my Sunday Snog from An Engagement Challenge. In this scene, Paul and Ijay kiss for the first time and Ijay's response changes Paul's plans.

I'm giving away two eBooks from my backlist to 2 lucky commenters. All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what you enjoyed about this snog.

Resigned and ready to give up the waiting, his nerves wound tight, he [Paul] froze for the briefest of moments when the sliding door opened again.
“I’m back.”
Ijay stood there with a bold smile. The bolt of hunger that hit his solar plexus nearly buckled his knees. His body’s need for her was simple yet primal, a new and yet age-old desire. It gave him a single-minded objective squashing all his previous doubts about getting together with her.
This was all wrong. Yet she was all right.
He couldn’t stop his legs from moving forward as if of their own will toward her. His hands reached for her, pulling her against his body. He moved one hand to the nape of her neck while the other wrapped around her waist. Tilting her head up, he claimed her lips hungrily.
He heard her soft surprised gasp. Still, she didn’t resist his lips’ onslaught. Instead she wrapped her arms around his neck, her body clinging to his in seemingly wanton supplication.
Suddenly the world was right and yet off kilter at the same time. Her warm and gentle cuddle was like a hand wrapped around his heart, squeezing it tenderly. He hadn’t been prepared for her affection. He’d expected their encounter to be that of cool strangers satisfying a pure need and moving on.
Yet in the moments of their kiss, as she opened her yielding lips for the voracious sweep of his tongue and he tasted her eager submission, it occurred to him that their encounter could be more than he’d initially thought.
With that realization, he pulled back his head, breaking the kiss.

Blurb:

Book 2 of the contemporary romance Challenge series, set in Nigeria. Three friends. Three challenges. Are they willing to risk everything for love?

When savvy PR consultant Ijay Amadi meets successful Industrialist Paul Arinze, the only things on her mind are to forget the pain of her failed relationship and enjoy the delights his branding touch and soul-searing kiss promise. It’s a one-time only event. Perfect.

However, Paul is annoyed to wake up and find her gone the next morning. He isn’t ready to forget the dark-haired beauty or their scorching night together just yet. So he plans to have Ijay right where he wants her—in Abuja, working on his latest business project by day and enjoying the pleasure of his bed by night.

Except when Ijay arrives, she’s wearing another man’s engagement ring. With the explosive desire between them threatening their priorities and loyalties, the stakes get higher by the minute. Who’ll be left standing at the altar when Ijay walks down the aisle?
