J.R. Ward Offers Snippet of Lover At Last!

Lover At Last by J. R. WardOn her Facebook page, J.R. Ward teases us with a bit from the forthcoming Lover at Last, which gives us Qhuinn and Blaylock’s story:

Qhuinn was vaguely aware that his chest was pumping up and down and that his hands had become fists-“Pull the f*ck over!” he screamed as he slammed the dashboard hard enough to send one of the air vents flying.

The flatbed was wrenched over and the brakes squealed as their velocity slowed. But Qhuinn was out of there. Dematerializing, he escaped through the crack in the window... along with Blay’s exhale.

Lover at Last, pg. 51 of the manuscript

That wasn't even a snack let alone a That was more like an itty bitty crumb. If it's going to be like that, I'll just wait until the book comes out.

Not nearly enough. All that does is make you lick you lips and want more. Looking forward to this one for a long time.

That wasn't even a crumb. That was a crumb that you notice on a plate just before it gets rinsed. Too late to even reach out and grab it.

And I had such hopes when I read, "Qhuinn was vaguely aware that his chest was pumping up and down and that his hands had become fists".

I was hoping his hands had fisted in the sheets of the bed he was sharing with Blay!

Here's my take on this little snippet: Blay, Saxton and Qhuinn are all
sitting on the bench seat in a flatbed tow truck, with Saxton in the
middle. After watching Saxton repeatedly squeeze Blay's thigh and slowly
climbing higher to Blay's crotch and after asking Blay casually
(burning up inside with jealousy)to pull over saying he'd get himself
back to the mansion, Qhuinn couldn't take it anymore and blew up.
Instead of breaking his cousin's face, he slammed his fist into the
dash, before anyone could question his attitude, he dematerializes.

Ladiromance - I think you probably have guessed that snippet correctly. We must remember this is only at page 51 and they would never get together that early in the book.
Qhuinn and Blay both need to just let their feelings for each other show and just let the love/lust for each other develop and quit being so frustrated!!!! Thanks for the snippet!
