Cover Reveal: Mirror X by Karri Thompson

Exclusive Excerpt:

Michael took a seat on the edge of my bed, rocking me toward him. When the side of my thigh met his

knee, my heart rate doubled, and I drew in a deep breath.

“Before you were awakened I spent hours at your bedside imaging what you were like, how your voice

would sound, how you looked when you smiled. When your red lips pulsed, when your chest heaved,

and you took your first breath, I kept my emotions in check. But now, now that you’ve ‘awakened,’

everything is different. I can’t sleep. I can’t stop thinking about you.”

I ignored the pain and tilted closer until the space between our faces was less than a foot. My heart, my

mind, my soul—everything yearned for his affection at that moment.

“I feel the same way, too.”

I closed my eyes, wanting this handsome, earnest guy to take me into his arms and tell me he’d make

them let me go. My lungs expanded with his warm breath and spicy scent. When his lips met mine,

every atom in my body danced, urging me to pull him closer and tighten my grip upon his back.

His kissing became more fiery and I reacted by kissing him harder. It wasn’t until his mouth moved to my

neck, that I came to my senses and drew away.

“Not yet,” I said, scooting away.

“I know,” he said between breaths, rising from the bed. His wiped his forehead with the sleeve of his

uniform and returned to the chair. “I can’t…we can’t. We can never…,” he said abruptly. “It’s against

protocol. I-I should go.”
