Weekend Writing Warriors 8 Sentences~Addicted to Magic by Brandi Salazar

With nowhere else to go, I glared up into his dark eyes. "I hate you right now."

His expression turned stormy. "You hate me?" I nodded slowly. "Despise me?" I wasn't sure where he was going with this line of questioning, but I agreed to that too. Planting his hands against the wall on either side of my head, caging me with his body--just as he had at the party--he leaned down, putting us nose to nose. "Good, that means you're passionate."

I didn't have time for a rebuttal. In the next instant Carmen's lips were pressed against mine, hard and sure.


A little info about this scene: This takes place after Jessica returns from a date, only to find herself cornered by her best friend's overbearing and overprotective brother. 


This is the first book in a humor filled, witchy series.
Witt and Romance--Together they can overcome anything...

Jessica Warren comes from a long line of witches. At the age of eighteen her ability to wield magic will intensify and she will be welcomed into the fold with open arms. That is, until she she risks it all.

Magic isn't something to be taken lightly. With each spell cast the user suffers dangerous after effects that carry the potential of destroying their life. After her parent's divorce, Jessica begins abusing her powers, but she really doesn't think she's doing anything wrong--it's everyone else that has a problem.

When her best friend, Amber, informs her that she had a vision of Jessica's mother dying in a car accident, a victim of her own abuse of magic, Jessica is in a race against time to save her mother. Her life is only complicated further when a boy catches her attention and she has to not only save the day, but keep all of her secrets hidden.
