Here's my excerpt from my YA ghost story called HAUNTED MELODY.
In this scene, Melody (who is haunted by her dead best friend, Paige) cannot contain her attraction to Paige's boyfriend, Paul.
“I do miss her, Mel.”
I bit my lip, moisture blurring my vision.
His fingers stroked up and down my arm, heat rushing to all the wrong places.
“I can’t stop thinking about you,” he murmured. “You’re the only one who gets me right now.”I took a deep shuddering breath, trying to stay rational. “Maybe we’re both just… lost.”
Paul turned toward me, so close that I felt his warm air on my lips.
Paige, this is your chance. Show me this is wrong.
I stared into his eyes, my heart thrashing against my chest.
Soft as a whisper, he brushed his bottom lip against mine. Like he was asking permission.
It was more than I could take. I gripped his face and crushed my mouth into his. A moan escaped him as he wound his fingers in my hair and tugged at me, like he wanted to consume me. The kiss was frantic and desperate, and I pushed the guilt far, far away.
All I wanted was him and this moment.
I drew away to catch my breath just as I heard a bedroom door creek open.
