“Breathtakingly intense and unbelievably sexy – WITH

EVERY HEARTBEAT will have you packing your bags for Italy to go find a

real-life Raphael. Another sizzling must-read from Melody Grace!”


:EXCERPT:


“Close your eyes. Now listen to the music. Just feel it.”
Raphael’s voice comes, low against my ear.
            I
shiver. In the dark of my mind, my senses are suddenly heightened. I can feel
the heat from his body, just inches away, hear the pulse of the music, like a
wave rolling into shore.
           
“Good, relax, just feel it.”
           
The sensation is overwhelming. The heat of him, the feel of his taut, solid
torso pressing against me, the scent of him, deep and musky. With my eyes
closed, there’s nothing to distract me, no way to block it out or focus away.
Just us: me, him, and the music, nothing else in the world.
           
Raphael’s hands reach further on my hips, drawing me into him. Our bodies slide
together, and the touch is so foreign, so intimate, I find it hard to breathe.
To even think. My heart is racing, every nerve and muscle sparkling with
electricity. I’ve danced with a partner before, of course, hundreds of times,
but that was so different to this sensual rhythm, the thrilling ebb and flow of
movement between us, like we’re bound together by the beat, moving as one.
            I
want to stay locked in this dark, breathless state forever, but I want to see
Raphael more. I force myself to open my eyes. And there he is: staring down at
me, his face inches from mine.
            I
catch my breath, dizzy. His dark eyes blaze under the lanterns, echoing
everything his body is saying. He’s so beautiful up close, so powerful: a dark
angel in the night, awakening feelings I’ve never even dreamed about.
           
And out of nowhere, I realize the truth. I’ve been telling myself it’s just
curiosity pulling me to him, sending me out into the city to find him. But
that’s a lie. This isn’t just a fascination, an idle crush, no, this is
something deeper, a desire that snakes through my veins, hot and hungry.
            I
want him. I want all of him.
           
As if reading my mind, Raphael moves one hand up my back; a slow caress, hot against
my skin. My eyes don’t leave his, but I shiver under his touch, feeling the
heat, the purpose behind his touch as his fingers trace up my spine to the back
of my neck, curling to tangle in my hair.
           
We’re moving slower now, swaying to the beat in a sensual dance. There’s no
space left between us, our bodies pressed together, sweaty and breathless and
feeling so damn right, it’s like I was made to be here, fitted to him, chest to
chest, hip to hip. Raphael leans closer, closer, and I catch my breath, lost in
the rhythm of our bodies, the intensity of his dark eyes, drawing me into him,
so natural, it’s the easiest thing in the world when he closes those last,
precious inches between us, and finds my lips with his.
           
The kiss blazes through me like wildfire.
           
It’s overwhelming, a flood of sensation like I’ve never known before, setting
every nerve ablaze. My brain shuts off, short-circuited by the rush of
pleasure, and all my hesitance is forgotten.
            You
were made for this.
            I
instinctively reach up, pulling his head down to me, hungry for more. Raphael
groans against my mouth, and then he’s kissing me deeper, his lips hot and
demanding, his tongue probing, tasting me, sliding against mine in a sweet rush
of friction that makes me shudder, swaying against him. Raphael grips me
tightly, holding me up with his strong arms, and I melt into him, eager for
more.             
           
God, this kiss is heaven, a dark temptation that blots everything from my mind
until all that exists in my world is him, Raphael, his lips driving me
mindless, his body promising so much more.


           
How did I live before this feeling? How will I ever stop, knowing what I do
now?

:My Review:
Once again Melody has crafted a beautiful love story that swept me away from the very start! I adore her first love stories *sigh* but I believe that With Every Heartbeat is her most romantic thus far. I’m not quite sure if it’s because of the swoony, sexy Raphael or the magical, romantic feel of Rome that Melody effortlessly bought to life for me. Maybe it’s a combination of both. All I know is that Annalise and Raphael’s story left me completely, 100% satisfied. My die hard inner romantic was very happy 🙂 
With Every Heartbeat was not just a love story, it also about two young people finding themselves and learning to follow their own dreams and listening to their hearts; it’s seeing how just the right person can reignite your passion for something when you’ve forgotten why you loved it in the first place. I absolutely cannot wait for book #2 which is about Rosalie but I hope that we get to keep in touch with Annalise and Raphael in her story because I’m not ready to let them go just yet. Or Maybe they need a novella of their own 😉 
I loved, loved, loved, the story, the characters, the beautiful descriptions of Rome and the overall passion and intensity of our couple 
This is a total 5 star for me
