This snippet comes from Sicario, book 2 in my World's End series. The POV is Lexan's and the scene is self-explanatory. Something bad is coming.
We both shifted up into the bed fully clothed. As I placed my head on the pillow, Enzo switched off the light, rolled over and put his arm over me. Sighing, I relaxed a little as I felt him close. The need for him still shimmered in my body, but the need for survival superseded the need for sex.
Neither of us spoke and neither of us slept for an hour.
“You can sleep,” I said. “I’ll take the first watch and wake you in two hours.”
“I’m not sure I can sleep,” he said.
“Try. You need the rest.” I turned around to face him. “I’ll keep you safe.”
