Welcome to Swoon Sunday where you get to meet some of our swoon-worthy heroes. Today we have a visit from Archer from I’m Not in the Band by Amber Garza!
Archer, why don’t you describe yourself for us.
I have dark hair, blue eyes, and I’m muscular.
Do you have a special skill?
I have mad rap skills. Ha!
What is your biggest dream/wish/desire?
What I want more than anything is to become a movie producer one day. I want to make something of myself without any help from my brother.
Boxers or briefs?
Froot Loops or Lucky Charms (or both)?
Early bird or night owl?
Chunky peanut butter or smooth?
What is your biggest pet peeve?
People who use me to get to my brother.
What kind of music do you listen to?
Liked this interview with Archer? Now check out a swoony excerpt between him and Kassidy:
His hands slide farther along my cheeks, his fingers slipping under my hair. Then his lips lightly brush mine. Once. Twice. Quickly, like a soft drumbeat. Reaching out, I grip him around the waist, afraid I might fall. Drawing back, he meets my gaze. My mouth feels dry, as if I’m eating a mouthful of cotton. My chest rises and falls with each breath, and I nervously lick my lips, anticipating his next move. When he brings his face toward mine again, I close my eyes and part my lips. This time his mouth presses down more firmly, his lips soft and warm.
At first I’m paying attention to every movement, trying to match it. But it doesn’t take long to lose myself. I’m weightless, no longer tethered to the ground. My toes skim the clouds, my fingertips brush the stars. The frigid air whisks over my skin, causing me to shiver. It’s a satisfying shiver, deep in my bones. When our lips detach, I blink repeatedly bringing myself back to earth.
I’ve never experienced a kiss like this before. It was amazing.
And I can’t wait to do it again.
About I’m Not in the Band:
I like Kassidy Milton. There, I said it. She’s funny, beautiful—even though she doesn’t know it—and my favorite kind of weird. But I can’t tell if she’s into me or just trying to get close to me for a chance with my famous twin brother instead. I mean, it has to be me. I am the better-looking one.
But Kassidy has some demons, and she’s not good at letting people in. That happens when you’ve been hurt by someone close to you. I can relate. Trust is a funny thing; it’s hard to gain but easy to lose. I might just learn that the hard way.
