Swoon Thursday #4

By 7:30 AM

 
Swoon Thursday is a weekly event hosted by YA Bound


Here's what you do:

From the book you're currently reading, or one you just finished, tell me what made you swoon. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering. Shout it out on twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments or grab the button above and share it on your blog.

I just finished "Shift", which is the second book in the Shade series by Jeri-Smith Ready, so my swoon this week comes from it!

The first two come from the infamous river scene.

Then he looked up at me and tugged the edge of the towel. I took the hint and lay down, watching him watching me. He knelt and slowly ran his hand down my arm, his lids heavy and his lips parted. "Aura... where can I touch you?"

"Anywhere."

His hand left my arm and drifted to the rise of my hip bone. "And where can I kiss you?"
I took a deep breath, long past ready for the future. "Everywhere."


*****

"And then we meet in bed, under the thickest, softest quilt." His touch rounded the angle of my elbow. "I kiss you and touch you all over, and you do the same to me, until we're both too warm for the quilt, and for whatever we were wearing when we crawled under it."

I didn't dare blink. "And then what?"

The tips of his fingers pressed against mine, firm and smooth. "And then... and only then... will you know how much I love you."

And finally:

"I don't understand you and me. I don't know if we're a miracle or a disaster. I just know I want to be with you."- Aura

    1. LOL. I love looking at covers too! You had some seriously awesome swoons on your website! I need to download Firefox, since my version of IE isn't updated for the Disqus comments, so I didn't get a chance to post over on your blog!
