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 finished this book Monday night, but since I knew I was going out of town Wednesday, I went ahead and typed up my post ahead of time. So this week you get a swoon from Kady Cross's The Girl with the Iron Touch!
 
 
"When his lips touched hers Finley dropped the dressing gown. He kissed her like he thought he might never get another chance, setting her heart pounding at a terrible pace. His other arm went around her waist, pulling her against him. Her hands slid up his arms, curving over his hard biceps, over his shoulders and up his neck to tangle in the damp curls of his hair. Her heart slammed against her ribs while other parts of her tingled and came alive with trembling excitement."

 
 Sigh. Yeah, this book stepped up the romance BIG TIME! What made you guys swoon this week?!

  5. Loved that book! Another rare 5-star-rating from me. I didn't really liked the first one (low end of 3 stars), liked the second one (low end of 4 stars), but I REALLY liked this book. My review will be posted next week (ish) :D

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  10. Nice! I have seen this series - the last book being more eye grabbing, in my opinion. I wonder if I should start it. :)
