Swoon Thursday #52
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.
It's been awhile since I've done a Swoon Thursday, which makes me sad because it's my favorite meme, so I am hitting you up with an extra swoony one today! It comes from Tessa Bailey's Unfixable! Which I loved, adored, and want to reread very badly.
"When I'm a few yards away, Shane turns. "Look, don't make a big thing out of-" He cuts himself off when he glimpses my expression. Then he drops the rag and meets me halfway. I'm caught up in his arms a second later, legs wrapped snugly around his waist. Shane grips my bottom with one big hand and buries the other in my hair, searching my eyes. I'm not ready to let him see everything, so I pull his head down to mine. And kiss him for all I'm worth.
I angle my mouth across his, encouraged by his ragged groan. When his teeth rake over my lower lip, my thighs tighten around his hips, and I deepen the kiss further. For the first time, I'm kissing him without a single reservation, and the effect of that freedom is devastating. Blood pounds in my temples, aches form in places I didn't know could ache from a kiss. The hand on my bottom is urging me closer, causing my control to desert me."
Holy hell, Shane Claymore ladies and gentlemen. Go get this book. You will NOT be disappointed. Easily one of my favorites this year.
