This is our first time participating in Swoon Thursday and we're all so excited to add this to our weekly memes. I swoon, a lot while reading books so to be able to share my swoon moments is very exciting.
This meme is hosted by YA Bound and frankly, it's quite brilliant.
I am choosing not the last book I read, but the book before as I didn't find too many swoon moments in the past two books I've read so I'm choosing Doomed by Tracy Deebs. There was one moment and man, I swooned. (It is kind of spoiler-ish, so if you intend to read the book please wait to swoon until after you've read it)
Theo laughs a little, and then he's kissing me, really kissing me, his tongue sliding against mine as rockets- forget the fireworks-launch all around us.
I laugh, too, even as I draw him deeper. He tastes like spicy cinnamon and smooth, sweet caramel. He tastes like hope, which I need more now than I ever have before.
We're both breathing hard and he starts to pull away, but I stand on my tiptoes, yank his mouth back to mine. I'm not giving this up-not giving him up-at least, not yet. I want to hold him to me a little longer, to take his light inside me until it burns so brightly that nothing diminishes it, not even this nightmare we're both locked into.
It's Theo's turn to gasp, and then he's kissing me everywhere-his lips traveling over my cheek to my the ticklish spot behind my ear.
Down my neck to the hollow of my throat.
Across my eyes to my temples and back over my jaw to my lips again.
