Fourth times a charm! Oh wait, that's not how that phrase goes. Anyway time for Swoon Thursday number 4!
This meme is hosted by YA Bound and frankly, it's quite brilliant.
Since I'm still near the beginning of my current read I'm going to choose a passage from the book I last finished reading. Black City by Elizabeth Richards. So there were quite a few moments that made me swoon in Black City, but this one practically knocked me off of my feet! And yes I know I ended it on a cliff hanger, but if I continued it would be a spoiler for the book.
Shame squirms inside my gut, loathing how my body's responding to her.
A million reasons run through my head why I should push her away, but I don't.
Instead, I do the one thing I shouldn't: I reach out my hand and gently touch her face.
She lets out a soft, breathy moan as my fingertips explore the contours of her face.
In a weird way, this is the first time I've truly "seen" her; my fingertips chart a map of her features, committing every tiny detail to memory.
Desire and guilt wage a war inside me, and I'm torn between wanting her and my loyalty to my species.
She's a Sentry.
This is so wrong!
And yet I'm unable to control myself.
My fingers brush over her smooth skin, running past the dimple on her left cheek before find the soft fullness of her lips.
"Ash," she sighs, tilting her head up.
Her lips touch mine.
