Swoon Thursday ~ 10/24/13

The fabulous girls over at YA Bound created this super HOT meme.  Here's how it works.

From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us 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 adorable button above and share it on your blog! I want to know & so do the chicks at YABound!

I'm not your typical girl. I've been running away from the memories that haunt me for so long that depression has become my only comfort. I was content in the darkness...until Wes Michals offered to be my light.

I didn't know that time wasn't my ally -- that every second that ticked past was one step closer to the end of something that was beginning to mean the end of myself. He tried to warn me. He promised me all he was able to offer--each moment as it came--but it would never be enough.

Sometimes when you think it's the end, it's only the beginning. Wes thought he could save me, but in giving me everything, he ruined me. Because after one kiss, one touch, I couldn't--I wouldn't ever be the same.

And from that moment on, his heartbeat became my own.

I'm going to kiss you so hard that you forget everything but my lips pressed against yours."  I brushed some her lush read hear away from her face and tapped my fingertips against her jaw as they ran up the side of her cheek and lightly tugged her head forward.  

Her lower lip trembled.

"I'm going to make is so hard for you to forget this first kiss that you don't want anyone else kissing you ever again..." (Kindle Location 1373)

That's Wes. Yeah, he's yummy that way.  I will admit that I wasn't prepared for this emotional story!  Review soon.

What about you?  Swoon this week?  Leave me a comment.
