Swoon Thursday ~ 5/8/14

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!

My swooning is over Lucas Maxfield!

(Prequel for Landon & Easy from Lucas' POV) 

He was lost and alone. Then he found her.
And the future seemed more fragile than ever.

As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise — until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed.

All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy…

As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.,%201

I tossed the glasses I wore late at night, uncaring whether they hit the side table or flew across the room.  I ripped off my T-shirt and then slowed to remove hers, my hands shaking with a gentleness I had to force.  As I slid my hands to her sides, she huddled closer, slipped her arms around my neck and her hands into my hair.  I kissed the side of her mouth, her sigh containing the softest little moan, and I ducked below her chin to kiss and suck the fragile skin of her lovely throat -- the origin of the passionate sounds and garbled words she uttered as her head fell back.

I paid particular attention to the singular freckle that drove me insane -- it was like a tiny clue, put there for me to find -- the start her on a treasure map.  I lapped my tongue across it, and she pitched against me, hands gripping my hair.  Fantasies exploded in my mind, too good, too perfect.  I wanted her, like this--all of her.

Everything slowed. (Page 268)

*sigh* I know, I stopped too soon.  Really, you so need to read the WHOLE thing, the WHOLE book.  You need every single syllable of Lucas! Every single one.

What do you think?  So love this book, this boy.  Have a swoon for me?  Leave me a comment.
