Swoon Thursday 6/7/12

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!

For this weeks swoon, I give you Lucas from Easy by Tammara Webber

Here's the twitter version.

"...But I do, absolutely, want to kiss you right now.  Badly."

Here's the longer bloggy version.

"...But I do, absolutely, want to kiss you right now.  Badly."  He trailed his finger over my jaw and down my throat, and then into his lap.  

I started at him.  Finally comprehending that he was waiting for a response, I said, "okay."

He dropped the pad onto the floor and the pencil followed, his stare never unlocking from mine.  As he leaned over me, I felt a heightened awareness of every part of my body that touched a part of him -- the edge of his hip pressed to mine, his chest sliding against mine, his fingers tracing from wrists to forearms and then framing my face.  He held me in place, lips near my ear.  When he kissed the sensitive spot, my breath shuddered. "You're so beautiful," he whispered, moving his mouth to mine. Kindle location 1129

So I read this book in an evening.  Lucas is yummy and tortured, a scorching HOTT combination.

Let me know what you think of my swoon & what your swoon this week was in the comments.
