Swoon Thursday ~ 8/2/12

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!

This week's choice is The Wild Ones by M. Leighton.  Yeah, it was my teaser this week and I will have an excerpt for you guys tomorrow!! This book is so yummy, it needs more blog posts then the average book. :D

I take a step closer. She doesn't move away. "There is one thing I should've told you last night," I say, taking one more step toward her. I reach out and loop one long fiery curl around my finger and bring it to my mouth. It feels like silk and smells like strawberries.

"What's that?" she asks, her voice a little breathless.
"I don't mind a little competition."
"You don't?"
"No, but I hate to lose."
"Do you lose often?"

I lean down, my face only inches away from hers. I watch those incredible eyes as they flit between my mouth and my eyes over and over again.

"Never," I whisper.

And then I press my lips to hers. They're soft and warm and just as lush as they look. I keep expecting her to pull away, but she doesn't.

Deciding to make the most of my one shot, I slide my fingers into her heavy hair and tilt her head to the side. Her lips part and I slip my tongue right between them. (kindle location 432 of 4896)
Yeah, no twitter version this week. Cannot break up that perfection!
