Swoon Thursday ~ 9/20/12

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!

My swoon this week comes from the very fabulous Tegan from Measuring Up by Nyrae Dawn.

I can't help it, I lick my lips.

Tegan's face is slowly, way too slowly coming toward mine. "This time,  I'm really going to kiss you so if you don't want me to, you better stop me now."

"Stop?  You must be crazy."

"That's even better than your last compliment."

Oh my God.  Did I say that out loud? And then it doesn't matter because his lips are on mine.

They're just as soft as they look, but strong too.  Or maybe the kiss is just strong, eager, because it's all I feel or know.  It's like I'm drowning in him.

When his tongue comes out and teases the seam of my lips, I'm done for.  Sunken like a ship to the bottom of the ocean.  It's weird how I know what to do, like I've done this so many times before.  My mouth opens, our tongues meeting, first tentatively and then with the eager need again.  I taste the mint.  Smell the soap and ocean.  Shiver when the hand in my hair pulls me closer to him.

Oh I love Tegan.  He has swoon down!  What about you?  Any swoons this week?  Leave me a comment.


  1. I'm not familiar with this book, but I do agree, Tegan does seem to have the swoon thing down pat. Thanks for sharing.
    My swoon for this week can be found @ Marilyn's Mystery Blog

  2. Everytime you post something about this book it moves up on my list. Very swoon worthy. I am liking Teagan more and more.
