Swoon Thursday ~ 11/7/13

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!

Ready for this??

Would you wait?

College student, Hope Camden, is relentlessly serious, awkwardly shy and in complete need of taking a walk on the wilder side. At least, that’s what her sister tells her when she drags her off for an impromptu Christmas getaway in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Hope’s plans to keep her nose in a book the entire vacation are thwarted when she meets Jack Freeman, the gorgeous and enigmatic Army helicopter pilot staying at the same resort. What was supposed to be a quiet Christmas holiday turns into a life changing event for Hope and Jack. The only problem? Jack is headed off to war, and there is no guarantee he will come back.

Even though the kiss is soft and sweet, I still feel a warmth spreading through my body.  It causes me to want experience Jack on the next level.  Tentatively, my tongue pushes forward into his mouth and at first he stills.  I can feel his fingers flex into my lower back, and I push my tongue in just a little farther, taking a swipe at his.  He answers me with a groan and then he's gripping my head, holding me in place so his tongue can take charge.  And I let him.  Letting go, for once in my life, I let Jack have his way with my mouth.  He deepens the kiss and I can't help the sigh that escapes me. (Kindle location 307)

Yeah, I'm liking Jack... a lot!  What about you?  Have a swoon for me?  Leave me a comment.
