Swoon Thursday ~ 3/5/15

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!

“She’s beauty for my ashes. And I’m hope for her heartache.”—Cole Danzer.

I don’t know what makes a great love story. Is it that instant attraction when boy meets girl? The passionate kisses and the fairy-tale ending? Or is it a lifetime of tragedy, paid in advance, for a few stolen moments of pure bliss? The pain and the suffering that, in the end, you can say are worth it for having found the missing piece of your soul?

The answer is: I don’t know. I don’t know what makes a great love story. I only know what makes my love story. I only know that finding Cole when I did, when Emmy and I were running from a nightmare, was the only thing that saved me. That saved us. He was more broken than I was, but somehow we took each other’s shattered pieces and made a whole. If that is what makes a great love story, if that is what makes an epic romance, then mine…ours is the greatest of them all.

His lips.  I knew they'd taste like heaven.  And they do.  They're the perfect mixture of firm and soft, and they move over mine with a power I always knew him capable of.  It prowls in him, just beneath the surface, like a caged animal.  Right now, the animal is barely contained.  I feel it in the way his lips urge mine apart, in the way his tongue tangles and dominates mine, sending shockwaves of thrill all the way through to my core.  I feel it in the way his hands threads into my hair to hold me still for his plundering.  He's capturing me.  And I'm captured.  He wants me.  (Kindle location 945)

I just got this book.  Of course, I couldn't resist it.  I devoured it.  Review soon.  I adore this one. 

What do you think?  Have a swoon for us?  Leave us a comment.
