It's that time again! Trish and I created a HOT meme over at YA Bound, and if you're new to the game, here's how to join in the fun:
From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell me 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!
We want to know :-)
I have been reading all kinds of swoony books lately, so I almost chose another one this week, knowing probably everyone else on this great big planet of ours has already read (and swooned to) Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout. But then I figured, what the hey. There's a shot some of you may not have read it yet--in which case, you must--and for those of you who have, you can remember and swoon again =) First, the appropriate Twitter quote:
Hot tingles spread through me as his lips moved against my ear. "You should tell me to stop." I didn't say a word.-Half-Blood SWOON #YABound
And now, the longer, steamier, extended version:
Hot tingles spread through me as his lips moved against my ear. "You should tell me to stop." I didn't say a word. Aiden made a deep sound in his throat. His hand slid up my back, leaving a trail of fire in its wake, and his lips moved across my cheek, stopping to hover above mine. I forgot how to breathe, and most importantly, how to think. He moved, ever so slightly, and his lips brushed across mine once, and then twice. It was such a soft, beautiful kiss, but when the kiss deepened, it wasn't a shy one. This was one of dangerously pent-up need, a desire that'd been denied far too long.
