Swoon Thursday {3}

Swoon Thursday is a  cool (more like HOT) meme the girls over at YA Boundcreated :) 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! We want to know :-)

This week's Swoon comes from Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins. I had to choose a book I read a few weeks ago for two reasons. One, I've only just started reading The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa so it hasn't reached its "Swoon Potential" yet. And secondly, my copy of Onyx STILL hasn't arrived *throws tantrum*  So although I hinted at that being the Swoon for this week.....I think I may have jinxed it :'(  

“Wait,” Kaidan called from behind me. I squeezed my eyes shut for a second, but kept walking. Then I felt his hand around my 
wrist, spinning me in a half circle and pulling me to his chest. His face was so close. He reached down and cupped my face with one
woolly hand, and wiped the top corner of my lip hard with his thumb. I flinched back. 
“What are you doing?” 
“I...” He appeared to have no idea himself. “I wanted to see your freckle.” 
A vulnerable tenderness flashed across his face, more painful to see than the coldness. It took every ounce of strength I had not to 
beg for one last kiss. As fast as his expression had softened, it was back to stone again. 
“What do you want from me, Kai?” 
“For starters?” His voice lowered to sexy, dangerous depths. “I want to introduce myself to every freckle on your body.” 

Did you hear that thud? *looks around* Oh wait, that was me, FAINTING from that swoon perfection! If you haven't read Sweet Evil yet then check out my review here, and be prepared to be fanning yourself the entire time ;) See you next Thursday!

Your Y.A. Bookworm,

  1. Kind of makes me wish I had more freckles...

  2. I'm reading Pushing the Limits. Noah: definitely swoon-worthy. :D

    1. Really?! That's awesome- I have it on my bookshelf now and it's waiting to be swooned over!

  3. Now I need this! And I just ordered other books! Damn it. :(

    1. I feel your pain...I can't even begin to tell you how many times that has happened to me :'(
