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 Thursday comes from Inescapable by Amy A. Bartol. I'm extremely excited to be bringing this swoon to you today- I just finished reading this book on Tuesday and I'm already well into book two (This series is my new addiction....I'm not gonna lie, it's honestly even a struggle to be away from it long enough to write this post)! :P
I need to give a quick shout-out to Marilyn Phillips @ Marilyn's Mystery Blog! Not only does she regularly leave comments here at The Y.A. Bookworm Blogger, but if it wasn't for her hot Swoon Thursday post last week, I probably wouldn't have purchased this book (which would have been a complete shame because...this book is awesome-sauce!!) So THANK-YOU Marilyn- you guys should check out her book Mystery Falls (it too is absolutely amazing- my review will be up this weekend for the Mystery Fall blog tour :D)
"I have to go. I'll see you tomorrow at practise, okay?"
"Okay, I'll see you at practise," he says softly, and then does something that I would never expected if I'd lived a million years. Leaning across the seat, he touches my hair. With a curious smile, my eyebrow arches in question.
Reed's fingertips skim my cheek in a whisper-soft caress, eliciting an airy-sounding inhale from me that betrays the perfect danger of the moment. He begins leaning toward me slowly, almost as if he hopes I will have the strength to save us from what is about to happen. No such power exists within me, so I wait to feel his kiss. As Reed brushes his lips gently to mine, a flush of warmth filters through my senses. Closing my eyes, I savour the wistful sweetness of his lips while my heart beats ponderously in my chest. Feeling my fingertips resting against his cheek, I wonder briefly how they got there. That thought flees as I move closer to him, losing my way when heat sends me free falling into hidden fires.
Drawing back from me, Reed's eyes meet mine; his are sage green and at their centres, midnight. My fingertips feel cool against the warmth of his skin as they slip behind his neck. Leaning forward, i graze my lips over his again, and like a stone wall slowly battered by the elements, something collapses between us. He pulls me to him urgently, and then...hellfire. Every kiss I've ever had before this one was a dusty, broken toy in comparison. I crave him. I'm not the one who ends the kiss. I have no control over the fever that has overcome me. Reed gently, but insistently, ends our kiss.
Resting his forehead against mine, Reed murmurs, "Evie, we are in trouble...there is no doubt."
"Trouble, why?" I rasp with my arms wrapped securely around the back of his neck.
"Because I will never be able to stay away from you," he replies shamelessly, nuzzling my neck just below my ear.....
.....Seriously......how awesome is Reed?! *sighs* If you haven't read this book yet then I definitely recommend it to all of you bookworms looking for a devouring read for the weekend ahead! ....I'm going to go now so I can get back to book two, lol !
