Swoon Thursday is a cool (more like HOT) meme the girls over at YA Bound created :) 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 The Collector: A Dante Walker Novel by Victoria Scott. All I've got to say about this one is Dante is a character I hate to love...I'll explain this a little bit more when I put up my review ;P

A gasp escapes her throat as I race toward her. I tug her against me and smash my mouth over hers. I feel everything-- her hair between my fingers, her skin pressing against mine. And her lips. I feel those soft pink lips freeze for a moment beneath my kiss. And then I feel her relax, opening her mouth and mirroring my movements. She leans into me, twining her arms around my neck, pulling me so that there's nothing between us.
I grab her thighs and hoist her up, and she wraps her legs around me. Fumbling toward a tree, I press her back against it and push toward her, my hips locking against hers. An animalistic groan escapes my throat as I kiss her harder, deeper. I trail my lips down her neck and along her collarbone, and Charlie softly moans. Then I bury my head against her chest and take her in-- her smell, her chest rising and falling. The wild thumping of her heart....
Ohhh Dante...how you make me swoon with your bad ways ;) ! Have you guys read The Collector? What are your thoughts on both this week's swoon and the book? Be sure to let me know in the comments below! Keep Reading!
