This week's Swoon Thursday comes from Temptation by Karen Ann Hopkins. I started reading this book a couple days ago and have been really liking it! It's a really unique story that I can't wait to talk to you guys about!
Add To GoodreadsUnable to resist the temptation, and careful not to startle Rose, I slipped my hand over and took hers between both of mine. She tensed at first and then relaxed when I started trailing my finger over the inside of her wrist softly.
Just touching her like that, with my brother and uncle only inches away, gave me a quiet thrill. She responded to my hands by sliding closer to me until our sides were pressing into each other from shoulder to foot. It felt incredibly right, sitting beside her, touching her skin and feeling her softness. And the fact that she was English didn't matter at all right then. I was beginning to think that she already belonged to me. While I sat there in the dark, my body was getting fired up , keeping me fully awake the entire drive. Rose let me know she wasn't sleepy either when she took her free hand and began touching my arm in the same way I was touching her. That sent a bolt of pleasure rippling through me. My brain started to cloud over with recklessness and I boldly leaned deeper into her, not caring about Jacob or Uncle. I guessed she was feeling the same desire that was igniting my body when her warm fingers caressed my arms lightly at first, then started to press harder-- nearly pushing me over the edge. We touched each other like that, secretly in the darkness for the entire trip, until I felt certain that I knew her hands and arms as well as my own.
I just love how this scene is only describing a simple touch, but yet it's so swoony! Have you read Temptation? What did you think about this week's swoon? Be sure to let me know in the comments below! Keep Reading!
