Swoon Thursdays (54)


The ladies at YA Bound have created a hot and fun new meme called SWOON #YABound. If you want to join in here's what you need to do.

All you need to do is pick up the book you are currently reading or just finished reading. Find what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding and your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering. Then shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag  #YABound, post in the comments, or grab the awesome button from YA Bound (above) share it on your blog!
I'm re-reading Half-Blood by Jennifer L Armentrout to get myself  back into the world of the Covenant before I read book three, Deity. I don't think I've used a Swoon from this book but I decided to go with a scene from Aiden's POV. Which is not in the book but an extra that can be found on Jennifer L Armentrout's website. Since this chapter is so steamy I had to go with two Swoons. 
"Our eyes locked. Her chest rose unsteadily against mine as she sucked in a breath I wanted to share. An unfamiliar thing happened. My heart stuttered and then skipped a beat. The room seemed to shift, and I pulled her closer, because she wasn’t close enough. Could never be close enough. My hand drifted from her hair, across the curve of her cheekbone. Gods, she was so beautiful. Pure temptation. My thumb smoothed over her lower lip, and I felt her answering shudder under my skin." SWOON #YABound
 
"And I stopped thinking. With a growl more animal than civilized, I moved toward her mouth with only one thing in mind. I kissed her. Savoring her mouth, soaking up her response, I was fueled by her desire for more. And though I needed more, in the back of my mind, I already knew that more could never be enough. That if I didn’t stop, I’d never be satisfied. Like a daimon after its first taste of aether, I’d just keep coming back and back. As I fitted her body to mine, the kiss deepened, shocked me to the core. Gods, I wanted this, as bad as that was, I wanted this. Sliding my hands down her shoulders, I followed the curve of her stomach, the subtle flare of hips. Before I knew it, I was taking her to the bedroom. Never breaking contact with her mouth… her body." SWOON #YABound
Hope you enjoyed my Swoons, I know I did. What made you Swoon this week?
