Swoon Thursday #27

Swoon Thursday is a weekly event hosted by YA Bound.This is how it works:

From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. 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.

It's becoming a bit of a habit, but I'm swooning of two books again…I just can't help it, I've just been lucky enough to have read a lot of swoony books lately!!! (And I've already picked at least one for next week already hehe!)

This week, I’m SWOONING over:

“We don’t need to talk, if that’s not what you want to do.” His lips were at my neck, the stubble from his cheeks tickling my sensitive skin. 
I closed my eyes, savoring the feel of his skin against mine. I wanted to just let go and say those three little words to him. He could babble on with the most poetic of verses without even trying, and I, an aspiring writer, could barely string a sentence together in his presence. Instead I just moaned when he nipped at my earlobe. 
“What do you want, Red?” he whispered. 
“I don’t want anything right now but your lips on mine.” 
And he obliged. His lips quickly finding mine and his tongue diving behind them. I pulled him closer, wrapping my arms around his neck and feeling his warm body pressed against mine. His hands went from running through my hair, down my face, and finally resting at my sides where his fingers found the space that my shirt didn’t meet my jeans. He skimmed the bare skin, sending goose bumps wherever his fingers touched.
When his lips dropped to my neck, I gasped and could feel him smiling between kisses. “How’s this for studying?”

"Do you have any idea how beautiful you are?"
Her cheeks actually get pink and she smiles at me shyly. "I don't know. I don't think anyone's said that to me before."
"You steal my breath sometimes," I tell her.
Laying her head on my shoulder, she says softly, "You're too good to me, Flynn. I don't deserve it."
I reach my hand up and grab her hair, pulling back so her head raises up. I look at her somberly. "You deserve the world, Rowan. The entire fucking world should belong to you."
Her mouth opens like she's going to say something, then it snaps shut. Whatever was going to come out is locked away, but she speaks to me in another way. She lays her lips against mine, opening her mouth and I slip in. Our tongues touch each other with confidence, and I let myself get immersed in the feelings of desire and affection I have for her.
She pulls her tongue back, just enough so she can speak, but never letting her lips leave mine. "Touch me, Flynn."

Sawyer's Off series books are always filled with lots of swoons - it was super hard to choose one! But this scene starts out sweet and turns oh so sexy…it kinda got a little too R rated to continue it here, so you'll have to read the book to enjoy that rest of this scene ;)

So what's making you swoon this week?


  1. Love both those swoons. Would have liked to see the second one go a bit longer though. Oh well, two more books for my TBR list.
