Isaac stares silently up at the sky for a long time before looking back down at me, and for a moment, he almost looks scared.
"I wished for..." he starts, but I cut him off before he can finish.
"Don’t tell me your wish or it won’t come true!"
He inches closer and smiles awkwardly before saying anything. Suddenly I realize just how quickly my heart is racing. Why does being around him do this to me? I... no, I can’t let myself think like that. I can’t let myself think about things that can never happen between us.
"It can’t come true unless I tell you," he whispers, and before I can say anything else, he kisses me.
My arms somehow find their way around him as we snuggle up together against the warmth of the chimney, and all my fears fall away. God, this is wonderful! I’ve never felt like this before, and as Isaac presses his lips to mine again, I feel a tear trickle down my cheek.

I let out a soft sigh as his lips touching mine, and suddenly he yanks me in close, spins me around, and pushes me back against the door with my hands pinned on either side of my head. My heartbeat races faster and faster as his lips crash into mine in a heady kiss, so perfect, so intoxicating that my legs start to shake.
Terrence releases my hands as he slowly trails his fingers down my arms, setting my skin on fire as he gently traces the curve of my neck, and I draw in a sharp, excited breath as he fumbles with the top button of my blouse. I can’t believe I’m letting him do this, but... but I want it. I want to feel his hands on my body, to feel his warmth and his strong arms around me.
"God, I need you right now, Irene," he whispers, his voice quiet but urgent and so filled with desire that it sends an icy-hot shiver down my spine.

This was such a beautiful story! Every scene Isaac and Nina was magical. I chose these two swoons, one sweet and one steamy because that pretty much sums up this book - the perfect balance!

So what's making you swoon this week?
