Swoon #YABound

mm mm mm.. Nothing like a hot meme first thing in the morning.. How do you get in on the yumminess created by the lovely ladies over at YA Bound? Take a book you're reading or just recently finished and do tell what made you SWOON. You know, heart pounding, skin tingling, breathe taking, butterflies-wreaking-havoc-in-your-tummy moments.

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!

Mine is plucked from Susan Dennard's Something Strange and Deadly. Gotta love Daniel and his never-ending snarkiness ~ that, and there's no insta-love in sight. Great, believable, slow-growing romance...

As if scrutinizing the shape of my cheek, he leaned closer until I could feel his breath.

Then his lips touched my skin--only the slightest brush along my cheekbone.

My breath caught, and my heart with it. But I didn't pull away. I couldn't. I knew if I moved, if this moment ended, my chest would ache with hollowness forever.

He slowly drew back his hand. I twisted my face to his and before he could retreat, I reached out and pressed my good hand against his stomach.

He sucked in a breath, and I bit back my own gasp...

"Eleanor." His voice was so low, I could barely hear it. "Eleanor, we can't do this."

"Oh," I breathed, but I didn't move. Nor did he.

What's got you swooning??

Happy Reading Everyone :)
