Swoon Thursday

Swoon Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by

Here's how it works:
From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.

This week's Swoon for me is from Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout, Book 2 of the Lux series. There were so many swoon worthy moments in this book that I had a hard time picking out just one, but I could only pick one for the week, so here it is.

Closing my eyes, I brushed my lips over his.
"Kitten," he growled roughly.
I kissed him softly, sliding my hands into his silky locks, letting the pieces slide through my fingers.  I tasted in him my own rising desire, my own need and heartache. Thrilling. Frightening. I pulled back.
"Kitten," he said again, voice strained. "You don't get to do that and then stop. That's not how it works."
I stared at him, my breath stalling in my lungs.
"Not when you're mine." Daemon backed us up and slid down the wall, pulling me onto his lap so I was straddling him. "And you're mine."
I placed my hands on his shoulders as he brought my mouth to his. This kiss was lazy, exploratory...and sensual. For once, I wasn't fighting the depth of my response. I welcomed it, thrived in the warmth rippling through me. I deepened the kiss. He made a sound in the back of his throat, and his arms wrapped around me, pinning me to him.
My fingers found the strands of hair curling at the back of his neck and dug in. I couldn't get enough of him - never could. I couldn't remember feeling this way about anyone else. I couldn't remember being kissed like this by anyone else. I'm not sure how long we kissed, but it seemed like forever, and at the same time, it wasn't long enough.

  5. Awesome Choice!! Any swoon with Daemon is going to be crazy hot.
    Thanks for dropping by my swoon.

    1. Ah yes, Daemon is definitely swoon worthy. However, it is possible Aiden is going to give him a run for his money. I just started reading Half-Blood, so I have to keep my eye open for any possible swoonage.
      Thanks for popping in!
