It's my first swoon of the new year!! I realize it's been quite a long time, but I have been having difficulty getting books reading and finding something to swoon about. I would like to believe I am back on track.
Swoon Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by YA Bound
My swoon today comes from Getting a Life, Even if You're Dead by Beth Watson.
I'd never initiated a first kiss, ever.
A gentle, compassionate kiss quickly escalated to a passionate one. Pierrot slipped his arms around my waist, curling his fingers into the back of my T-shirt, molding me against him, as if he was never letting me go. I slid my hands up over his chest and laced them around the back of his neck. The kiss deepened, and a spearmint flavor filled my mouth. Pierrot's hands were all over me, like he wanted to touch every inch of me.
Needing to catch my breath, I drew back slightly and rested my forehead against his, staring into his brown eyes. Our lips just inches apart, I inhaled his warm breath, capturing it the moment he exhaled, sharing the same breath that had moments before filled his lungs, feeling more connected to a guy than ever. He traced a gentle finger down my cheek, and I let out a slight moan. Seriously. I moaned. That was the only sound I was capable of uttering. I was even more speechless than before the kiss. I'd never experienced a kiss, or emotions, like this before.
Happy Swoon Year!!
