Hey, y'all! Ashley here. This week's title comes from Heather's swoon. Sometimes, you just gotta ask, and you shall receive. :)
Happy Thursday, y'all!
HEATHER: Swooning over Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins:
We’re not watching the boats. His hand is burning, but he doesn’t let go. And then— he scoots closer. Just barely. I glance down and see the back of his shirt has crawled up, exposing a slice of his back. His skin is smooth and pale. It’s the sexiest thing I have ever seen. He shifts again, and my body answers with the same. We’re arm against arm, leg against leg. His hand crushes mine, willing me to look at him. I do. Étienne’s dark eyes search mine. “What are we doing?” His voice is strained. He’s so beautiful, so perfect. I’m dizzy. My heart pounds, my pulse races. I tilt my face toward his, and he answers with an identical slow tilt toward mine. He closes his eyes. Our lips brush lightly. “If you ask me to kiss you, I will,” he says. His fingers stroke the inside of my wrists, and I burst into flames. “Kiss me,” I say.
ASHLEY: Swooning over Romily Bernard's REMEMBER ME:
I lift my face for a kiss and he leans down, grabbing me with both hands. I hook my fingers into his belt loops and angle us closer.It makes him kiss me harder. He feels so good. Perfect even.His mouth moves over mine, urging me on, and I can feel that familiar hunger crawling through me, threatening to take me apart as his lips trail across my lower lip, along my jaw, and find that impossibly sensitive spot on my neck.
JESSICA: Swooning over STAY WITH ME by J. Lynn:(Jess note: This book is freaking AMAZING. And I am so in love with Jax.)
Totally unfazed, he moved his thumb in a slow circle over the inside of my elbow. That tiny, almost unconscious touch sent a shock wave of sensation through my system. One second I was ready to knee him in the nuts and the next I was thinking of other more pleasant things involving said nuts."What are you doing?" I asked again, my pulse racing and even pounding.
His chest expanded, brushing mine, and my toes curled in response. "Doing something better than sleeping."That really wasn't an answer.Jax dipped his head and the tip of his nose grazed my right cheek. "I like you."My heart stopped flouncing and did a twirl on one toe. "What?""I like you," he repeated, voice dripping to a whisper that glided over my skin.
NEREYDA: Swooning (TWICE!) over THE HOOKUP by Kristen Callahan:
"I want to kiss you, Anna."
My breath hitches. I'm all the way under the covers now, in a dark heated world. And there's nothing but his voice. "I think about it all the time. How soft your lips will be? What will they taste like? Will you make those sweet little noises like you do when we make love?"and:“Why won’t you let me kiss you, Anna?”
I can’t breathe.
“It’s too much,” I rasp.
“Not when I want everything.” He says it so deep and strong, a staking of a claim. “And I want everything with you, Anna.”
KELLY: Swooning over PRIVATE INTERNSHIP by Kitsy Clare:
He grabs a fistful of my hair in each hand and pulls me in. Kisses me hard. His tongue slides suggestively over my lips, and then teases them open.
KELSEY: Swooning over Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout:
Daemon kissed me.
There was nothing soft or tentative about it. His mouth was pressed against mine, boldly parting my lips, and he kissed like he was starving. The rush of sensation nearly took my legs out from underneath me. My stomach dipped as a deep sound rumbled from his throat, shaking through me.
She grabs my hand and I give her the other one so that both our hands are linked together. I'm kneeling between her legs, staring down into those chocolate eyes that hold me by the balls and could make me do practically anything right now.
