Swoon Thursday (#1): When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle

Swoon Thursday is a hot meme hosted by the fabulous ladies at YA Bound!

 
- 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
- Try to make the swoon excerpt 140 characters (or less), if you are going to tweet about it. Use the hashtag #YABOUND when tweeting
 
 
This week, my swoon is from When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle. I read it in the last week of 2012, but I love some of the swoons in this book. Read on!
 
When You Were Mine
 
"He leans in slowly. So slowly it feels like we're in slow motion. And then his lips are on mine. They are so soft and warm, and it's not until he pulls back gently that I realize how much I've wanted him to kiss me. How it's really the only thing I've wanted... And then he's kissing me again, and it feels so good to be close to him, his hands on my back, his lips on mine, that I can't believe there was a time before we were doing this at all".
