Swoon Thursday (#3): Venom by Fiona Paul

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 Venom by Fiona Paul - which I am reading for the Venom Readalong!
 
Venom (Secrets of the Eternal Rose, #1)
 
The swoon:
 
She pressed her lips to his, surprised by her own bravery, emboldened by the way his body responded to hers. They fell back deeper into the boat, its creaky wooden sides offering privacy in the already dark night. He kissed her harder, his tongue exploring her lips and mouth in circles. The small boat rocked underneath her, swaying with the gentle current of the canal. The wweight of his chest pressed down on her ribcage, her hipbones pressed against his, even through the many layers of garments she wore.
 
- ARC, pages 238-239
 
 
I'M STOPPING THERE BECAUSE I'M NOT TELLING WHO THAT WAS! Unless you've already read the book, and then you know ;)
 
What made you swoon this week?
