Swoon Thursday (#19): Golden by Jessi Kirby

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 Golden by Jessi Kirby!


"His eyes run over mine, and for the second time tonight, everything speeds up and slows down in the space of a few second. He steps closer. Brings both his hands to my cheeks. Pulls my into him gently. Speaks words I barely hear.

'That it's taken me so long to - '

His lips on mine finish the rest with a kiss that's light and soft, almost a question. Warmth spreads out in me, and I want to answer him and sink into this kiss, and this feeling. I want to forget about everything that Julianna said and lose myself in this moment, with the rain falling soft and the smell of the wet pavement rising all around us, and his hands on my face like it's where they belong. I want to believe in this moment so much."

Oh, what the heck. How about another?

"And then the door opens, and Trevor's right there looking surprised and confused, and I feel the same way, but I step into him before he can say anything

I bring my lips to his fully, intentionally, their cold meeting his heat, in a kiss meant to tell him all the things I've been too afraid to say until right now. It takes him a second to catch up, but when he does his hands come to my face, then slide back to my hair, pulling me closer as he kisses me deeper, and all the times I've imagined this happening never came close to what I feel right now. I sink into it fully, completely, letting everything fall away so all that's left is this. A moment like a poem.

I think these two are the only swoons of the entire book - which is why I put both of them in there. They come late, but I love them both. The last especially, though.

I love this book! I highly encourage everyone who reads this post to grab this book from a bookstore or online or a library or SOMETHING. My review will be up sometime in the next two weeks!

  10. There must be a lot of resisting giving into passion throughout the novel, if these two swoons come near the end. The build-up must be insane!

    Even if the clothes are staying on, things are heating up with

    Enjoy, ladies!
