This week, my swoon is from Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas!
***Any time you see [redacted] is where I took out this gentleman's name. Mwahaha...***
So [redacted] brushed away her tears, lifted her chin, and kissed her.
The kiss obliterated her.
It was like coming home or being born or suddenly finding an entire half of herself that had been missing.
His lips were hot and soft against hers - still tentative, and after a moment, he pulled back far enough to look in her eyes. She trembled with the need to touch him everywhere at once, to feel him touching her everywhere at once. He would give up everything to go with her. She twined her arms around his neck, her mouth meeting his in a second kiss that knocked the world from under her.
She didn't know how long they stood on that roof, tangled up in each other, mouths and hands roving until she moaned and dragged him through the greenhouse, down the stairs, and into the carriage waiting outside.

Okay, while this scene sounds really romantic and swoony... this book was NOT. I didn't enjoy the romance in this book because Celaena is STUPID.
But whatever. Overall, minus the romance, the book was amazing :)
