Swoon Thursday (#43): Dangerous Depths by Karen Amanda Hooper

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 Dangerous Depths by Karen Amanda Hooper!


His fingertip landed just below my neck as he started writing a story as always. I said the words out loud while his hand scrolled down the length of my body. "Once upon a tide..." 

He had reached my stomach. I tried to breathe steadily, but he leaned down and kissed each of my hips, then his lips slowly trailed to my thigh. My hallmarks were swirling so fast I could feel my skin rippling, but then Treygan stopped and his fingers returned to my neck.

"Let's continue our story, shall we?"

A tortured grunt was all I could manage. He smirked, and then wrote down my body again. I tried focusing on the trails his finger made as he wrote letter after letter down to my toes, but it was a blur of tingling and desire. 

"You lost me," I muttered. "What did you write again?"

"I'll write it again."

As if that would help. He formed each letter slower, which only made my craving for him that much stronger. His smug face proved he was enjoying teasing me way too much. I pulled his down to me and kissed him. 

- eARC, 40%

  8. OMG, this is totally hot! I can so see why she'd lose all train of thought. This is going onto my tbr, because the pretty cover made me curious on the mermaid story. Thanks for stepping by and sharing!
