Swoon Thursday (#44): Control by Lydia Kang

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

This week, my swoon is from Control by Lydia Kang!


"Don't leave." His hand passes within an inch of my face to shut the door once and for all, and then slips to my cheek. My skin burns with electricity that even Micah couldn't generate. Only this time, there are no magic tricks involved.

I know we;re on the knifes edge of something and nothing, but nothing is all I've ever had. I don't know what to do. So I shut my eyes and turn away. Cy catches my arm to spin me around. Before I can inhale with surprise, his lips are on mine.

His mouth is warm and strong, and it sends waves of weakness down my spine. He breaks the kiss and I sway, unsure if my legs are still working.

"Don't leave," he repeats in a whisper.

I take a few breaths and hold on to the wall. I nod, the tiniest movement of my head, and just like that, I'm over the knife's edge and drowning in a sea of something. Cy encircles my waist with his arm and tilts his head down to find my lips again. We bump against the wall and there's no Micah, no horrors, no parental disappointments, nothing but this fire in my toes and knees and every inch of skin I possess.

I pull him closer, as if I could make his very molecules lock with mine and never let go.

Cy scoops me up and carries me over to his bed as if I weighed less than an ounce. We melt into the softness of his sheets, and the delicious weight of his body pins me to the bed.

- ARC, pages 252-253
