Swoon Thursday (#47): Avalon by Mindee Arnett

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 Avalon by Mindee Arnett!


Jeth's heartbeat doubled in alarm. This isn't going to work.

But a second later, she began to kiss him back. His lips slid open against his, and he breathed her in, savoring the sweet scent and taste of her. Her body softened as she wrapped her arms around his waist. A sudden swell of desire, stronger than any he remembered, rose up in Jeth, muddling his thoughts. He dropped his hands from [redacted]'s face and gripped her hips, pulling her even closer. She leaned into him in response, head tilting farther back.

- ARC, page 340

I took her name out, just in case someone here was actually going to read this one soon. It's good to keep some things a surprise ;)

But anyway, I loved this one!

  8. Why does he think it is not going to work? I love Mindee Arnett's other series a lot so I am probably going to have to add this one to the tbr pile.
