Swoon Thursday (#49): Elusion by Claudia Gabel and Cheryl Klam

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 Elusion by Claudia Gabel and Cheryl Klam!


[Redacted]'s grip on my hips becomes tighter, hungrier, and in seconds almost every part of me is pressed up against him. Our world is beginning to fall away behind the veil of Elusion's white light. The stalagmites, the icicles, the snow, the frozen firewall that we came here to find are fading away, and soon we will too.

"Like this," he says, pressing his lips to mine. I clasp my hands tightly behind his back, unable to breathe, unable to think. It's as though I'm being shaken to my very core. I've never felt like this about anyone before.

But even with my eyes closed, I can tell the brightness is about to swallow us whole and take us back into the real world. 

I pull him tighter, willing the light away. I'm not ready to leave.

He's kissing me harder now, his strong arms wrapped so tightly around my waist he's practically lifting me off the ground.

- ARC, pages 205-206
