Swoon Thursday (#53): Landry Park by Bethany Hagen

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 Landry Park by Bethany Hagen!


"I want to kiss you," he said, his mouth very close to mine now. 

That white fire was dancing from his hair to my hands to my chest to my stomach to my lips -

"I've wanted you to kiss me again for a long time," I whispered.

"Then I shall." And he did. His lips were on mine, warm and spicy and smoky. Something needy and hot pulled at my stomach, and I pulled him closer, kissed him harder, breathed him in deeper and deeper until I saw starts and static at the edges of my eyes.

His hands slid under my coat, and his lips found my neck and and my hair, and now there were galaxies, a million infinitesimal stars pricking at my eyelids.
