Swoon Thursday (#57): Sekret by Lindsay Smith

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 Sekret by Lindsay Smith!


"Perhaps not everything." I circle my arms around his waist. I'm hungry for escape. For freedom. For the music that swells between us. "I can think of a few thoughts to fill my head with."

I kiss him fiercely, my gloved hands gripping clumsily at his sides and his fingertips cradling my jaw. His thumbs trace my cheekbones as his mouth slips open and absorbs mine. We part to gasp for humid breaths that cling to our skin, shielding us from the sapping cold. Our eyes lock for a second before Valentin's lips inch up my cheek, to my earlobe, kissing it faintly. "Yulia," he whispers, savoring the vowels. "I'd follow you anywhere."

  4. Haha thanks for sharing this swoon! I ended up DNFing this one (not because there was anything wrong with the story, but just because historical fiction is a really touchy genre for me) so now I know who the love interest is, which is a plus!

    1. Ahhh, yes, you and historical fiction, I remember. Well, I'm sorry to have sort of spoiled that for you, but if you end up finishing this one (I really hope you do), then you might enjoy the romance, at the very least!
