Swoon Thursday (#62): The Last Best Kiss by Claire LaZebnik

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 The Last Best Kiss by Claire LaZebnik!


We said good-bye at the front door, and he hesitated, then abruptly leaned toward me. He had been so quiet since our conversation that, when I titled my face up to his, I expected a quick, dismissive peck. Instead his arms went around me and tightened heard as his lips crushed mine in a way that was hungrier and more demanding - and more wonderful - than any kiss we'd had before. I was glad his arms were pinning me against him, because it felt like my legs were dissolving underneath me.

I know, I know, two YA contemporary novels in a row, and I enjoyed them both immensely. This is coming from the girl that usually really dislikes contemporary novels O_O

  3. Over the past year I've been reading more and more contemporary. I like to mix it up with my paranormal reads.
    Sweet swoon. I'm glad she got more than a peck.

    1. I'm the opposite - I'm trying to mix in contemporary with my fantasy/science fiction/paranormal reads ^_^

  4. Awww that was so sweet! Love it! And I love the last line about dissolving legs.... Idk why but I always like when an author describes a kiss making legs go weak, or dissolving, or jelly or well you get where I'm going haha. Great swoon!
