Swoon Thursday (#93): This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

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 This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner!

When I lift my eyes again, Flynn is no more than a silhouette. He moves toward me, taking hold of my arm and pulling me in against him. He doesn't speak. Our brief time together, the extraordinary circumstances that made allies - there aren't any words to give it shape. He could tell me that he loves me, but he doesn't know me the way a lover would; he knows the shape of me, though, the curve of my heart, as I know his. He could tell me the doesn't want to lose me, but we're both already lost, and only the tether between us keeps us from drifting out into the black.

I hear him draw a quick, shaking breath, and then his mouth finds mine. His kiss is fierce, his fingers splaying across my back, pressing me close. His lips this time ask for nothing, no demand for fire or for possession, nothing like the way he tasted in the back room of Molly's, turning my bones to ash. He's just kissing me, holding me, searing me into his memory. I lean into him, making his arms tighten around me in response, and we stand there, the water quiet around our ankles, as though all of Avon is holding its breath.

When we let each other go, we don't speak.

I read this one back in June, but I was sure to save a swoon to share with you all! I didn't post my review until this past Monday :)
