This week, my swoon is from The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black!

Leaning over, not speaking, he brought his mouth to hers. For a wild moment she wondered if wanted her. Her and not just this.

At first, the kiss seemed part of the night and the dancing, full of dreamy madness. Jack kissed her as though he only could reassure himself she was awake and okay so long as they were touching. He kissed as though he thought she'd turn to smoke the moment he stopped.

She rolled toward him, and his arm came around her, pressing her closer, his fingers against the small of her back. Everything felt liquid and slow. As her hands fumbled with his shirt. trying to get it up and over his broad shoulders, as she pressed her cheek against the smooth brown skin, and as he made a soft sound in the back of his throat that seemed to be his way of holding in check some other, less polite sound that Hazel desperately wanted to hear, she couldn't help thinking of how strange it was to be doing this with a friend.
