Swoon Thursday (#147): The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

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 Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth!


His kiss was just like him: considerate, gentlemanly, sweet. It frustrated the hell out of me. After so much time spent keeping him - keeping all guys, all people - at a safe distance, I was finally ready to let one of them in. I wanted more than a polite kiss.

I made my lips softer but kissed him harder. He responded, arms wrapping me, fingers burrowing into my hair. A sublime sense of vertigo, a magnetic gravity overcame me. I was falling and standing at the same time. Our kiss became less considerate, more impatient and eager, and there it was: the ferocity under the sweetness. The rogue under the clean-cut boy next door. 

- ARC, page 39




This book took me by surprise - I really enjoyed it, despite not knowing much about it specifically. A really great standalone!
