This week, my swoon is from The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron!


I have no idea how to kiss someone. I lean down, and very gently touch my lip to his. I don't want to drown him. He is floating so still now, eyes closed, bobbing just a little in the waves from the waterfall. I bring one of my hands out of the water, put my palm on his chest like I did before, run my hand over the skin that is now water-slicked, up to his neck, thumb across his jaw to the back of his head. I hear his intake of breath, I lean down again, put my mouth on his.

This time he brings an arm up to hold me there, goes more vertical in the water while he pulls me in. I may not know how to kiss someone, but Gray does. His lips are soft and his mouth is warm, one hand keeping us afloat, the other twisted into my hair. I didn't know I could feel so sought after. Needed. He tugs on my hair to tilt up my chin, kisses my neck down to where the water meets my shoulder. I cradle his face and he kisses my mouth again, soft and then hard, and I hold his head, do not let him stop. I'm not sure that we can stop until he breaks from lips and puts his forehead on mine. We breathe each other's air.

- ARC, pages 186-187
