Swoon Thursday (#189): Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosamund Hodge


- 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 Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosamund Hodge!


It's barely a kiss that she presses to his lips, the moment is so soft and shy. It's barely a kiss that he presses back. But then she kisses him again, and again, and she knows this: the shape of his mouth, the push of his breath. She knows the way his hands shift across her back, cup her shoulder blades, and dig in.

She is not afraid anymore. 



Catch my review tomorrow (hopefully)! I haven't finished yet, but I can already feel the ending creeping up on me. This is a Romeo and Juliet retelling!

  4. I love this little swoon worthy excerpt! I'm a big fan of a HEA so I'm not sure I'd like this one being it's a Romeo & Juliet retelling. I'll be anxiously awaiting your review. :)
    Have a great day!

    1. There is a book two though! I have a feeling that this book will end... roughly. But there is another book to follow, so I'm crossing my fingers for better things. ;) Thank you!

    1. Her first book was SO good! Smart move in not reading Crimson Bound (blech). I hope you like this one, Carina!
