Swoon Thursday (#204): By Your Side by Kasie West


- 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 By Your Side by Kasie West!


"We made a rule," I whispered.

"Unlike you, I don't follow rules." He didn't give me a chance to respond. His lips met mine and stole my willpower. I pressed closer to him. I tried to move my right hand to his hair but the seat-belt prevented me from getting closer. I searched blindly for the release button, not willing to separate myself from him to find it. He was faster. He unlatched my belt then pulled me closer.

My hands found his hair, his neck, his shoulders. His hands found my lips, lifting and sliding me across the center console and onto his lap. There wasn't enough room between him and the steering wheel but that didn't stop me. 

- ARC, page 277



I liked this one! Perhaps not quite as much as I liked her previous books, but this one was really enjoyable and definitely worth the read. =)

    1. That's okay! YA contemporary isn't usually for me, but I love West's books. =)
