This week, my swoon is from These Ruthless Deeds by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas!


"I was worried," he said, slowly pulling himself off the bed frame, leaning forward. His face was so close to mine in the quiet morning. My heart faltered once before catching a new rhythm, faster than before. Sebastian's dark hair had never looked so careless and my fingers itched to return to the inky strands. His eyes were the softest mossy green, and I was sure that all his usual awkward reserve had melted in this strange dawn. When I realized that his eyes were glued to my lips, I instinctively parted them, sucking in a fast breath.

Don't you dare kiss him, Evelyn.

He was so close I could have counted the strands of gold that gleamed in the green of his eyes. I could have shifted forward one breath and his lips would be on mine. I was dizzy, lost in the world that existed here between us.

- eARC, page 193.




Me thinks the lady doth protest too much. :P I adore Sebastian and Evelyn! Catch my review of this book tomorrow.
