This week, my swoon is from Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh!
Okami rolled onto his back, positioning her above him. He braced her chin in one hand, his lips traveling don her neck. To her bared shoulder. Back up to her ear.
The rain battered down around her. Her heart slammed against her chest. Mariko finally closed her eyes, no longer caring about anything else but the feel of him. His hands at her back. His kisses across her skin. The stars could fall - the moon could crash from the heavens - and Mariko would not care.
When Okami broke away, his breath spilled from his lips in jagged slivers.
"Don't stop," she said without thinking.
His response was a wicked smile. Wordlessly, Okami rolled again, pinning her beneath his mouth, covering her with his body. He slid lower. Watched her face as he blew a cool stream across her bare stomach. A thread of molten amber raced down her spine.
When Mariko trembled - sparks dancing across her skin - Okami laughed softly.

I really enjoyed this book! And I adored Okami and Mariko. Some first kiss, eh? 😏
