This week, my swoon is from The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin!
I tilted my head up and asked, "What would you do if I kissed you right now?"
He pretended to think about it for an obnoxious amount of time before saying, "I would kiss you back."
I'd been surviving on crumbs for so long - thoughts of him, memories of us. But now, with him here and close and willing, I realized I'd been starving.
I wrapped my hands around his neck and kissed him softly. His hand grazed the hem of my shirt, and when I felt his skin on mine it was like a storm beneath his fingertips, the rolling of clouds, the snapping of lighting. All at once it was too much and not enough, and I arched against him and kissed him harder, roughly.
You think it can't get worse than wanting someone and not having them, but it can. You can want someone, have them, and want them more. Still. Always. You can never get enough.
We broke apart to breathe, our foreheads still touching. He didn't say he loved me. He didn't need to. I could feel it in the way he pressed my palm against hi neck. His eyes were closed, and my heart turned over. He needed me too.

I'm finishing up this series and OMG the swoonage in this book! Mostly towards the end, but still. Finally! I can't wait to read The Becoming of Noah Shaw. Hopefully there is even more swoonage!
