This week, my swoon is from Altered by Jennifer Rush!
His hand went to my waist as his eyes met mine. His fingers found bare flesh beneath the hem of my T-shirt. Every nerve ending in my body thrummed in response.
"Sam," I said, though I couldn't pull together the rest of what I wanted to say, all the things I should have said.
He leaned in and brushed his lips against mine, feather-light at first, then more eager. My heart thundered as he exhaled, like he'd been holding the air in his lungs for far too long.
My hands walked up his biceps as his fingers threaded through my hair, sending ribbons of heat down to my skull. He pressed into me as it he couldn't get close enough, and I pressed back. Because I wasn't close enough. Because I'd spent the last several years of my life wishing I could be closer.

I was rereading this book this week, and couldn't help but share a swoon from it. This is one of my favorite books of all time. =)
