This week, my swoon is from Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris!
He pulls me to him and whispers, "Are you okay?" His breath is warm on my cheek.
I tilt my face to his, look up past the dark curls and long eyelashes, into those bottomless eyes. I almost tell him the truth - that I haven't been okay since he left. But I can't bring myself to speak.
Instead, I look at his lips and raise up on my toes so they're only a millimeter from mine, then I lift my eyes to his.
His lips part. Under my hand his chest rises and falls faster than it should, and his heart pulses through his whole body and reverberates into me.
One of his hands slides behind my back, the other he lays over my fingers, and we stand there suspended in time, in the dark, with only the warmth of our bodies, and the sounds of our breaths.
"I'm sorry," Ben says, and then his lips are on mine.
They're soft, and he tastes minty, and the familiarity of it just feels so right. I kiss him back with everything I am, opening my lips, touching his tongue, remembering every inch of his mouth.

Last week I shared a swoon from Unraveling (book one), so I thought it was fitting that I share a swoon from book two today. I still need to review both of these, but I really enjoyed them!
