This week, my swoon is from Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne!
His lips were chapped, rough, but I didn't care. I was far more focused on my own unmitigated panic. I'd never been kissed, not properly, and the last time I'd tried to kiss someone - George - I'd performed abysmally. I knew one thing. If I didn't kiss him back, Hugo would stop, and I did not want that to happen. My entire body was celebrating, every inch of me on fire, beating wildly, shouting with joy. I raised myself up on my tiptoes and returned pressure in kind, parting my lips just so, like I'd seen a many a movie night. And - oh! Hugo pulled me in closer, strong hand at the small of my back, and introduced his tongue into the mix.
