This week, my swoon is from Legendary by Stephanie Garber!


"If you're the hero, what does that make me?"

His finger dipped to her collarbone.

Heat spread across her chest. This would have been the moment to pull away; instead, she let a hint of challenge slip into her voice. "I'm still trying to figure that out."

"Would you like my help?" [redcated] dropped his hand to her hips.

Tella's breathing hitched. "No. I don't want your help... I just want you."

[redacted]'s gaze caught on fire and he took her mouth with his.

This was nothing like the drunken kiss they'd shared on the forest floor, a rough combination of lust and desire for temporary entertainment. This kiss felt like a confession, brutal and raw and honest in a way kisses rarely were. Dante wasn't trying to seduce her; he was convincing her just how little goodness mattered, because nothing he was doing with his hands could have been considered good. Yet every brush of his lips was sweet. Where others had demanded, Dante asked, slowly sweeping his mouth across hers until she parted her lips, letting his tongue slip inside as he pulled her onto his lap.

- eARC, 80%



This book is just as swoony as Caraval! I was nervous to read it because my expectations were so high, but OMG. You can read my thoughts either tomorrow, or Sunday!

  5. Glad you're loving this one! Also, I know you put "redacted" during the dialogue, but you have a name in the actual paragraph (if you're trying to hide a spoiler lol)
