Swoon Thursday (#18): Submerged by Nicole Sobon

Swoon Thursday is a hot meme hosted by the fabulous ladies at YA Bound!

- From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering

- Try to make the swoon excerpt 140 characters (or less), if you are going to tweet about it. Use the hashtag #YABOUND when tweeting

This week, my swoon is from Submerged by Nicole Sobon!

"Grinning, Glate placed his left hand under my chin, lifting my head so that we were eye level. He leaned in, and gently, he pressed his lips against mine.

I wrapped my arms around his neck and dug my fingers into his silky, black hair. Glate moved his lips against mine, harder this time. A small moan escaped through his mouth. He pressed his left hand on my hip, pulling me closer to him, erasing the distance between us.

'I like this side of you,' he smirked"

And just because...

"'Things have been crazy.' he said, pressing me back against the concrete wall. 'But I need to know that, if something happens, at least I'll have felt what it is like to kiss you once more.'

Glate stretched my arms above my head and crushed his body against mine. He touched his lips to my neck, leaving a trail of kisses until he found my lips. His gray eyes met mine briefly, and I could see the hunger in them, the passion that burned deep inside him. I could see it because I felt it too."
