This week, my swoon is from Awaken by Meg Cabot!
(This is my FAVORITE passage of the book, so I'll share most of it!)
"This is all the therapy I need," he said, raising his hand from my waist to another part of my anatomy, nearer to my heart.
I sucked in my breath. "I'm pretty sure in therapy, that would be called a diversionary tactic."
"Then I need a lot more diversionary tactics," John said, his fingers moving to tug on the string that kept the bodice of my dress closed in the front. "Also, there's something you promised to tell me that you still haven't said -"
I don't know if it was the intoxicating mixture of his closeness; his kisses; the comforting cocoon of pillows; the romantic, constant drumming of the rain outside; or the fact that, after so long, we finally seemed to have found somewhere we could safely be together. But it wasn't long before I found myself murmuring, "I love you, I love you, I love you," exactly as I'd longed to the entire time he was gone.

I loved this book! In my opinion, the first one, Abandon, was pretty good (3 stars), the second one, Underworld, was AWFUL (2 stars), and this one, Awaken, was excellent (4 stars). Such a great end to this trilogy!
