This week, my swoon is from Scion of the Sun by Nicola Marsh!

His hands slid all the way around my waist, pulling me almost flush against him. "Don't even think it."

Think? Who could possibly think when pressed against his hard body with my hands resting helplessly against his chest, itching to slide up and pull his head toward me?

Momentary insanity was my only plea for thinking like that; of course he'd know what a pathetic pining loser I was and release me like he had the last time we'd gotten this close. It didn't happen, and when I finally had the guys to glance up, the hunger in his eyes had my lips parting in a surprised O.

This time, there was no prolonged moment of exquisite torturous anticipation, no time for second-guessing. This time, we went for broke. 

Our lips met in a clash of pure, unadulterated heat. An explosion of longing of soul-deep need burst over me. I wondered how I could've denied myself this incredible feeling for so long. Were all kisses like this? Or was I just so naive, so new at this, it felt like the greatest thing in the world?

Read my review HERE.
