This week, my swoon is from The Girl with the Windup Heart by Kady Cross!

Griffin was awake.

Finley went to him and placed her hands on either side of his face, feeling the stubble on his scratch her palms. His eyes were brighter now, the kind of blue that a summer sky sometimes aspired to. 

"I dreamed about you," he murmured with a slow smile.

She pressed her lips to his, kissing him as though she hadn't kissed him in weeks, as though the fate of the world depended upon a thorough kissing, He didn't seem to mind. He kissed her back, fingers curving over the back of her neck as though he was afraid she might try to break the kiss before he was ready. Silly boy.

Check out my review of this book HERE!

I loved this book! And the series in general. I wish there were more scenes like this between Griffin and Finley!


  1. I like kisses where the fate of the world seems to depend on it. Love the color of the dress on the cover. Glad you're enjoying the series.
