This week, my swoon is from Push by Eve Silver!
"I hate you," I whisper, wishing it were true.
"Do you now?" His smile is hard and dangerous, and I can feel something coiled tight between us. Anger? Yeah... but something else, too.
Then he shifts closer, his palms cupping my cheeks. I should slap his hands away. I should scoot back on the branch, But I don't. I close my fingers around his wrists and just hold on.
Every cell in my body reacts to him. My lips part. My breath comes too fast.
He lowers his mouth to mine, his kiss both hard and soft, tasting like mint.
He drinks me in, a boy parched, and I am the deep, cool well. I'm falling, lost in him, lost in this, the wonder of his kiss, lips and tongue and the scrape of his teeth.
I want to lean in closer, tangle my fingers in his hair, and kiss him deeper, harder.
- ARC, pages 136-137
