Swoon Thursday (#89): The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris

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 The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris!

"No offense," he says, the rough sound causing my stomach to flip. "But I've waited entirely too long to kiss you again, and simply didn't do the memory justice."

Brandon slides off the hood and grasps my waist, lifting and placing me on the car instead. His palms push my knees apart, and he presses his body between them to get closer, but not close enough. Threading his fingers into my hair, he turns my face toward him, and I meet his gaze briefly before my eyes flutter shut, feeling his warm breath fan across my face.

If he doesn't kiss me soon, it's quite possible I'll explode.

Then I feel it - the heat of his mouth hovering just above mine. I tremble, held in what seems like an eternity in the moment of before. Before our friendship changes forever. Before our real relationship begins. Then, finally, the sliver of distance between our lips closes.

- ARC, page 215

This was one of the sweetest scenes!


  1. Nice swoon. I love the part that says, 'Before our real relationship begins.' That is so sweet. I definitely think this one needs to be added to my TBR pile.
