Swoon Thursday (#120): Joyride by Anna Banks

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 Joyride by Anna Banks!

His hand comes to rest at the nape of my neck, his fingers entwined in my hair, and he pulls me closer against him. His lips are soft, so soft and swollen, and the way he uses them against me is surreal. 

He leans until his chest touches mine, his free hand sliding down my arm, leaving behind a molten trail in the wake of his caress. And that's when my hands start working. They have a mind of their own, my hands. They're on his shoulders, then his biceps, wrapping his arms around my waist in, pulling him to me, until our clothes are just thin dividers between flesh.

- eARC, 56%

(I didn't like this book. But Anna writes nice swoons.)

(They're very pretty!)


  1. Such a sweet swoon. 'Close are just thin dividers between flesh.' Yeah, I like that line. Nice pick, Alyssa. Shame you didn't enjoy the whole book.

  2. Nice swoon~ I hate when I don't like the book. It makes me sad and kinda mad especially when I think I am going to love it.
