Swoon Thursday (#125): The Marriage Contract by Katee Robert

Swoon Thursday is a hot meme hosted by the fabulous ladies at YA Bound!

This week, my swoon is The Marriage Contract by Katee Robert!

She kissed him, her heels giving enough height that she barely had to go up on her toes. Her lips brushed his, and for one interminable second she was sure neither of them took a breath.

Then his arms were around her, and he took the last step to bring their chests flush together and her back against the wall. Even knowing she should be panicking at being pinned, she slipped her arms around his neck and traced the seam of his lips with her tongue.

That was all it took. 

He let go of her throat to cup the back of her head, and then she was in the middle of the single most devastating kiss of her life. His tongue stroked hers, claiming her mouth - her body - as his own. His hands stayed in place even as he continued the assault on her mouth, his touch header than the nicotine. She arched against him, tilting her head to allow him better access, and he growled in approval. 

- eARC, 7%

I loved this book! My review will be posted tomorrow. A note on the excerpt - he wasn't choking her or anything, before the kiss, I promise! You need a little bit of context but he wasn't hurting her. I wouldn't have shared this and would have been furious, if that were the case! I'm not okay with abusive relationships. Carry on!


  1. Oh wow, that's one hot kiss. Thanks so much for sharing it, Alyssa.
