This week, my swoon is Of Dreams and Rust by Sarah Fine!
His lips press to mine, soft and searching, and I close my eyes and welcome him. My heart is beating so fast that I can breathe , and all of me is tingling. His tongue traces a delicate oath along my bottom lip, and I wrap my hand around the back of his neck and pull him closer. He may have been a perfect hero in my dreams, but the perfect hero did not taste like this. He was not arm and trembling like this. He had no weight, no force. But this Melik, the one made of flesh and faults, has all of that, an my body recognizes the difference. It revels in that difference.
He deepens our kiss, his whiskers scratching at my face, one hand sliding down my back to my waist, the other cradling my head above the hard rumbles of the carriage. Parts of me are soft and hot, and others are taut and frantic. I am a jumble of mismatched pieces, but somehow all of them have the same goal. Bring him closer.
- ARC pages, 127-128
I am in love with Sarah Fine's books! Seriously, the lady is an amazing writer. This book was beautiful!

YEAH! There were so many achingly swoony scenes in this book, sometimes not even physically! This one was probably my favorite ;)Delete
Yay for awesome swoon :D And yay for it being after just about 100 pages, lol, and not at the end :) Thank you for sharing sweet girl. <3ReplyDelete
RIGHT!? I look for the same thing, Carina. Swoons that happen fairly quickly in sequels are the best! You're very welcome ^_^Delete
