This week, my swoon is from The Marked Girl by Lindsey Klingele!

Cedric's eyes focused on hers again, and then he was moving closer, closer his hand resting on her neck now. She could see his eyelids dropping, and his lips as his mouth drew nearer and nearer to hers.

Then he was kissing her, first slowly, and then completely, with one hand still on the back of her neck and the other reaching to her waist.

Liv's whole body felt fuzzy, soft around the edges. And then Cedric's hands were running gently along her beck, the rough skin of his fingers drawing little invisible lines that made the small hairs there rise up, up, up.

She leaned into him, deepening the kiss and letting out a small sigh when it went from gentle into something more. Cedric gripped her harder. She ran her hand down the length of his chest, her fingers playing at the edge of his shirt. She carefully lifted it, hand shaking just a little, and let her hands run over the flat edge of his stomach there.
