This week, my swoon is from Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer!
He turns to face me, and before I'm ready for it, he moves close. Very close. So close that his cheek is against my cheek, and one hand is against my neck. If I take a deep breath, I'll be pressed up against him. His breath tickles my ear, his stubble brushing my jaw.
"Is this okay?" he says softly.
"Okay? This is about three thousand times better than my idea with the phones."
He laughs, and our chests do touch. One of his hands finds my waist. We could be dancing instead of sharing secrets. I have the sudden urge to wrap my arms around him.

I don't remember the last time a book utterly consumed me like this one did. I planned on reading this one over two days, but instead, I found myself completely immersed in the story and unable to stop reading, and suddenly it's well past midnight and I've finished the book. It was wonderful! This is a non-kissy swoony scene and one of my favorites of the book. =)
Yep. Good choice. I swooned, but I may be biased, since I really love Declan.ReplyDelete
Sam @ WLABB
Not biased at all! He was my favorite in the book. =)Delete

I love when a book completely takes over your life and doesn't let you stop reading!! I've heard so many amazing things about this one, I'm hoping to read it in my next few reads! Oooh, and thank you for the swoon-worthy peek!ReplyDelete
But actually! I couldn't even believe it was 11:30 and I'd read most of the book - I was flying through this one. I hope you love it, Becky!Delete

You do! It was a good one, Kristyn!Delete
Eee, such a pretty scene :D Love it. <3 But aw, they do kiss before this, yes? If not, so long with no kissing :( Aw.ReplyDelete
Nope, it was a kiss-free book. Which sounds non-swoony, but there were plenty of swoony scenes! Just not kissy ones. :oDelete
It is still a great swoon worthy scene for being a non-kissing swoon. Great pick Alyssa, I really like this swoon as well. Thank you so much for the awesome post my friend.ReplyDelete
Agreed! I liked the scene a lot. Thank YOU, Katiria!Delete
