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. =)
