This week, my swoon is from What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum!
I am kissing David Drucker. I am kissing David Drucker. I am kissing David Drucker.
I was wrong. I had assumed this would be his first kiss, that it would be fumbling and a bit messy but still fun. No way. Can't be. This guy knows exactly what he's doing. How to cradle the back of my head with his hands. How to move in soft and slow, and then pick up the pace, and then slow down again. How to brush my cheeks with even smaller kisses, how to work his way down to my jaw, and to soften the worry spot in the center of my brown. How to pause and look into my eyes, really look, so tenderly I feel it all the way down in my stomach.
He even traces the small zigzag scar on my eyebrow with his fingertips, like it's something beautiful.
I could kiss him forever.
I'm going to kiss him forever.
I am kissing David Drucker, and yes, I've forgotten everything else.
Because his lips are back on mine.
Because this, right here, is the best kiss of my life.
- ARC, pages 233-234
