This week, my swoon is from Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel!

His words squeeze my heart. I have so many more questions - loads of them, but they're suddenly not as important as this charged beat of quiet. Time holds still. Neither of us moves. Neither of us breathes. The air between us snaps, compresses, pulls us toward each other.

He moves forward on hands and knees at the same time I do. His hand slips around the back of my head, into my hair. He pulls me close as I reach for him. My hands land on his warm chest, curl against the rapid beat beneath.

Unlike our last kiss, I know this one's coming. I have a sudden, unbidden worry if I'm any good at this - kissing, that is - then his mouth is on mine and coherent thought blasts into a billion tiny pieces.
