This week, my swoon is from The Knowing by Sharon Cameron!

(from Beckett's POV)

I feel my pulse ramp again. She runs a thumb across my cheek. And then she leans in and kisses me. Slow. My hand squeezes, full of her hair, and she pulls away, eyes closed, waiting. I'm not sure I'm breathing.

I say, "Will that be a good memory?"

She opens her eyes. "Yes."

"Do you want another?"


I bring her mouth back to mine and kiss her again, and again, and now she's like she was in the cave, only this time she doesn't hesitate, and she doesn't stop. We're on some kind of thick rug, and I press her into it while she pulls me down, keeping her still while she's desperately struggling not to be. I break away from her mouth, and I like the noise she makes when I kiss her neck, breathe her smell, explore the triangle of skin left open by her collar.

- ARC, pages 269-270
