This week, my swoon is from Love, Life, and the List by Kasie West!

When I didn't stop he signed and said, "Fine. I guess our first kiss is going to be awful."

I had to purse my lips even harder to control my smile. I put my hands on his shoulders and stretched on my tiptoes. He rolled his eyes and pressed his tightly puckered lips to mine. It was just as bad as I knew it would be. I smiled and pulled away.

"See, it can only get -"

He slid his hand to the back of my neck and pulled me to him. His lips were soft this time as they found mine. He kissed me once, then twice, then ran his lips along mine. "Better," he whispered, finishing my sentence. 

- ARC, pages 363-364

This book was adorable! I love a good friends-to-more romance. This book felt more like "old-school" Kasie West and I loved it!
