This week, my swoon is from Everless by Sara Holland!

He leans down, closing the distance between us, and before I can move, before I can even think, his lips find mine.

I gasp against his mouth. For a moment, I'm frozen, stiff - then a private war erupts across every cell in my body, starting from my chest and moving outward, until every part of me is screaming simultaneously to pull away and press closer. And the latter side is winning, rapidly. Roan threads his fingers through my hair, tilting my face back to meet his; and in response, as if of their own accord, my arms come up around his waist, and I pull him against me. The desire - not just for Roan himself but to be wanted, to be loved the way I loved him when I was young, to belong, for some wholeness in my childhood to be restored, to be true - rushes through me, carrying away all the dark discoveries of the night.

This book had a slow start for me but I'm really getting into it! I'm excited to see how things end. The romance is subtle and unique because of the childhood aspect, so it'll be interesting to see how things pan out. Let me know your thoughts, if you've read this book!
