Swoon Thursday (#263): Broken Beautiful Hearts by Kami Garcia

- From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering

This week, my swoon is from Broken Beautiful Hearts by Kami Garcia!

Owen wraps his arm around my waist and pulls me against him. When I don't protest, he slides his other hand up my back and into my hair. "Unless you tell me to stop, I'm going to kiss."

He leans in, never taking his eyes off mine. When his lips graze mine, it feels too good. The kind of good I want to feel a hundred more times. 

Owen brushes his lip against mine, and the contact sends shock waves through my body. He continues to tease me, tracing the seam of my lips with his tongue.

I part my lips. Owen accepts the invitation and kisses me for real. 

My hands touch the bare skin on his chest. He moans - low and sexy. He tastes sweet, with a hint of copper from the cut on his lip. I loop my hands around his neck, and he tightens his hold around my waist, carefully turning us until I'm leaning against the lockers.

The combination of the cold metal against my back and the heat of Owen's skin against my chest creates a delicious burn inside me. Part of me knows I should stop kissing him, but the other part of me that wants this wins out.
