This week, my swoon is from The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin!
I placed my hands on his chest. His heart beat faster. His control was slipping.
I leaned closer, my hands moving lower down his stomach, my back arched above him. I kissed his throat. I heard a sharp intake of breath.
I smiled against his skin, moved my lips along his jaw, his throat, marveling at the point where the rough became smooth. My hands wandered slowly to his waist and he slid my dress up, his fingers hot on my bare skin, making me breathless. Making me ache. I pressed into him harder, my body bent, bowstring-tight over his. His mouth was just millimeters from mine.
"Fuck," he murmured against my lips. The feel, the word, sent a hot little shock through my spine. It skittered through my veins, danced through every nerve.
And then I brushed his lips with mine.

I'm almost finished with my read/reread of this series! I want to get started on The Retribution of Mara Dyer as soon as possible, so hopefully next week I'll feature a swoon from that book. I'm excited!
