This week, my swoon is from Keeper of the Bees by Meg Kassel!
"Shut up, Dresden." She dips her head. Her lips touch mine hesitantly.
My first instinct is to pull away, but this is my mouth. My lips.
I have one last lifetime to live. Just one.
I gently lean up and kiss her, giving her plenty of time and space to pull back. Instead, her hand fists in the front of my hospital gown and her mouth parts over mine. My fingers thread into her hair, and I breathe into this first kiss, for both of us. I close my eyes and melt into a euphoria I'd completely underestimated.
Her lips curve against mine. "You still taste like honey."

This romance was slow-burn and worth it for the end! You have to understand a little bit of context when reading this swoon - Dresden has lived for decades and his face has shifted many times. It's a very cool concept and the story was great!
