SWOON Thursday (#16): Fallen in Love by Lauren Kate

Hosted by YA Bound

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. Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on your blog! We want to know :-)

Here's mine (this one's kind of long. I just couldn't bring myself to shorten it):

"What's wrong?"

Miles scratched his forehead. "I dunno. Would you mind, actually, if I took the cap off? I realized today I could see you better without it, and I like it that way."

"See me?" Shelby didn't know why, of all times, her voice chose that moment to crack.

"Yeah. You." He took her hands. Her pulse picked up. Everything about that moment felt really important.

There was just one thing that was wrong.



"Do you mind if I take the gloves off? I love them, and I will wear them, I promise, but right now, I--I can't feel your hands."

Ever so gently, Miles tugged off the leather gloves, one finger at a time. When he was finished, he laid them on the ground and took both of her hands in his again. Strong and reassuring and somehow totally surprising, Miles's grip made her grin from the inside out. In the bough of the laurel tree behind them, a nightingale trilled sweetly. Shelby swallowed. Miles took a slow breath.

"Do you know what I thought when Roland said he was going to send us home tomorrow?"

Shelby shook her head.

"I thought: Now I get to spend Valentine's Day in this incredibly romantic place with this girl I really like."

Shelby didn't know what to say. "You're not talking about Luce, are you?"

"No." He watched her eyes, waiting for something. Shelby felt that dizziness again. "I'm talking about you."
