SWOON Thursday (#20): Wasteland by Lynn Rush

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 week's SWOON is from a New Adult novel, so this scene is a little more mature than YA):

Contact with her silky mouth stole my breath. Her grip tightened, but she didn't wrench away. A current pulsed to my chest. My rabid demon wanted to rip off her clothes and take her, but I stomped him down. Leaving one of my hands on her warm, lower back, I let the other trail up, following the dips and grooves of her spine.

I imagined it was her bare flesh, not the feel of her cotton shirt. My hand found her neck, and I tilted her head for better access. A moan filtered through her into my mouth, and she parted her lips, inviting me in. My tongue sought hers with a tentative brush, chasing her sweet taste and lilac smell. She deepened the kiss.
