SWOON Thursday (#29): Madly by M. Leighton

Here's mine:

And then there was an explosion, only it was contained behind the walls of my heart. Jackson’s fingers wrapped around my wrist and it was as if my body, my mind, my power were all suddenly hooked up to jumper cables. A blinding light burst behind my lids, sending a shower of colorful sparks flying into the sky of my brain.

With a gasp, my eyes flew open. I turned to him and I was immediately lost to the world around us. My bones melted and swirled inside me, leaving me with nothing more than the electricity of Jackson’s touch to keep me upright. A feeling, a want, like nothing I’d ever felt before squeezed my lungs and burned in my chest. It was primal and profound, and I knew that he felt it, too.

Jackson’s eyes were on fire. They screamed a desire that he couldn’t control. They cried a hunger that matched my own. I could see it all, everything that I felt, mirrored in the shimmering depths of the brilliant blue.
