This week, I’m SWOONING over:
The Collector (Dante Walker #1) by Victoria Scott
“Charlie.” I speak to myself, hoping at this point she’s too far gone to comprehend what I’m saying – what I’m feeling. “Stay.” She only smiles and curles into my chest. She becomes heavier in my arms, as if she’s falling asleep upright. Holding her, I don’t feel like her destroyer. I feel like a protector. But that’s not true, is it? I’m not the person she thinks I am. I’m not like her. I’m not good.
And now something a little more physical…
A gasp escapes her throat as I race toward her. I tug her against me and smash my mouth over hers. I feel everything – her hair between my fingers, her skin pressing against mine. And her lips. I feel those soft pink lips freeze for a moment beneath my kiss. And then I feel her relax, opening her mouth and mirroring my movements. She leans into me, raining her arms around my neck, pulling me so that there’s nothing between us.
I’m not exactly finding Dante Walker the kind of bad boy I can crunch on, but these moments were pretty darn swoon worthy. And I do love how he’s growing, all because of Charlie. Which is sweet!
SO NOW IT’S YOUR TURN! On your blog and/or on Twitter, tell us what’s got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.
