This week, I’m SWOONING over:
The Darkest Part by Trisha Wolfe
Swoon #1 from Holden’s POV:
Shutting down my brain, I brush a wet lock of hair from her cheek. She gasps and bites down on her lip, and it’s my undoing. Gripping her soaking shirt, I pull her to me and press my lips to hers.
It’s soft and questioning, us trying to figure out our beat. It’s nervous and unsure, but as her mouth parts to welcome me in, I dip my tongue inside the hollow of her mouth, taste the sweetness of her.
Swoon #2 from Sam’s POV (my personal favorite):
“It’s the darkest part,” I say, and a mock laugh tumbles from my mouth. “I can relate. It’s dark, stubborn, callous, dead on the inside.” The wind picks up, sending my hair lashing against my cheeks. I don’t care how crazy I sound to him anymore. It’s true. Since losing Tyler, I’m just like my lovely dead trees.
Holden’s thumb pauses over my vein, and his icy eyes find and hold mine. “That’s only one perspective. The way I see it, the heartwood is strong, tough, beautiful, and resilient. It can fight off any outside threat that tries to invade, and in rare cases…is alive. It may be the darkest part, but a living heartwood is a force to be reckoned with.”
The Darkest Part is an amazing NA read! If you haven’t added it to Goodreads, I highly recommend it. Click here to add!
