Swoon Thursday (26): Pretty Crooked and Shatter Me

It's that time again! We created a HOT meme, and if you're new to the game, here's how to join in the fun:

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 ours:


The Twitter Swoon::
I felt his lips first, pulling gently on mine as we found each other, drew away, & reconnected in soft pulses--Pretty Crooked SWOON #YABound

And the Extended Bloggy Swoon:

"What is it?" I gasped, terrified that something else had happened. "What's wrong?"

"I forgot something," he said, stopping in front of me and staring straight into my eyes. He grabbed my shoulders, and my already-racing heartbeat doubled its RPM.
I felt his lips first, pulling gently on mine as we found each other, drew away, and reconnected in soft pulses. His arms wrapped around my neck, his open hand cradling the back of my head. His chest pressed against me, firm and sturdy. Then his mouth--insistent, yet warm and enveloping.
          The intensity of our bodies could shatter these walls. It nearly does.--Shatter Me SWOON    #YABound
Now the longer and steamier one, which I can't help but feel is too perfect since this is a shower scene...yeah, I know.
          My fingers are tugging at the hem of his wet clothes and his eyes widen for only a second before he rips the material off himself. He grabs my hands and lifts my arms above my head and pins me against the wall, kissing me until I'm sure I'm dreaming, drinking in my lips with his lips and he tastes like rain and sweet musk and I'm about to explode.

NOW IT'S YOUR TURN: In 140 characters . . . um, or a bit more if you're like us LOL, SWOON us!

  14. Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I
    was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    site? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.http://faceluck.org/link/43825
