Swoon Thursday #44 – My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent


The fabulous girls over at YA Bound created this super HOT meme. Here's how it works.

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! I want to know & so do the chicks at YABound!

I have finally decided to start this series now the final book is out, because I know I am going to be addicted to it until the very end!! Today,  I decided to share with you Kaylee and Nash's first kiss... It's a little long but those who have read it will love to reminisce!! And for those who haven't read it, what are you waiting for? 



My Soul to Take
Rachel Vincent
Soul Screamers #1


“What should I be thinking about?” My own voice came out lower, my words so soft I could barely hear them.
“Me,” he whispered back, leaning forward so that his lips brushed my ear as he spoke. His scent enveloped me, and his cheek felt scratchy against mine. “You should be thinking about me.” His fingers intertwined with mine in my lap, and he pulled away from my ear slowly, his lips skimming my cheek, deliciously soft in contrast to the sharp stubble. He dropped a trail of small kisses along my jaw, and my heart beat harder with every single one.
When he reached my chin, the kisses trailed up until his mouth met mine, gently sucking my lower lip between his. Teasing without making full contact. My chest rose and fell quickly, my breaths shallow, my pulse racing.

He heard me. He must have. Nash pulled back just long enough to meet my gaze, heat blazing behind his eyes, and I realized that he was breathing hard too. His fingers tightened around mine and his free hand slid into the hair at the base of my skull.
Then he kissed me for real.
My mouth opened beneath his, and the kiss went deeper as I drew him in, suddenly ravenous for something I’d never even tasted. My fingers tightened around his, and my free hand found his arm, exploring the hard planes, reveling in the potential of such restrained strength.



Did you get swooned this week?

  1. I really want to read this series, because the main character's a banshee and its covers are really nice (especially the dresses and the mist/fog molding together). Maybe I should start it now too, since I don't have to wait for anything anymore.

    I like this series, but I will be honest- I am not a Nash fan. Good swoon though.
