Swoon Thursday #11 – Bruxa, The Secret Within by A.F.Costa

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!

This week I found a little something in a book for a tour I’ll be hosting soon. I hope you like it!

Bruxa – The Secret Within by A.F.Costa
Published April 25th 2012

My Teaser

 “Gabriella, I love how your face can be so animated.” He gently brushed his lips over my forehead. “I love the way you look at life.”

His lips moved to my right cheek. “I love how you make me laugh.” He kissed the opposite cheek.

I sensed where this was going, and panic flooded in as he leaned in towards my mouth. I had never kissed a boy and had no idea what to do. My heart beat rapidly to a point I thought it would explode out of my chest. I felt the tension of breath, our desire undeniable. He softly ran his fingertips across my lips and leaned in closer. There is no more time for timidity.

“I love everything about you,” he whispered as his soft lips pressed against mine. An electrifying jolt ran through me as he kissed me. He lifted his head away and looked at me, seeking my approval. I placed my hands on his face and closed my eyes as I leaned in to kiss his bottom lip. He kissed the top of my lip gently then pulled back, leaving me wanting more.
