I started reading this book today, and I was like, Come On!! Where's a Swoon!! Finally I got one to share with you...

Solid by Shelley Workinger

“I can’t believe you did all this. For me.” This is what it feels like to be honored, I thought, my throat thick. 

“I think you’re worth it,” he said simply, taking my hand and lacing his strong fingers between mine. With my eyes still trained on the ceiling, I felt, rather than saw his head turn toward me. My racing heart screeched to a halt and for an instant I wasn’t sure I was still on the planet.

I slowly turned my face to meet his and found him impossibly close. It was so intensely still that when he blinked his eyes, his long lashes fluttered a breeze across my face. I felt the current buzzing between our side-by-side limbs and I was sure that even the slightest movement would ignite the inevitable spark, would roar into an engulfing flame. 

If he’d been cautious about making the wrong rushed move so far tonight, that hesitation was long gone as his warm lips smoothly met mine. His kiss was everything I’d hoped it would be – confident and strong, but without the intent to conquer. He didn’t so much claim my mouth as draw it to his, calling me to join him at a mutual center.

What do you think?? Nice hey, sweet talker and a romantic!

Did you get swooned this week?

What did you think of mine?
