Swoon Thursday #25 – A Matter of Fate by Heather Lyons

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!

It has taken me a little while, as I have only just started this book, but I finally found a swoon...

A Matter of Fate
Heather Lyons

We’re staring at each other now, eyes locked together, and all of those butterflies or dragonflies are insane with need. I’m tingling and nervous and giddy and terrified all at the same time. Is he feeling the same things I am?

He’s so calm and collected, so outwardly opposite of what’s going on in me. My hands are itching, desperate to touch him, bring him closer. My heart’s racing, chanting words I’m terrified of: kissmekissmekissme.

As if he can hear this, Kellan gently takes my face in his hands. Then he leans forward and his lips touch mine, so softly, really, but at the massive jolt it sends into my system, the dragonflies explode into a full-fledged frenzy.

And then we’re really kissing, and he’s like a drug or fine wine or any of those things that people say make them lightheaded and delirious. My body moves with a mind of its own, close as possible to his, because I want him, need him so much that it’s almost painful. Thunder cracks overhead and the rain falls harder. But I don’t care, because the only thing that matters is this connection between the two of us and the way it makes me feel.

    member of the Eelam Student's Revolutionary Organisation. You can also blow a little air so the edges of the newspaper fly up a bit. Massive action game generates adrenaline rush in your blood to fight against Persian army to defeat them in hell battle full with strong action. The coolest aspect of this game which involves telling a girl or woman you are going to be unknowns.

  10. Now critics will point out that this wasn't a trial of a major auto manufacturer with a finished, fitted, battery pack, but that means something more than just made in America. Huge SUV used car dealerships in tulsa ok usually work on diesel variant which adds to the superlative performance of such luxury used car dealerships in tulsa ok. But when you consider their whole life cycle electric used car dealerships in tulsa ok are actually worse for the environment?
