Swoon Thursday #37 – The Collector By Victoria Scott

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 read The Collector over the weekend and I can't help but share some swoons, although he was very popular last week!! I'm sharing some of the best swoon of the book as well as a sweet one too, so there is something new here for you.... 
The Collector
By Victoria Scott
Dante Walker #1

I grab her thighs and hoist her up, and she wraps her legs around me. Fumbling toward a tree, I press her back against it and push toward her, my hips locking against hers. An animalistic groan escapes my throat as I kiss her harder, deeper. I trail my lips down her neck and along her collarbone, and Charlie softly moans. Then I bury my head against her chest and take her in— her smell, her chest rising and falling. The wild thumping of her heart.

As I guide Charlie toward the middle of the floor, Taylor turns and stares at the girl on my arm, her jaw hanging open. She can’t believe how beautiful Charlie is, and I can’t believe I ever missed it. Taylor meets my eyes, then quickly glances away, acting like she doesn’t notice us. I tug Charlie’s head against me and press my lips into her hair. A slow song washes over us, and I move my arms around her waist and rock back and forth.
