Swoon Thursday #2 Balthazar

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!

Last week I chose to select my Swoon from Evernight by Claudia Gray. Having developed a fondness for Balthazar while reading this series, I decided that today, I would give him his say.

"Why were you distracted?" She lifted her face to him. "Why did you come after me?"

Balthazar paused one moment before confessing, "Because you were off with some other guy. I couldn't stand it. Skye..."

He didn't finish what he was going to say. He crushed her to him as his mouth closed over hers.

This time he didn't pull away after two kisses, or five, or ten. This time his hands brushed over her hair, outlined her back, traced her entire body. This time she didn't have to come to him. She could get lost in the wild tide that swept over them both, demanding that she touch him, kiss him again, breathe him in.

When his broad hand slid up her skirt to cup her thigh, she gasped in delight, but it shook him out of the trance. "Home," he said, hoarse and ragged. "I need to get you home."

Don't you just love it when a guy gets jealous and then takes control?
