Okay, so today my swoon comes from a book, that no doubt, many of you will be familiar with.  I chose it not only because it's one of my most favourite reads, but also because the final book in the series is due out in a few short days and I thought that now would be a good time to share a scene which I particularly enjoy.
Becca Fitzpatrick
Done stalling, I told myself at last. Leaning in, I closed my eyes.
His mouth opened under mine, his tightly reined control shuddering through his body. His arms wrapped around me, securing me against him. He kissed me harder, and the depth of my response unnerved me.
My legs felt wobbly and heavy. I sank into Jev, and he backed us slowly down the wall until I came to straddle his lap. Brightness lit up inside me, and the heat of it consumed every hollow corner. A hidden world opened between us, one that was as frightening as it was familiar. I knew it was real. I'd kissed like this before. I'd kissed Patch like this before. I couldn't remember calling him anything but Jev, but somehow Patch just felt... right. The hot deliciousness of being with him came roaring back, threatening to swallow me whole.
I pulled away first, trailing my tongue along my lower lip.
Patch made a low, questioning sound. "Not bad?"
I bent my head towards his. "Practice makes perfect."
The full scene can be found on p265 - 266 of the paperback version.
