Swoon Thursday #21 Opal

The fabulous girls over at YA Bound created this super HOT meme. Here's how it works.

Okay, I'm  a little bit slow, but I have finally managed to cast away my fears of the dreaded cliffhanger  and the long wait for Origin, and I am currently deeply immersed in Opal.
Like the others in the Lux series, this is an awesome book. But I don't have to tell many of you that because you already know.

There are so many swoon worthy moments in this book that it was difficult for me to choose. But choose, I did.
"Instead of arguing, I twisted in his embrace and placed my lips on his, kissing him softly. His lashes lowered, shielding his eyes. He returned the kiss and it was sweet and tender and so perfect that there was a good chance I'd start bawling like a baby.
But then the kisses, well, they changed. They deepened as I rolled onto my back and he followed, his weight a delicious feeling against my legs, and these kisses were anything but sweet. They scorched deep inside me, washing away the events of the last couple of hours like the river had taken away the unholy burn of the onyx. When he kissed like this, every muscle in his body coiling into a tight spring, he undid me.
His hand smoothed the shirt down, baring a shoulder, and his mouth followed. Static built in the air and a tremble coursed through his body. In that moment, after everything that happened, I wanted the feel of him against me with no barriers, nothing getting in the way. Lifting up, I raised my arms and Daemon didn't hesitate. He took what was offered. With nothing there, his hands were everywhere, tracing the slender piece of obsidian, smoothing down the curve of my stomach, over my hips, and I was pretty sure there would be no other moment as perfect as this."
Did Daemon undo you? Is this the perfect moment?

  1. I love this series- although this one was my least favorite of the three so far. Still a great book!

  2. You know me so well, I do love this swoon! I'm pretty sure I chose this moment for my swoon a couple of weeks ago or maybe it was another part of Opal. Its hard to remember cause there are so many swoon worthy scenes in that book. But anyway, I love this choice!

    Thanks for stopping by My Swoon
