My Swoon for this week comes from:

(Denazen #3)

Jus Accardo

First - The Blurb:

Dez Cross has problems. She’s almost eighteen and on the verge of losing her mind thanks to the drug Denazen used to enhance her abilities. People close to her have turned their back on the underground and are now fighting for the wrong side. And then there’s Kale... Things couldn’t get any worse.

Until of course, they do. Denazen is about to start a new trial—this one called Domination—and it works. But that means out with the old and in with the new. The order has been given to terminate all remnants of the second trial—including Dez. The good news is that there’s a survivor from the original trial. A woman who’s blood may hold the cure for the second generation of Supremacy kid’s defect. But the underground Sixes aren’t the only ones who know about her….

Cross is willing to throw everything he has to keep Dez from getting the cure—including the one thing that might tear her apart from the inside out.

Second - The Swoon:

I opened my mouth to speak but could only gasp when he leaned even closer. Icy blue eyes kept me rooted as his jaw tightened. It was like he was concentrating. Trying hard to see me - really see me. "You're right. I am lying. I have strong feeling for you. I just don't know if they're good or..."

He never finished. Instead, he mashed his lips to mine, fingers gripping my hips hard enough to guarantee bruises. I could barely move - barely breathe - but I didn't care. If I was going to die, then this was how I wanted to go out. He might not be 100 percent my Kale, but Kale was Kale. I would take him any way I could.

One minute we were pressed against the back driver's side door, the next we were scooting toward the trunk, lost in each other. Our lips never broke contact. Not as he hefted me onto the trunk or as I wrapped my legs around his waist, securing him tightly as his fingers wound through the belt loops of my jeans.

He kissed me as though I were life itself. Precious and balanced precariously on the edge of everything. With each passing moment it grew more heated. It were as if he was waking up from an eternity of sleep and trying to make up for the time we'd lost. He was Sleeping Beauty and I was the prince.

Third - My Thoughts:

What can I say, I'm absolutely loving this series. Can't wait for the next Installment due for release in 2014.

My Rating: 5 out of 5
