My Swoon for this week comes from:

(Existence Trilogy #1)

Abbi Glines

First - The Blurb:

What happens when you're stalked by Death? You fall in love with him, of course.

Pagan Moore doesn't cheat Death, but instead, falls in love with him.

Seventeen year old Pagan Moore has seen souls her entire life. Once she realized the strangers she often saw walking through walls were not visible to anyone else, she started ignoring them. If she didn't let them know she could see them, then they left her alone. Until she stepped out of her car the first day of school and saw an incredibly sexy guy lounging on a picnic table, watching her with an amused smirk on his face. Problem is, she knows he's dead.

Not only does he not go away when she ignores him, but he does something none of the others have ever done. He speaks. Pagan is fascinated by the soul. What she doesn't realize is that her appointed time to die is drawing near and the wickedly beautiful soul she is falling in love with is not a soul at all.

He is Death and he's about to break all the rules.

Second - The Swoon:

I took another step toward him. A growl erupted from his chest and he seized me in one swift movement. His mouth found mine instantly. His teeth nipped my bottom lip and then he gently swiped his tongue over the bite. My first taste of him sent my world spinning. Somehow I'd known it would be like this. I grabbed handfuls of Dank's shirt. I needed to keep him here against me, finally allowing me to have what I'd been craving. His arms tightened around me and I heard a moan in the darkness but I wasn't sure if it was his or mine. My purpose in life was complete. There was nothing else I wanted or desired more than this.There was a darkness pulling at us, I couldn't grasp what exactly but even through the haze of pleasure I knew it was there. Dank trailed kisses down my neck and murmured words I didn't understand. I released his shirt to grab his face, hungrily bringing his mouth back to mine. His hands slowly ran up my back and slipped over my ribs. My breath hitched as his thumbs grazed the bottom of my bra. Dank tore his mouth from mine, panting loudly. It thrilled me to see him as needy as I was for this.

Yeah folks - sorry it was a little long.

  4. Awesome swoon! I think I own this book but have yet to read it. Are you a fan of this one so far?

    Yeah while he does seem a tad desperate for the story it completely makes sense. He has been waiting almost 3 years to kiss the main character I would be desperate too.

    Great swoon as always and I hope you're having an awesome week!
