My Swoon for this week comes from:

End of Days
(Penryn & the End of Days #3)
Susan Ee 

First - The Blurb:

End of Days is the explosive conclusion to Susan Ee’s bestselling Penryn & the End of Days trilogy.

After a daring escape from the angels, Penryn and Raffe are on the run. They’re both desperate to find a doctor who can reverse the twisted changes inflicted by the angels on Raffe and Penryn’s sister. As they set off in search of answers, a startling revelation about Raffe’s past unleashes dark forces that threaten them all.

When the angels release an apocalyptic nightmare onto humans, both sides are set on a path toward war. As unlikely alliances form and strategies shift, who will emerge victorious? Forced to pick sides in the fight for control of the earthly realm, Raffe and Penryn must choose: Their own kind, or each other? 

Second - The Swoon:

I slowly inch his hand up so that his thumb presses against the soft flesh of my breast.
Then I nudge it up just another fraction.
Raffe's breathing is still steady. He's still asleep.
A little more. Just a fraction...
Until I can feel the warmth of his hand spreading over my chest.
And then everything changes.

His breathing becomes ragged. His hand pushes up and begins kneading my flesh. Demanding. On the verge of hurting, but not quite. An incredible sensation runs through me, starting from my breast and flooding out from there.

He moans and kisses the nape of my neck. He works his way up to my mouth. His lips land on mine, hot and wet and sucking. His tongue sweeps in, teasing mine. My whole world is a mass of sensations.

He flips me onto my back and moves over me. The weight of his body presses me down against the mattress. My arms slip around his neck, and my legs and hips shift restlessly. 

I'm whimpering or moaning, I'm not sure which. I'm so deeply lost in the vortex of sensations that the only thing that matters is the here and now.

Yes, I know my swoon's a little long, but it was difficult to decide exactly where to terminate it. Things don't get much more heated from here so this seemed like a good point to stop.

Although I enjoyed the series, the ending was a bit predictable and there were a few loose ends that could have been tied up a little better. Overall though, A good read.

My Rating: 4 out of 5
