Swoon Thursday is a meme hosted by YABound.
From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.
Today, I am spotlighting Fate Succumbs (Timber Wolves Trilogy #3) by Tammy Blackwell, the third and final book in the Timber Wolves Trilogy. I just finished this series and it was so, so good! I can't wait to read the recently release spin-off, Fragile Brilliance! And now, on to the swoon:
"Why are you wearing that face?" he asked.
I touched my cheek. Thanks to my mom and Gramma Hagan, I was starting to gain weight, but my cheekbone still stuck out a bit too far.
"This is the face God gave me," I said, trying to hide the hurt in my voice. "I can't exactly take it off and put it on a shelf."
"I'm talking about this." A finger brushed against my mouth. "And this." He tapped the corner of each eye.
"Those came with the face. It was a package deal."
"Did they come all scrunched up like that? Because, in my experience, you only look like that when you're stressed or frustrated." He huffed out a breath and rubbed the back of his head. "Is it because I'm here? I should have called you first. Sorry. I just wanted to surprise you."
Something in my chest felt warm, probably the last little piece of my heart melting for him.
"I'm frustrated because I want to touch you so bad I'm literally hurting my hand to prevent it, and I'm stressed because I don't know how you'll react when I lose control."
[He]* looked at me like I was an alien for about half a second before crawling over me, one hand finding the back of my head to drag my lips to his. He was enthustiastic in his kiss, and I responded in kind. I didn't realize how much I missed the taste and feel of him until he was in my arms.
