Right now I am still SWOONING over HALF-BLOOD by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
“You should tel me to stop.”
I didn’t say a word.
Aiden made a deep sound in his throat. His hand slid up my back, leaving a trail of fire in its wake, and his lips
moved across my cheek, stopping to hover above mine. I forgot how to breathe, and most importantly, how to
He moved, ever so slightly, and his lips brushed across mine once, and then twice. It was such a soft, beautiful
kiss, but when the kiss deepened, it wasn’t a shy one. This was one of dangerously pent-up need, a desire
that’d been denied far too long. The kiss felt fierce, demanding, and soul burning.
Aiden pul ed me to him, pressing me right up against his body. And when he kissed me again, it left both of us
breathless. Our hands tangled with each other’s bodies as we made it back to his bedroom. My hands found
their way under his shirt and over the taut skin of his sides. We separated long enough for me to get the shirt
off, and gods, each hard ripple was as breathtaking as I’d imagined.
Easing me down on his bed, his hands glided from my face to my arms. Next his hand traveled over my
stomach, then my hip, and under the hem of my dress. Somehow, the top of my dress ended up at my waist,
and his mouth moved over my body. I melted into him, his kisses, and his touch. My fingers dug into the tight
skin of his arms, and my insides were in tight coils. Every place our bodies touched, sparks flew.
Aiden pul ed his lips away from mine, and I made a sound of protest, but then his mouth trailed across my
throat and to the base of my neck. My skin burned and my thoughts were on fire. His name was barely a
whisper, but I felt his lips curve against my skin.
His gaze and fingers fol owed some unseen path as he rol ed me on top. “You’re so beautiful. So brave, so ful
of life.” He guided my head down and dropped a sweet kiss against the scar on my neck. “You have no idea,
You have so much life in you, so much.”
I tipped my head and he kissed the tip of my nose.
“Yes.” He brushed my hair back from my face. “Since the night I saw you in Georgia, you’ve been under my
skin. You got inside me, became a part of me. I can’t shake it. It’s wrong.” He shifted us, rol ing me across the
bed until he leaned above me. “Agapi mou, I can’t…” He brought his lips down to mine once more.
There were no more words. Our kisses hardened, his lips and hands took on a purpose that could only mean
one thing. I’d never gone this far with a guy before, but I knew I wanted to be with him. There was no doubt,
Everything in my world hinged on this moment.
Aiden lifted his head, staring down at me with that question in his eyes. “Do you trust me?”
I ran my fingers over his cheek, then his parted lips.
He made a deep sound in his throat and caught my hand.
Bringing it to his lips, he pressed a kiss against each fingertip, then my palm and then my lips. -from a chapter in Half-Blood
-A very long swoon! :)))
