Swoon Thursday #6: Blessed Tragedy, Forever My Girl, & Every Rose

It's Swoon Thursday, hosted by  YA Bound. This is a weekly meme, which I will be doing every single Thursday :D! Here is how it works:

From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on your blog. We want to know!

This week I will be posting Swoons from Blessed Tragedy by H.B. Heinzer, Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin, and Every Rose by Lynetta Halat.

Swoon #1:

I tried to get away as Colton walked towards me but he was too fast. He squeezed my arms forcing me to look at him. "Don't you get it? I do want to be here. I want to be here for you. I hate that you're hurting. I want to be the person you turn to when you're sad. I want to be the person you scream at when you're upset. That is why I wanted to be here. But right now I feel like I have to be so fucking careful to not touch you in a certain way, to not get too close. That's what's killing me."-loc1121

 Swoon #2:

Just as I reached for the hanger, I was lifted off my feet and tossed onto the bed.
    "You have no clue how long I've waited to do this," Colton said, his voice husky and low. He lowered himself on top of me, his eyes burning with desire. Just opened my moth to protest, his lips brushed against mine so gently it made my body ache for more.-loc1320

 Swoon #1:

"What's wrong, Jojo?" he whispers seductively, his nose skimming behind my ear making my breathing labored and unsteady. When he bites my ear, I squirm in my seat. I have to move away from him before I do something I regret.-loc1822

Swoon #2:

His hand grips my hip, pulling me even closer, grinding into me. I bite my lip to keep my mouth from falling open. Anticipation builds. The desire is there and he knows it. He's studying me, marking me as his prey.-loc1856

 Swoon #1:

"I have your initials tattooed on my arm. I have your face tattooed in my brain. I have your soul tattooed in my heart."-loc342

Swoon #2:

When I've exposed most of my neck, I feel his calloused fingertips brush my hair from it. Everything in me clenches in anticipation. I feel his warm breath before I feel his lips place a long, lingering kiss there.-loc1727

I had a lot of swoon moments to share with you guys today. I tried to pick just one, but I just decide to share two. I will try not to share too many next  Thursday.

What did you think of my swoons? What are you swooning over this week? Leave a link to your post in the comments.
