Swoon Thursday #10: Defiance by C.J. Redwine


Swoon Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by  YA Bound.


Here's how it works:

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. 

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! I want to know & so do the chicks at YABound!



This Swoon Thursday comes from Defiance by C.J. Redwine. There were just so many moments that made me swoon, sigh, and curl my toes, so it was hard to pick. Hopefully this one isn't too spoiler-y!  And I really hope you guys enjoy it! I know I did! Can't wait to finish this book!!




'"I promised to always find you, remember?"
"I remember."
"I promised I would always protect you. You've been wounded badly because I failed to keep that promise."
I shake my head, and the tears spill over, scalding my cheeks with heat.
"But I won't fail you in this, Rachel. No matter what has happened. No matter what you've done. No matter what you will do. I will always love you. I swear it."
His hand clenches around the pendant. and he leans down to capture my gaze with his. "I will always love you."
His arm flex, pulling me against his chest, and his lips hover just above mine, our breath mingling in the dazzling morning air.
"I love you," He whispers and then he kisses me again, his lips rough against mine, his breathing ragged as he devours my fear and makes me long to feel this way forever.'




Dear lordy me!
I just..
I just..
OH.MY! I love that moment!
