Swoon Thursday: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1) by Michelle Hodkin

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!

"Have you kissed many boys before?" he asked quietly. His question brought my mind back to focus. I raised an eyebrow. "Boys? That's an assumption."
"How many?" "Why-"

"I am taking that word. You are no longer allowed to use it. How many?"  My cheeks flushed, but my voice was steady as I answered. "One."
 At this, Noah leaned in impossible closer, the slender muscles in his forearm flexing as he bent his elbow to bring himself nearer to me, almost touching. I was heady with the proximity of him and grew legitimately concerned  that my heart might explode. Maybe Noah wasn't asking. I closed my eyes and felt Noah's five o'clock graze my jaw, and the faintest of whisper of his lips at my ear. 
"He was doing it wrong." 

I just loved when he said that! I totally swooned! Love a confident guy ;D
