The ladies over at YA Bound created a sexy meme where you share what made you tingle in your current read.

I'm jealous of anybody you smile at that ain't me, he says. He takes a step closer. Reaches out. Runs the back of his hand down my cheek. A hot shiver ripples through me. You look at me with them eyes of yers, he says, an I look at yer lips... an all I can think about is what it 'ud be like to kiss you. You got no idea, do you? You got no idea how beautiful you are.
[...] I go to slip past him an he grabs my hand. Stops me. We're standin close. Too close. Stay, he says.
Before I can stop myself, I look at him. A mistake. Hot silver eyes. Burnin fer me. My heart lurches.
He leans his head down. Stay with me. He whispers it into my ear. Jest fer a while.

I swear, Jack is one hot piece of awesomeness. I don't know how Saba manages to tell herself no time and time again. She's a real stubborn mule, that one. I really, really hope those two will work out in the end, although I have a feeling there might be someone else, someone previously on the enemy side, that could show up and be of interest...

I haven't swooned in forever, but you ladies were so nice still including me in your shout outs. Thank you so much! Now, let's hop and link back and swooooon!

    1. I had a really, really, really hard time getting into Blood Red Road, but I just finished it, and it was so awesome!!! When you get about 1/3 in, it is absolutely worth it. I can't wait to pick up Rebel Heart, it's already waiting on my shelf for me! =)

  1. I've missed you Caro!!!! I'm glad you're back 🙂 I love Post-Apocalyptic type books! Have you read any of the Arcana Chronicles by Kresley Cole? There are 2 out so far, and they are amazing! I love you swoon! I hope she gives in and stops being stubborn! LOL Who can resist a man like that?

    1. Thanks, Lindy. I'm glad to be back! 😉
      The Arcana Chronicles are on my tbr, but I haven't read one of them yet. There's just so much out there that's amazing... Don't know where to start!
      And yes, who could resist a man like that? I can tell you there is another very melting swoon scene later on, it was so hot and cute!

    1. I haven't even thought about that, but you're totally right. It's hot, possessive, and also totally cute (besides the sometimes annoying part). ^^

  2. Gotta love a guy who admits he's jealous lol. Great swoony scenes and great to have you swooning with us again 😉
