Swoon Thursday: My Funny First Kiss Edition!

Swoon Thursday is a weekly event hosted by YA Bound.

 Here's what you do:

From the book you're currently reading, or one you just finished, tell me 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 button above and share it on your blog.

     "I let myself move into the electric space between us, feeling like there actually is a zombie apocalypse and we're the last people on Earth and dammit, why won't he just kiss me already?
     And then he does.
     This is what I will always remember about my first kiss:
  • Soft lips and the taste of Pepsi and cinnamon.
  • Patrick's firm, gentle hands snaking through my hair.
  • The faraway sound of mariachi music, from a house up the street 
  • Warm honey filling every cold, lonely, confused, scared place inside me
     He pulls back for a minute, and I can't help it, I say, 'That was my first kiss.' 
     He grins, this goofy sort of delighted smile that makes me not feel so dumb for telling him.
     He says, 'It would be wrong to leave it at just one, then."
     I nod and he's kissing me again, and this kiss lasts longer and for awhile I feel like I've become a long term visitor on Planet Ahhh."
pg. 113 (HC)
