My Swoon is from 'Precious Things' by Stephanie Parent. I haven't started reading Precious Things yet, but I love Stephanie's writing style. "Defy the Stars by Stephanie is one of my favorite reads. So I wanted to do a swoon from her new adult/ new release novel 'Precious Things. I don't know what's going on between Isabelle and Evan in this scene, but after reading this steamy swoon between them, am so ready to find out!

                 Isabelle and Evan swoon! I'm starting the swoon in the middle of the sentence.

....Without quite realizing what I'm doing, I lead him around the side of the house, away from the road and late-night intruders. Evan quickly sees my intention and retakes the lead, backing me up till I'm pressed between him and the side wall. He keeps kissing me as he pushes one of his legs between mine, and I nearly gasp when I feel him, just two layers of fabric between us, against my thigh. I would never, ever do this if I was sober...but I'm definitely not sober, so I grab him, there, outside his jeans.
    Now he's the one who's gasping, pulling his mouth free between kisses to say, "Isabelle-- What are you-- I won't be able to sto--" But even as he speaks he slides his hands downward, across my neck and the line of my collarbone, than lower till he reaches my breasts and cups them firmly in his palms.
