Swoon Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by YABound!
Here's what you do:
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.
This week I'm swooning over:
Black City (Black City #1) by Elizabeth Richards

So I need to give a tiny bit of a background to fully appreciate this scene that I'm going to type out. And my swoon will more than likely be long because it's going to be a full scene...sort of. But I love it and I'm doing it because it's MY SWOON SO THERE! :P
Natalie is a human and Ash is a half-blood Darkling. Easiest way to explain that is to think of Darklings being similar to a vampire, I mean they're a bit more complicated than that but it'll do. Ash has a human dad and a Darkling mom but still in their world it is now illegal and punishable by death for Darklings and humans to be together period. In the scene that I'm about to share Ash and Nat and some classmates are at cadet training. Ash is being used as a guinea pig for them to see if they can sense and track him. I won't get into explaining and spoiling any of that even further. Just remember these thing.... Dark room playing sort of a hide and seek thing in the pitch black. Ash and Nat aren't allowed to feel things for each other at all.
*Siiiigh* forbidden love :)
Ahhhhhh I'm in love with this book. I just have nothing to say to follow up to that. I have about 100 more pages to go so I'm gonna go get to that. I'm glad I remembered to stop and do this though for tomorr--err today since the part I'm at right now is breaking my heart. Good to remember a happier time! But before I go, let me know what made you swoon this week!
