Swoon Thursday #39

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's pick is from:

Alienated (Alienated #1)
by Melissa Landers
Genre: YA | Sci-Fi | Romance

She cleared her throat again, blushing. "Yeah, why?"

"This'll work better if more of your skin's exposed."

"Nothing. Just stand still, close your eyes, and relax."

She took a deep breath and nodded, then shut her eyes and let her arms hang loosely at her sides.

Aelyx's palms had become clammy, and he wiped them on his jeans, grateful Cara couldn't see how nervous she'd made him. A wave of doubt crested within him. What if she hated it? What if this confirmed that his attraction to her was one-sided?

"What're you waiting for?" she asked.

"Nothing." He stepped forward until their bodies barely touched.

I'm such a horrible tease but, trust very much want to get this book and read what happens from here on. I've just read it over again twice before I typed it up for this post.
