My first Swoon is from Evernight by Claudia Gray
"You know I'm only looking out for you, right?" he whispered. I could feel his lips brushing against my forehead. "I want to keep you safe."
"I don't need you to protect me from danger, Lucus." I slipped my arms around his waist and hugged him tightly. "I need you to protect me from being lonely. Don't fight for me. Be with me. That's what I need."
He laughed, a strange, sad sound. "You need somebody to look out for you. Make sure everything's okay. I want to be that guy."
I lifted my face to his. We were so close that my eyelashes brushed his chin, and I could feel the warmth of body heat in the small space between our mouths. It took all my courage to say, "Lucus, all I need is you."
Lucus touched my cheek, then brushed his lips against mine. That first touch stole my breath, but I already knew that I wasn't afraid any longer. I was with Lucus and nothing could ever hurt me.
So, did Lucus steal your breath too!
