Swoon Thursday (13): Tiger Lily and Breaking Beautiful

Apparently it's been a while since I did one of these. I've got two swoons for you this week. 

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
The light was trickling down on her in two narrow slices, and as his hands moved to boost her he brought his face to her neck, almost as if he was bumping into her by accident, only he kissed the skin of her neck, just quickly.
--Pg 112 of an ARC of "Tiger Lily" by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Peter Pan is the "he" in that passage and the girl is Tiger Lily. This is one of the rare tender moments between them that was just too beautiful not to swoon over. I loved this book from top to bottom. This is most definitely one to swoon over!

Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf
We're barely moving, leaning into each other, breathing together, my forehead against his cheek, his had tracing little circles on my back. After a few minutes he pulls back and looks into my eyes, clears his throat, swallows, clears it again. "There's something I've been wanting to--" --he breathes in-- "something I've been meaning to tell you."
--Pg. 259 of an ARC of "Breaking Beautiful" by Jennifer Wolf Shaw

This book was exactly like I want all romances to be. It was slow and steady, something undeniable that built up and made your fingers and toes tingle. I loved the two characters in Breaking Beautiful. There were so many swoon worthy moments in this one!
