Swoon Thursday (3) - Valentine's Day special

SWOON is a weekly meme hosted by YA Bound.
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. 

Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on your blog. We want to know!


Since it's Valintine's Day today, I thought I would do something special in this SWOON. So I've collected some of my favourite quotes from my favourite book boyfriends to share with you. Be ready to swoon!
Deity (Covenant, #3)
Aiden St. Delphi in Deity
“Because I love you, we share each other’s problems. When we fight, we fight together. I’m going to be by your side no matter what, whether you like it or not. That’s what love is, Alex. You never have to face anything alone again.” 

“You’ll have a piece of my heart – all of it, really. Forever.” 

Obsidian (Lux, #1)Daemon Black in Obsidian
“If she was mine, I'd cherish every inch of her. And I wanted to. Now.” 

“I've always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unaware of their effect." His eyes searched mine intently, and for a moment we stood there toe to toe. "The ones who throw their beauty around, waste what they have? Their beauty is only passing. It's just a shell hiding nothing but shadows and emptiness.” 

Adrian Ivashkov in The Golden Lily
Bloodlines (Bloodlines, #1)“I tried to be a better person for her– but it was to impress her, to get her to want me. But when I’m around you, I want to be better because… well, because it feels right. Because I want to. You make me want to become something greater than myself. I want to excel. You inspire me in every act, every word, every glance. I look at you, and you’re like… like light made into flesh. […] You have no clue how beautiful you are or how brightly you shine.” 

“You need me? You yell. You want to leave? We go. I'll get you out of here, no matter what.” 

“My name is Ashallyn'darkmyr Tallyn, third son of the Unseelie Court...Let it be known--from this day forth, I vow to protect Meghan Chase, daughter of the Summer King, with my sword, my honor, and my life. Her desires are mine. Her wishes are mine. Should even the world stand against her, my blade will be at her side. And should it fail to protect her, let my own existence be forfeit. This I swear, on my honor, my True Name, and my life. From this day on..." His voice went even softer, but I still heard it as though he whispered it into my ear. "I am yours.”

“You are my heart, my life, my entire existence." 
Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)
James Carstairs in Clockwork Prince
“I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you.” 

Who are you swooning over today? Leave a link to below and let me know!
