Happy Thursday! Okay, so I just read this and Through the Ever Night and I have to say this swoon from Under the Never Sky was my favourite part of the whole series! Tres swoony!

"I've been watching you and Roar. Wanting it to be me training with you." His shoulders came up. "I don't want to do it now."

"Why? Aria's voice was high and thin.

He smiled, a flash of shyness, before he leaned close.
"There are other things I'd rather do when I'm alone with you."

Time to step off the edge. "Then do them."

His hands came up cradling her chin. Rough skin on one side, soft gauze on the other. He lowered his head and brought his lips to hers. They were warm and softer than she had ever imagined they would be, but not nearly long enough. He backed away from her before she knew it.

Since she'd been on the outside, she'd survived an Aether storm, she'd had a knife held to her throat, and she'd seen men murdered. This was worse.

Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland - known as The Death Shop - are slim. If the cannibals don't get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She's been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He's wild - a savage - and her only hope of staying alive.

A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile - everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria's help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

If you haven't read this series, I'd highly recommend it.. it's a Dystopian but almost not. I really love the tension between the two main characters, the duel POV's, and the constant action. Leave your link in the comment section so I can read your swoon!
