Say it Again Saturday: Wings by Aprilynne Pike

This unique and lovely meme was created by Karin over at Karin's Book Nook blog and here is a little synopsis of what it is all about.
"Say It Again” Saturday was created because…Sometimes when I’m reading a book there are lines that just jump out at me. They make me want to laugh, cry, or just sit and think for a minute. Sometimes the lines are just beautifully written. They are the kind of lines that you want to stop reading, find someone close by, and read the line or passage aloud to them so they can share it with you.
This week my choice is Wings by Aprilynne Pike. I was entranced by this wonderfully fresh and imaginative story that had very engaging characters that I fell in love with.
and this passage is just one of the reasons why
His Bangs were soft, damp tendrils now, hanging down across his forehead. Laurel let her eyes travel the length of him: his soft black breehces tied at the knees, the fitted green shirt hugging his chest, and the summetrical face that was more perfect than any human boy could ever wish for. "You waited for me this long?" she asked in a whisper.
Tamani nodded. "And I'll wait longer. Someday you'll come to Avalon, and when that time comes, I'll show you what I have to offer you in my world, our world. You'll choose me. You'll come home with me." He held her face in his hands.
Tears stung Laurel's eyes. "you don't know that, Tamani."
He licked his lips nervously for just a second before a forced smile cut across his face. "No," he said hoarsely. "I don't." His hands on her face, stone-cold a second ago, now seemed to warm with the heat in his eyes as his thumbs traced her cheek bones. "But I have to believe; I have to hope."
.......
"And I'll wait, Laurel. I'll wait as long as I have to. I have never given up on you." He pressed his lips to her forehead. "And I never will."
ahhh....what a perfect moment...
Don't forget I have a copy of WINGS to give away HERE.
