Swoon Thursday ~ 5/2/13



The fabulous girls over at YA Bound created this super HOT meme.  Here's how it works.

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! I want to know & so do the chicks at YABound!

What made me swoon this week?  This!



Ryan lowers his lips to my ear. "Dance with me, Beth."

"No." I whisper the reply. I hate him and I hate myself for wanting him to touch me again....

"I dare you..."


If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness. That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does....

Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him.

But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all...




My tank rides up further when Ryan strokes the bare flesh of my stomach.  He angles closer to me and I'm immediately overwhelmed by the size of his body.  My blood tingles with excitement.  "You're soft," he whispers.  I knot my fingers in his hair, guiding his head to mine.  

"You talk too much."
"I do," he agrees and his lips finally meet mine.  It's an innocent kiss at first.  Soft lips meeting; a gentle pressure that creates a slow burn.  (Kindle Location 2221)

*Sigh* Love Ryan.  All you get - know you want more.  Comes out May 28th.  Review coming soon.
