Swoon Thursday ~ 9/26/13

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!

Did you miss me last week?

I was sad I didn't get to post a swoon last week but I was crazy busy!

Making up for it this week!

*new adult romance*
**explicit scenes and language**

I don’t care what my cousin says; I am not the queen of impossible relationships. I mean, just because my last boyfriend tried to kill me and left a bit of a scar on my neck, then forced me to move across the country and legally change my name to Reese Randall to escape him, does not mean—

Oh, who am I kidding? For a freshman in college, I have to have the worst dating track record ever.

It’s no wonder love is the last thing on my mind when Mason Lowe enters my life. But the chemistry between us is like bam! Our connection defies logic. And he’s just so freaking hot. Being around him makes me feel more alive than I’ve ever felt before. I even like bickering with him. He could be my soul mate...except for one teeny tiny glitch.

He's a gigolo.

Boy, do I know how to pick them.

 My lips parted and my entire body throbbed.  "Mason?" I said slowly, my voice timid.  "What're you doing?"

"Something I probably shouldn't." His voice sounded hoarse and tender as he dipped his face and pressed his forehead against mine.

I began to tremble.  I don't know if it was because of anticipation, utter excitement, dread, or outright fear.  "If...if you shouldn't, then...don't."

A throaty whimper like a wounded cougar tore from his voice box.  "Easier said than done."  With his fingers slipping through my hair, he curled his hand around to the back of my neck, urging my face up, probably to align me into position for a kiss.

Then he whispered my name.

God, the achy, husky way he said it was like a silken caress to every erogenous nerve in my body. (Kindle Location 1598)

 Yeah, Mason is a hottie!  What you think of him?  Have a swoon for me?  Leave a comment.
