Swoon Thursday ~ 4/17/14

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!

Make It A Double (Last Call, #2) by Sawyer Bennett

Brody Markham has endured a nightmare, spending the last five years in prison and losing everything that was dear to him. Now he’s back home, trying to survive in a world he doesn’t recognize anymore. While his family and friends desperately try to reach through to him, he shelters himself further and further away from their love.

Alyssa Myers has worked her entire life to distance herself from the luxurious and privileged lifestyle in which she was raised. Running her non-profit agency, The Haven, she is content to spend her days helping abused animals find sanctuary, which fulfills her in a way that money just can’t buy.

Maybe it’s that she recognizes in Brody some of the same characteristics she sees in her homeless wards, but Alyssa is powerless to stop her personal quest to make Brody whole again.

While Brody struggles to surface from the darkness, Alyssa tries to protect her heart in case he’s not willing to accept the light that she offers him.

Then, I'm just feeling.

Because Brody comes to stand right behind me, his huge frame surrounding and towering over me.  He's not touching me in any way, but I feel every inch of him all the same.  He's never stood this close to me...just an inch or two away, and I can almost feel a vibration...a pulse...a pull...whatever, between us.  It's absolutely magnetic, and I have to wonder if he can feel it.

Looking above me, I watch as his tanned arm reaches to the top shelf and easily grabs a can.  Brody hands it down to me, his thumb brushing against my hand as I take it, and f*** if a slight shiver doesn't course down my spine. (Kindle location 1017)
LOVE Brody!  What do you think?  Have a swoon for me?  Leave me a comment.
