Swoon Thursday ~ 4/30/15

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's your lucky number?

Lyla Wilder is done being the shy, chemistry nerd extraordinaire. While every other college student is out having fun, Lyla is studying. With her cat. Well, she's played it "safe" quite enough, thank you. So she creates a "College Bucket List"―with item #7 being a night of uninhibited, mind-blowing sex...

But she needs some help from her man-whore best friend.

Hockey player Beck Davenport thought Lyla's transformation would be subtle. Man, was he wrong. With every item she ticks off, Beck finds himself growing seriously hot for his sweet, brainiac best friend. And if he's not careful, he'll end up risking their friendship in order to convince Lyla that he might just be her lucky #7...

He leaned over me and kissed his way down my neck, over the swell of my breast.  I whimpered when his tongue flicked my nipple.  How embarrassing.  He moved to kiss the other one, a million amazing sensations going through me when he did the same to it.  He slid his hand down my side, over my hip, and then his fingers dipped lower.  (Kindle location 1559)

I adore Beck.  He struggled a little at one point but he's one sexy guy.  And a hockey player, did I mention that?  Love him.

Broken (Broken, #1)Caleb is perfect in every way, almost too perfect and Gwen has never felt so happy. He is hers and she is his. Life can't get much better and their love can't get any stronger. That is until mistakes are made and their world comes crumbling down. She's left alone with no money, no home and a growing person invading her stomach. How will she survive?

Forced to leave culinary school, the job she needs and the home they made together. Gwen finds a knight in the most unlikely source. Caleb's brother Nathan. A complex man with a phobia she doesn't understand and mannerisms that aren't of this day and age, will she be able to melt his seemingly frozen heart and become his friend? Or will he forever push her away and wallow in his loneliness and self loathing?

**Broken is currently FREE at the time of posting. Just a heads up to grab it while you can!**


"There it is," he grins and stops me with his hands on my arms, the contact of his warm palms and fingers against my cold flash sends tingles to places I didn't know existed until now. He turns me to face him, blocking the sun with the back of his head. I look up, almost unable to see him due to the shadow cast between us. 
"There what is?" I purse my lips, trying not to smile. 
"The moment you steal my heart," he announces, his eyes twinkling, his hands remaining on my shoulders.

I'm not going to lie and say Caleb was my favorite character (ha, no), but I must admit that he was quite charming. This quote was the first thing I highlighted in Broken and when I first read it, there was total swooning happening. So sweet! I go into more Caleb detail in my review (which you can see here), but I'm not going to deny the fact that Caleb could be swoon-worthy.

Those are our swoons for this week! What do you think? Do you have a swoon to share? Leave us a comment!
