Swoon Thursday ~ 11/19/15

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!

Drop of Doubt (The Ghost Bird, #5)Sang Sorenson and the Academy boys return to Ashley Waters High School but before they get a chance to even settle in, Sang’s life is threatened by an anonymous caller.

They retreat to the protective walls of the Morgan estate, a safe house for when the boys are under fire. But when new threats can break through those barriers that once kept them secure, it leaves Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North rushing to figure out who is hunting them.

But when you’re fighting a ghost who seems to know all your secrets, retreating is no longer an option.

The Academy, Deceptively Strategic


Flames erupted across my skin, zoomed from his kiss, bearing down into my heart. 
A shiver lit up my insides. I inhaled sharply against him. My fingers curled against his chest, gripping the shirt. I tugged him tighter toward me, silently begging for more. I simply didn't know how to ask out loud. 
His hands traced up my back to my cheeks, palms warming my skin. He held me still, and his lips met my brow again. He traced his lips across my temple, his thumbs smoothed over the crests of my cheeks. Victor seemed to understand, and I wondered how he knew.

And now here's another because I just cannot help myself...

He laughed softly. "You can't cry because I'm being nice. That's not fair." He pressed his face against the top of my head. "Sang. You're a dream. I can't believe we got so lucky to find you." 
"I mean it," he said. He held his cheek to my forehead. "I kept thinking about that day I jumped on you in Kota's bed. I wonder sometimes if I hadn't done that, maybe he never would have told me about you. God, you're so little. I don't know how I thought it was Kota. And you were so cute and you've got those big green eyes that look so lost sometimes. I thought for sure we'd scare you off with our group. We're always so loud and rough. I'm always wondering if one day you'll wake up and realize how messed up we are and want to leave."
"I don't want to leave," I whispered.

LOVE. SO MUCH LOVE. I just finished this book and dear goodness, I am SO jumping right into the next one. THIS SERIES MAKES ME SO HAPPY.

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


  1. Oh those swoons! Your flailing over this series has me so curious!

  2. I have a soft side for all guys named Victor. This one sounds particularly dreamy! I hope she didn't leave. ;)
