Swoon Thursday 4-19-12

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!

My swoon this week comes from What a Boy Wants by Nyrae Dawn

And catch this - this book is from a male POV.  Meet Sebastian or Bastian to his friends.

Here's the twitter version:

"It felt like static electricity - the little zap as her tongue tangled with mine."

And then here's the longer bloggy version:

"When she pulled her arms up and wrapped them around my neck and I felt her body press against mine, everything inside of me started to pop and explode.  I teased her lips with my tongue, and she opened up to let me inside.  It felt like static electricity -- the little zap as her tongue tangled with mine.  When she weaved her fingers through the back of my hair, I moaned."  kindle location 1517

That's him on the cover! Quite a hotty wouldn't ya say?  I always fall for the dark haired ones.  Always have been. *sigh*

So tell me what you think of my swoon this week.  Leave me a comment and let me know if you have a swoon this week.


  1. Ahh! That is definitely swoon worthy, and I'm totally there with you. It's always the dark haired ones. I just added this book to my TBR list, great pick!

  2. Hey Val!

    I saw you mention this on twitter the other day and I immediately added it on my list! Now that you've down a swoon worthy post on it, well, I'm even more convinced! I NEED this book! It's just, WOW. I have a feeling I'm going to love it like no other!! And that quote!? GEEZ. Talk about super hotness right there. ;)

  3. Ohh total swoon!! That sounds super hot!! Umm running off to add this to my TBR list now!!

  4. I just added this on my TBR list a few days ago and cannot wait to read it! Wow. :)

  5. Very Nice Swoon, not many from a males POV. Thanks so much for sharing this super steamy scene:D

    Here's My SWOON

  6. OMG! I love it! I bought this book after seeing your post on Creative Reads. I wasn't sure when I was going to be able to get to it (too many books!), but it has just jumped higher on the TBR! And you know I like the dark haired ones too :-)

  7. Sebastian is totally SWOON-WORTHY!!! Love him :)

  8. Hey, ladies. Bastian here. Nyrae tried to keep it from me that this post was up, but she's not very good at keeping secrets. Like I told Aspen, she can't help it that I'm stealthy like a ninja.

    I'm kind of embarrased Nyrae let you guys in my head like that. Seriously though. My girl has skills so it was impossible not to respond like that to our first kiss.

    Crap. Nyrae's coming. Gotta get off her laptop.


    1. Bahahahaa!!!!! You're one cool cat Sebastian. ;) Call me!

    2. S'up Sebastian,

      I read your story JUST last night so I know all about you & your "doctorly" ways. *winks* I'd have to agree that you're a great swoon worthy pic. ;D

  9. How cool is that (above comment)?! Just sayin... :-)

  10. Bastian here.

    Jen... Mary... are you guys trying to get me in trouble here? though I agree... it is a pretty good picture of me.

    *Dodges Aspen's fist on my left before blocking Nyrae's on my right*

    I'm kidding... I'm kidding! Kind of... Though I am pretty quick, huh? Did you see those ninja skills?

    Seriously. Thanks though, ladies. You all rock.

  11. SA-woon. I just bought this book today. Dying to get started!

  12. awesome post chica :) Yes, very swoony worthy indeed!
