Swoon Thursday ~ 8/15/13

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!

If you missed my review, check it out here!

And damned if I know what comes over me, but I can't stop myself from leaning forward.  From cupping her soft check and then pushing my hand through her white-blond hair.  The light glimmers off and then I don't see, don't know anything else, but the feel of her lips as I cover them with mine.

She gives me a startled "Oh" and then opens up so I can slip my tongue inside. My lip ring presses again her mouth.  (Page 140 of ARC)

Out of Play by Nyrae Dawn and Jolene Perry 

Rock star drummer Bishop Riley doesn't have a drug problem. Celebrities—especially ones suffering from anxiety—just need a little help taking the edge off sometimes. After downing a few too many pills, Bishop wakes up in the hospital facing an intervention. If he wants to stay in the band, he’ll have to detox while under house arrest in Seldon, Alaska. 

Hockey player Penny Jones can't imagine a life outside of Seldon. Though she has tons of scholarship offers to all the best schools, the last thing she wants is to leave. Who'll take care of her absentminded gramps? Not her mother, who can’t even be bothered to come home from work, let alone deal with their new tenants next door.

Penny’s not interested in dealing with Bishop’s crappy attitude, and Bishop’s too busy sneaking pills to care. Until he starts hanging out with Gramps and begins to see what he’s been missing. If Bishop wants a chance with the fiery girl next door, he’ll have to admit he has a problem and kick it. Too bad addiction is hard to kick…and Bishop’s about to run out of time.

Really liked this one! What about you? Have a swoon for me? Leave me a comment!
