Swoon Thursday ~ 10/17/13

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!

Jenna Theopolis has always known what she wanted. Getting out of her small hometown of Greenfield was number one on her list of priorities. Until she met Rusty Catron.
Rusty’s fun-loving personality was the perfect match for Jenna’s inner wild child. But what started off as a summer fling quickly turns into something more. At least it does for Jenna.

Rusty has lived with the ghost of his father’s abandonment since he was a child, but now he’s beginning to feel the crippling effects of his scars. He wants to trust in Jenna, but deep down he doesn’t believe someone so wild and free can ever be tamed.

But tragedy strikes, pushing Jenna out of Greenfield and leaving Rusty with a choice to make—face his inner demons or lose the love of his life. Forever.

I kick off my shoes, take a deep breath and curl my fingers in the hem of Rusty's shirt.  I pull it up, letting my hands touch his hard, smooth skin as I go.  I can feel every ripple of his abdomen, every hard bulge of his pecs, but I don't give in to my urge to press my lips to them.

I stretch up on my tiptoes to tug his shirt over his head.  He's taller than me, so I have to sway slightly toward him to reach high enough.  My breasts graze his chest and I gasp.  I can't help it.  The sensation of his skin touching my nipples flashes through me like a bolt of lightning, hot and electric.

"Jen-na," he wars gruffly.  (Kindle Location 325)

Never thought two people trying to keep their hands off each other could be so HAWT!  This is one swoon-worthy read!

What about you?  Have a swoon for me?  Leave me a comment.
