Swoon Thursday ~ 4/3/14

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!

 I used to be “Isabel Jenkins, child prodigy.” As lame as that sounds, at least it was an identity. But now I’m not sure what I am. I just failed the most important exam of my life—the emotional readiness test required to get into a medical residency program—and it turns out my parents can’t stand each other. Now I’m trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces of my life, and that means re-enrolling as a college freshman, but this time I’m shutting the books and majoring in being eighteen.

But so far, my roommate hates me and I’m not into the party scene. The only good thing about school has been getting to know my insanely hot RA. Marshall Collins makes me wonder about everything I missed while I was growing up too fast. Pretty soon we’re hanging out constantly, but for the first time, I find myself wanting more than a no-strings-attached physical relationship. And the lesson I really need is one Marsh definitely can’t teach me: love. Because I’m going to be alone forever if I don’t learn fast.

 Meet Izzy and Marsh!

The second I absorb the feel of his lips on mine, it's like a giant knot inside my unwinds.  I reach for his shirt, tangling my fingers in it, pulling him to me.  Our lips part and his tongue is in my mouth.  My eyelids flutter shut and I fall hard into this feeling.  Two minutes ago I'd wanted to punch him, and now I can't get enough of the softness of his mouth, the strength of his arms around me, the scent of soap and deodorant, the annoying weight of our clothes between us.  (Kindle location 1521)

Liking this one so far.  Let you know more about that later.  What do you think?  Have a swoon for me?  Leave a comment.
