Swoon Thursday ~ 6/19/14

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!

Making Waves by Ophelia London

She’s in over her head and he’s in hot water…

Visiting her friends Ellie and Charlie in Hawaii was supposed to be a much-needed vacation for journalist Justine Simms. But when she learns the notoriously reclusive pro-surfer Chase Ryder is coming out of retirement for a competition, she knows she’s found the perfect exclusive to save her career. Of course, then she learns he’s the gorgeous, secretly nerdy guy who broke her heart a year ago.

Will Davenport—aka Chase Ryder—doesn't do interviews. He keeps his real name out of the papers and doesn’t mix his public life with his private. That is, until the still-heartbroken Justine blackmails him into giving her an exclusive. Seeing Justine, stunningly beautiful as ever, brings back all the feelings he had before. But despite their smoldering attraction, nothing has changed since he had to leave her the first time.


She was shoved up to the rope and was about to received the next high five when Will stopped right in front of her, his brown eyes locking on hers.  He reached out, but not to slap her palm.  Instead, his hand cupped her cheek, then slid behind her neck, pulling her toward him.

His firm lips crashing over hers sent a shockwave of heat from her mouth to her cheeks then out her fingers.  Will's other hand slid under her hair, holding her face in place.  She stumbled forward, searching for some part of him to hold onto.  Her hands found his sides, the slippery material of his wetsuit sopping wet and slick, but she could feel the hard muscles beneath, and she clamped around them.  (Kindle location 261)

Yeah, this boy is full of surprises.  Hehe. Love Will.

What about you?  Have a book boyfriend this week?  Leave me a comment.
