Swoon Thursday ~ 10/2/14

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!


Pretending to be something they’re not, afraid to trust anyone completely, destined to tear each other apart– this is the story of unlikely love and unbearable consequences.

Sig Locke is a cop. He was raised by a cop and all his brothers are cops. He bleeds blue, believes in right and wrong, and sees in black and white, never in shades of gray.

But that was before he met Tommi.

Tommi, with her long legs and bright green eyes, she captured Sig’s interest from the moment he saw her. Even after he discovered who she was–the girlfriend of a drug dealer, the beauty behind a criminal–he still found her utterly irresistible. What Sig doesn’t know, however, is that she has a secret even a cop can’t uncover. 

Tommi Lawrence hasn’t had an easy life, and it only got more complicated the day she met Sig. She learned long ago that she can’t trust anyone. Her gut tells her that Sig is no exception, her heart tells her that he is. But that was before she found out his real identity.

Can love be forged in a fire of lies? Or will the truth destroy them both?

I bend my head slowly, giving one of us time to stop this.  But neither of us does.  And when my lips brush hers for the first time, I know it won't be the last.

Her mouth is soft and warm under mine, pliant.  Willing.  I don't press too hard.  She doesn't back away.  We just meet in the middle.

When she signs, her sweet breath floods my mouth.  It's hard to pull away, but I do.  My face is less than two inches from hers.  I watch as her eyelids flutter open.  The green pools suck me in.  Deep, like a siren that beckons me to follow her down.  Down, down, down. (kindle location 1017) 

*sigh* I so love Sig!  What do you think?  Have a swoon for us?  Leave us a comment. 


  1. Michelle always brings the swoon!

  2. Michelle knows how to write a good swoon! I haven not read one of her books in a while. I like the closeness of these two characters, both physically and emotionally ^_^

    Have a fabulous day, Val :)
