Swoon Thursday ~ 3/12/15

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!

Let your hair down, Caroline, they said. It'll be fun, they said.

I know I've closed myself off in a major way over the past year, ever since “the incident” where I messed up my life completely. It's past time I try to live again or just give up altogether. But this is quite possibly the craziest thing I've ever done. In a last ditch effort to invigorate myself, I'm standing outside Oren Tenning's bedroom, I just peeled off the sexiest pair of underwear I own, and my hand is already raised to knock. My brother would disown me for doing anything with his best friend, and he'd probably kill Oren. But if I play my cards right, no one will ever know about this. Not even Ten.

Maybe after tonight, I’ll finally get over this stupid, irrational crush I hate having on the biggest jerk I’ve ever met. Or maybe I’ll just end up falling for him even harder. Maybe I’ll discover there’s so much more to my crude, carefree hunk than meets the eye., yeah.  I had a late convo with Jess about this last night and well, we each have a swoon for you even though I'm the only one reading this.  Yeah.

Both are from Oren "Ten"'s POV.


The one Jess picked out...

I kissed her silent.  I have no idea how I knew that would work, but shit, it actually did.  She accepted the thrust of my tongue and even kissed me back.  Then she went and wrapped her legs around my waist and dug the heels of her feet into the base of my back as her nails sank into my shoulders.  (Kindle location 1584)

And the one I picked out...

She laughed, and my pulse settled some.  "Don't go," I said more softly and reached out to find her cheek.  Her breath caught and it caused something massive to shift in my chest.  "Stay."  I leaned in to nuzzle my nose up the side of her neck.  "Just a little longer."  (Kindle location 1594)

Yeah, so I'm not supposed to be reading this.  Um...BUT when it arrived on my kindle this week, I was unable to resist it.  As you can see, it is irresistible.  AND yeah, I had to have a convo with Jess about it because...well it's just that good.  And well, I needed to talk about it.  I'm 25% into this book and I'm freaking out...really.

Your thoughts?  Leave us a comment.
