Swoon Thursday ~ 6/11/15

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!

Sometimes life leaves a mark…

Most days, Andrea doesn’t know whether she wants to kiss Tanner or punch him in the gut. He is seriously hot, with legit bedroom eyes and that firefighter body of his, but he’s a major player, and they can’t get along for more than a handful of minutes. Until now.

Tanner knows he and Andrea have had an epic love/hate relationship for as long as he can remember, but he wants more love than hate from her. He wants her. Now. Tomorrow. But the more he gets to know her, the more it becomes obvious that Andrea has a problem. She’s teetering on the edge and every time he tries to catch her, she slips through his fingers.

Andrea’s life is spiraling out of control, and it doesn’t matter that Tanner wants to save her, because when everything falls apart and she’s speeding toward rock bottom, only she can save herself.

Sometimes life makes you work for that happily ever after…


"I'm glad you didn't want to go hiking.  I like having you all to myself."  He moved one hand off the ledge and it landed on the bare skin of my side, underwater.  I jerked back and came into contact with his large body.  I didn't move.  Not even when his chest rose sharply against my back.  "Are you?"

All thoughts scattered when his hand slid to my hip.  The small stretch of material did nothing to block the feel of the rough callouses on his palm.


My breath shuttered.  "Yeah...yes."  (Page 86)

Oh Tanner, I so love you.  My review posts Saturday and this one is available next week.  You will want it.  It's full of yummy stuff and lots of FEELS.

Trusting Liam (Taking Chances, #2)From the New York Times bestselling author of Taking ChancesFrom Ashes, and Stealing Harper, comes the new unforgettable adult romance Molly McAdams’ fans have been waiting for—the sizzling story of a young woman who must place her trust in the one man who can break through her defenses.

A night they will always remember…a connection neither can deny…a secret that could destroy it all…

When Kennedy Ryan moves to California, she never expects to come face-to-face with Liam Taylor—the intriguing man who has haunted her thoughts for a year. A man who led her to breaking every one of her rules for a single night of passion that ended up meaning more than it was ever supposed to. Accustomed to disastrous experiences with men, Kennedy shields herself before he can break down more of the carefully built control she’s clung to for the last four years. But every time she sees Liam, she feels her resolve weakening.

Liam Taylor has been asked to help socialize his boss’s nieces. But what he thinks sounds more like a babysitting job ends up leading him to the only girl who ever slipped away before morning—a girl he thought he’d never find again. And now that she’s within reach, Liam’s determined to never let her go.

But when a secret from her past tests their relationship, will they be able to cling to the trust Liam has worked so hard to build?


I huffed softly and stood. Grabbing her hand, I pulled her with me and over to the door. Just before I opened it, I turned to face her and waited until her eyes were locked with mine. "No one was ever worth the chase. But you? You will be worth it every time. I will always chase you, Kennedy."

I love Liam and Kennedy together, and I love this book. IT IS SO GREAT, MY FRIENDS. *flails*
