Swoon Thursday ~ 12/31/15

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!

With Every Heartbeat (Forbidden Men, #4)I used to think everything was black and white, truth or lie, easy or hard, that if I could just escape my strict, overbearing, abusive father, my life would be perfect. But since I’ve found a reason to risk his wrath and leave, to help a friend in need, I’ve come to realize everything I thought I knew is wrong.

Friends have their own agenda, honesty comes with a dosage of lie, easy doesn’t even exist, keeping secrets sucks, and is the most painful thing of all.

Maybe if Quinn Hamilton hadn’t asked me to skip classes for the day and help him pick out an engagement ring for my best friend, I wouldn’t have fallen for him so completely on that sunny Tuesday afternoon and I wouldn’t feel so conflicted. But I did, and I can’t take it back, no matter how hard I try. So I have to deal with the fact that even I’m not as good, or honest, or caring as I’d always thought I was, and no matter what I do next, someone’s going to get hurt. Probably me.

*Don't worry! The hero and heroine are not cheaters.*


"Quinn," she murmured sleepily. 
I kissed her hair and stroked her back. "I'm here." 
"Love you," she mumbled sleepily. I don't know if she was still too asleep to know what she was saying or if she honestly knew she was talking to me. But the words moved through me anyway.  
"I love you too. With every beat of my heart, I am yours, Zoey Alaina Blakeland. And I'm so sorry for everything."

Quinn and Zoey are the freaking SWEETEST. They're both quiet, kind people and they make the most adorable couple. I love them so much!

That's our swoon for this week! What do you think? Do you have a swoon to share? Leave us a comment and link us up!


  1. What a swoon worthy moment. I like that the blurb says they aren't cheaters- I don't really like cheating books.
