Swoon Thursday ~ 8/25/16

Who doesn't LOVE a good swoon?!  We love them for sure!  Check out our swoon below and then add to the fun.

Post anything that made you swoon, past or present read.  Include the cover, blurb and links.  Please no spoilers.

After getting dumped, the last thing I needed was to move next door to someone who reminded me of my ex-boyfriend, Elec.

Damien was a hotter version of my ex.

The neighbor I’d dubbed “Angry Artist” also had two massive dogs that kept me up with their barking.

He wanted nothing to do with me. Or so I thought until one night I heard laughter coming through an apparent hole in my bedroom wall.

Damien had been listening to all of my phone sessions with my therapist.

The sexy artist next door now knew all of my deepest secrets and insecurities.

We got to talking.

He set me straight with tips to get over my breakup.

He became a good friend, but Damien made it clear that he couldn’t be anything more.

Problem was, I was falling hard for him anyway. And as much as he pushed me away, I knew he felt the same…because his heartbeat didn’t lie.

I thought my heart had been broken by Elec, but it was alive and beating harder than ever for Damien.

I just hoped he wouldn’t shatter it for good.


He broke the kiss and spoke over my swollen lips, "You're perfect for me, baby.  I always knew that, never doubted it."  (Kindle location 2761)

I adore Damien.  Yeah, he has a bit of angry artist going on and it took a really long time to figure him out but he's adorable.  Five star review coming. 

Furious RushToo fast, too furious-and way too hot to handle . . .

Mackenzie Cox has a lot to prove. Daughter of a racing legend, she is eager to show the world that she has inherited her father's talent in the male-dominated sport of professional motorcycle racing. The last thing Kenzie needs is to be antagonized by her rival team's newest rider, Hayden Hayes. Plucked from the world of illegal street racing, Hayden immediately gets under Kenzie's skin. His insinuations that Kenzie is a spoiled princess who was handed her career fuels her desire to win, and much to her surprise, Kenzie soon learns she performs better when she's racing against Hayden.

As Kenzie and Hayden push each other on the track, the electric energy between them off the track shifts into an intense--and strictly forbidden--attraction. The only rule between their two ultra-competitive teams is zero contact. Kenzie always does her best to play by the rules, but when her team slips into a financial crisis, she has no choice but to turn to Hayden for help. The tension simmers during their secret, late-night rendezvous, but Kenzie has too much to lose to give in to her desires. Especially when she begins to doubt that Hayden has completely left his street life behind...


Smiling wider, Hayden said, "I love you for everything you are, and everything you do. And I understand it doesn't change anything. In our case, love might not be enough. But that doesn't alter the fact that I feel that way, and neither does not telling you that I feel that way. Keeping the feelings to myself won't save us any pain. Nothing will save us, Kenzie. We're doomed. And I love you. And I don't regret a thing."

Ah, Hayden and his words. <3

That's our swoon this week! What about you? Leave us a comment & a link.


  1. Both of those swoons are great! Neighbor Dearest has really caught my eye.

  2. Elec, what an interesting name! I love that tiny snippet. And OMG! I want to read this new Stephens book. That's a cute excerpt. :D Wonderful swoon choice, Val!

    Have a fabulous day. =)
