Swoon Thursday ~ 10/8/20

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.


He’s the biggest jerk in the galaxy.

I can live with being stuck on the far end of space. I can live with having to spend weeks on an abandoned station in an asteroid belt. Sure, I don’t belong, but I’ve got my book and my eight-legged attack cat with me. I should be fine.

I’m not fine.

My alien host, Jerrok, is a jerk. He’s surly and unpleasant. He hasn’t bathed in years. He’s part cyborg - and all those parts seem to be falling to pieces. He’s the one in charge of this remote station, which means we’re forced to interact. It’s an absolutely miserable situation for both of us…

…until I realize that all his anger and bluster is covering the fact that he’s thoughtful and understanding. He’s protective, too, keeping me safe when the bad guys approach. When I get hurt, he’s the one tenderly caring for my wounds.

Jerrok is also intensely, utterly lonely, just like me.

As time passes, I start to wonder…maybe where I belong isn’t a place…but a person.

"You want me to turn them away? I will." 
Sophie blinks at me and then eases into a smile. "You would for me?" 
"Yeah," I say gruffly. "You being comfortable is worth way more to me than some credits for scrap." 
She moved to my side, crossing the long hall just to stand right in front of me. I stay in place, hoping for one of those feather-light kisses, and I'm not disappointed. She puts her hand on my shoulder, indicating I should lean down, and when I do, she pecks at my cheek. "You're very sweet, you know that?" 
"You're the only person that thinks that." 
She tosses me a sassy look over her shoulder. "I'm the only one that matters." 
That she is.

This book has been one of my favorites this year, and it made me SO HAPPY. It's got a grumpy hero and a slower burn that really hit the spot. Plus, this couple is so sweet!

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