For the Love of Swoon Hop



The Book Hookup & I Am A Reader,  Not A Writer


Win A Signed Copy of Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks


Goodreads Summary:


When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family.

But even as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that still haunts and terrifies her . . . a past that set her on a fearful, shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of Southport. With Jo’s empathic and stubborn support, Katie eventually realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one of riskier rewards . . . and that in the darkest hour, love is the only true safe haven.

  5. A book that made me swoon was On Dublin Street by Samantha Young. It could be because the character in the book is a Brit.

  8. A book that made me swoon would have to be From Ashes by Molly McAdams because he learns of her past and will do anything to protect her. Nothing is more swoon worthy to me than a man willing to do anything to protect the woman he loves.

    Thanks for this giveaway! I have been dying to read this book!!

  12. Thanks for the giveaway! I love to read books about absolutely swoony male heroes. My favorite swoon-worthy book is probably "Beautiful Disaster" featuring Travis!! Travis is complex, moody, passionate, beautifully physical and completely and totally swoon-worthy.
    Happy V-Day!
