Swoon Thursday (6)

Hosted by YA Bound
Hector by Elizabeth Reyes



The Rules of Swoon Thursday:


"From the book you are 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.  Try to make the Swoon 140 characters so you can tweet it.  Add the #YABOUND hashtag when you tweet."



Goodreads Summary:


Womanizer—check. 
Cocky—check. 
Dangerous—checkmate.

Staying away from him was indisputably the sensible thing to do. The problem? She wasn’t just drawn to him; she was utterly mesmerized... Coming soon!

Charlotte Brennan is no stranger to heartache and mortification. Her past is full of both. So when amazing and incredibly intense Hector Ayala, literally jumps into Charlee’s life, her walls are immediately up. Letting her guard down and sharing her past and deepest secret is not happening. Charlee is not looking to get her heart crushed once again. However, her willpower proves to be no match for Hector’s mesmerizing pull.

Guilt is a profound emotion to deal with and no one knows this better than Hector. So when he gets the chance to make up for a past indiscretion that’s been gnawing away at him for months, he takes it. Doing so means he’ll also have to pass up pursuing Charlee, the only girl he’s ever been so fascinated by. But his inability to explain why they could never be has him dealing with a new kind of
guilt—the guilt of knowing he is unwillingly breaking her heart.



What Made Me Swoon:



"Dropping her hand from his chest, and then bringing it around his neck, she kissed him and gave into him completely again.  Groaning, he kissed her as deeply as he had the very first time, feeling utterly crazed again.  Every time they stopped for air, they were both panting now as if they'd both had a very long drink of water-an incredibly delicious taste of water after days of going without.  Coming up again, he had to laugh a little.  This was insane.  She laughed too, biting her lower lip.  You're beautiful.  The words flew out of his mouth before he could catch himself."  (Kindle Loc.  2465)



              What did you swoon over this week?
