Swoon Thursday (14)

Hosted By YA Bound





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:

When a knee injury ends twenty-year-old Quinn Rowland’s pro tennis career, he’s not only dumped by his hot Russian girlfriend but ordered to attend college by his disinterested billionaire father. A rich kid who’s not used to being disappointed by life, Quinn and his sociopathic half-brother Sebastian create a frat house game intended to treat girls how they see them—as simple game pieces to be manipulated for their pleasure.

College sophomore Emilie Swanson knows Quinn’s reputation—after all, he did send one of her sorority sisters into therapy earlier in the semester—but the game and his charm bring them closer together and soon she starts to believe there’s more to Quinn than people think.

But what if the more is something darker than a game of toying with emotions and breaking hearts?

Quinn and Emilie might be falling for each other, but there are secrets he’s not ready to tell—and lifestyle changes he’s reluctant to make. She willingly stepped on the court, but if Emilie finds out she started out as nothing as a pawn in Quinn and Sebastian’s twisted game, she might never forgive him.

To his surprise, Quinn finds that he might finally care about someone more than he cares about himself…even if that means letting Emilie walk away for good.



What Made Me Swoon:


"Finally I yanked him into an elevator.  As soon as the doors closed and we jerked upward he punched the emergency stop.  The next instant he picked me up and we slammed into the wall as my legs went around his waist, holding on for dear life.  His sweet salty lips were on mine, then they were everywhere, his tongue teasing my jaw and my collarbone.  Quinn gripped the puffy sleeves of my eighties prom dress and yanked, tearing fabric and raining sequins on the carpet until he managed to loosen it enough to push it to my waist.  My bra straps fell off my shoulders, hanging around my elbows as he shoved the last of the fabric out of his way and moved his demanding mouth lower."  (EARC, 71)

  1. I one-clicked this book yesterday :)

    Can't wait to read it after I read your SWOON quote ... Caliente!

    My swoon is Drew from One Week Girlfriend ... Thanks to you Lindy :)

    “But this girl...she doesn’t feel pointless. She’s real and she’s beautiful and she fits perfectly when she’s in my arms. She makes me want to feel.” -Drew

    Awwww!!! <3

    It's really taking all that I have not to read Second Chance Boyfriend at the moment. I don't want their story to end :(

    1. Thanks! I must admit, I really miss Drew and Fable, so I can understand why you're putting off reading, Second Chance Boyfriend. The good news is, Monica, will be writing two more books where she includes Owen, (all grown up). So we get to read his story. The other story will be with characters that you will meet in Second Chance Boyfriend. However, I am hoping that Drew and Fable will be included in both books!
      P.S. I really love your swoon.
