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:


After getting hurt in college by a gorgeous man, Nicole Magette vowed never to risk losing her heart again. Now she lives a structured and satisfying life. Her work is easy, her friends are her family, and the only consistent men in her life are her two cats, Winchester and Huntington Peabody the Third. She doesn't date, and she hooks up only with losers—men she has absolutely no risk of falling for. But if she finds herself in danger, she has her old fail-safe in place—the Code Red.

In college, she and her four best friends came up with the system as a way to keep away the good-looking bastards that might worm their way past their carefully constructed walls. Seven years later, three of her friends have succumbed to their last Code Reds and are happily married. Now it’s just Nicole and her closest friend, Jen, who are still on their own, and Nic is just fine with that.

That is, until Joshua Daniels is transferred to Nicole’s office from New York and assigned to work with her on a special project. He's everything she's avoided and everything she claims she doesn't want, so why can’t she get him out of her mind? He's persistent, dangerously handsome, and sexy as sin. In other words, he’s her worst nightmare. She turns to her friends to help her resist Josh’s considerable charms and the inescapable draw she feels every time she gets near him. Can the Code Red save her this time, or will Josh send her perfectly balanced life into chaos?



What Made Me Swoon:

"I let my arms drop to the bed but kept my legs around his waist.  He boosted himself up, took the bottom of my tank top in his hands, and kept his eyes locked on mine as he slowly raised it.  Our connection broke only when he tugged it over my head.  There was something incredibly erotic about how he kept staring into my eyes even as he was getting naked.  He looked over my body, and for the first time ever, I had to fight the urge to cover myself.  What if he didn't think I was beautiful now that he could see all of me?  Then he looked into my eyes again, and my mouth went dry when I saw his expression.  My imagination didn't do you justice.  You're stunning.  I blew out a breath of relief just before he kissed me softly, slowly.  He moved his hands over my stomach.  I wanted those hands on me more than I wanted my next breath.  Breathing was highly overrated.  Joshua Daniels was not.  Every inch of my body was tingling, and he was just tracing light circles over my torso."  (EARC LOC. 2521)
