Swoon Thursday (26)


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:


One night can change everything…


Two years ago, Leigh Anne Davis shocked everyone in tiny Fairhope, Georgia when she broke up with her wealthy boyfriend to attend an Ivy League university a thousand miles away. At school, she finds a happiness and independence she’s never known.



Until one terrifying night takes it all away from her.



With no place else to go, Leigh Anne heads home to reclaim her old life. A life she worked so hard to escape. On the outside, she seems like the same girl everyone has always known. But deep inside, she’s hiding a terrible secret.



That’s when she meets Knox Warner, a troubled newcomer to Fairhope. His eyes have the same haunted look she sees every day in the mirror, and when she’s near him, the rest of the world fades away. But being with Knox would mean disappointing everyone all over again. If she wants to save what’s left of her old life, she has no choice but to say goodbye to him forever.



Only, the trouble with goodbye is that sometimes it’s about courage and sometimes it’s about fear. And sometimes you’’re too broken to know the difference until it’s too late.



What Made Me Swoon:


"I run my fingers along the line of his jaw, then up to his lips.  He groans and shifts slightly, but doesn't wake.  I smile and lean in to kiss his neck.  I kiss him gently, my lips traveling up and down his neck, then across his cheek and jaw.  When my warm lips touch his, his eyes flutter open and meet mine.  My heart skips and I know I have found someone very special.  I know he understands me, and he isn't judging me.  He loves me.  He would never hurt me.  I close my eyes and press my lips to his.  Our kiss deepens and he pulls me fully on top of him.  My hands run through his hair ands he parts his lips and runs his tongue across my bottom lip.  His arms wrap tight around me, pressing our bodies close.  This is what I've been waiting for.  Whatever wall was there between us, holding us back from moving forward, is gone in the new morning light.  I have never felt so close to anyone in my life.  I break free of the kiss and bite his lip, then descend to his chin, his jaw, his neck.  He moans and takes my head in his hands.  I look up to find him looking at me with such passion, it takes my breath away.  I love you, he says.  I feel his words all the way down to the deepest part of my heart.  I love you too."  (eARC, Loc. 1735)
