Goodreads Summary:

Cami Broussard has her future all figured out. She'll finish her senior year of high school, then go to work full-time as an apprentice chef in her father's French restaurant, alongside her boyfriend, Luke. But then twenty-year-old ex-Marine Julian Wyatt comes to live with Cami's family while recovering from serious injuries. And suddenly Cami finds herself questioning everything she thought she wanted.

Julian's all attitude, challenges and intense green-brown eyes. But beneath that abrasive exterior is a man who just might be as lost as Cami's starting to feel. And Cami can't stop thinking about him. Talking to him. Wanting to kiss him. He's got her seriously stirred up. Her senior year has just gotten a lot more complicated….

What Made Me Swoon:

"He cradles my head in his hands and kisses me.  Then he moves and my mind trips into the darkness of my closed eyes, into the deep sense and awareness of him as he lifts and fills me; as everything else falls away, is lost to this, for there is only this, him and how he is with me, making each new sensation turn inward and explode inside me.  Cries spill from me as I cling to him, as he grips me, cries out himself and then holds me very still.  When I return to myself, I find I'm still cradled in his arms.  Tears are in my eyes and he kisses them away.  You're so beautiful, he whispers.  Our lips meet, and I'm reminded of it, all of it.  I want more..."  (eARC, pg. 159)
