My Swoon for this week comes from:

The Trouble with Goodbye
(Fairhope #1)

by
Sarra Cannon


First - The Blurb:


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.


Second - The Swoon(s):

Swoon 1

I'm breathless as his lips find mine. At first, there is only softness, an inhaling. Time stands still and I lose all sense of anything but the pressure of his lips and the growing flush of heat in my core.

His fingers tense against my jaw and I lean into him. He exhales, his breath warm against my skin. His tongue teases my bottom lip and I open slightly, letting him taste me. Tasting him back.


Swoon 2

"Then we'll take it slow," he says. "I'm going to listen to you and if you need to stop or slow down, or of you're just not ready yet, I'm okay with that. I'll never judge you, Leigh Anne. You don't ever have to worry about what I think of you or how I feel about you, because right now and for the rest of my life, I am going to love you with all that I am."
... Knox


I picked up The Trouble with Goodbye from amazon quite a few months ago not sure when I would get around to reading it. As you can see, it finally made it's way to the top of my TBR pile and all I can say is... why the heck did I wait so long.

It's an amazing story and touches on some very real issues. I loved the chemistry between Leigh Anne and Knox. They have both been through some very difficult times and deserve to have a HEA.

My Rating: 5 out of 5

Pick it up! It's Free on Amazon.

My Tease for this week comes from:

Winter
(Four Seasons #1)

by
Nikita Rae


First - The Blurb:



A girl with a dark history…

Avery Bresllin took a leap of faith when she changed her name. As Avery Patterson, she is no longer the daughter of a serial killer. No longer the girl who was bullied and abused through high school. A fresh name and a fresh start at Columbia University means Avery can leave all that behind. There’s only one thing marring her dream of a clean slate…. 

A boy with a past of his own…

Luke Reid has a lot going for him: sex appeal, badass tattoos and insane musical talent. Despite his guitar skills, his calling in life has always been to serve and protect. A NYPD cop by day, singer in rock band D.M.F by night, from the outside Luke seems like he’s got it made. But falling for a girl whose father was accused of deeply sinister acts—a man whom Luke shared a devastating history with, himself—only serves to complicated things. 

Pieces of a puzzle….

Four symbols, four methods of destruction. 

A trade. 

Borrowed wings. 

Dark secrets that threaten to destroy



Second - The Tease:

The moment he gives in is like a wall crumbling between us. A fierce intensity changes the way he looks at me. Concern and uncertainty transform into hunger. He growls and sits up to crush his mouth to mine. My head spins as he wrestles with the bottom of my shirt; he rips it clean off and presses his powerful hands into my back so that I fall forward against him. His fingers work quickly at the clasp of my bra and I claw the straps over my shoulders in my hurry to get it off.

"This is such a bad f***ing idea," he says, his voice hoarse. "I don't want you to hate me."

"I'm not going to hate you, Luke. I need you. I need you right now."


Luke is an amazing guy. He's sensitive, caring and he adores Avery with a passion.


"The first thing you should know is that I'm in love with you, Avery. You know I am."



I can sum this up pretty quick. This is an amazing read. Definitely one to add to your TBR pile if you're into New Adult Contemporary.

'Sad face' - Book 2 - Summer - isn't due for release until November 2014.

(Home #1)

by
Megan Nugen Isbell




17-year-old Riley Regas has spent her entire life in Boston, so when she learns she’ll be picking up and moving to her mother’s childhood home of Carver, Kansas, she is less than thrilled. In fact, she is downright furious. Riley’s only visited Carver a handful of times. She barely knows her family that lives there and she has no desire to spend her senior year among the backward, simpleminded residents of Carver. 

Reluctantly though, her views begin to change, despite her encounters with Adrienne, a girl Riley quickly realizes is determined to make her life miserable, when she meets Alex Bettencourt. Alex is popular and gorgeous and Riley’s never seen brown eyes quite like his before. 

While Riley couldn’t be happier, she knows Jesse, her best friend in Carver, isn’t sure of her new relationship with Alex. She soon finds a balance between Alex and her friends though and life in Carver doesn’t seem so bad after all, even if her relationship with her mother is rocky at best. 

Just when Riley thinks she might be happy in Carver, a single decision changes it all, leaving her to find out who she really is and who matters most in her life before she loses everything.

Swoon Thursday #103 ~ Love Is Relative (Defining Love #1) by Haven Francis

Here's how it works. From the book you're currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOONWhat got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.

My Swoon for this week comes from:

Love Is Relative
(Defining Love #1)

by
Haven Francis


First - The Blurb:


Contains adult content. Suited for ages 17 and up

LOVE IS RELATIVE (Defining Love, Book One) 

When the one thing they want is the only thing they can't have, how far will Danny and Emily go to convince themselves that love is all that matters, even if it’s forbidden? 

When Emily Winters returns home she thinks she knows what she's getting into. She's had three years to accept the fact that her former best friend/ love of her life/ boyfriend of exactly one day, Danny Donovan, is no longer any of those things to her. 

In fact there is a good chance he hates her. There is an even better chance that he is her half-brother. 

She thinks she knows what she is coming home to, but what she finds is the utter devastation that Danny's life has become thanks to the chain of events that Emily's mother set in motion three years ago. Danny has lost everything and Emily doesn't recognize the cold-hearted bad boy that Danny has become. 

She can only resist his temptation for so long before the line that separates right from wrong becomes blurry and negotiable as she and Danny try to navigate around it. 

When life in the small town of River Bluff becomes too much to handle, Danny and Emily are finally forced to deal, not only with their present, but also their past. When the truth of their sibling status is revealed will it tear them apart or allow them to finally be together in the only way they know how? 


Second - The Swoon:

"Oh, God," he murmurs against my lips before taking the bottom one in his. It hurts; the pressure inside of me, his wet lips on mine. My hand moves to his hair and I have to fight to not pull too hard. His hand moves to the back of my neck and pulls me deeper into the his mouth. His tongue pushes against mine, I push right back. I can't get deep enough; I can't get enough of him. He hardens against my leg and I feel my moan all the way to the pit of my stomach. This feels so painfully good. Our mouths inside of each others feels so unfairly perfect.



Okay, I'm on the fence with this one. There were parts I liked. And parts I didn't. Without giving away any spoilers, that's all I can give you folks! I'll leave it to you to judge this one for yourselves.

My Tease for this week comes from:

Kiss of Fire
(Imdalind #1)

by
Rebecca Ethington


First - The Blurb:


Joclyn Despain has been marred by a brand on her skin. She doesn't know why the mark appeared on her neck, but she doesn't want anyone to see it, including her best friend Ryland, who knows everything else about her. The scar is the reason she hides herself behind baggy clothes, and won't let the idea of kissing Ryland enter her mind, no matter how much she wants to.
The scar is the reason she is being hunted.

If only she knew that she was.

If only she had known that the cursed stone her estranged father sent for her 16th birthday would trigger a change in her. Now, she is being stalked by a tall blonde man, and is miraculously throwing her high school bully ten feet in the air.

Joclyn attempts to find some answers and the courage to follow her heart. When Ryland finds her scar; only he knows what it means, and who will kill her because of it.


Second - The Tease:

I'm in so much trouble, aren't I?" His warm breath tickled my ear as he whispered to me.

My heart sputtered. "You have no idea."

"Then, I might as well do this thing thoroughly." He set me down again and kissed my jaw line. His lips lingered for a second longer than they should have, freezing me into place. I just hoped I didn't look too much like a deer stuck in headlights.


Kiss of Fire started off slow but picked up pace after the halfway mark. I enjoyed the story line but would have liked to see a little more romance between Jos and Ryland. It was hinted at but never seemed to progress very far.
