My Swoon for this week comes from:


Perfect Kind of Trouble
(Finding Fate #2)
by
Chelsea Fine   



First - The Blurb:


Sometimes when perfect falls apart, a little trouble fixes everything . . . 

Twenty-one-year-old Kayla Turner has lost everything. After spending most of her life taking care of her ailing mother, she just wants to spot a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. So when her late father-a man she barely knew-leaves her an inheritance, she finally breathes a sigh of relief . . . until she learns the inheritance comes with strings. Strings in the form of handsome playboy Daren Ackwood, her father's protégé. To see any of her inheritance, she's forced to team up with him. From his expensive car to those sexy dimples, Kayla's seen his type before. But Daren isn't who he seems to be . . .

Struggling to make amends for his family's mistakes, Daren has a life more Oliver Twist than Richie Rich these days. He's beyond grateful that James Turner included him in his will, but working with Turner's princess of a daughter to fulfill his cryptic last wish is making Daren wonder if being broke is really so bad. Still, she's just as beautiful as she is stubborn, and the more time he spends with Kayla, the less it feels right being without her. Soon Daren and Kayla begin to wonder if maybe the best gift Kayla's dad could have left them . . . was each other.



Second - The Swoon:

"This is why we give into the storm of love. This something that is neither word nor feeling, found in quiet gazes and cookies in the dark. Hidden in cotton candy secrets and gentle shower soapsuds. It creeps up on you and slips inside, and before you know it, love owns you completely. But when it leaves, it rakes you insides, ripping at your soul until you're shredded and undone. then, and only then, do you realize you were in love."



I first met Daren in Best Kind Of Broken. Although we only got glimpses of him, it was obvious that he was mischievous, sexy and totally full of himself. Reading his story in Perfect Kind Of Trouble, I discovered that they were not his only attributes. Sweet, kind, sensitive and compassionate can also be added to the list. Yeah, he's one hell of a guy.

Kayla is strong, level-headed and totally in control of herself. She's easy to connect with and easy to like. When the two of them are thrown together by unexpected circumstances, they think they know each other, but in truth, they don't. Embarking on a scavenger hunt created by Kayla's deceased father in order to receive a shared inheritance, they discover the reality of each others situations and it brings them together in a way that neither one of them anticipated.

I've now read all three books in this series and loved each and everyone of them.

My Rating: 5 out of 5

Waiting on Wednesday #50 ~ Options by Abbi Glines




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.


This week I’m waiting on:


Options
by
Abbi Glines


Expected release date: December 2015



Two paths.
Two completely different roads.
Each one standing before me.
Each one holding a different destiny.

In life you're just supposed to choose one path. 
In life you're not given the chance at choosing one specific future.

Until now.
Until me. 

Why am I different? I don't know. But I'm going to see those roads and walk down each one. When it's over I'll know which one to choose because I'll know my - options.



Hey! It's an Abbi Glines novel. Why wouldn't I be waiting.


So, what are you waiting for?

My Tease for this week comes from:


Every Last Breath
(The Dark Elements #3)
by
Jennifer L. Armentrout  


First - The Blurb:


Some loves will last ’til your dying breath

Every choice has consequences — but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.

Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin — the deadliest of demons — has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city — and her race — from destruction.

Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side — and then fight like hell…



Second - The Tease:

"I covert you like any good demon would." His other hand tightened at the back of my neck. "And my desire for you increases every waking second in a way that should frighten me, but really just excites me. But most of all, I love you," he said, and my entire body jolted at the words. He didn't seem to notice. "I, Astaroth, Crown Prince of Hell, am in love with you, Layla Shaw. Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow. A hundred decades from now, I will still be in love with you, and it will be as fierce today as it will be a decade later."


In true Jennifer style, this is one awesome series, and if you haven't read it yet, then...
What are you waiting for ?!?!
A brilliant conclusion to an awesome series.

My Rating: 5 out of 5

A Long Goodbye
(Southern Comfort #1)
by
Kelly Mooney


Unable to pretend to be the perfect daughter, marry the perfect Southern gentleman, and have perfect babies like her overprotective father expects her to, Ashton Winslow and her best friend, LuLuBelle set out on a two-week vacation to change all that.

Two weeks of freedom is exactly what she craves and needs. Ashton is tired of being told she's perfect, and tired of pretending to be someone she isn't. She wants to reinvent herself, if only for a short time and she hopes Nashville is the place to do it. Preferably with a smooth talking cowboy. 

With no one watching her every move, or so she thinks, Ashton finds the one person who finally sees her for the woman she wants to be. 

Dane Woods has just come home from fighting overseas after losing his best friend. Everyone, including himself expects him to reenlist for another tour, but he can't break a promise he made to his dying friend. 

The last thing Dane has on his mind while tailing a Southern Princess like Ashton Winslow is falling in love. She's supposed to be two week job, but it turns into so much more. 

Will Dane risk everything to be with Ashton or will his lies and betrayal destroy her love for him?

Mockingjay
(The Hunger Games #3)
by
Suzanne Collins 


First - The Blurb:



My name is Katniss Everdeen.
Why am I not dead?
I should be dead.

Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.

It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans--except Katniss.

The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay--no matter what the personal cost.


Second - The Tease:

This week, my tease comes to you in the form of a song - The Hanging Tree






If you've read Mockingjay, and I'm sure many of you have, then you'll understand the significance of this song.

Not quite the ending to this series that I was looking for, but still a good read.

My Rating for Book 3: 4 out of 5

Ransom
(Ransom #1)
by
Rachel Schurig


Daisy Harris has no reason to suspect that her day will be any different than usual. She’ll go to class, alone. She won’t speak or make eye contact. She’ll spend her entire day doing her best to go completely unnoticed. That’s what life is like for Daisy now—an endless cycle of loneliness and fear. A life lived hiding behind the walls she so faithfully maintains. 

Then she sees it. A magazine, left behind in class. A simple picture—just his face. And it changes everything. 

It’s been a year since she’s seen Daltrey Ransome. A year since he and his brothers left town to pursue their dreams of rock and roll superstardom. A year since he left Daisy behind—left her to watch as everything she knew crumbled around her. She’s been running from Daltrey ever since, desperate to keep her secret. 

But she can’t run anymore. And now that Daltrey has found her—the girl he’s loved his entire life, the girl he’d give up everything for—he’s determined never to let her go again. 



So now it's your turn.
