My Swoon for this week comes from:

Enticed
(The Violet Eden Chapters #2)

by
Jessica Shirvington

First - The Blurb:



Every day Violet Eden wonders whether she made the right choice.

She still doesn't fully understand these powers she's been granted as a half-angel Grigori. And worse, isn't even sure she's capable of using them. Stab someone through the heart? Really?

No matter how bad things get, though, Violet doesn't run and she doesn't quit. Even if it means she can never allow herself to love the guy she longs for. Even if it means asking her enemy for help. Even if no one is telling her the truth.

The war between Exiles and Angels is on—and she's wanted by both sides.


Second - My Swoon:

I didn't answer, but - thank the heavens - he didn't wait. His lips, delicious as ever, found safe landing on mine and the second they did, my frozen state melted in the absolute steaminess between us.
I don't know how much time passed. It felt like moments. But somehow my legs had found their way around Lincoln's waist and my back was against the wall. For once, neither one of us pulled away. Even when  we smashed into the bookshelf and cracked it in two. If anything, it made the whole thing better.


I'm really enjoying this series. Lincoln is one swoon worthy guy. And fortunately, I have the next book - Emblaze - waiting in the wings.

My Tease for this week comes from:

Embrace

(The Violet Eden Chapters #1)

by
Jessica Shirvington


First - The Blurb:



It starts with a whisper: “It’s time for you to know who you are…”

Violet Eden dreads her seventeenth birthday. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. As if that wasn’t enough, disturbing dreams haunt her sleep and leave her with very real injuries. There’s a dark tattoo weaving its way up her arms that wasn’t there before. 

Violet is determined to get some answers, but nothing could have prepared her for the truth. The guy she thought she could fall in love with has been keeping his identity a secret: he’s only half-human—oh, and same goes for her.

A centuries-old battle between fallen angels and the protectors of humanity has chosen its new warrior. It’s a fight Violet doesn’t want, but she lives her life by two rules: don’t run and don’t quit. When angels seek vengeance and humans are the warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden…


Second - The Teasers:

Tease 1
“Did you ever think we would be anything other than unbelievable?” 

Tease 2
"Kissing you is.. I tried so hard for so long to deny myself. I tried to do the right thing. But ever since we kissed on your birthday I knew once I started I'd never be able.. even through we can't..” 

Tease 3
I pushed passed him. He grabbed my hand and swung me back towards him. Then he pushed me against the wall and... he kissed me.
He ran his thumb along my jawline and down my throat, hips pinning me to the wall. He kissed me slowly and with intensity, and once I got over the mind-numbing shock and comprehended what was actually happening, it was incredible. I had never been kissed like that before. We melted together. Every movement of mine was somehow perfectly mirrored by his. My heart was pounding so hard I knew he must be able to feel it and I was sure my legs were giving way, but he held me up, pushed me harder against the wall.

Sorry, but once again, I have found it way too difficult to give you only one tease and keep it to 2 sentences. 

And why the two covers?
The one on the right is the version I borrowed from my local library. The one on the left is from Amazon.
Personally, I prefer the one on the left.

Swoon Thursday #86 ~ Offside by Juliana Stone


The fabulous girls over at YA Bound created this super HOT meme.

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:

Offside
(The Barker Triplets #1)

by
Juliana Stone

First - The Blurb:

When hockey phenom Billie-Jo Barker returns home and decides to play in the local Friday night hockey league, all hell breaks loose. Not because Billie's talent is in question, but because Billie is a woman. And though these are modern times, some of the local guys still have a problem letting a girl into their 'men's club.'

Soon, Billie is at the center of a small town battle of the sexes, with everyone choosing sides. Her sisters. The townsfolk. Her friends. And yet, the only person whose opinion she cares about doesn't seem to care much at all. Logan Forest, the man who broke her heart when she was eighteen and the man she now shares the bench with every Friday night.

She's got a lot to prove and though Billie Jo Barker scores on the ice, will this girl ever score with the man of her dreams?




Second - My Swoon:

His subtle, clean scent filled her nostrils and it was the sexiest thing ever. She leaned into him, her eyes never leaving his.
And then she kissed him.
Not a soft butterfly kiss. Not a tentative, getting-to-know-you kind of kiss. But an aggressive, no-holds-barred kind of kiss. Her mouth mouth was open and she moved against him like she was starving. As if he was the only thing in the world that could feed her.


Yeah, once Billie and Logan decide to get together, there are quite a few swoon worthy moments in this book. A sweet read with a lot of sexual tension.

Teaser Tuesday # 85 ~ Allegiant by Veronica Roth


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)

My Tease for this week comes from:

Allegiant

(Divergent #3)

by
Veronica Roth


First - The Blurb:

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories. 

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.







 Second - The Teasers:

Tease 1

“You're not very nice," I say, grinning.
"You're one to talk."
"Hey, I could be nice if I tried."
"Hmm." He taps his chin. "Say something nice, then."
"You're very good-looking."
He smiles, his teeth a flash in this dark. "I like this 'nice' thing.” 

Tease 2

Then his lips are on mine again, and he pulls his shirt out from under my hands so that I am touching his bare skin. I come to life, pressing closer, my hands creeping up his back, sliding over his shoulders. His breaths come faster and so do mine, and I taste the lemon-syrup-fizz we just drank and I smell the wind on his skin and all I want is more, more.


I know many of you are way a head of me on reading this series, so you all know how it ends. For those of you though who haven't read it, well, I don't want to give away any spoilers so I'll just give you my ratings instead.

Divergent: 5 out of 5
Insurgent: 4 out of 5
Allegiant: 4 out of 5

Beyond Control

by

Karice Bolton




Everything in Gabby Sullivan's life is going according to plan--her father's plan. With a brilliant job in the corporate world, glamorous parties, and a beautiful condo overlooking Seattle, she is thrown into a world she doesn't want to claim. It's not until Jason crashes into her world that she realizes she's not really living. 

Facing his own demons, Jason attempts to piece his life back together after a personal tragedy. Damaged by his ghosts, Jason finally begins to forgive himself whenever Gabby's around. She makes him feel--alive, something he hasn't felt for a long time.

It's only as their love grows and secrets are revealed that they realize a devastating connection from their past might actually tear them apart.


I got this one off Amazon a while back. Now I just need to slot it into my reading schedule.
