My Swoon for this week comes from:

Impossibly Love

Shane Morgan

First - The Blurb:

All 19 year old Moya Douglas wants to do is study hard, maintain her scholarship, and make her mother proud while attending college. She doesn't have time for a boyfriend or going on dates arranged by her best friend. Moya doesn't believe in love. And she has no intention of ever finding it. 

Branden McCarthy is determined to change her views.
A selfless romantic who's had his heart broken in the past, Branden is fascinated with Moya's personality and hopes to develop something real with her—a connection so strong it'll open her heart. But just when things start to work between the two, Branden’s secret threatens to get in the way.

Will Moya finally do the impossible and give love a chance with Branden, or will fear keep them apart?

New Adult novel about finding love and oneself

Second - The Swoon:

I blew hard, eager to drown myself in the sweetness of her lips. Dismissing her protest - and the little voice at the back of my head telling me not to - I shoved my mouth to hers and kissed her hungrily.

Moya lifted her hands to my chest and pushed tentatively, and just as fast they began to lower. I knew she couldn't resist the deep passion evoking between us. Finally, she yielded and I wrapped my arms even tighter around her as Moya parted her lips and allowed me to enter.

We groaned as our tongues collided, touching each other wildly as if the kiss was not only our first but our last.

Third - My Thoughts:

Before I reveal my thoughts, I would just like to thank Shane for giving me the opportunity to read and review her novel ~ Impossibly Love. It is a romantic read which tugs on your heart strings.

So where to begin? Let me start by introducing the two main characters, Moya Douglas and Branden McCarthy. Moya is beautiful, intelligent, strong minded and fiercely independent. A second year college student, she spends much of her time studying and has no desire to enter a relationship with a member from the opposite sex (mainly, because she is afraid of getting hurt).

Branden, with his big blue eyes, is cute, kind, caring and not afraid to show his feelings. Right from the start, it is apparent he likes Moya and would like to be more than just friends. Although Moya tries really hard to evade Branden’s advances, eventually, his persuasive nature is too much and she agrees to a date. As their love begins to blossom, things are suddenly brought to a screeching halt as a secret Branden has been keeping from Moya rises to the surface.

Impossibly Love is told alternately from both Moya and Branden’s POV, thereby, allowing the reader to get into both their heads. It’s a NA Contemporary Romance without a whole lot of swearing or sex (which was kind of refreshing). It is a sweet romance filled with emotional ups and down.

Shane’s writing style is clear and easy to read making it possible to connect with the characters. I really enjoyed Impossibly Love and am looking forward to Book #2.

My Rating: 5 out of 5

Expected Release Date: October 29th, 2013
