My Swoon for this week comes from:

(The Barker Triplets #1)

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.
