My Swoon for this week comes from:

Red at Night

Katie McGarry

First - The Blurb:

In Red at Night, Stella and Jonah are total opposites. She's the girl with purple hair from the wrong part of town. He's a high school senior who hangs with the cool crowd. Until a car accident leaves him haunted by guilt, and Jonah starts spending time at Stella's favorite refuge…the local cemetery.

Stella knows she should keep her distance—after all, she spent her girlhood being bullied by Jonah's friends. Once he's sorted out his tangled emotions, Jonah won't have time for her anymore. Too bad she's already fallen for him….

Second - My Swoon:

Stella also nods, but then starts to shake her head no while licking those beautiful lips. They look soft and I long to find out if they are.

"Jonah," she whispers and those gray eyes plead with me. 

My hand eases from her hip to her face, my thumb brushing against her cheek. Stella leans into me - all soft curves, all feminine, a heat that sparks and smolders at the same time. Her head tilts up as I lower mine and I know the moment our lips touch, any hope I had of returning to my old life will no longer exist.

Red at Night is a short Novella - 84 pages - which can easily be read in one sitting. 
It's a beautiful story which shows that people can change and that love can sometimes be found in the most unusual of places. If you like Katie McGarry's Pushing the Limits series , then I think you will enjoy Red at Night.
