My Swoon for this week comes from:

The Redemption of Callie & Kayden 
(The Coincidence #2)

Jessica Sorensen

First - The Blurb:

The dark secret Kayden has kept hidden for years is out. Worse, he's facing charges for battery. The only way he stands a chance against the charges is if Callie speaks up, something he'll never ask her to do.

Callie knows Kayden is going back to his dark place and desperately wants to save him. But saving him means admitting her secrets aloud. Callie and Kayden are stronger than they think, especially when they're together. Together they move forward, face their demons, and finally start to heal from their traumatic pasts.

Second - The Swoon(s):

A kiss from Callie's POV:

His warm breath feathers against my cheeks and his breathing quickens as his gaze flicks to my lips. "Callie, I..." He drifts toward me and then his mouth crushes urgently against mine. I instantly part my lips and allow his tongue to slip inside as I release a pent-up breath. I've missed this - him - more than I let myself admit. I need him. So much.

And another from Kayden's POV:

When our mouths unite, I can finally breathe again. It's like I've been drowning for the last month, only coming up for air when my lungs are about to burst. But her kiss has brought me to the surface.

"Kayden," she murmurs as she grips handfuls of my shirt. "Oh my God."

I slip my tongue inside her mouth and she opens her lips to let me in deeply. I devour her, realizing how starved I've felt over the past month.

The Redemption of Callie and Kayden is a direct follow on from The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden. And just like book 1, it is a intense and highly emotional read. Definitely not one for the faint hearted.
