My Swoon for this week comes from:

Lila and Ethan: Forever and Always 
(The Secret #4.5)

Jessica Sorensen

Lila Summers just wants to know one thing for certain: that Ethan Gregory will be with her always. Once her friend, he's become so much more, melting the pain of her past away with each kiss. Now Lila is on a road trip with Ethan, in the wilderness under the stars, and she can't imagine her life without him. But when she talks about the future, something in Ethan changes . . .

Ethan has no doubts about his feelings for Lila. His life with her gets better every day-and that's the scary part. How can he walk into a future where he has everything to lose? With Lila, his whole heart is on the line for the very first time. But if Ethan can't give her the promise she needs, his greatest fear might come true: he'll lose Lila for good.

Second - The Swoon(s):

Swoon 1
He's so sexy, even when he hasn't showered in days. The unshaven face, torn jeans, and wrinkled black T-shirt work so well on him. Plus his tattoos... God he's so gorgeous, all grungy and manly. I could practically have an orgasm just looking at him.

Swoon 2
(A page form Ethan's journal)
Yeah, I love the quiet, but it could never compare to all the moments we've shared together. Fireworks. Arguments. Ponds. Kisses. Sex... God the sex is great. Every conversation with her, good and bad. Every moment, light and dark. I want to relive it over and over again. I want so many more moments and conversations.
I want this to be permanent. I want Lila and I to be permenant.
Forever and always.

After finishing The Temptation of Lila and Ethan, I felt like their story wasn't quite complete. Now having read Lila and Ethan: Forever and Always, I no longer feel that way. A great continuation!
