My Swoon for this week comes from:

Up to Me
(The Bad Boys #2)

M. Leighton 

First - The Blurb:

For Olivia, romantic bliss has never felt so right as it does with Cash. Unpredictable, except when it comes to satisfying her desires, Cash’s bad boy reputation is well-earned, but he’s turning his life around with the one woman who accepts him for who he is.

Until strangers from the past turn Olivia and Cash’s world upside down. What they want is something only Cash can give them. And if he doesn’t deliver, then they’re taking the one thing that Cash values the most.

Olivia always knew that in falling for Cash she was likely to get burned. But this new threat is beyond anything she imagined. Now she has to trust Cash with her life—and for Olivia that’s much easier than letting go, and trusting him with her heart.

Second - The Swoon(s):

Swoon 1
His voice is sincere. His expression is urgent. I close my eyes against his face, his handsome face, the face that haunts both my waking and my sleeping world. I open them again when I feel warm hands cup my cheeks. cash is a breath away, his eyes oceans of midnight, drawing me out into the deep.

Swoon 2
He watches me for a few seconds before his lips curve into a satisfied smile. It gets wider as he leans down to me. I think he might laugh, but he sobers as he reaches out to cup my face in his hands.

And then he kisses me. Not just a small kiss, either. A good kiss. A really good kiss. A kiss that other people should not be witnessing, especially when I'm wearing a sheet and nothing else.

If you've read this book then you might remember this scene. If not then I won't spoil if for you by saying any more.
Cash and Olivia - yeah - quite a fun couple.
