My Swoon for this week comes from:

Sometimes It Lasts
(Sea Breeze #5)

by
Abbi Glines



First - The Blurb:


Cage York has to choose between a love of the game and a love of the girl in this sultry Sea Breeze novel from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines.

After waiting for his big break, bad boy Cage York is finally called up to prove his worth in the college baseball arena. But when Cage’s girlfriend, Eva, mourns the sudden loss of her father, it’s not Cage’s comforting arms she runs to, but those of her former fiancĂ©’s twin brother, Jeremy.

Torn between his baseball dream and the girl of his dreams, Cage must prove he’s worthy of Eva’s love, or risk losing her to Jeremy forever.


Second - The Swoon(s):


“I worship the ground Eva walks on. I love her smile. I love the way she gets in a snit and her lips get all pinched up. I love the way she thinks she has to cook for me. I love the fact that she lets me butter her biscuit. I love the way she curls into me at night and lets me hold her. I also love how perfect it is when I’m making love to her. How I feel complete.” ...CAGE



“Because I love you more than any goddamn thing on this f***ing planet, I’m gonna let you have one more day. You just lost your daddy, and I’ll never forgive my- self for not being here with you. I’ll live my life regretting it. But I’ll be back. You’re mine, Eva Brooks. Always. You told me that yourself and, sweetheart, I’m holding you to it.” 
...CAGE


I first met Eva and Cage in While It Lasts (Sea Breeze #3). I loved reading their story and was a little disappointed when it ended. Needless to say, I'm so glad Abbi gave us another book dedicated to this awesome couple.

My Rating: 5 out of 5

My Tease for this week comes from:

Three Broken Promises
(One Week Girlfriend #3)

by
Monica Murphy 


First - The Blurb:



**Mature situations and sexual content recommended for ages 17+**

Commitment. That’s what I really want from Colin. Ever since my brother, Danny, died in Iraq, Colin’s done so much to help me, including giving me a job at his popular restaurant so I can leave my crappy waitressing job at the strip joint. But lying in bed with him every night to comfort him from his horrible nightmares isn’t enough anymore. I know he feels guilty about Danny’s death, about not going to Iraq, but I can’t keep living this double life. 

I love him desperately, but he’s got so many demons, and if he can’t open up to me now, then he’ll never be the real partner I need him to be. I gave him a month, and now I’m out of here. If he truly loves me like he says, he knows where to find me.



Second - The Tease(rs):

A Tease from Jen's Pov

Colin Wilder is the epitome of too much.

He shifts closer so that our lips practically touch. "I have no idea," I whisper, my lips moving over his as I speak. His mouth is on mine and then he's kissing me. Soft, heady kisses that make me dizzy, my lips parting with every brush of his, a whimper escaping me when he draws my lower lip in between his and sucks.

He feels so good, tastes even better, and he shifts against me.


A Tease from Colin's POV

She tentatively places her hands on my hips, her fingers curling into the waistband of my jeans. Having her hands on me sends little darts of  fire throughout my insides, making me harden in an instant. She has no idea what sort of effect she has on me. How much restraint I'm using at this very moment not to throw her over my shoulder like an oversexed caveman and cart her off to my room.



Three Broken Promises is the third book in the One Week Girlfriend series by Monica Murphy. Following the story of Jen and Colin, it is an entertaining read filled with a lot of emotional turmoil and steamy bedroom scenes. Although I did enjoy it for the most part, I preferred reading Fable and Drew's story more.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

This week for me its:

Come Away with Me
(With Me in Seattle #1)

by
Kristen Proby


Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.

Luke Williams just wants the world to give him a break, so seeing yet another camera aimed at his face has him ready to pounce on the beauty behind the lens. When he finds out she has no idea who he is, he's intrigued and more than a little tempted by her. Natalie has a body made for sex, a sassy mouth and Luke can’t get enough of her, but he’s not ready to tell her who he really his.

Natalie is a no nonsense girl who doesn’t do well with lies and secrets. What will happen to this new relationship when she discovers what Luke’s hiding?


SO NOW IT'S YOUR TURN!
