My Swoon for this week comes from:

 Finders Keepers
(Lost and Found #3)
Nicole Williams 

First - The Blurb:

There’s tortured. And there’s Garth Black. 

His life has been a constant carousel of tragedy and disappointment, including his love life. Of course, applying the term “love” to Garth’s conquests is a gross misuse of the word. Some people were made to give and accept love, and others weren’t. Garth Black redefines the “others” category. He’s made a vow that the day he meets a woman who could sucker him into falling in love will be the day he runs away. 

Garth’s plan has one flaw. What happens when he’s already fallen hard for a girl before the warning signs and red flags go up? What happens when the love he’s avoided his entire life brings him to his knees? What happens when Garth Black lets the dirtiest four letter word he’s ever known into his dark, lonely life?

This cowboy’s about to find out he can control some things, and he can’t control others. Number one on the what he can’t control list? 


**Recommended for mature readers due to moderate content and language**

Second - The Swoon:

“I might not have any more blankets, but there are other ways to get you warm.” 

Josie's eyes flashed my way. “What other ways?”

I scooted down until I was propped up on an elbow beside her. My heart was already thundering, and I hadn’t even touched her. “Well, there are lots of other ways, I guess . . . but I had one particular way in mind.” 

“What ‘particular’ way is that?” Her voice was a few notes high, and then she licked her lips. She knew. 

I leaned in closer until my mouth was just barely above hers. “This way is what I . . .” The fight I’d been battling all night, all month, the past fifteen years, finally became too much. My mouth covered hers, and when it did, Josie let out a small gasp. Shoving my hat off, she weaved her hand through my hair, and pulled me closer.

When I first met Garth in  Lost and Found, I thought him to be a bit of a trouble maker. Someone who liked to stir the pot.

In Near and Far, he demonstrated a different side. A side which demonstrated that he could be a decent guy and offer sound advice to his best friend when it was needed.

Finally being able to get inside his head was an amazing ride and gave me a better understanding of why he acts the jerk even though he's really a sweet, sensitive, caring guy who drew the short straw when it came to life.

My Rating: 5 out of 5
