My Swoon for this week comes from:

You Make Me
(Blurred Lines #1)
Erin McCarthy

First - The Blurb:

The guy she wants…

Growing up on the coast of Maine with a revolving door of foster siblings, Caitlyn Michaud spent one intense and passionate year falling in love with her foster brother, Heath. Then he left without a word. The betrayal devastated Caitlyn and made her vow to forget the compelling bad boy. But forgetting his sensual touch and their deep all-consuming friendship is easier said than done.

Isn’t the guy she needs…

Determined to move on, in college Caitlyn has risen above her small town impoverished roots and has joined a sorority, reinvented her appearance, and landed the right boyfriend. Pre-law major and frat president, Ethan, is thoughtful and always laughing, and he makes her feel happy, calm. He also gives her the social acceptance she craves. 

But the perfect world she tried so hard to attain is ripped apart when Heath appears one night out of nowhere. Caitlyn remembers all the reasons why she loves him, even if they don’t make sense to anyone but her. Out of the military, Heath is as brooding and intense as ever, and he is determined not only to win her back, but to exact revenge on everyone who kept him from her…

And when one love allows her to breathe, but the other feels as essential to her life as air, how does she choose between them?

Second - The Swoon:

"Promise me if I don’t make you happy, you’ll toss me aside, no matter how much pressure I put on you. Because even though I can be selfish, all I really want is for you to be happy."

* * *
"It used to bother me, that I didn't know who I was or where I came from, just that my mother was a runaway with a fake name. But when I met you none of that mattered because I figured out who I was- the man who was born to love you."

After reading Erin's True Believers series and thoroughly liking it, I thought I would give this one a go. Although not written in quite the same style, it still proved to be entertaining.

Cat and Heath grew up together, then one day, he up and left without a word. For four years, Cat had no idea where he was or why he'd left her. Then, suddenly he returns, and the new life she has built for herself in his absence, slowly begins to crumble. 

There is a bit of a love triangle in this book, but fortunately, there is a HEA for all those concerned. Sort of.

My rating: 3.5 out of 5
