My Swoon for this week comes from:

Someday Girl
(Someday #1)
Melanie Shawn  

First - The Blurb:


For Cat Nichols, someday was finally here. Going away to college meant a fresh and new start for the girl who lived locked away in a prison of insecurities. She was ready to experience new things and meet new people. But she wasn’t ready for him…

Jace Butler had experienced things that no person should have to. Trying to come to terms with his past and live in the present was a constant struggle for the man whose demons lie dormant beneath the skin of his rippling body and sexy smile. But when she walked into his life, the chance for a better life came with her…

After finding each other, Cat and Jace also find that both past and present issues are trying to ruin their chance for a better future. Issues that will have to be dealt with for once and for all…together or apart.

Second - The Swoon(s):

Swoon 1
My heart slammed into my chest as I melted into his consuming embrace. The hard planes of his body against mine, even with the barriers of our clothing, felt better than anything I'd ever experienced in my life. His unique scent of soap and wood drifted up through my nose and I buried my face against the smooth skin of his neck and inhaled deeper, not even thinking about the right thing to do or not. I just wanted to experience every sense to the fullest. Touch. Smell. Sight.

Cat has lived an extremely sheltered life. She has little social experience, and when it comes to the opposite sex, she has next to none.

Swoon 2
When I touched my lips to hers, my heart stopped. My world stopped spinning. Time stood still. It was the most breathtaking kiss I had ever experienced, her sweet lips melting beneath mine. Her body felt warm and soft pressed against me. I forgot that we were standing on the street. Hell, I forgot that we were standing on Earth. My entire existence shrank down to one single, solitary sensation - the feeling of her soft, full lips on mine.

Jace has had a hard life moving from one foster home to another and then spending several years in the army. He believes he is unworthy of Cat's love, but as time passes and his attraction towards her grows, he slowly starts to see things differently.

I'm still reading this book so I'm not sure where the story will go from here. Guess I'll find out soon.
