It's that time again! We created a HOT meme, and if you're new to the game, here's how to join in the fun:
From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.
Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on your blog! We want to know :-)
This week, we are apparently all about the self love LOL. Without planning, the majority of us read books by one another, but hey, these are some pretty swoony moments....if we do say so ourselves (ha!)
So while we're celebrating our personal book boyfriends and swoony moments, we'd love to know.... who are some of YOUR all-time favorite book boyfriends?? Leave them in the comments, along with those yummy swoons!
RACHEL: I've been traveling for most of the week and haven't been able to read much, but what I have read has been quite scrumptious. See, it's a little book called INBETWEEN by Tara Fuller, maybe you've heard of her, and it's positively filled with yummy, sigh-worthy moments. Here is one from the very beginning....as in chapter one, y'all...and already it had me falling for Finn. This is a book boyfriend I can seriously get behind:
I shut my eyes, trying to hold on to it. I wasn't stupid enough to think she'd remember this when she woke up, but damn it if hearing my name slip through her lips didn't sweep through me like wildfire. Scorching the places where blood used to run. Melting the hollow space where my heart used to beat.
TARA: Swooning over My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century by Rachel Harris
(yes, that would be me....and no, I totally didn't bribe her.....psst, Tara, I'll send you that twenty later *grin*)
"Lorenzo plops down and brushes the ribbons of hair away from my mouth, never taking his eyes off mine. Heat ripples throughout my body as his thumb grazes my lower lip."
KELLY: Swooning over Shift by Kim Curran:
"Kiss me," she said. I looked at her and swallowed hard. Her pale skin was glowing in the flickering streetlights and there were flecks of brown in her green eyes I'd never noticed before. She smiled. "Hey," she said. "If it doesn't work out, you can always change your mind." I leaned in to kiss her knowing this was one decision I was never going to change.
NEREYDA: Swooning over Destiny's Fire by Trisha Wolfe:
We clung to each other like something was trying to wrench us apart. I couldn't get close enough to him. Reese kissed my neck, running his hands along my body. He gripped at my clothes, inching his hands down my thighs, and lifted me into his arms. I locked my legs around him as he seated me on the desk. His lips met mine again, and he lowered me onto my back.
TRISH: Still swooning over Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson :
He jerked me toward a pile of mildew-splotched crimson velvet cushions surrounding the fountain and pushed me down. He grasped my arms hard and put his full weight on top of me. "Now I want kisses. Not your missish pecks--long, deep, luscious kisses." I bit him
SO NOW IT'S YOUR TURN! On your blog (and be sure to leave us a link), and/or on Twitter... SWOON us!
