My Swoon for this week comes from:

Just For Now
(Sea Breeze #4)

Abbi Glines

Warning: This book is recommended for 18+ readers due to its adult content.

First - The Blurb:

An insatiable attraction heats to the boiling point in this steamy book set in the shore town of Sea Breeze from the author of the white-hot The Vincent Boys.

Preston is one bad boy. And Amanda has harbored a crush on him for forever. When she finally makes her move on him, it does not end well. But still, she can’t resist him. Especially now that he seems to be pursuing her, too.

No one wants wants them to be together. Not Amanda’s brother Marcus, who is on the verge of his marriage to Low, and definitely not any of Preston’s buddies. They know way too much about Preston’s dark side. Even Preston realizes he’s not good enough for someone like her.

But Amanda believes there is more to Preston than his bad boy persona, and she is determined to unearth what he’s hiding behind his seductive blue eyes—secrets that could explain his actions. Secrets Amanda might not be able to forgive.

Yet the dangerous attraction persists...and neither Preston nor Amanda is going to deny it.

Second - The Swoon:

"I'm gonna kiss you this time, sweetheart. I can't help it," he whispered as his mouth lowered and covered mine.

From the look on his face, I expected his kiss to be demanding. Instead his soft lips were gentle. Almost like he was savoring me. His tongue slipped into my mouth and tangled with mine. Each caress had me bucking my body to get closer to him. I couldn't touch him. He had my hands still pinned back with one of his. So I kissed him back as wildly and freely as I could. Everything I felt for him came pouring out of me.

For years Preston only saw Amanda as his best friends little sister. Now she's all grown up and he sees her differently. Way differently.

Watching Preston struggle between what he wants and what he knows he shouldn't have was a little heart wrenching at times. However, I still enjoyed every minute. Another great novel by Abbi Glines.

My Tease for this week comes from:

While It Lasts

(Sea Breeze #3)

Abbi Glines

Warning: This book is recommended for 18+ readers due to its adult content.

First - The Blurb:

Cage brings his playboy prowess to the countryside as the Sea Breeze hookups continue, from self-published phenomenon Abbi Glines.

Low broke Cage’s heart by getting with Marcus in Because of Low. Cage went into a tailspin that ended in a DUI. In order to salvage his baseball scholarship—the one thing he truly valued besides Low—Cage must take a summer job. At a farm. Away from Sea Breeze. With lots of cows, but no hot girls. Maybe that’s what Cage needs to get back on track.

But wait—there’s that hostile daughter of the farm boss. She’s pretty and occasionally sweet, and there seems to be a lot of sadness and mystery behind her anger. Cage is dying to strip her down—physically and mentally—in the back of the barn. But is he prepared for what will happen afterward?

Second - The Tease:

"Can I watch you get the other one?" she asked, staring up at me with those eyes of hers through heavily lidded lashes. Damn. What had she just said? I couldn't keep my train of thought straight.

"Huh?" I managed to ask.

She began placing small kisses around my pec. "Can I go with you when you get the other one done?" she asked with her lips against my chest.

"Baby, I'll let you sit in my damn lap if you want," I replied.

So, I guess you're  wondering what they're talking about. I'll give you a hint. It involves nipples and piercings.

Out of all the guys in the Sea Breeze series, I think Cage is my favorite.

Save My Soul
(Save My Soul#1)


K.S. Haigwood

Kendra Larkin had everything going in the right direction. Her life was seemingly perfect, and she wouldn't have changed a thing about it. Unfortunately, the course of her life was about to be forever altered. A tragic rappelling accident lands her on Dr. Adam Chamberlain's operating table.

She agrees to a deal proposed by a guardian angel to help save the soul of the man who is both her doctor and soulmate. If she is successful, she gets to keep her life. However, she later learns that it isn't just her life that's in jeopardy, but her soul as well.

Even with the help of her handsome guardian angel, Rhyan, it seems there is no happy ending in sight. Torn between her newly discovered love of Rhyan, and the undeniable attraction she has for Adam, Kendra finds herself at a crossroad. With Adam's steadfast rejection of God, and his guardian demon conspiring against her, she fears her soul may already be lost.

Will she find a way to overcome the evil her life is suddenly burdened with? Or will Adam's guardian demon win both their souls and make Kendra his own personal puppet in Hell?

I got this off Amazon some time last year and forgot I had it. It's now on my TBR list for this year.
