My Swoon for this week comes from:

Simple Perfection
(Rosemary Beach #6)

Abbi Glines 

First - The Blurb:

Woods had his perfect life mapped out for him. Rise up the ranks of the family business. Marry the rich girl of his parents’ dreams. Pretend that wealth and privilege was all he’d ever wanted. Then a girl named Della breezed into town, a beautifully imperfect stranger who captured his heart and opened his eyes to a new kind of future. Woods is ready and willing to sacrifice everything for her when the sudden death of his father leaves him with his mother to care for and a business to manage.

Della is determined to be strong for Woods, even as she’s quietly falling to pieces. No matter how far from home she’s run, the ghosts of her past have never stopped haunting her. Struggling to hide her true feelings from Woods, Della fears she can’t be his rock without dragging him down into the darkness with her. But is she strong enough to let go of the last thing holding her together?

Second - The Swoon(s):

Swoon 1
He reached over and laced his fingers through mine. "Are you sure? I'll fix whatever is wrong if you just tell me," he said, gently tugging me to him. He was a fixer. He wanted to fix my life, and that wasn't possible.

Instead of answering, I stood up on my tiptoes and pressed my lips to his neck. "I want you," I whispered against his warm skin. "Right now, all I want is you."

Swoon 2
I reached up and grabbed his face and kissed him. With everything I had, I kissed him. I didn't have the words to make any of this right. So I showed him how I felt. How much he meant to me. His arms wrapped around me and he met each stroke of my tongue with his own. We stood there tasting and indulging in each other. It was perfect. I was home.

There were so many swoon worthy moments in this book that I had trouble choosing.

Simple Perfection is a nice continuation of Woods and Della's story which started in its predecessor, Twisted Perfection.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

Waiting on Wednesday #1 ~ Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m waiting on: 

Black Ice
Becca Fitzpatrick

Expected publication: October 7th 2014

Sometimes danger is hard to see... until it’s too late. 

Britt Pfeiffer has trained to backpack the Teton Range, but she isn't prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two very handsome occupants—but these men are fugitives, and they take her hostage. 

In exchange for her life, Britt agrees to guide the men off the mountain. As they set off, Britt knows she must stay alive long enough for Calvin to find her. The task is made even more complicated when Britt finds chilling evidence of a series of murders that have taken place there... and in uncovering this, she may become the killer’s next target. 

But nothing is as it seems in the mountains, and everyone is keeping secrets, including Mason, one of her kidnappers. His kindness is confusing Britt. Is he an enemy? Or an ally? 

BLACK ICE is New York Times bestselling author Becca Fitzpatrick’s riveting romantic thriller set against the treacherous backdrop of the mountains of Wyoming. Falling in love should never be this dangerous…

My Tease for this week comes from:

Rush Too Far
(Rosemary Beach #4)

Abbi Glines

First - The Blurb:

Get ready to fall hard for Rush… 

Fallen Too Far introduced us to Rush Finlay, the gorgeous charming son of a famous rock star, and Blaire Wynn, the girl from Alabama who rode into Rosemary Beach, Florida, in a pick-up truck with a gun under the seat looking for her estranged father. United under one roof by the surprising marriage of their parents, Rush and Blaire couldn't hate each other more. But it only took a summer to for everything to change… 

Fallen Too Far was Blaire's story. Now it's time for Rush to share his side, and for readers to fall all over again!

Second - The Tease(rs):

Rush is~

Sexy Hot
 “The fact that I was suddenly glad that I was shirtless wasn't good. I shouldn't care that she was staring at my chest like she wanted a lick. F***. F***. No! She didn't want to lick my chest. Where the hell had that idea come from?” 

A Little Desperate
“Leaning down, I pressed a kiss to her head. "I will fix this. I swear I will make it right. I love you enough to get us through this. I just need you to love me enough. Please, Blaire. Love me enough," I pleaded.” 

Totally Possessive
 “Blaire is mine. Don’t touch her. I will kill you. Do you understand me?”
Woods let out a humourless laugh. “Yeah. Whatever, Finlay I’m not scared of your threats. The only reason I’m not touching Blaire is that she doesn’t want me. It’s fucking obvious who she wants. So calm the hell down. You’ve had her from the beginning.” 

And all in when it comes to Blaire 
Did I love her? I hadn't ever been in love. Other than my Dad, Nan and Grant, I couldn't say I ever loved anyone else.

Would I choose her over one of them?

Would I die to protect her?
Hell, yes.

Could I live if she left me?
No. I would be shattered.

Was this love? It seemed so much stronger than something as simple as love.


If you have fallen for Rush and want to meet him, here's where you can find him:

Fallen Too Far (Too Far 1)
Never Too Far (Too Far 2)
Forever Too Far (Too Far 3)
Rush Too Far (Too Far 4)

My Rating for this entire series: 5 out of 5

This week for me its:

(Fire on Ice #1)

Brenda Rothert

College senior Kate Camden has learned to adapt - to her last year of school, to the promise of motherhood, to the fact that she’s doing it all alone. But just when she’s learned to adjust, heartache threatens to break her apart. 

Pro hockey player Jason “Ryke” Ryker has it all: adoring fans, a promising career, and a beautiful wife. But when his seemingly perfect life is shaken by tragedy, he’s left questioning whether having it all is ever more than an illusion.

When circumstance brings Kate and Ryke together, they discover they don’t have to hurt alone. Bound by a grief that haunts them both, they must rely on one another to survive heartbreak. But that grief is more powerful than they realize, and the tie that binds them together may ultimately tear them apart.
