Swoon Thursday #13 – Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

The fabulous girls over at YA Bound created this super HOT meme. Here's how it works.

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.

This week I have picked a swoon from a book that is just outside the YA genre, but I really loved this book! I decided to start reading it Tuesday night, because I thought the storyline will take a while to warm up. Boy was I wrong!! At almost 2am I decided to put the book down, because the kids can’t drive themselves to school, but it didn’t stop me from reading the book all Wednesday, until I finished it!!

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

He was holding back, but I could see it in his eyes that his self-control wouldn’t last long.

I leaned in again, and this time his arms gave way just enough for me to brush my lips against his. I looked up at him from under my brows, resolute. It took me a moment to say the words, but I would say them. “Don’t make me beg,” I whispered against his mouth.

With those four words, his reservations vanished. He kissed me, hard and eager. My fingers ran down the length of his back and settled on the elastic of his boxers, nervously running along the gather of the fabric. His lips grew impatient then, and I fell against the mattress when he crashed into me. His tongue found its way to mine one again, and when I gained the courage to slide my hand between his skin and the boxers, he groaned.

Hmm!! This was an amazing Rollercoaster ride, and loved every single minute of it!! The second book will be out 2013, called Walking Disaster, which is the same book but told from Travis's POV.... I can't wait!

Did you get swooned this week?
