I picked up Hopeless for $0.99c on the weekend I just had to read it and OMG!!! What an awesome book!! If you haven't read it.... GET IT!!! 

The Chapter titled Saturday, September 1st, 2012, 5.05pm has lots of swoonworthy scenes..... Now, let me introduce you to Holder.....

Colleen Hoover
Hopeless #1

Hopeless (Hopeless, #1)

“Sky, I’m not kissing you tonight but believe me when I tell you, I’ve never wanted to kiss a girl more. So stop thinking I’m not attracted to you because you have no idea just how much I am. You can hold my hand, you can run your fingers through my hair, you can straddle me while I feed you spaghetti, but you are not getting kissed tonight. And probably not tomorrow, either. I need this. I need to know for sure that you’re feeling every single thing that I’m feeling the moment my lips touch yours. Because I want your first kiss to be the best first kiss in the history of first kisses.” Kindle Loc 2129

Here is some more Holder, because he is so swoon worthy.....

“Let me inform you of something,” he says in a low voice. “The moment my lips touch yours, it will be your first kiss. Because if you’ve never felt anything when someone’s kissed you, then no one’s ever really kissed you. Not the way I plan on kissing you.” He drops his hands and keeps his eyes locked on mine while he backs up to the stove. He turns around to tend to the pasta like he didn’t just ruin me for any other guy for the rest of my life. I can’t feel my legs, so I do the only thing I can. I slide down the refrigerator until my butt meets the floor, and I inhale.
