Swoon Thursday #40 – Red Dawn by J.J. Bonds

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.

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! I want to know & so do the chicks at YABound!

I have been enjoying this series and had to share a swoon from the second book this week.... Nik has busy fingers!!

“Just that I know how much you hate to lose.” 

“You know, for a minute there I thought you were trying to compliment me on my resourcefulness,” I tease. 

“Katia, if I were going to compliment you, it would be on those stunningly short shorts,” he purrs. 

Before I can come up with an appropriately indignant response, he’s running his finger along the waistband of my running shorts. Okay, so maybe Nik is faster than me. But I can’t think about that right now. Actually, I can’t think about anything except the heat blazing along my skin. Nik’s finger leaves a delicious trail of fire in its wake. I should push the roving hand away, but deep down I know I don’t want it to end. I want more. A lot more. 


“Shh,” he murmurs, closing the gap between us. His lips brush my cheek ever so lightly. My pulse thunders so loudly in my ears that I’m not sure I hear his next words right. “I missed you this summer.”.
