I decided I needed something fun to read and this is all that and more!! Check out the swoon.... there are so many, but this was definitely worth sharing!!

Suddenly #1

“If I can’t have it, no one can.” I narrowed my eyes in mock threat. 

“Is that so?” 

“You’ll have to pry it from my cold, dead fingers.” I backed into the bookshelf behind me. 

“Maybe I just need to distract you long enough to steal it.” He put a hand on the shelf by my head. 

“And how do you plan on doing that?” I licked my lips. 

“I have a few ideas.” He moved his other hand, caging me in, and leaned down. 

I clutched the books to my chest and my heart beat against them like a drum. Alex brought his mouth close to mine but stopped a centimeter away. I inhaled his scent and fought my urge to close the distance. Slowly he moved his mouth to my cheek, close enough that I could feel his breath wash across my skin. His journey continued down my jaw and to my neck. My head tilted of its own accord, letting him have better access. One of his hands moved from near my head to just beside my waist, the sleeve of his jacket brushing against my arm. 

As he moved from my right side to the left, I tilted my head again, my body alive with anticipation. I wanted him to kiss me. Needed his kiss, and I was near my breaking point—no more waiting. His other hand slid down from the shelf and closed on my waist while he took a step closer, pressing his body against mine. He brought his head back up and looked into my eyes. 

“I want to kiss you, Samantha.” He took a deep breath and moved a little closer. “But I’m not going to kiss you again until you ask me to.”.

    I will be honest never would of thought twice about looking any further with this novel as the cover reminds me of The Princess Diaries. Loved your swoon enough got me curious to check it out and yes it is like The Princess Diaries theme. But found it NA and I am actually interested. Adding to my wish list. Love the last line. Thanks for sharing a new author for me.
