"It's true," I said. "I love you, and I want you to be happy, I want you to have the life you deserve. And if that means…if that means I have to stand here and watch you walk away, then I'll do it. I won't be happy about it. It'll break my heart. But…if that's what you really need, then we're done."

She looked at me, her expression shifting, and I couldn't figure out what was going on in there.

"Before you go." I said, "you need to know - I'd do anything for you." I stepped close, so close we were almost touching. "Even kiss you goodbye and watch you go."

Oh this book gave me major feels…it was heartbreakingly beautiful. I had to choose a swoon from Crank's POV because I absolutely loved his voice in this story. This is a MUST read book!

So what's making you swoon this week?


  1. Oh wow that swoon is full of the feels! That is so heartbreakingly sweet! Awesome pick!

    1. That's exactly why I chose this scene for my swoon, so much is going on between them at this moment, and it just got to me so much. I hope you end up reading it, it's such an amazing book!
