We stayed that way—lips joined, gazes locked, and breaths stolen. As if the world had stopped 
spinning while we branded the memory of each other's mouths and eyes and hands. 
And then his tongue fluttered against my lips, demanding entrance, and I was lost Entirely over-the-moon lost. He groaned as his tongue slid past my lips, filling my mouth so completely, as he explored every inch in a languid rhythm. And he tasted ... God, he tasted like the best kind of dessert. Like banana cream pie and fried dough mixed together. 
As he caressed my tongue, my teeth, the roof of my mouth, I was sure the rush I felt had nothing to do with sugar. 
I slid my hands down his biceps to his waist and pushed firmly against him. I wanted to get as near as I could in case this was the first and last time I'd have this opportunity. He released my mouth and dragged his lips along my jaw and then down to my neck. I felt his hot tongue against my skin as he bit and licked his way to my ear. His hands slid down my back to cup my ass. 
"Damn it, Ella. You're sexy as hell." 

Oh Christina Lee, you create such swoon worthy heroes! I mean who wouldn't want to be called sexy by Quinn, the seriously yummy baseball player with tortured soul. But he is also super sweet and caring with Ella and these two have some sweet and oh so steamy scenes! I LOVED this book so much!!

So what's making you swoon this week?


  1. Ooo, I've never heard of this book! But YUMMY ATHLETES FOR THE WIN!! I'm convinced that any athlete is automatically in some way my type - in real life or in literature ;D Great swoon choice! I'm loving any swoon that mentions a guy's biceps ;)
