~Swoon Thursday~


The ladies over at YA Bound have created a HOT meme, and if you're new to the game, here's how to join in the fun:

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, or post it here in the comments.

In this special edition of Swoon Thursday we have a mix of titles, but they are all from the same series. If you haven't heard of the Beautiful Bastard series after this post you will be running to get yourself a copy of the first book! Daisel & I read all six books in less than two weeks, that's how good this series is. We are still fighting over who keeps Max. We've come to an agreement of trading him off every other week. We all know he's mine. ;) 


Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard, #1)

“I don't want to walk out that door and lose what we found in this room."

His simple words rocked me. He wasn't declaring, he wasn't promising, but he said exactly what I'd needed to hear. We might not know what was happening, but we wouldn't leave it unfinished.”
― Christina Lauren, Beautiful Bastard

“Being inside of her was the most perfect torture. It satiated the hunger I felt at that moment, but like a junkie I found myself consumed by the need for more as soon as it ended. It was terrifying, because in those moments with her, I’d do anything she asked. And that feeling was starting to bleed into moments like this too, when I wasn’t even with her and still wanted to be what she needed. Ridiculous.”
― Christina Lauren, Beautiful Bastard


Beautiful Stranger (Beautiful Bastard, #2)

It should be known that this was by far the hardest quotes to pick. My whole book is covered in tabs because Max is just that amazing. That alone should tell you that you MUST read this book!

“I love you, too." Click. "But I'm terrified."
He lowered the camera, eyes on me.
"I didn't want to fall in love with you,' I said.
He took a step closer. "If it makes you feel any better, you put up a very impressive fight." He didn't put the camera down when he stepped forward again to kiss me. He just moved his hand to the side and cupped my face with the other, pressing his mouth to mine. "I'm scared, too, Sara. I'm scared I'm your rebound. I'm scared we'll cock it up somehow. I'm scared you'll tire of me. But the thing is," he said, smiling, "I don't want anyone else. You've rather ruined me for other women.”
― Christina Lauren, Beautiful Stranger

“When I say ‘I love you’ I don’t mean that I love what being with you does for my career, or I love how often you’re willing to shag. I mean I love you. I love making you laugh, and seeing how you react to things, and getting to know the little things about you. I love who I am with you, and I’m trusting you not to hurt me.”
― Christina Lauren, Beautiful Stranger

Beautiful Bitch (Beautiful Bastard, #1.5)

“I'd definitely found my equal, the woman who made my life a living hell and lived to antagonize me. A woman whose mouth I wanted to tape shut...every bit as much as I wanted to kiss it.”
― Christina Lauren, Beautiful Bitch

“I can function without you. But I don’t like being away from you. It feels like you take my home with you when you go.”
― Christina Lauren, Beautiful Bitch


Beautiful Bombshell (Beautiful Bastard, #2.5)

"Stripping my clothes off and leaving them in a discarded pile on the floor, I climbed over her, braced on my arms and legs. Not touching her, not yet, just taking her in: a tangle of brown curls against the stark white bed linens, eyes closed but lids fluttering in her dreams, lips wet and red and begging to be kissed. Everything below her neck was covered by her cocoon of blankets, and when I stared down at the steady rhythm of her pulse beneath the delicate skin of her neck, I felt a little predatory."
― Christina Lauren, Beautiful Bombshell

"I finished adjusting my clothes and leaned across the chair, taking her face in my hands and dragging a finger down her nose.
"I've got to go."
"Yes, you do."
"I love you, Petal."
"Love you too, stranger."
― Christina Lauren, Beautiful Bombshell

Beautiful Player (Beautiful Bastard, #3)

"She'd looked over and caught me; the energy between us palpable, and confusing as fuck. And when she smiled, it lit up her whole face. She looked as open as a screen door in the summer, and despite the temperature, something warmed in my veins. It was an old, yet familiar hunger. A desire I hadn't felt in forever, where my blood filled with adrenaline and I wanted to be the only one to discover a particular girl's secrets."
― Christina Lauren, Beautiful Player

“Please,” she begged, kissing me again, reaching for my other hand and trying to pull it around her. “I want to be with you so much it’s making it hard to breathe.”
― Christina Lauren, Beautiful Player


Beautiful Beginning (Beautiful Bastard, #3.5)

"Despite the way she’d crashed the bachelor party, the fact that we’d bought a Manhattan apartment together, or the ring on Chloe’s finger, it was this strange moment of nerves that made it finally sink in. We were getting married. When I left here again, Chloe would be my wife."
― Christina Lauren, Beautiful Beginning

“We're married. I'm your safe place. I've always been your safe place.”
― Christina Lauren, Beautiful Beginning



And that wraps up this special edition of Swoon Thursday! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Many thanks to the fantastic duo known as Christina Lauren for writing such marvelous books and creating equally amazing book boyfriends!
