This week I read two swoon-worthy books! I couldn't decide between either of them, so I thought I'd share both books. And they are actually part of the same series! This week I'm sharing Recalled and Charmed by Cambria Hebert.
I dipped her backward, holding her tight, and leaned close. "I love you." Then I kissed her. My lips brushed over hers, meeting what was the most satisfying taste I'd ever known. She kissed me back, her lips claiming what was left of my heart and tucking it safely within her. I would've kissed her for hours. I would've kissed her for a lifetime...
Ohhhhh, this book.... I can't even say much without spoiling things, but I loved it so much. It's one of my favorite reads of this year. It's not a traditional HEA, but damn, if I didn't love the ending. It was PERFECT. :)
My back hit the nearby brick retaining wall. And I was completely surrounded. One of his hands crawled around to the small of my back and grabbed a handful of the red silk.I didn't have time to say anything. To declare I couldn't even stand his presence. I wouldn't have been able to form a sentence anyway because he yanked me forward and his mouth covered mine. Aggressive. That’s how he kissed. Like he was staking a claim, not only on my lips, but my entire body.
His lips didn't just touch me; they didn't just brush against mine… They captured me. I couldn't even be considered their hostage because even if he pulled back and offered freedom, I would have stayed. I would have begged for more. He kissed me like he’d never kissed me before. Slow. Soft. Gentle. He was so utterly and agonizingly slow, tilting his head one way and then the other. The friction of his lips meeting mine again and again filled every part of me with something warm and liquid, until I was so overfull with longing I couldn't sit still.
I actually loved the first book more, but this one was still amazing. Charming and Frankie were great characters, and I loved how their relationship developed. <3
I loved this series! I'm actually hoping for more of these books, but I'm not sure if that'll happen. (Here's to hoping!)
Check out my review, Love or Death, of both books and read why I loved this series. :)
So, what book(s) had you swooning this week? Leave me a link to your swoon so I can check it out! :)
