Swoon Thursday: Nothing Personal (The Kincaids #2) by Rosalind James

Swoon Thursday is a meme hosted by YABound.  

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.

Today, I am spotlighting Nothing Personal (The Kincaids #2) by Rosalind James, which I devoured last week when it came out!  This book is an Adult contemporary that I absolutely loved!  I found Alec and Rae to be so, so good together! And now, on to the swoon:

Desiree, I love you.  And I know I'm not a hero, although I wish I could be that for you, because you deserve a hero.  I'm sure you could look around and find a better man, someone who's always done right, someone with steel in his soul to match yours.  But I promise you this.  Nobody is ever going to admire you more than I do.  Nobody is ever going to be there for you the way I will.  And nobody is ever going to love you more.  At those things, I'm the best, and I always will be.  
So swoon-worthy, right?! I have very quickly devoured every book written by Rosalind James and have loved every single one!  Nothing Personal definitely adds a new element with a bit of suspense in addition to the very lovely romance and relationship between Alec and Rae.  Highly recommend for Adult contemporary!  Who are you swooning over this week? Link up your Swoon below!

Waiting on Wednesday: Third Lie's the Charm (The Liar Society #3) by Lisa Roecker and Laura Roecker

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on Third Lie's the Charm (The Liar Society #3) by Lisa Roecker and Laura Roecker!  I absolutely LOVED the first two books in this series, The Liar Society (The Liar Society #1) and The Lies That Bind (The Liar Society #2)and given the cliffhanger at the end of the last book, I cannot wait to read this!

New friend into old, the bond of the Sisterhood will never grow cold.

Life at Pemberly Brown is a whirlwind for Kate Lowry. Determined to finally destroy the secret society responsible for her best friend Grace’s death, Kate joins the Sisterhood hoping to go all Trojan Horse on their asses. But the night of her initiation another student at Pemberly Brown dies in what looks like tragic accident.

Kate knows better.

Kate and her faithful ginger, Seth Allen, immediately uncover a connection to the boy’s death and the secret societies that rule Pemberly Brown. But it’s not until Kate begins receiving pages from Grace’s old journal that she begins to piece together what really happened the night she died and how it connects to Pemberly Brown’s most recent tragedy.

Meanwhile, Kate’s ex-boyfriend Liam is following her around like an angry guard dog and she’s falling hard for the mysterious Bradley Farrow. Both boys are tied up in the mystery that surrounds Pemberly Brown, but only one of them can truly be trusted.

In this chilling conclusion to The Liar Society series Kate will fight to save her school from the evil that lurks beneath its hallowed halls. But will her quest destroy her or finally lead her to true love? She can only hope her third lie’s the charm.

Oh Kate -- I just can't believe what she did to Liam at the end of the last book!  And will we ever know what happened to Grace? It is scheduled to be released December 3, 2013 and you can pre-order here!
