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!

Megan created this feature and I owe this post to her brilliance.  Not only should you check out her blog, generally, but her This & That recommendations are utterly perfect! Megan created this feature to showcase books that either sound similar or have similar themes, and thus I am recommending that you read the "that book" because you are a a fan of the “this book.”

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
