Swoon Thursday: Disclosure of the Heart (Beside Your Heart #2) by Mary Whitney

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 Disclosure of the Heart (Beside Your Heart #2) by Mary Whitney, which I stayed up all night to finish as soon as it was released!  This book is a wonderful, wonderful NA/Adult contemporary, a genre of which I have read a ton!  I am counting the seconds until the final book in the series, Forever Your Heart (Beside Your Heart #3), is released in early 2014!!  And now, on to the swoon:

As if he read my mind, he slowly moved his hand over my cheekbone and rubbed his thumb over my brow.  It was so kind I rested my cheek in his hand.  His eyes were fixed on mine as he declared, "I loved you, Nicki.  And to my eyes, you're still the fairest of them all."   
My eyes widened.  What was there to say to that?  "Adam . . . " I whispered.   
"But now you're also this fascinating woman.  i want to touch you, but I want more.  I want to hear your stories.  I want to listen to your opinions on things.  I want to get to know you again." 
I have now read all of Mary Whitney's books and have seriously loved every single one of them.  However, Disclosure of the Heart was the perfect story of seizing that second chance with your first love despite adversity.  The first book, Beside Your Heart, was such a wonderful mixture of grief, teen angst and first love.  I cannot wait to find out what happens next!! Highly recommend for NA/Adult contemporary; I absolutely love Mary Whitney's genre of political romance.  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…
