Swoon Thursday: Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson

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 Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson, which I am reading this week!  This book is a wonderful, wonderful Adult contemporary, which is a retelling of Pride & Prejudice set in the dog show world.  It sounds a bit unorthodox but I am loving this book so much.  And now, on to the swoon:
If that wasn't an invitation to be kissed, and to be kissed thoroughly, Donovan didn't know what was.  Knowing that she wanted it, he had a mind to make her wait for it.
"Let me get this for you."  He scooped the cream off her nose and offered it to her.  
Without breaking their gaze, she licked his fingertip.  At the sight of that tongue . . . those lips . . . all thoughts of making her wait flew right out of Donovan's head.  In one swift movement, he took the champagne flute from her hand and leaned in, pressing his mouth against hers.  
Her lips were sweet, cold from the champagne.  She tasted of strawberries and rosé.  He groaned in satisfaction as he felt her body shiver in delight and her mouth curved into the subtlest of smiles.
This is my first Teri Wilson book and I am loving it!! Highly recommend for Adult contemporary and, especially, fans of Jane Austen.  Even if you have read a lot of Pride & Prejudice retellings, this one is super cute and unique!  This book is scheduled to be released on January 1, 2014 and you can Pre-Order Here!*  Who are you swooning over this week? Link up your Swoon below!

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
