Swoon Thursday: Fate Succumbs (Timber Wolves Trilogy #3) by Tammy Blackwell

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 Fate Succumbs (Timber Wolves Trilogy #3) by Tammy Blackwell, the third and final book in the Timber Wolves Trilogy.  I just finished this series and it was so, so good!  I can't wait to read the recently release spin-off, Fragile Brilliance!  And now, on to the swoon:
"Why are you wearing that face?" he asked. 
I touched my cheek.  Thanks to my mom and Gramma Hagan, I was starting to gain weight, but my cheekbone still stuck out a bit too far.   
"This is the face God gave me," I said, trying to hide the hurt in my voice.  "I can't exactly take it off and put it on a shelf."   
"I'm talking about this."  A finger brushed against my mouth.  "And this."  He tapped the corner of each eye. 
"Those came with the face.  It was a package deal."   
"Did they come all scrunched up like that?  Because, in my experience, you only look like that when you're stressed or frustrated."  He huffed out a breath and rubbed the back of his head.  "Is it because I'm here?  I should have called you first.  Sorry.  I just wanted to surprise you."   
Something in my chest felt warm, probably the last little piece of my heart melting for him.   
"I'm frustrated because I want to touch you so bad I'm literally hurting my hand to prevent it, and I'm stressed because I don't know how you'll react when I lose control." 
[He]* looked at me like I was an alien for about half a second before crawling over me, one hand finding the back of my head to drag my lips to his.  He was enthustiastic in his kiss, and I responded in kind.  I didn't realize how much I missed the taste and feel of him until he was in my arms. 
*Taking out the name so there are no spoilers! 

Highly recommend this series for those who like paranormal YA!  I remember initially hearing about this series on another blog (can't remember whose) and that's just one of the many reasons why blogging is so great.  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
