Swoon Thursday #1 - Leo Maddox
This is a weekly meme created by YA Bound and I'm super excited to join in on the fun! If you want to join, heres how:
You can use a book you're currently reading or one that you finished, tell us what made you swoon! Share it on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post your link in the comments, and grab the steamy button above to put it on your blog!
My swoon this week is from a book I had the pleasure of getting an ARC of. It's called He Belongs With Me by Sarah Darlington. I did a cover reveal for it a while back, but I just finished the book yesterday and I think I'm in love. Below is the synopsis of the book, and my review will be up soon for the blog tour as well.
He Belongs With Me by Sarah Darlington
Two girls. One Leo.
Identical twins, Maggie and Clara Ryder, both grew up with Leo Maddox, billionaire playboy, apparent alcoholic, and heir to his grandfather's world-famous Maddox hotel empire. Their roles were cemented long ago: Maggie, as his best friend and Clara as his childhood nemesis.
But when a simple twist of fate changes everything and both girls start to fall for the lean, mean, ridiculously sexy and seemingly spoiled Leo... which girl will win his heart?
Throw in a little mischief, drama, and one smoking-hot bartender and lines are sure to blur. But one thing's for certain, neither good-girl Maggie nor rebellious Clara will be satisfied until they each figure out where they belong.
*NEW ADULT ROMANCE. Recommended for 17+ due to sexual situations and adult language.
Many people don't know this, but I'm a twin myself. That made me love this book even more. As for the twins themselves, they were very different but very alike at the same time. Anyway, I just adored and loved Leo Maddox, especially with twin Clara Ryder (which is the one so much like me, it's kind of scary).
"Yeah, well neither could I. You marched over in you swimsuit and laid you fine ass down beside me. I'm not sure what you were reading, but you were biting you lip and blushing. I swear, I couldn't move or think or breathe. That's the real reason i never got up to change or swim. I had to picture my Great-Grandma Bunny the whole time just to keep from embarrassing myself. I couldn't even manage a normal conversation with you." He swept a finger over my shoulder and down the length of me, stopping to trace small circles on my thigh.
Do you have a swoon for me? Comment below and tell me where yours is and I'll check it out!
And if you don't know this book, go find in on goodreads and add it! And when it comes out on March 4th 2014, buy it! I loved it and if you love romance, you'll fall head over heels!
