Swoony Saturdates


Good Evening Loves! Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend. As for me, I had quite a busy day. I went dress shopping with my mom for her 60th Masquerade Birthday Party on April 15. It was very fun, but trying on gowns is very tiring. My mom did find 2 gowns she really likes so hopefully one of them will be the winner. She still wants to check out other places before she makes her final decision, but I really hope she picks this deep navy blue gown with a sweetheart neck line and gold accents. Anyway, after dress shopping, my boyfriend and I went to KBBQ dinner with our friends. Sooo good, but  ate too much and now I have this terrible food coma that’s making me really sleepy…BUT… I wanted to post my Swoony Saturdate before going to bed. I had most of it drafted yesterday, but just wanted to add a few more things.

Swoony Saturdates is a weekly segment where I’ll feature one of my favorite book boyfriends and explain some reasons why I think he’s utterly and undeniably swoon-worthy. And just for fun, I’ll occasionally describe an ideal date with the book boyfriend I choose. If you’d like to join me, feel free to do so and leave your links in the comments so everyone can check out your picks. Oh and it’s definitely not limited to just book boyfriends…you can totally pick book girlfriends too! Don’t forget to link back to me so I can see your posts!

Soooo without further ado….Let’s go on a Swoony Saturdate with



Yesterday, I shared some of my favorite quotes from Wait for You by Jennifer L. Armentrout (J.Lynn). It’s only fitting that I feature the handsome, sweet, and super adorable Cameron Hamilton as today’s Swoony Saturdate. I remember reading this book and crushing so hard on Cam. He made me smile, laugh, cry, and swoon like crazy. He’s definitely one of my top Book Boyfriends.



Reasons Why Cam Hamilton is Undeniably and Ridiculously Swoon-Worthy

I’m going to include some quotes that go with my reasons…that way you can get a better picture of why Cam is a total hottie in every swoony way. 

He can bake – I mean seriously ladies, wouldn’t you want your man to bake for you?

“I have cookies.”
“Cookies?” My brows rose.
“Yeah, and I made them. I’m quite the baker.”
For some reason, I couldn’t picture that. “You baked cookies?”
“I bake a lot of things, and I’m sure you’re dying to know all about those things. But tonight, it was chocolate and walnut cookies. They are the shit if I do say so myself.”

“I’m beginning to think cookies is a code word for something else.”
“Maybe it is.” He tugged on my bag again as he took a confident step back, forcing me down another step. “And just think about it. If cookie was a code word, whatever it symbolizes, it’s been in your mouth, sweetheart.”

AND He can cook too!

“W-w-what?” I stepped aside or was forced aside as he entered my apartment, carrying something wrapped in tinfoil, a carton of eggs – huh? – and a tiny frying pan. “Cam what are you doing? It’s eight in the morning.”

“Thanks for the update on the time.” he headed straight for my kitchen. “It’s one thing I’ve never been able to master: the telling of time.”

He’s sweet, romantic, and adorable

“I didn’t know what to say, but my heart was racing as he slid his hands down to mine. He placed them on his chest, right above his heart. “I have hope,” he said, his gaze never leaving mine. “I have hope because I love you-I’ve been in love with you, Avery. Probably before I even realized that I was.”

He’s determined and passionate

“There’s always tomorrow.”
I followed him. “Tomorrow’s not going to change anything.”
“We’ll see.”
“There’s nothing to see. You’re wasting your time.”
“When it concerns you, it’s never a waste of my time,” he replied.”

He’s devastatingly handsome and incredibly sexy

“He was gorgeous in all the ways that made girls do stupid things. He was tall, a good head or two taller than me and broad at the shoulders, but tapered at the waist. An athlete’s body—like a swimmer’s. Wavy black hair toppled over his forehead, brushing matching eyebrows. Broad cheekbones and wide, expressive lips completed the package created for girls to drool over. And with those sapphire-colored eyes, holy moley…”

He’s funny and doesn’t shy away from acting silly or dorky – I absolutely love a man who has a good sense of humor!

“And this must be Avery?”
“Oh, God, no,” Cam said. “This is Candy, Mom.”
His mother’s eyes widened and a bit of color infused her cheeks. “Uh, I’m…”
“I’m Avery,” I said, shooting Cam a look. “You had it right.”
She spun around, smacking Cam across the arm. Hard, too. “Cameron! Oh my God. I thought…” She smacked him again and he laughed. “You’re terrible.”

He also has a pet turtle named  Raphael… yup named after the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I mean isn’t that just the cutest thing ever!?

But most of all, Cam is loving, kind, protective and just an amazing guy who will do everything he can for the people he loves. Not to mention, he’s also a great big brother.

If you’re into NA romances with a little steam, I definitely think you should check out this book and series. Cam is my favorite for sure, but the other male leads in the series are totally swoony too!

I hope you enjoyed this Swoony Saturdate post. Have a fantastic night loves!



Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Books of 2017


Hello lovelies! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is – Favorite Books of 2017. I read a lot of really fantastic books this year, so it’s going to be difficult to pick just 10. I was also going to wait until beginning of next year to do a post about all my bookish favorites this and that cause there’s still 19 days left in 2017.

Lust and attraction are powerful things, but they pale in comparison to the feeling resting deep in my pounding chest, a sense of euphoria so strong it goes beyond the physical to something bigger. And instead of an insistent pulse between my thighs, Jack’s kiss makes my toes tingle, my breath hitch and gives me butterflies like I’ve never before felt. It’s intoxicating beyond words.
            “Jack,” I moan breathlessly against the softness of his lips, pleading for the feel of his hard body against the softness of my own. He gets on the bed, sliding the length of his firm body against me. I moan; my sex clenches with appreciation. The strong emotions rolling around in my chest are too much to bear and a frenzy overtakes me. I spread my legs and reach for him. He catches my hand lightning quick, pressing a kiss to my fingers before grabbing both hands and pinning them there with one of his.
            “You are such a fragrant and beautiful blossom, rare and precious.” He looks into my eyes as he speaks, letting the emerald green orbs convey to me that this is no empty compliment. My whole body vibrates with the need to be touched by him. My chest fills with excitement, my breasts rising and falling with each shuddering breath.
            Jack pulls his gaze from mine momentarily, dropping his mouth to my nipple and teasing the pebbled point with a flick of his tongue. Then he settles between my thighs. My pussy is tender and sore from fucking Hudson, and Colden, and Gabriel.
            Jack pushes his erect cock into my core with agonizing slowness. He keeps the verdant fathoms of his perfect eyes locked on mine, pinning my hips with his own. The generous swells of his muscular arms trapping mine above my head. But it’s the scope of profound understanding I see in his eyes that truly holds me captive. I feel exposed under his intense scrutiny. Jack’s gaze seem pierce right through me.
