This week, my swoon is from Summer of Sloane by Erin L. Schneider!
[Context: Finn and Sloane just jumped off of a waterfall! For fun.]
My adrenaline is pumping something fierce, my heartbeat so frantic to keep up it stutters against the inside of my chest. And then Finn does something equally crazy. He leans in and kisses me as the spray from the falls kicks up around us. He pulls me close, and this kiss is nothing like the sloppy attempt last night. The moment is so big, from the waterfall to the jumping to my crazy heart that's beating a mile a minute.
He trails soft kisses along the edge of my mouth, and the makes his way along my chin, and finds his way to just below my eat. A wicked shiver courses down my spine as he pulls me in closer.

About the Book:
Summer of Sloane by Erin L. Schneider
Publication Date; May 3, 2016
Warm Hawaiian sun. Lazy beach days. Flirty texts with her boyfriend back in Seattle.
These are the things seventeen-year-old Sloane McIntyre pictured when she imagined the summer she’d be spending at her mom’s home in Hawaii with her twin brother, Penn. Instead, after learning an unthinkable secret about her boyfriend, Tyler, and best friend, Mick, all she has is a fractured hand and a completely shattered heart.
Once she arrives in Honolulu, though, Sloane hopes that Hawaii might just be the escape she needs. With beach bonfires, old friends, exotic food, and the wonders of a waterproof cast, there’s no reason Sloane shouldn’t enjoy her summer. And when she meets Finn McAllister, the handsome son of a hotel magnate who doesn’t always play by the rules, she knows he’s the perfect distraction from everything that’s so wrong back home.
But it turns out a measly ocean isn’t nearly enough to stop all the emails, texts, and voice mails from her ex-boyfriend and ex-best friend, desperate to explain away their betrayal. And as her casual connection with Finn grows deeper, Sloane’s carefree summer might not be as easy to find as she’d hoped. Weighing years of history with Mick and Tyler against their deception, and the delicate possibility of new love, Sloane must decide when to forgive, and when to live for herself.
