Title: For Everly
Author: Raine Thomas
Publisher: lambe Books
Expected Publication: May 27, 2013
Determined to overcome a dark and tragic past, college student Everly Wallace is only months away from earning her degree in physical therapy. She’s consumed with school, caring for her ailing grandfather, and figuring out how to pay the next bill. The last thing she wants is a relationship, but it just might be the one thing she needs.
Major League pitcher Cole Parker hasn’t fought for anything in his life. He went from a privileged upbringing to a multimillion dollar All-Star career. But when his pitching shoulder starts to give him trouble at only twenty-four years old, he faces the possibility of his injury becoming public knowledge and costing him everything.
In a desperate bid to save his career, Cole decides to hire someone to treat his injury, someone who will keep things off the record and out of the media. He finds the perfect solution in Everly. As mysterious as she is beautiful, she provides an enticing distraction from his pain. Soon, physical therapy is the last thing on his mind.
When an act of betrayal brings the truths they both fear to light, Cole will have to fight for the first time in his life…not just for his career, but for Everly’s love.
Why I am looking forward to this: I'm a fan of Raine Thomas's books, although I haven't read them all yet, and I'm curious what she's gonna do with a plain non-fantasy contemporary. I already got my eARC for the tour which is starting on release day and will stop by here May 31.

The ladies over at YA Bound created a sexy meme where you share what made you tingle in your current read.
But instead of the quick peck I'd anticipated, she moved her lips against mine. A burning heat warmed my blood.
It was a slow kiss at first--all I meant it to be, but then Echo touched me. Her hands on my face, in my hair. And then she angled her body to mine. Warmth, enticing pressure on all the right parts, and Echo's lips on mine--fireworks.
She became my world. Filling my senses so that all I felt and saw and tasted was her.
~ Katie McGarry: Pushing the Limits (pg. 385) [+gr]
I loved this. Both Noah and Echo were absolutely amazing characters who made me laugh and grin and cry during this read. And, of course, tingle. I could totally see why Noah would be drawn to her, his siren, as well as I could see why Echo would never find a more perfect match for her, because Noah was one hell of a guy.
So, what did you swoon over today? Link me up!

Elissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. But for the last three years, she’s been struggling with terrifying visions, phantom pains, and mysterious bruises that appear out of nowhere.
Finally, she’s promised a cure: minor surgery to burn out the overactive area of her brain. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the shocking truth behind her hallucinations: she’s been seeing the world through another girl’s eyes.
Elissa follows her visions, and finds a battered, broken girl on the run. A girl—Lin—who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching bruises. The twin sister she never knew existed.
Now, Elissa and Lin are on the run from a government who will stop at nothing to reclaim Lin and protect the dangerous secrets she could expose—secrets that would shake the very foundation of their world.
Why I am lurking on this: I love governments hunting down the things/people that are special and they don't understand. It's so disturbing, it just never gets boring. And I love twins, and clashes like they represent it. I'm pretty sure this is going to be an awesome read!
