Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! 

This week we’re talking about books that make you SWOON! If you haven’t read these, check them out!! They’ll have you swooning just in time for Valentine’s Day! (Oh, and I may have majorly cheated this week. SUE ME. One can never have enough swoon.)

covenant series

lux series


1. Any and all books by Jennifer L. Armentrout: 

If you didn’t know by now… I have a huge author crush on Jennifer Armentrout — as well as on all the swoony swoony boys she writes. No one writes swoon like she does!!

The Covenant series: Aiden St. Delphi – Badass fighter, protective, loving, strong

The Lux series: Daemon Black – Snarky, cocky, fiercely loving

Wait for You: Cameron Hamilton – Sweet, persistent, baker extraordinaire


2. Pushing the Limits series by Katie McGarry: 

These books make me want to clasp them to my chest and hug them. The stories are fantastic and the boys? OH MY GOD, swoontastic.

Pushing the Limits: Noah Hutchins – Bad boy aura, loving brother, caring

Dare You To: Ryan Stone – Athletic, smart, so super sweet

Crash Into You: Isaiah Walker – Tattoos, races cars, rough around the edges but holy crap amazing


3. Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead: 

One of my all time favorite ships EVER – Rose and Dimitri. They are an epic love and the FEELS you guys!

Dimitri Belikov – A freaking warrior god, Russian, fiercely loving, heart melter

Adrian Ivashkov – Caring, arrogant, resides in your dreams


4. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas 


Chaol Westfall – Captain of the Guard, loyal, honorable, so freaking swoony


5. Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis 

Umm, if this town is real, I’m taking a road trip there right now. I mean, it’s like a small town packed chock full of swoon!

Jax (sexy, tool belt slinging man of a man), Ford (sexy sailor), Sawyer (sexy sheriff) — just to name a few. Did you catch the common denominator there?


6. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

The nice boy to give boys everywhere a run for their money. The boy that YOU wish lived next to YOU.

Jase Garrett – sweet, funny, selfless, perfect

7. Lost and Found by Nicole Williams 

Cowboys. Enough said.

Jesse Walker – dimpled, optimistic, honest, sweetest soul ever


8. Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward 

Vampire warriors defending their race – I dare you not to swoon while reading this addictive series! They are all fierce warrior alpha males that will pop up in your dreams if you binge read too much adult paranormal– oh wait, is that just me?


9. Pivot Point by Kasie West 

TREVORRRR – the quiet, understated type that melted my heart right into a puddle


10. The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo 

One of my all time favorite fantasy series! Amazing, amazing story!

Mal – best friend, loving heart, sweet

Sturmhond – cocky, sarcastic, funny, charming

There you have it. Books that make me swoon and I’m positive will make YOU swoon too! What books do you think will make me swoon?

  1. Whaaat whaaaat!!! LOVE YOUR LIST!! You know which ones I have read so I won’t bother telling you. haha I have Lost & Found on my kindle, but never read it. I also haven’t read anything by Jill Shalvis yet even though EVERYONE has told me to. Oh and Pivot Point– I’ve heard that is soooo good. I have that one on my shelf too, as well as the second. Gunna read those soon!

  2. Great list Wendy!! We seem to have excellent taste because we had a lot of overlap! LOL I’ve had Nicole Williams on my to read list forever, I’ll have to keep that in mind for when I need some swoons!

    Happy Tuesday!

  3. Chaol Freaking Westfall!! Glad I’m not the only one who puts the “freaking” in there. Gah he is so freaking swoony. I just got Pushing the Limits which obviously I need to read yesterday. And I also have S&B and S&S sitting on my shelf which I need to read a year ago. I am also extremely intrigued by this Black Dagger Brotherhood series…Kelly and Betty (and some other bloggers I can’t think of right now) and now you. Apparently this is something that I need to read.

  4. Oh, I’m SO with you on Dimitri and Sturmhond. We’re doing our fictional crushes tomorrow and spoiler alert, both those guys are on my list, too!

    AND a couple of your other picks were chosen by some authors as their fictional crushes today for our blog, hee hee. Great minds and all that. 🙂
