Sunday Swoon #6

Today, I get to share a few snippets from a book I love! no spoilers!

This book is from beloved author Shelly Crane. It is completely from Jude's POV, so it's a little different from what I normally read. Here are some swoon-worthy moments!


Jude has spent the whole twenty one years of his life running. From what, he wasn't quite sure. His mother tried to keep him safe; a low profile, a constant move on the horizon, a week's pay always stashed away. She tried to instill in him that he was special somehow, though would never elaborate. He never felt different. He was so completely normal and vanilla that he wondered if it had all been in her head. But then she was murdered and all he saw was a running silhouette of a man as his mother said three final words to him. Three words that changed his whole being.

Never stop running…

Now he's semi-settled into a big town. The college is huge and easy to blend into. It's been three months since he had to move because 'Biloxi', as he calls the man who killed his mother, found him once more.

Then Marley, an eighteen year old girl who is as infuriating as she is blissfully ignorant of her gorgeousness, smashes into his car with hers. Then smashes into his life as he realizes that whatever it is he has that Biloxi wants, she has it, too. And now, they're after them both.



“She kissed back, once again content to let me take her for a ride wherever I was going. "What a beautiful mess we're in," I murmured.”
Shelly Crane, Smash Into You

“You don't deserve to be taken in a rush, you deserve to be worshiped.”
Shelly Crane, Smash Into You 

“I found the only place I ever wanted to live again in this girl, right her in my arms. I leaned back just barely, ran my thumb from her brow o the tip of her nose and stopped at her lips, loving the way her eyes fluttered. “I’ll always come to you.”
Shelly Crane, Smash Into You 

“You took my soul and wiped all the dirt away, sweetheart. You cured me of all that ached.”
Shelly Crane, Smash Into You 

“I lowered onto the sweetest mouth I'd ever tasted and I never wanted to taste another for, God, thank you, she was the only thing that kept me from falling over the edge to the end of me.”
Shelly Crane, Smash Into You
