Let’s go on a Swoony Saturdate with




(Googling Aaron Warner and I stumbled upon this Yumminess. I don’t know who this guy is, but he is HOT and looks so much like the Warner I imagine. So thank you to whoever chose this photo.)

Reasons Why Aaron Warner is Deliciously and Outrageously Swoon-Worthy 

He’s complex and broken, but definitely beautiful in so many ways. When you first meet him, Warner is absolutely cruel, incredibly manipulative, and extremely possessive of Juliette. He kills, hurts, and lies. He’s the meanest, baddest, biggest jerk you’ve ever met. BUTTTTTTT there’s something about him that just entices and you want to find out more about him. As you keep reading, you get a glimpse of his softer side whenever he’s interacting with Juliette. AND…. I don’t want to ruin it for you, but damn… he turns out to be this really amazing guy and I can’t even. He’s just beautiful!

“He’s breathing like he’s lost his mind and he’s looking at me like something has broken inside of him, like he’s woken up to find that his nightmares were just that, that they never existed, that it was all just a bad dream that felt far too real but now he’s awake and he’s safe and everything is going to be okay and
I’m falling.
I’m falling apart and into his heart and I’m a disaster.”


He LOVES with all his heart and soul. Warner has been burned and hurt in the past so he’s very guarded with his heart. He’s terrified to trust, love, and feel any emotions. BUT, when he falls for Juliette, he goes all in and doesn’t ever hold anything back. His love is so intense you can feel everything his going through. He loves so passionately that I cannot get enough of him. And the more you know about him, the more you just fall in love with him.

I can’t understand why I can still hear him speaking because I’m dead, I’m already dead, I’ve died over and over and over again.
He swallows, hard, his chest heaving, his words a breathless, shaky whisper when he says “I’m so-I’m so desperately in love with you-”

“He’s looking so deeply into my eyes that I’m surprised I haven’t buckled under the intensity and I realize then, right in this moment I realize that everything about him is intense. Nothing about him is manageable or easy to compartmentalize. He’s too much. Everything about him is too much. His emotions, his actions, his anger, his aggression. His love.”

He cares deeply and will do anything to protect the people he loves. 

He believes in Juliette and encourages her to just be herself. 

“Warner thinks I’m strong and smart and capable and he actually values my opinion. He makes me feel like his equal–like I can accomplish just as much as he can, and more. And if I do something incredible, he’s not even surprised. He expects it. He doesn’t treat me like I’m some fragile little girl who needs to be protected all the time.”


He’s actually silly and pretty funny too. Oh and his love for fashion is just too endearing. 

“Aaron Warner Anderson, chief commander and regent of Sector 45, son of the supreme commander of The Reestablishment.

He has a soft spot for fashion.” 

AND he’s handsome, charming, kind, sweet, and perfect… He’s just the most imperfect perfect book boyfriend ever for all the reasons I’ve mentioned and so many more. IYou need to read this series and just know him for yourself. 

“I promise myself then, in that moment, that I will hold him forever, just like this, until all the pain and torture and suffering is gone, until he’s given a chance to live the kind of life where no one can wound him this deeply ever again.”



I really hope you enjoyed this Swoony Saturdate with Warner. Who are some of your favorite book boyfriends? Don’t forget to leave your comments down below and have a wonderful day!


Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Book Quotes


Hello my fellow book lovers and welcome to another segment of Top Ten Tuesday! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and has been moved to That Artsy Reader Girl since January 16, 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is Favorite Book Quotes. If you’ve been following me for a while, then you may have seen my Favorite Quotes Fridays posts where I share some of my favorite book quotes from a book I’ve read and loved. They can be inspirational, funny, heartwarming, adorable or swoony. For today’s post, I’ll be sharing book quotes that made me swoon and aww, so be prepared to have some epic FEELS!

unravelme“I want to be the friend you fall hopelessly in love with. The one you take into your arms and into your bed and into the private world you keep trapped in your head. I want to be that kind of friend. The one who will memorize the things you say as well as the shape of your lips when you say them. I want to know every curve, every freckle, every shiver of your body. 

I want to know where to touch you, I want to know how to touch you. I want to know convince you to design a smile just for me. Yes, I do want to be your friend. I want to be your best friend in the entire world.”  

“I want so many things,” he whispers. “I want your mind. Your strength. I want to be worth your time.” His fingers graze the hem of my top and he says “I want this up.” He tugs on the waist of my pants and says “I want these down.” He touches the tips of his fingers to the sides of my body and says, “I want to feel your skin on fire. I want to feel your heart racing next to mine and I want to know it’s racing because of me, because you want me. Because you never,” he says, he breathes, “never want me to stop. I want every second. Every inch of you. I want all of it.”

theone“Break my heart. Break it a thousand times if you like. It was only ever yours to break anyway.”

“I want everything with you, America. I want the holidays and the birthdays, the busy season and lazy weekends. I want peanut butter fingertips on my desk. I want inside jokes and fights and everything. I want a life with you.” 



“You drive me insane June. You’re the scariest, most clever, bravest person I know, and sometimes I can’t catch my breath because I’m trying so hard to keep up. There will never be another like you. You realize that, don’t you? Billions of people will come and go in this world, but there will never be another like you.” 


thenotebook“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.” 

“I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I’ve ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours. ”

deanholderAnd I’m not ready to tell you I’m in love with you, because I’m not. Not yet. But whatever this I’m feeling – it’s so much more than like…And for the past few weeks I’ve been trying to figure it out. I’ve been trying to figure out why there isn’t some word to describe it. I want to tell you exactly how I feel but there isn’t a single goddamned word in the entire dictionary that can describe this point between liking you and loving you, but I need that word…”
“Living,”she finally whispers.
“I live you, Sky…I live you so much.”

“I’m pretty sure it’s too soon to love her, but shit. She’s got to stop doing and saying these unexpected things that make me want to fast-forward whatever’s going on between us. Because I want to kiss her and make love to her and marry her and make her have my babies and I want it all to happen tonight” 

igniteme“His hands are holding my cheeks, and he pulls back just to look me in the eye and his chest is heaving and he says, “I think,” he says, “my heart is going to explode,” and I wish, more than ever, that I knew how to capture moments like these and revisit them forever. 

Because this.

This is everything.” 

Bonus (because I love this series so much and Restore Me comes out today!!!)

“It’s the kind of kiss that inspires stars to climb into the sky and light up the world.”
