My Swoon is from: Taste the Heat (Love and Games #1) by Rachel Harris. Again, I just started reading this book, so I can't really tell you what's going on between Colby and Jason, but I do know Jason is not being truthful of his feeling for Colby.  I love, LOVE Rachel Harris writing style. She is also an awesome storyteller. Rachel Harris could write about dog poop and I would love it. lol The lady is just an amazing writer.

                                                                                Colby and Jason's swoon:

  “Tonight I realized that we’re not that different,” Jason began. “We’ve both been burned by love, and neither of us have any interest in going back in for round two. But we’re human. We have needs. And crazy chemistry.” Colby’s grin stretched into a wicked smile. “what would you say to an arrangement?” he asked.
  “One where it’s understood that feelings are off the table. Just for, companionship, and a whole lot more of this.” He grasped her hips and tugged her closer so there was no mistaking what he meant.
   She shook her head with a smile but locked her ankles around his back. “You had me at crazy chemistry,” she teased. Then her smile faltered a shade and she reminded him, “I’m leaving at the end of the summer.”
  “I know.” He lifted his shoulder in a show of indifference. “It’ll be a summer fling.”
   Colby’s eyes lit up at the word  fling . “That, sir, may just be the best idea I’ve ever heard.” Smashing her mouth against his, she sealed their agreement with a kiss.
   Victory tasted like citrus. He did it. He bought himself an entire summer with Colby, and maybe, just maybe, it would convince her to stay. He could be very persuasive when he needed to be.
   And if his best friend ever found out what he just did, Jason would have his ass kicked.
