Welcome to Thursday Quotable! This feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week. Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotable is where my favorite lines will be, and you’re invited to join in!
This week I have three quotes to share. I normally try to put four, but I’m not going to push it. I’ll post as many as I collect during the week. I’ll also try not to add more than four.
First, my eyes fall on Paige where she’s tucked up to my side with her head on my chest, but there’s an arm around her waist. My body goes rigid as I start to sit up, but Paige holds me down.
“It’s only Ari. I’m fine,” she mumbles, her voice thick with sleep.
Rion lifts his head from behind Ari. “And me.” He Smiles.
Fingers on my stomach, and not the ones of my mate, move and draw my attention to the person on the other side of me. “Morning sunshine.”
“Solomon get out of my bed! And get your hands off of me!” I yell and sit up fast enough that a shirtless Solomon is thrown from his spot next to me, causing him to crash to the floor.
“Nice way to say thank you! I was here all night comforting you and this is how I’m repaid?”
This is my favorite scene of this entire book!
Note: This next quote is taken as a transcription as I pulled it from an audiobook. It’s not a direct or accurate quote from the book.
Vivian: Why dont I want to drink your blood? Do you not have any? Let me guess. You run on caffeine and souls of the dead?
Grimm: Did you ever consider that my blood is too rich for you?
Vivian: Come on. Maybe you should donate to a good cause. For mere droplets a day, you too can help a starving vampire in need.
Grimm: This doesn’t sound tax deductible.
Her: Blue bloods….
This book is full of quirky humorous little scenes like this. I really do enjoy this book. I’m glad I didn’t judge this book by its cover!
Her copper-haired guardian knelt next to Remy, fretting over her like a child. She reached a hand to the swollen lump on Remy’s forehead and spun towards the prince.
“What did you do to her?” she accused.
“Nothing,” the prince said, shrugging. He craned his neck back to look back at Remy and with a cat-like smile, said. “She did that all herself.”
“Bastard,” Remy hissed.
Heather stifled a gasp. She grabbed Remy’s arm in a silent warning. Remy rolled her eyes. He was the Bastard Prince of the East after all.
“Very original, Red.” Hale’s lips thinned and his eyes narrowed at her.
“Don’t call me Red,” Remy Snarled.
She didn’t like this prince talking about her red witch magic. Even if they were in a ruin in the middle of the forest, there was no telling who else might hear.
“Then don’t call me ‘bastard’,” the prince rumbled back.
“Kids, kids.” A feminine voice called from across the darkness.
As if the scene wasn’t hilarious enough, the ending does it best for me. I can’t wait to dive into the rest of this book! It’s a great book with a great start!
I’d love to see some of your favorite quotes of the week!
