Now here’s a book meme I could sink my teeth into. Whenever I read romance novels, I’m always on the lookout for swoon-worthy quotes, that’s why I couldn’t help but get so excited in Chapter Break’s That’s What He Said Thursday Meme, where I get to choose a line a book boyfriend said to his heroine.
The quotable lines/quotes I chose were taken at the latter part of the stories, usually near the ending. I enjoy reading about a guy’s grand gesture for his heroine, and usually that’s the part when I turn to mush from all the feels. So without further ado, here are my picks:
#1: Bowen to Sera in Risking It All
Anyone who’s familiar with my reading preferences know that I’m a Tessa Bailey fanatic and a staunch Bowen Driscol groupie. This quote was taken from the scene where he was getting pummeled and Sera stepped in to put a stop to it. Bowen was kinda delusional from all the beating when he said this mainly because he knew his lady love wasn’t the kind of person to swear. I loved this quote as it was one of those moments when a strong character was at his most vulnerable and reveals this side of him in such a poignant line.
#2: Oliver to Haley in Playing Autumn
Now this is one of my super, duper faves: a line from a very sweet and perhaps the mother of all grand gestures—Oliver said this to Haley over the phone during his concert in front of thousands of people. You should definitely read the book to know how this scene came about, and if it doesn’t get you swooning all over the place, I don’t know what would.
#3: Xavier to Tamara in Romancing the Bookworm
Tamara had all the right to be angry, especially with the grand scheme that went behind getting her to Maverick Bay on Spring Break, but Xavier was more than contrite. My heart went out to him when he was trying to get Tamara not to hate him after everything he did. But hey, it was kinda cool for a really hot surfer to go out of his way to catch the attention of a woman who wouldn’t want to give him the time of day. Plus points that said man appreciated (and fell in love) with a certified bookworm like Tamara.
