Safe and Sexy #29
Thinking of my romances and safe sex at the same time started when I wrote my discussion post with the same name a long time ago! Not too long after, the idea of sharing quotes about that ensured that the feature Safe and Sexy was born. It’s where I will share a quote from a story I have read, and where there is a lot of hotness and sexiness, but where they still take the time to be safe! It’s important to me to read books that make me dream, but I also want them to be somewhat realistic. And to me, characters seem realistic when they take care of themselves and their partner(s)! Safe sex is a great way to do so, and when an author includes a couple of lines to share that they are indeed using condoms, I am such a happy reader. And I think it’s sexy when both new and ‘old’ lovers show that they respect each other by getting that condom, and possibly making using it both safe & sexy, hot and fun.
If you want to participate with your very own Safe and Sexy quotes, go right ahead. The more the merrier, and maybe your quote will help me add a new book to my bloated TBR shelf 😉 One can never have enough books, right? Without further ado, here’s my Safe and Sexy quote for this week, it’s from Right Where We Belong by Brenda Novak.
My Safe and Sexy quote:
It took some self-restraint to break away. But before this went any further, she had to ask him a question. “Do you have birth control? Because I stopped taking the pill…” Looking slightly dazed, he lifted his head. “I grabbed a couple of condoms when I went home.” “A couple?” “Okay, three. Since tonight’s all we have, I didn’t want to be caught shorthanded.” “Sounds as if we’re going to make the most of our time together.” He gave her a devilish grin. “We’re definitely going to do that.”
She liked the conviction in that statement, the license it gave her to cut loose and enjoy his body without reservation or restraint.
