Safe and Sexy
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 from the soon-to-be-released Secrets of a (Somewhat) Sunny Girl by Karen Booth.
My Safe and Sexy quote:
This was everything I’d thought about that morning we had breakfast. Everything I’d fantasized about over the last few weeks. Everything I would’ve killed for after I left Ireland, when I had to lie in my bed at night and try to sleep, all while my brain wouldn’t stop remembering the magic of every moment with him.
I didn’t bother asking if he had a condom. I opened my bedside table drawer and plucked one from the box. I rolled it onto him. One step closer to what I wanted. And then I stretched out next to him. Goosebumps dotted my arms. There was nothing else between us, no more space, no more distance. The universe had pulled me back into the arms of the only man my heart wanted the way my lungs wanted to breathe.
Thanks for stopping by today. Don’t forget to include your Safe & Sexy post in the linky. Have a fantastic Friday and happy reading.
