Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #132
Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews. So many of the books I read have food or drinks in them, some I’d love to try, and others I’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes… If you want to participate, you can grab my logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me in your own post.
The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. Please share the title of the book it happened in, as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something you discovered between the pages of a good read. Please link up beneath, and visit other bloggers who are participating in Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts as well.
Today, my Thirsty Thursday quote is from Jana Aston’s Sure Thing, which I loved! The humor and the steamyness caught me almost off guard 😉
My Thirsty Thursday quote:
“I’ve never eaten French food before,” she admits once we’re inside sat at a table. Her fingertips are tapping the side of the menu and there’s a small crease marring her forehead as she studies the options. “No? If you don’t enjoy it we’ll stop at I Jump on the way back.” Her eyes fly up from the menu and she grins. “You’re an excellent listener, Jennigs.” “I’m a fast learner, too. I already know three different ways to make you come in under ten minutes.” “Oh, my God.” Her eyes widen and a blush covers her cheeks and I wonder if I can run an international travel business form Naperville, Illinois. Or, fuck it, perhaps I can retire at thirty-six and make my life’s work finding the rest of the ways to make Daisy come.
What in the hell did my life look like before this woman? It’s hard to recall.
The waiter collects our drink orders. I order a Manhattan while Daisy selects one of the Rieslings made at the on-site winery. She examines the interior of the restaurant, her eyes resting briefly on the wooden-beamed ceiling, chairs covered in a blue French toile fabric and chandeliers hanging with their cords swagged from hooks in the ceiling. She doesn’t speak until the drinks arrive. She takes a sip of her wine and her eyes widen with pleasure. “Wow. That tastes like I could just suck it down.”
Bloody hell. She did not just say that.
