Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #135

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.

This week, my Hungry Hearts quote is from Scored by Harper Sloane, and it’s really funny, because the heroine is doing her best to resist the hero’s charm 😀

My Hungry Hearts quote:

Scored cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews - Weekend Wrap-up


My blood heated right back up with a healthy dose of irritation – maybe just the slightest hint of infatuation, too. Cheeseburgers. Pizza.
For some reason I couldn’t rid myself of the delicious food metaphor thoughts I’d cooked up earlier and then it dawned on me that I hadn’t eaten dinner. 
“You want to grab something to eat later?” Matt rubbed a hand on his stomach over his shirt. “I didn’t eat earlier.”
Get out of my head, Matt! You don’t know my life!
“I don’t know. It’ll be pretty late.” I faked a yawn. For what reason, I wasn’t sure. It wasn’t even eight yet. He gave me another side eye. Matt seemed to enjoy side-eyeing me. Or perhaps it was because I was purposely saying things that warranted a side eye.
Maybe this was a good chance to test him. “Maybe we can just pick something up for in the car on the way home?” “Sure, if you want.” He kept his slow pace without missing a beat. 
Well, just – fine, Matt!
If he’d been a neat freak I could’ve pointed out how much I hated to clean. But no, he had to be all blasé about ordering fast food in his hybrid Mercedes that probably cost more money than I’d made in the past four years.

  1. Haha That is funny! She seems to have been trying very hard to come up with reasons to *not* like him but I’m guessing it doesn’t work out too well for her. 🙂
