Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #144

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 Thirsty Thursday quote is from The Charmer by Avery Flynn. There was a lot of humor in this one, and I really enjoyed the romance as well, as it was a bit reluctant. Felicia felt like she needed some liquid courage, as the museum she worked at had a fundraiser. And she was not feeling up to task to be up close to Harbor City’s finest.

My Thirsty Thursday quote:

“Let me guess, your massive ego turns into a magic wand?” “That’s not what most women call it – well, except the ‘massive’ part.” He winked and almost laughed out loud when her eyes widened. One of her dainty hands snagged a glass of champagne from a passing waiter, and she tossed the whole thing back like a trooper. When she set the empty glass back on the bar, her shoulders shook with silent laughter. “I can’t believe you started this conversation about one man and expertly turned it into a dissertation about your own junk.”
“I wouldn’t call this a ‘dissertation’. More like a thesis statement at this point, wouldn’t you agree?” He spied a waiter at the end of the bar refilling his tray with bubbly, and Hudson subtly nodded for service. While this conversation was turning to one of his favorite topics – himself – he needed to steer things back to Tyler. “But I think I can help you snag Tyler without the aid of my ‘magic wand.'” He squashed the immediate revolt in his pants and grabbed two flutes of champagne from the offered tray. He handed one to Felicia, curious if she’d pound this one back, too. “You think so, do you?” she asked, all eyes for Tyler while she sipped at the bubbly liquid. Pity.

  1. Let me guess, your massive ego turns into a magic wand?” “That’s not what most women call it – well, except the ‘massive’ part.” LOL Is it possible to already love a book without reading it? 😛

  2. Omigosh! I’m giggle-snorting over this excerpt! And you just moved this series up in priority! I hope The Negotiator has as much humor!
    The week’s almost over, wifey. How did that happen?!? {{{BIG HUGS}}}

  3. I really liked reading this excerpt. I feel like there’s going to be a lot of trouble when it comes to this romance… it’s always difficult being stuck in the role of wingman when you don’t really want to be there…
