Every Thursday we are hosting a brand new meme called: That’s what HE said Thursday. For more info on what this meme is all about click here.
I love that picture, he admitted softly. I think it’s because I love the girl in that picture.
–Evan to Emma
(Reason to Breathe by: Rebecca Donovan)
I know I have share plenty of quotes from this series, but I am super excited to meet Rebecca Donovan this Saturday in Austin so I thought I would share one of my favorite Evan quotes. This one is especially sweet. What a wonderful way for Evan to reveal his feelings for Emma for the very first time.
He touched my cheek. “I’ve loved you for a very long time.”
“I liked you, but I wasn’t ready to marry anyone. I didn’t even know you. I didn’t even know who I was yet. When we got here, I tried to be a husband, but everything felt so awkward and then I felt too stressed with work and pressured by my father to think of romance. … I ruined everything I touched. Eventually, I was certain I couldn’t do anything right. I couldn’t be the lawyer my father wanted or the husband that you needed.”
–John to Emeline
(A White Room by: Stephanie Carroll)
I picked this quote because it is the first time in the book where Emeline learns how her husband truly feels. So far they’ve been mostly existing around each other. There wasn’t much romance in this book, so this was a pretty important moment for them.
