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 want to take you out on a date. I want to take you horseback riding. I want to tell your brother. I want to take you home to my parents and introduce you as my girlfriend. I want to prove this means more to me. I want to do this the right way.
–Jase to Tess
(Be With Me by: J. Lynn)
SWOON! So if a guy said this to me, I would melt! So perfect! I mean right down to the horseback riding part! lol. Just exchange the word “brother” for “parents” and wow! Perfect right there. I really enjoyed this book. It is the second book I have read by J. Lynn and liked this one better than the first one. Jase and Tess are good together. Jase is Tess’s older brother’s best friend. There is already built in tension right there. And Jase has a few issues of his own going on that made the story interesting to read. I like that the “secret” was revealed right away so that at least half of the book was dedicated to Tess and Jase working things out. Most books string the reader along and reveal the big bad secret at the end with the two main characters blindly promising to work through things and the end! This book did not do that. Jase and Tess work on things right in front of the reader. I really enjoyed reading that. It made their love story that much better.
Nothing before you counts. And I can’t even imagine an after.
I just mean that … I want to be the last person who ever kisses you, too… That sounds bad, like a death threat or something. What I’m trying to say is, you’re it. This is it for me.
–Park to Eleanor
(Eleanor & Park by: Rainbow Rowell)
All the exchanges between Eleanor and Park were awesome in their own way. In this situation, Park was telling Eleanor that he only wants her, and of course, Eleanor can’t react without freaking out. She is such an awkward turtle character.
