Every Thursday we are hosting a meme called: That’s what HE said Thursday. For more info on what this meme is all about click here. This week, I’m changing it up to That’s what SHE said. It’s time for some strong women to get what they want!
Everything where this guy was concerned had forced me to be the aggressor, the pursuer, and I kind of liked the idea of finally winning the reward for not being afraid of going after something forbidden and oh so enticing.
“You cared about me when I was having a really hard time caring about myself. You have always challenged me and never once made me feel like a pretty showpiece and nothing more. You have always valued me, Asa, and I can’t tell you how important that was for me.”
–Royal Hastings to Asa Cross
(Asa (Marked Men #6) by: Jay Crownover
I like this quote because Royal takes charge in Asa, pursing him, instead of the usual the guy persuing the girl. The first quote is Royal’s inner monolgue. I think women should be more confident in the chase. We need more GIRL POWER in romance books! And the second quote is great because Royal is finally coming into herself. She’s very pretty, and finally met someone who sees below the outer beauty, to her true self.
