The point of this feature is to share my favorite quote (or one of the many favorite quotes I have) from a recent read and share why it is a favorite, which will give me the chance to ramble just a bit about a book that I may not get the chance to review. And even if I opt to review a title, I still might create a “My Favorite Quote from…” post because, while most of my reviews do include a favorite quote, I don’t typically get to talk about the many reasons why it is a favorite.
Oh… and I should warn you… in
many most instances there will be gushing.
My Favorite Quote
He held his face an inch from mine. “This is our home tonight. Anywhere with you is my home.” — Kaidan Rowe
I know it’s a super short quote. I would have loved to include just a bit of the lead up to it and a bit of what follows, but it’s from a very, very spoiler-y part of the story so I won’t.
But even though it is short, it is still my favorite quote. It is the line in the book that made me melt. Completely. Nothing but a puddle of me was left behind after reading that quote.
There’s just something about a bad boy not only admitting that “home” is a good thing, but that a girl is his home. Though it’s almost as swoon-worthy when said by any boy.
Home isn’t just a place to lay your head. It’s a place that’s yours. It’s a place where you go to retreat from the world. It’s a place where you feel safe, comfortable.
So the idea that this boy, Kaidan, who probably never had a place that felt like home, saw Anna as his home, completely undid me. He could have told her he loved her a million times and it wouldn’t have made me fall to pieces in the way that seeing her as “home” did.
While this was my favorite quote, I had a lot of favorite quotes and passages in this chapter. And while I’d love to reveal just one or two more, I really shouldn’t. But I can say I absolutely adored the bit about the promise of “introductions.” And for those of you in the know, I have just one word: limes.
What about you?
Have you read SWEET RECKONING? If so, what is your favorite quote and why? (If it is spoiler-y, hints or page numbers only, please.)
Or if you haven’t, what quotes or passages are the most memorable for you in The Sweet Trilogy? Are they all about Kaidan? Or do one or two of them involve Kope or Blake or Jay? Are they quotes (or passages) that have a little – or a lot of – heat?
Or, like me, are they the quotes that make you sigh? Do you sigh for Kai?
About the Book
Evil is running rampant and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of the demons and their oppressive ways.
The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous—especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna’s great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she’s prepared to risk.
In the most sensual and fast-paced installment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom.
