That’s what he said is hosted by chapterbreak.net! Every Thursday we post a favorite line from our book boyfriend to his heroine.
Hello lovelies, this week I have a brand new book boyfriend and he is in the Mafia! J.M. Darhower has a new Mafia book coming out and lucky me I got to read an ARC and OMG I just loooved it, and of course, I give you Matteo Barsanti!
“You said one drink.”
A sly smile curved his lips. “I like to keep them coming.”
“Is that right?”
“Absolutely.” Matty stood, leaning across the table, his lips near her ear. “Maybe you’ll let me show you later.”
“This is what I want,” he said quietly. “What I get for winning.”
“You had me,” she whispered, cheeks flushing at the reminder.
“I did,” he agreed. “But the past isn’t what matters. I live in the present, Genna. I live in the NOW. I had you, yeah, but what I want is to HAVE you.”
“Don’t look her in the eyes,” he said quietly. “She’s dangerous.”
She blanched. “What?”
“That’s what they say about you. They have a lot of names for you… the Ice Princess… Medusa… they say you’re the worst kind of monster, the kind that can bring a man to his knees, that can shatter his world with a simple stare.”
“It’s too late for me, though. I already looked the soul-stealer in the eyes.”
“I don’t do things just because they’re easy. Despite what you might think, I don’t have sinister intentions. I risk coming here, because one of us has to take that risk. One of us has to be willing to take the chance.”
He has lots of swoon worthy quotes, I couldn’t resist, I know you guys don’t mind! 😉
