Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Intense Romance Reads

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is: Bookish Wishes. That’s a harder topic for me than it seems. The only wish I could think of would be for Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen to write more books together. Crossing my fingers they surprise me someday soon. Instead my topic today is:

Ten Intense Romance Reads

A while ago my blogger friend Nick did a post with some friends on Angst in Romance. I thought it was a fun post and felt inspired, so I thought I would share some intense romances that brought the angst for me.

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is a Quote FREEBIE, so I’m going with:

Ten Fun(ny) Quotes

I’ve done several quote posts over the years. Most of the time they’re sentimental quotes that mean something to me. This times I’m just sharing ones that made me smile or laugh. I apologize in advance because there are some swear words included in these quotes.

1. “I’m going to kill her.”
“Any particular reason you’re plotting her murder?”
“She’s eating everyone’s food, including mine! She ate my cheesecake and my goddamn yogurt!” I gestured wildly, flinging my hands into the air. “Do you know why she’s doing this? She thought people were being totes adorbs and naming the food.”
“Leslie didn’t realize the names on food meant it belonged to someone?”
“Today, she enjoyed a turkey sandwich named Gary. And a yogurt and piece of motherfucking cheesecake named Georgia. She thought it was like, the cutest thing ever how her coworkers were naming food. She’s too dumb to live. Literally.”
-Max Monroe, Tapping the Billionaire

2.“F*ck you. F*ck running. F*ck the beautiful sun. F*ck those chirping birds. F*ck that lady pushing her kid in the stroller. It should be me in that f*cking stroller.”
-Max Monroe, Banking the Billionaire

3.“I don’t know about you, but I have a feeling the sun is the biggest scorned woman of all. She’s hot and temperamental, and f*ck all if you try to look at her directly without permission.”
-Max Monroe, The Day I Stopped Falling for Jerks

4.“I can’t help it. I’m on emotional overload. All hyped up like Jessie Spano that time she took caffeine pills. Nervous. Excited. Freaking out. I am all the things.”
-Max Monroe, My Brother’s Billionaire Best Friend

5.“He looked up at Linus. “I’m glad you’re here.” Linus was touched. “Thank you, Lucy—” “If the cannibals start chasing after us, they’ll see you first. We’re little, and you’ve got all that meat on your bones, so it’ll give us time to get away. Your forthcoming sacrifice is appreciated.”
-T.J Klune, The House in the Cerulean Sea

6.“Do you need a goddamn puppeteer to help you figure out what to do with yourself? Someone to tell you what to say and do?”
“You’re being dramatic. I’m not that bad.”
“Yeah you are. You need a…” I search for the word, Snap my fingers in the silence. “Hairy godmother.”
“A what?”
I’m a fucking genius is what I am. “Hairy godmother. Like a fairy godmother, but a guy.”
Honest to God, I just made that shit up, right now, on the spot.
Clever asshole that I am.”
-Sara Ney, Jock Rule

7.“Also, my brother refused to delay his honeymoon so I could go to the Maldives with them, a place I’ve never been, and is it too much to ask that they f*cking postpone it until February?”
-Sarah Ney, Hard Love

8. “You know why there’s so many bubbles in champagne?”
“Why is that?” I ask, sorta genuinely curious.
“To lift you up.”
-Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby, Man Cuffed

9.“She reaches in her cart and extends a bag of Twizzlers toward me. “Here, you need it more than I do.”
“I’m good. Wouldn’t want you to miss the only fruit in your cart.”
-Kate Stewart, The Guy on the Right

10. Lauren tilted her head to the side. “You know, if we were monkeys, she’d be the kind of person I’d fling my poop at.”
-Emma Hart, The Accidental Girlfriend

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is supposed to be Books with Nature on the Cover.

All of these books include a forest setting.
