Quote-tastic Monday: Accidentally on Purpose by Jill Shalvis

accidentally-on-purposeI wanted to read this book as soon as it was released, but I was in the middle of another series (one of which I need to review as well) and I just couldn’t get to it FOR ALMOST A WEEK!  I mean really, I had to wait a week to read the new Jill Shalvis book.  That’s cruel and unusual punishment.  And, like normal, I was laughing out loud from the first page.  My poor husband . . . I kept interrupting his reading to make him listen to passages.

So without any further buildup, here are a few of my favorite quotes.  And no, I didn’t include the one from the first page.

“It’s just tea, you weirdo. And I could totally survive without it if I needed to.” She paused. “I just can’t guarantee anyone else’s safety.”

Personally, I love my tea, but I don’t feel I am a danger to anyone else without it.  Don’t get between me and my Diet Coke however.

“Okay,” Max piped up. “I have a girlfriend now so I know this one. When Rory says ‘wow’ like that, it’s not a compliment. It means she’s thinking long and hard on how and when I’ll pay for my stupidity.”

Another word that men need to look out for is “fine.”  When a woman says fine in the middle of an argument, it’s never really fine and she certainly isn’t agreeing with anyone.

He snorted. “Elle, you’re always right. It’s your world and we all just live in it.”

Love it!  Love it!  Love it!

Read this book!  Read it now!  Don’t wait like I did.  It deserves your immediate consumption.

Quote-tastic Monday: And yes, I know it’s not Monday

Thursday!  Thursday’s the new Monday, right?  Lord, I hope not.  I’d hate to go through this week again.  Anyway, better late than never comes this week’s Quote-tastic Monday.  (And no, I’m not discussing the fact that I missed last week altogether.)

Jill Shalvis’ new book The Trouble with Mistletoe came out this past Tuesday (Okay, two Tuesdays!  I’m behind in everything!) and I read it on its release day.  The fact that I was in the middle of another book which I need to finish for review did not matter.  It was a new Jill Shalvis people.  There are priorities after all.

Anyway, Keane is petsitting/has inherited a cat from his aunt and he has no idea on how to care for her.  The cat is destroying his house and is not hesitant to show her opinion of Keane.

. . . And then she . . .” He trailed off and appeared to chomp on his back teeth.

“What?”

“Took a dump in my favorite running shoes.”

Willa owns a pet salon and gift shop, so he goes to her for help.  Unfortunately for him, she knows and hates him from high school . . . and he doesn’t even remember her.  Not the best situation in which to be asking for a favor.

Fortunately for Keane, Willa is a soft touch particularly where animals are concerned.

“What’s her name?” she asked.

“Petunia, but I’m going with Pita.  Short for pain in the ass.”

I love it!  It reminds me of the old Disney movie “That Darn Cat” in which the cat was called DC for Darn Cat.  The original pre-Disney version was That Damn Cat or at least that is what I have heard.

Anyway, the book is wonderful and the second in her Heartbreaker Bay series.  Grab it.  It’s lots of fun.
