That's What He Said Thursday #22


That's What He Said Thursday is a weekly meme created 
and hosted bChapter Break. It's a fun way to share a quote 
from a favorite book boyfriend (aka male protagonist) to his girl.
For more info, visit Chapter Break here.

With the release of Up in Flames last week, the Rosemary Beach series by Abbi Glines has come to an end. I was going through some of my favorite passages and came across this quote from Grant to Harlow during a time when they were separated (well, she had left and wouldn't contact him). The messages he left her were so heartfelt and this was one of my favorites. 


"This is the fifty-seventh message. Fifty seven days. I’m sitting here staring out at the Gulf, like I used to do with you. Nothing is the same without you here. Everything reminds me of you. If I could hear your voice tonight, Harlow, if I could just hear you tell me you’re OK . . . I would be better. I would be able to take a deep breath. Then I’d beg. I would beg you to forgive me. I would beg you to love me.” - Grant, One More Chance

When it comes to romance, what are your favorite genres/sub-genres? Contemporary, historical, suspense, sports, new adult, time travel, military... what do you gravitate to?

  1. I most love romantic suspense probably followed by contemporary -- at least that's what I read the most!!

    1. I can't remember the last time I read romantic suspense. It's just not something I tend to reach for. But I do love my contemporary! :)

  2. Funnily enough I've yet to read a Glines book. I don't get it either.
    I've heard a lot of people being disappointed with this latest release though.
    I'm not sure where I'll start when I eventually get to reading one of her books.

    1. Well I wasn't all jazzed about the final book anyway since it's about freaking Nan (uber bitch who is unredeemable in my eyes). Plus I've read some really crappy reviews so I basically have zero expectations now. Sad because I've loved the whole series. At least I can move on to her Sea Breeze series at some point. I hear that ended much better.

  3. I like a good romantic suspense, but I definitely love the love hate kind of relationships. I just love the banter they tend to have in those kinds of books. I'm still on the fence about Abbi, even though one of her series is one of my faves. Maybe I'll check this out!

    1. Now I'm curious about which series by Abbi you like, Jazmen? Is it the Sea Breeze series? I actually haven't started that one yet even though I own the whole series. I'm excited to start it!
      And I love the love/hate ones, too. You're so right in that they tend to have the best banter. :)
