Come join every Thursday by posting a favorite line from your book boyfriend to his heroine. Keep in mind these are direct quotes from dialogue in a book. It is NOT a physical description of a male protag or a paragraph of dialogue. It is a line spoken by our favorite heroes to their lucky ladies.

“What is it?” Emma said. “You’re staring at me.”
“I wanted to thank you,” I said.
She wrinkled her nose at me and squinted like I’d said something funny. “Thank me for what?” she said.
“You give me the strength I didn’t know I had,” I said. “You make me better.”

I have had my copy of Hollow City for nearly a year. As photographer, I am a huge fan of how Riggs takes old photographs and weaves an exciting story around them. The above conversation happens between Emma and Jacob early in the the story. I knew he liked her, but this sudden revelation caught me by surprise as much as it did Emma.

    • I devoured the sequel! The ending was quite surprising. My review should be up in March, I think. I’m so far ahead on reviews, I’m not sure when my next open date is.
