This week quotes is courtesy of the Sharing Space series by Nina Perez. I had the most absolute fun reading this series over the week and loved it.

Book 1 - Roommate Wanted (Chloe and Patrick first meet and he doesn't exactly look Irish...)



"Are you Irish? You don't look Irish."


He smirked again and I realized it was the way he smiled that gave off the smartass impression. The right side of his mouth went up in kind of a half smile. There was something cocky yet boyish about it. 


"Yes, I am. My brothers tease that my father was really the mailman. My sisters prefer the whole mommy and daddy found you in the garbage tale."

"I guess I expected fair skin, red hair, freckles-"


"And a vagina. You also expected a vagina."

My mouth fell open in surprise. We'd just met. He couldn't toss around vagina jokes! He ignored the look on my face and kept going. 


"The fair skin, red hair, and freckles would be my older sister, Margaret, and my brother Liam. And before you ask there are seven of us: in order from oldest to younges are Thomas, Kellam, Margaret, Catherine, Liam, myself and Charlotte." He ticked off each name with his fingers. "What about you?"

"Me? I'm not Irish." I said. 


He Squinted at me briefly and then laughed. I joined in after a moment. 


Book 2 - Family Ties (The First Kiss...)

This kiss started off as awkward and chaste, but with all the neck caressing, pelvic pressing and tongue, it soon became exploratory and in a word, hot. 


"Wow." That was all he said and, even though there were dozens of thoughts rushing around my brain, "wow" seemed to sum this up quite nicely. 


Book 3 - Slow Burn (Crystal, Chloe's cousin joking on her because she hasn't slept with Patrick yet...)


"You haven't had sex yet?" I thought Crystal's eyes were going to pop out of her head. 

"No, settle down."


"Why not?"

"I told you. We're taking it slow."


"Ha!" Crystal cackled. "Girl, there's taking it slow and then there's standing still. And you two are going in reverse."


"Stop laughing. Don't make me sorry I told you."


"Sorry. You know I'm just messing with you. Seriously are you afraid or something?"


"What would I have to be afraid of?"


"I don't know. You tell me. You're the one all wrapped up but not giving him any. Oh, I can't wait to see this white boy. He must be something. You sitting there blushing. He got your nose wide open."


"I'm leaving"


Book 4 - Taking Chances (Patrick first meets Chloe's mom who is a retired NYC detective...)

"Hello Patrick. She walked towards me, extending her hand. 

"It's nice to meet you, Mrs. Brooks."

"Are you a good guy?"


Her question took me by surprise.

"Mother," Chloe said sharply. 

"I'm not sure I understand."


Mrs. Brooks crossed her arms over her chest and rested her weight on one hip. She made eye contact and I was afraid to even blink. "Chloe tells me you're a good guy. I just want to know if that's true."

"I, uh, try to be?"


"Is that a question?"


"No, I am. A good guy."


"For your sake, you better be."

"Okay, that's it!" Chloe came over and slipped her arm around my waist. "You're scaring the hell out of him."

"Oh calm down, Chloe. I'm just messing with him." Her stern face dissolved into a smile followed by deep laughter, but I wasn't so sure she had been. 


Book 5 - Winter Wishes (getting ready for New Year's Eve...)


"I'm going with WTF. It's a bright red. I figure since I'm already dressed like a hooker-"

"What-the-hell-ever. I picked out that dress. You do not look like a hooker. If Patrick has any sense, he's going to love you in that dress."

Book 6 - Before Forever (the proposal...)

"I love you. More than any woman I've ever known or will know. I'm always going to love you. Everything that we've been through these past few months doesn't matter. That was the before."

"Before what?" I tried to swallow the large sump in my throat. 

"Before forever." He pulled a black ring box out of his pocked and opened the lid. His hands were shaking and that, more than the beautiful diamond ring inside the box, made me cry. 

Well, that's it. My quotes from all six books in the Sharing Space series.
