Sexy Sentence Saturday: Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

sexy sentence saturday

Today’s Sexy Sentence Saturday comes from Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning. The Fever series is one of my top 5 favorites, and I don’t mind admitting that back when I first read it in 2011 I was truly booksessed for quite a long time. Here are some of my favorite quotes from book one…

“I love books, by the way, way more than movies. Movies tell you what to think. A good book lets you choose a few thoughts for yourself.”

“You want to believe in black and white, good and evil, heroes that are truly heroic, villains that are just plain bad, but I’ve learned in the past year that things are rarely so simple. The good guys can do some truly awful things, and the bad guys can sometimes surprise the heck out of you.”

“He studied me with his predator’s gaze, assessing me from head to toe. I studied him back. He didn’t just occupy space; he saturated it. The room had been full of books before, now it was full of him. About thirty, six foot two or three, he had dark hair, golden skin, and dark eyes. His features were strong, chiseled. I couldn’t pinpoint his nationality any more than I could his accent; some kind of European crossed with Old World Mediterranean or maybe an ancestor with dark Gypsy blood. He wore an elegant, dark gray Italian suit, a crisp white shirt, and a muted patterned tie. He wasn’t handsome. That was too calm a word. He was intensely masculine. He was sexual. He attracted. There was an omnipresent carnality about him, in his dark eyes, in his full mouth, in the way he stood. He was the kind of man I wouldn’t flirt with in a million years.”

“I’ve spent enough time behind a bar that I’ve formed a few opinions about what people wear and what it says about them. Guys who wear black from head to toe fall into two categories: they want to be trouble, or they are trouble.”

“Last night you said you wanted to know what to expect so you could better select your attire. I told you we were going to visit a vampire in a Goth-den tonight. Why, then, Ms. Lane, do you look like a perky rainbow?”

“I’d never been turned on by the Ken doll—even before I looked down his pants and saw what was missing”

“If he was winter, I was summer. If I was sunshine, he was night. A dark and stormy one.”

“Barrons had just given me the most carnal, sexually charged hungry look I’d ever seen in my life, and I was pretty sure he didn’t even know he had done it.”

“There are only really two positions one can take toward anything in life: hope or fear. Hope strengthens, fear kills.”

“He wasn’t just masculine and sexual, he was carnal in a set-your-teeth-on-edge kind of way; he was almost frightning.”

If you haven’t had the pleasure of adding Jericho Barrons to your unending list of book boyfriends yet?!? You need to get on that now 😉
