Swoon Worthy Saturday is hosted by Hazel at Stay Bookish.
My Swoon Worthy boyfriend this week, that makes all the butterflies in my stomach flutter, is...Quinn Hamilton from With Every Heartbeat (Forbidden men #4) by Linda Kage
Quinn Hamilton isn't your typical popular, bad-boy book boyfriend. He is buy that blushes, is shy and is a complete gentlemen.
The Gist of Quinn Hamilton
1. Shy, sweet, has manners
2. Loves Biology (I do to! *fangirls*)
3. Loyal to no end.
4. Gives biology lessons (if you no what I mean *wink wink*)
5. Extremely intelligent
6. Dark, abusive past, jaded
7. He blushes when girls flirt with him, I mean how much more adorable can he get?
8. Has a heart of gold.
Quinn Hamilton, I would marry him if I ever had the chance, he is so adorable, he has dimples and irresistible grins and blushing cheeks with the boy next door look.
I used to think everything was black and white, truth or lie, easy or hard, that if I could just escape my strict, overbearing, abusive father, my life would be perfect. But since I’ve found a reason to risk his wrath and leave, to help a friend in need, I’ve come to realize everything I thought I knew is wrong.
Friends have their own agenda, honesty comes with a dosage of lie, easy doesn’t even exist, keeping secrets sucks, and love...love is the most painful thing of all.
Maybe if Quinn Hamilton hadn’t asked me to skip classes for the day and help him pick out an engagement ring for my best friend, I wouldn’t have fallen for him so completely on that sunny Tuesday afternoon and I wouldn’t feel so conflicted. But I did, and I can’t take it back, no matter how hard I try. So I have to deal with the fact that even I’m not as good, or honest, or caring as I’d always thought I was, and no matter what I do next, someone’s going to get hurt. Probably me.
Swoon Worthy Quotes:
“want to save lives, but art, like the stories you want to write...that’s the kind of stuff that makes life worth living.”
“stories are a way to connect with others and realize we’re not alone in our crazy, mixed-up thoughts. I think what you do is important. It keeps introverted people like me from going insane.”
