‘I saw her; Dimple Shah. So I walked up to her and made a totally stupid joke about us beginning the rest of our lives together. And she…she threw her coffee at me and ran away.’ (p.27)
‘…And then she smiled a smile so dazzling, Rishi tripped over his own feet.’ (p.66)
‘Wonder Woman is sort of my girl crush.’ (p.68) UM, YES!
'Rishi froze, his eyes gazing down right into hers. They weren’t more than three inches apart. Strange things were happening in the pit of his stomach. Fun things.’ (p.72)
'Even though this was the first day he’d spent any kind of extended time with Dimple, he felt like he already knew her. Like they were continuing a conversation they’d left off.' (p.80)
‘Rishi was a naturally good friend, she could tell, the kind of guy who thought your every fight was his as well.’ (p.89)
‘The elevator doors pinged open, and the group of obnoxious guys stepped in.
"Wait for the next one?" Rishi murmured, and Dimple nodded gratefully. One of the guys held his hand out so the door wouldn't close, but Rishi smiled brightly. "Oh no, you go ahead," he said jovially. "Our brains need a break from all the overwhelming idiocy."
The guy immediately smiled and waved in response, but as the doors closed, they heard him say, "Wait, what'd he say?"’ (p.198)
‘She was so close he could smell that coconut jasmine shampoo. He felt the warmth of her rushing over him, through him. Her eyes were huge behind her glasses, luminous even. "Dimple Shah...I really like you, too." He pressed his lips lightly against hers as he kept talking. He felt her shiver again, and he smiled against her mouth. "And I would be honored if this turned into a real date."’ (p.217)
'“The point of dating you, Dimple Shah, is to get to know you. To spend time with you. To see the way you push your glasses up on your nose when you're especially moved by whatever you're saying. To smell your amazing shampoo. To feel your heart beating against mine. To see you smile. To kiss you." He leaned in and kissed her gently on the lips. When she opened her eyes, he was smiling. "So maybe all that other stuff that's important to me can take a back seat for now. And maybe I'm totally fine with that... If you are?"' (p.224)

As Digital Marketing Coordinator at Hachette Australia I love books! I also have a heart so I definitely meet the criteria to be on the Books With Heart team. I’m addicted to chocolate, #TorsoTuesday and you’ll find a mix of historical & contemporary romance (with a sexy Scot in a kilt) on my iPad. Jamie Fraser is my #MCM everyday.
