Hmmm Why do I love Hawkins?
1) He is a Rock and Roll god
2) His feistiness and banter with Joie
3) His protectiveness with Joie
4) His love and devotion to Joie
5) His way of seeing what others do not see
Here are some examples of why Hawkins is my Book Boyfriend:
"Whenever you're done reading the chapter," he held uo his hands like take your time, "we'll start the concert." With a quick flip of my wrist I gave him the middle finger. He threw his head back and laughed.
I looked up at Hawkins, who locked eyes with mine as he sang, "Love in an elevator, lovin' it up, til I hit the ground."
I was leaning my head against Hawkins's shoulder and a gorgeous butter yellow lit up the sky. Hawkins smiled down at me and wrapped his arm around me. The brilliant yellow lit up his face. His blue eyes tinkled as he studied the sky. It left me feeling warm and safe so I closed my eyes again.
"Joie," he said with his lips hovering over mine. "What?" I felt my heart flutter. "Shut up," he muttered and then he kissed me.
Gently, I pulled away from Hawkins. I didn't want him to feel that he needed to baby me, but he pulled me into him with a stiff tug, wrapping his arm around me even tighter than before. "Can't you just let me?" he whispered
"..I was told that not only was Monroe killed, but." he turned away from me, "that you were dead too." Feeling my mouth drop, I stared up at him. "And for a second, before they could clear it up," he confessed while fiddling with the silken edge of the blanket, "I was devastated."
He slid around the half circular table and wrapped an arm around me so I could bury my head into his chest, "But that's why I love you," he whispered. "You don't do anything like how you're supposed to."
"Joie, I want you in my future. I don't want to hide our love away anymore like it's something to be ashamed of,"
All of the examples are from Foolish Games by Leah Spiegal
While I was getting the quotes and phrases I re-read this book and I loved it the second time just as much as the first time. It is a great book with drama, comedy, love and suspense. I hope you love Hawkins as much as I do.
