Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #105

Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews. So many of the books I read have food or drinks in them, some I’d love to try, and others I’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes…  If you want to participate, you can grab my logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me in your own post.

The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. Please share the title of the book it happened in, as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something you discovered between the pages of a good read. Please link up beneath, and visit other bloggers who are participating in Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts as well.

This week, I’m sharing a Hungry Hearts quote from Under Pressure by Lori Foster. There was more than one quote to choose from, but this one really spoke to me… Both because Cat was a little naughty here, drawing Leese naked – before she had even seen him naked. And because Leese cooked a healthy meal for her. That’s really sweet, no?

My Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts quote:


“Go cook, and I’ll show you again when it starts to take form” Skeptical, he shook his head and retreated. “Dinner will be done and on the table in five, so don’t get too involved.” When it came to her fascination with him, she was already so involved she almost didn’t recognize herself. It always helped her to draw. Even doodles. This time, though, she composed a picture of Leese from the back, standing at the counter, preparing dinner. Ink wasn’t an ideal medium for this because she couldn’t really shade. With pencils or chalk, she’d have emphasized all those gorgeous muscles and innate strength. But she made do, using small lines and squiggles to add texture, leaving some spots lighter, layering others for depth, and by the time Leese turned to her, arms folded over his chest, plates on the table filled with fragrant chicken, broccoli and rice, she’d all but finished. Her imagination had delivered what sight couldn’t.

Thanks for stopping by today, I look forward to reading your Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts quote. Have a terrific Thursday and don’t forget to link up.

  1. Aww, that is sweet, Lex. 🙂 It does make me want to get to know these two – and “see” Cat’s drawing. And now I’m off to make breakfast which will not consist of chicken, broccoli, or rice but will still be healthy. 😉
    Happy Thursday, darling wife! Love you!! {{{BIG HUGS}}}
