That's What HE Said #58 ~ Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts #39

That's What He Said is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely ladies @Chapter Break. Here's the deal: every Thursday, post a line from your book boyfriend to his heroine. Keep in mind, these are direct quotes from dialog in the books. The quote doesn't have to be romantic - just something our hunky hero said to his lucky lady. Be sure to link up over at Chapter Break as well.

My pick this week for That's What He Said is from:

All Lined Up by Cora Carmack


"You asked me once what fixes me the way dance fixes you. I'm still not sure I've found that thing that pulls me together, but I've found who pulls me together. You're the only thing that makes me feel better when I'm tired or frustrated. You're the only thing that quiets all my worries and doubts and fears. You're it for me. So run if you'd like, but I'll follow. You can try to hold me at arm's length, but I'll never stop trying to pull you close. Be scared if you must, but you're not going to lose me..."


Okay, I love this scene for a few reasons...first, Tucker's is based on a barbecue restaurant that I used to eat at when traveling between Lubbock and my grandparents. Yummy food and good memories. Second, even though it doesn't list much food here, IT'S BARBECUE! (I *am* Texan) And last, Dallas' dad used food as a kind of ice breaker here - he wanted to really talk to Dallas and this was his way of easing into the conversation. :D

"You hungry?" he asks. "I brought Tucker's home."
When he says he brought Tucker's...he means he brought all of Tucker's I swear there's enough food to feed the Weasley family for only the two of us.
"I wasn't sure what you wanted, so I just got a few of your favorites. Figure we can warm up whatever we don't eat later."
"Thanks, Dad."
He nods, and starts piling various barbecued and fried meats onto his plate. I'm not all that hungry, but I do the same because I know he's trying.
