This scene happens when Matilda wakes up after she fell asleep with Jay the night before without anything but cuddling happening.

six of heartsJay groans. “Quit moving around, Matilda.”

His hand goes to my arm and grips it, seemingly to stop me from fidgeting. The heat from his hand makes me melt.

“I should go.”

He opens his eyes and frowns. “Why?”

“Because this is weird.”

“It’s not weird. We’re bonding. Lots of animals sleep together in order to bond. Don’t you ever watch the Discovery Channel?”

“We’re not animals.”

He gives me a devilish grin. “Speak for yourself.”




Why is this quote fantastic?

I literally laughed out loud when I read that last part. I don’t know if it was poor form for Jay to compare themselves to animals but I just found his explanation really funny. And sweet in the sense that you know that he just wants to be with Matilda.


Book Summary:

Step right up and meet Jay Fields: Illusionist. Mentalist. Trickster.

I think in triangles. You think in straight lines.

I show you a table and make you believe it’s a chair.

Smoke and mirrors, sleight of hand, misdirection. I trick and deceive.

But most of all, I put on a good show.

The world thinks I killed a man, but I didn’t. Bear with me. It’s all a part of the plan.

Revenge is what I want. I want it for me and I want it for her.
I want it for all six of us.

She doesn’t remember me, but she’s the reason for everything. She’ll be my prize at the end of all this – if I can hold onto my willpower, that is. Maybe I’ll slip up a little, have a taste, just a small one.

So go ahead and pick a card. Come inside and see the show. Look at my hands, look so closely that you can’t see what’s happening while you’re so focused on looking. I’ll be destroying your world from right here in the spotlight.

You’ll never see me coming until it’s too late.

I’ve only got one heart, and after I’ve pulled off my grand deception I’ll hand it right to her.

So, sit back, relax, and let my girl tell you our story. You’re in for one hell of a ride.

So, what’s YOUR favorite quote this week?
