“I don’t know if anyone’s ever told you this”, he begins. He doesn’t blush, and his eyes don’t dart away. Instead I find myself staring into a pair of oceans – one perfect, the other blemished by that tiny ripple. “You’re very attractive.”

I’ve been complimented on my appearance before. But never in his tone of voice. Of all the things he’s said, I don’t know why this catches me off guard. But it startles me so much that without thinking I blurt out, “I could say the same about you.” I pause. “In case you didn’t know.”

A slow grin spreads across his face. “Oh, trust me. I know.”

“Forever and ever, kid, until you’re sick and tired of seeing me.”

So I finally got on the bandwagon and read Legend and I’m happy to report I really really enjoyed it! I love that Day can be such a Casanova sometimes (even though he’s only 15 lol). And arg, that 2nd teaser. It’s the kind that’ll make you cry ugly tears (because you know something terrible is going to happen as soon as that’s said – it’s a rule for fantasy and dystopian or something).

“You look absolutely breathtaking dear,” Lucy said with a small encouraging smile. “Captain Swift is certain to be amazed at your beauty.”

“I was quite serious when I said I may cast up my accounts,” Cass answered.

“Don’t do that, dear,” Lucy replied quickly.(5% eARC Kindle)

Muahaha. So this book is basically The Importance of Being Earnest, but Regency-style. I love The Importance of Being Earnest, so I couldn’t resist. There’s definitely a lot of escapades in this book!
