Blog Tour Quotes and Giveaway: Dirty Little Secret by Jennifer Echols

Welcome to the Dirty Little Secret blog tour! Today, I have a review, my favorite quotes, and a giveaway to share with you!

You can read my review HERE.

Here are my favorite quotes from Dirty Little Secret!

"'Do you need me to help you get in the mood?' I asked hopefully. I really wanted him to get me in the mood. I wanted my heart pounding for a different reason.

He didn't even bother to take off my glasses this time. He put both arms around me and pressed his mouth on mine, sweeping his tongue inside." (110-111)


"'I was not in love with her,' he said so loudly that several people at the very back of the crowd around Sam looked up at us curiously.

'I see,' I said smoothly. 'You only had the worst kind of crush on her then. You felt guilty that you had a thing for your brest friend's girlfriend. Then they broke up, and you and she became friends, and the crush got worse, and fell in love with her more gradually, later.'" (148)


"I fished my keys from my purse and climbed the wooden steps. 'Wave to the security camera,' I told Sam behind me. I flashed a hand toward the lens hidden in one upper corner of the porch. 'I want them to know I know they know I'm here. God forbid they catch me bringing a boy over here to adjust my wardrobe.'

'That is ridiculous,' Sam said, following me through the kitchen. 'I am grandpa-approved.'" (165)


"'Nothing's wrong,' I said, self-consciously removing my hand again.

'Then why are you going?' he demanded.

'It's my annual exam.'

'Then why can't I go?'

I'd just had this entire mortifying conversation with my grandad at breakfast. He hadn't wanted to go, but he'd demanded to know exactly where I was going and why. Exasperated, I enunciated every syllable so Sam would be embarrassed into backing off. 'It's with the gy-ne-co-lo-gist.'" (183)


"'Are you okay?' I asked sarcastically in the parking lot. 'You act like you're the one who got examined.'

He chuckled easily. 'I felt uncomfortable. Everybody in there assumed I'd gotten you pregnant. The guys were looking at me sympathetically, giving me the bro nod. The women were accusatory.'" (188)
