With not a hint of a leer or any other indication that he was enjoying this development, Eric shimmied out of the jeans. I tossed them onto the back porch to wash in the morning, trying not to gape at my guest, who was now clad in underwear that was definitely over-the-top, a bright red bikini style whose stretchy quality was definitely being tested. Okay, another big surprise. I'd seen Eric's underwear only once before -- which was once more than I ought to have -- and he'd been a silk boxers guy. Did men change styles like that?
"But you'll listen, right? If I need to talk? For the same reason?"
"Of course, my lover."
"Because you want to have sex with me."
"That, of course. But also because I find I really do ..." He paused, as if he were about to say something outrageous. "I find I have feelings for you."
"Oh," I said into his chest, sounding as astonished as Eric had. His chest was bare, as I suspected the rest of him was. I felt the light sprinkling of curly blond hair against my cheek.
"Eric," I said, after a long pause, "I almost hate to say this, but I have feelings for you,too." There was a lot I needed to tell Eric, and we should be in the car on our way to Shreveport already. But I was taking this moment to savor this little bit of happiness.
Before we got out of my old car, Eric leaned over to kiss me. We looked at each other, his eyes wide and blue, the white so white you could hardly look away, his golden hair neatly brushed. He'd tied it back with one of my elastic bands, a bright blue one. He was wearing a pair of jeans and a new flannel shirt.
"We could go back," he said, In the dome light of the car, his face looked hard as stone. "We could go back to your house. I can stay with you always. We can know each other's bodies in every way, night after night. I could love you." His nostrils flared, and he looked suddenly proud. "I could work. You would not be poor. I would help you."
"Sounds like a marriage," I said, trying to lighten the atmosphere. But my voice was too shaky.
"Yes," he said....Continua
Once again better than any previous books! I really liked this book, Harris really knows how to get you to warm to a character and how to get you to dislike one. Eric, who when we first met I hated, became the most loveable vampire in the series (except for Bubba maybe!) in this book and Bill, who we loved in the beginning, became irritating in club dead so she just got rid of him for the fourth book. Great idea. Now I'm looking forward to seeing him in the fifth installment, absence does make the heart grow fonder after all!
Sookie doesn't get beaten up in this book thank God, that was the only detail I found was getting a tad repetitive. Im aching for more!...Continua
So the plot has been better in the series: for instance, the bad guys are kinda blurry in this book( maybe that's because I read it before watching the TV show season) and you actually 'see' them only twice. On the other hand it is worth reading: Bill leaves for Peru at the beginning so we apparently see less of that hypocrite as we go on and that's fine by me. And, I have to confess, this is the first time I got actually sexually aroused by reading a book, I won't tell you wich part though it's easy to guess ;D...Continua
witches, werewolves, were-panthers, vampires!
the very best moment is when sookie shoots in the head of that fu**ing bitch namely Debbie Pelt
I hate Eric in the TV-Show but here, with the memory lost he's cute and sookie takes advantage of it!:P
maybe jason won't be as useless as he's been in all the four books since he's going to be a were-panther!
