Favorite Lines / Scenes:

from Captivate
“You won‘t kiss me,” I say, pounding on his chest for emphasis. “You promise. Promise you won‘t kiss me.”
His mouth goes up to that same smile, half mischief, no teeth, crinkling his face into something almost happy, something not so sad. “I cannot promise that, but I will promise that I will not kiss you unless you want me to.”

from Entice

“…I want you to want me because you want me, not because of grief, not because he is not here. I want you to love me for me. I want you to kiss me first and not because you need me to help you, but because you need to kiss me.”

My name is JoAnne and I am a sucker for fairy tales. When I was a kid, I dreamed of becoming a princess, finding my handsome prince and living happily ever after. But my parents talked me into taking up law instead. I get a strange high from reading young adult and new adult novels. I know people secretly judge me for reading books not for my age. But frankly, I don’t care. I know what makes me happy – coming-of-age stories, spine-tingling romances, fictional boyfriends, and fairy tale endings.
