“Better keep a wrinkle in it, boyo. You touch my baby sister and you die.”
Loc. 33 (eARC), Hell on Wheels by Julie Ann Walker
“Patti! We’re out of Alpha Whiskey in the head,” and Patti disappeared down the hall, presumably to replace the bathroom's Alpha Whiskey – otherwise known as asswipe or the much-less-colorful toilet paper in the civilian world.
Loc. 390 (eARC), Hell on Wheels by Julie Ann Walker
Yeah, I cheated. I gave you two quotes from the same book. Both are good so I had to share.
He’s the bad boy she’s always wanted...
Nate “Ghost” Weller has loved Ali Morgan nearly half his life. But he’s done something so heinous he’s convinced she’ll never forgive him if she discovers the truth, so he keeps his feelings and his secrets to himself. Then she blows into town with a mother lode of bad guys on her tail and Nate can’t deny she’s in serious trouble. Unfortunately, he’s the only one who can help her.
She’s the good girl he’s kept at arm’s length...
Ali knows Nate as the most solemn, aloof man on the planet. Sadly, he’s also the sexiest. For years she’s avoided him, unable to stomach his dark scowls and brooding silences… especially when she secretly yearns for his touch. Now she must rely on him to save her from the malevolent shadows ghosting her every move. When the bullets explode, so does their passion. But can love really conquer all? Or are some things just too terrible to forgive?
