Quote I Love: Catching Balls

For my quote of the week, I thought I’d share an occasional quote from works by other authors of gay romances.

To start us off, here’s a great line from As You Are by Ethan Day. It’s Julian’s reaction when asked to play a little touch football with his roommate (and the man he wants more than friendship with), Danny.

“Images from the two weeks of high school phys ed I’d suffered through flashed before my eyes. Luckily, thanks to Mom and the very cooperative family doctor, the torture of PE hadn’t lasted any longer. It always baffled me that as much as I loved to suck balls, I sure as fuck couldn’t seem to catch one.”

  1. LMAO…….that was certainly a great line. I remember reading that and literally having to walk away from my computer I was laughing so hard….tried to explain it to my husband, and he just looked at me blankly! Ethan’s books are always filled with great lines like that.

  2. Thanks for quoting As You Are, Sloan! What a great idea for a post, there are so many great lines I’ve read in books. How fun to list them all out like this. You’re totally brill, babe. : )

  3. @Kathy: Great idea. Ethan’s books would make the best relaxing weekend read.

    @Elaine: Ethan does have some of the best LOL lines. You should see how many I have highlighted in my e-reader.

    @Deanna: Glad I picked a good one for you. If you haven’t read it yet, you should check out the rest of As You Are.

    @Ethan: You’re most welcome. You always have the funniest lines. When I got the idea to quote other authors, my first thought was I have to start with an Ethan quote.
