So in love with this book! There was a quote in L&R that sums up how I feel about it, lol:
It was fangirl code for every book geek: read, chat, squeal. Re-read, chat and squeal again, until it's over and the dreaded book funk sets in. Find the next best thing to fill the void, then repeat steps one through three as necessary.
Jimmy Buffet was singing about being 5 o'clock somewhere, and the Friday night regulars were just getting started.
Jackson's favorite karaoke song to sing was "Santeria" by Sublime. I had to hand it to the man, he nailed it every time, tipsy and all.
"Oh, we look forward to it, Celine Dion."
Turning on his heel for the pool table, he started belting out "My Heart Will Go On," and Jeff followed him, chiming in with the rest of the bar in booing the performance.
She started singing her own personal tribute to Adam, something about if he liked it, he shoulda' put a ring on it.
"Pity me. If there's one thing in this entire universe you and I actually have in common, it's an aversion to pity." "Well, that and we both like Sublime."
My eyelids grew heavy and I drifted into an easy sleepy, Sublime's "What I Got" buzzing faintly on the radio.
She squealed and skipped over to the stereo to blast the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the filled us two shots.
This isn't a song, but it was one of my favorite quotes from the book, probably because I'm from the South and I love the South:
"Possibly. Either way, this is the South. I don't know where you come from," he smirked, eyes dropping to my chest, then my waist, "because I've never seen you around her, but we have manners in the South." I crossed my arms over my chest and shifted my weight onto the hip. "Is that so?" "Yup. No swearing, no invading personal space, required please and thank yous, the whole shebang."
Here is Rachael's Offical Love and Relativity Playlist from her blog:
