“Needs are always necessary. Wants have a way of surprising you.”
“Sometimes nice guys just have to be bad if they want something this hard.”
“If he wants to fight dirty, he’s going to lose. I’m the queen of filth. And I’ve been yielding my words as weapons for years.”
“Frank vouched for this doctor, but upon meeting him, I’m not so sure. He looks like Doogie Howser and Mario Lopez had a love child and that love child was entering his junior year in high school.”
“Oxford, I’m British. We don’t hug. We do posh air kisses on the cheeks and even that is only because we’re trying to be pompous.”
“I don’t want to miss another second with you. I want to make up for lost time. I want to make up for missed chances. I want what I’ve always known we could be.”
“Reyna Miracle Miller, we had a rocky start, an even rockier middle, but I want to have an incredible finish.”

I know I listed too many favorite quotes, and that is still after I pared them down… I love Amy Daws – but she nearly killed me while reading Not The One. Seriously – I am no fan of angst so I was in abject misery! Had I not trusted or previously worshipped at the altar of Ms. Daws’ mad skills, I would probably have pulled a runner and stopped reading. Thankfully, I stuck with it as the comic relief and ridiculousness of Frank more than makes up for the moroseness, heinous behavior, and emotional instability of Reyna. Reyna has to be one of the most annoying and least likable characters out there. She is caustic on a good day, and generally snide, cruel, and deliberately hurtful to those who only want to help her. She seems to have been on a life-long path of self-loathing, insecurity, hostility, and destruction. While she is fully aware that she is emotionally disturbed – she doesn’t do anything about it until it is almost too late and she has alienated everyone in the most painful manner possible.
Then there is Frank – I unequivocally adore Frank. He is always the brightest spot in all the London Lovers books. He knows and is exactly what others need and when they need it. His wardrobe choices and flamboyant character provide the much needed and most welcomed hits of levity that breeze through like a breath of fresh air. Please Ms. Daws, for your next book, let it be all about Frank!
That’s not an answer.
LOL…Let me be “frank” when I tell you…it is a distinct possibility. 😉
