“Adam: "Perhaps you should get a real job and become a useful member of society."
Gordon: "Perhaps you should shove a pipe up your ass and die of lead poisoning.”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight


“Why do I let you do this to me?" Adam panted against his face, damp and warm, and heartbeat racing in his chest. "How do you ruin me like this?”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight


“What freaking year were you born in? You can’t be much younger than me. They had all of those shows about Amazon chicks and Greek gods, gladiators. . .”
“You watched shows about Amazons and Greek gods.” It was more of a flat statement than a question.
“Screw you. Them bitches were fierce.”
“You’re a bizarre person.”
“Says the guy in the bodysuit.”
Mr. Greek’s mouth sunk at the sides. “It’s protective armor.”
“Like I fucking said.”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight


“Considering some of the things I’ve done, touching another man’s dick is not exactly going to send me into a moral meltdown.”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight


“Adam: "I guess I struck a nerve."
Gordon: "Suck my cock and choke on it.”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight


“He was making it obvious that something was wrong—that Adam's presence was throwing him off.
"Uh, Marquis. We were going to food." Because that was a verb. "I mean, get food."
"He's gone."
"Yes."
Monosyllables. Monosyllables were good.”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight


“I'm just doing what I have to do. I don't have a choice."
"Yeah, good luck going to bed with a guilt-free conscience with that sorry-ass excuse."
The sour expression evaporated from Mr. Greek's face. His gaze switched back to the computer. "Keep talking and I'll gag you."
"Blow me.”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight


“Okay, dumbass. Perspective time," Gordon muttered as he ripped the greasy bag open. He would force himself to eat. He was not going to become an obsessed basketcase. He wasn't.

"First of all," he said, yanking the utensil drawer open." He is capable of murdering a huge juicer in the middle of the street and then disappearing with the body within seconds."

He removed one of the cartons and shoved his fork into the mound of noodles. "Two, he is probably a sociopath. Three, he thinks I'm a complete ballsack of a moron.”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight


“He'd never been a kidnapping or hostage victim before, so he was a little fuzzy on the etiquette.”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight


“Why couldn't anyone ever take him at face value? He'd come up with a perfectly believable lie and she was still questioning him.”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight


“Gordon didn't respond, not wanting to make promises, not wanting to open himself so entirely when there were still so many things that could be unsaid and hidden. But even as he decided to stay noncommittal, he found himself listing forward. Listing forward and kissing Adam again, because who the fuck was Gordon kidding?

He needed more, too.”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight


“Blahblah new porn series, blahblah hot men, blahblah new hot boytoy from France, blahblah hair products imported from France with the boytoy, blahblah super gay lifestyle.”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight


“What's the haps, Alli? Writing your memoirs?"
"People who write memoirs should die.”
― Santino Hassell, quote from After Midnight

About BookQuoters

BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.

We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.

Founded in 2018, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
