Pebble in the Sky (Galactic Empire #3) Misbehaving (Sea Breeze #6)

Not if you want to learn anytime soon. Looks like the truck will be out of commission for a while – a long while.

One, that’s still shitty. But two, okay, that’s your staff and maybe that really does work for you in the office. But you’re not in the office. People are doing you a kindness and you don’t thank them.They’re not doing me a kindness. They’re doing their bloody job.

The Dream-Hunter (Dark-Hunter #10)

True. So say you got a shitty waitress or crappy flight attendant … you’re right. You shouldn’t thank someone when they’re doing a shitty job. But none of these people today have been doing a shitty job. It’s just good manners to thank them.It’s common courtesy. I know when I spend weeks, sometimes months designing a space or a house, that it feels amazing when the client thanks me. And it feels horrible when they don’t say anything. You know they like it because they’ve called a national magazine to have them photograph it or you see them plastering it all over their social media showing it off. But they never said thank you or good job.Being underappreciated is like being a ghost. They know once upon a time you were there, that you made a mark, but they already stopped caring before you even said good-bye. That’s shitty. And maybe being a flight attendant isn’t making someone’s home or office a place they love to spend time in, and it’s not making sure a tech company stays on the right path upward financially … but it’s making sure someone who is afraid of flying, or is tired and grieving, has a good flight at least. That they didn’t have to put up with obnoxious service. The same with Emily tonight. She got our food out to us and she did it with a smile. And we don’t know what kind of day Emily is having. If those assholes over there have been giving her a hard time.

Destiny of the Wolf (Heart of the Wolf #2)

So maybe a please or a thank you doesn’t seem much to you. But I’m pretty sure that every time I say thank you to Emily—including the thank you I’ll leave in my twenty percent tip—it helps her deal better with the assholes who were rude to her while she stands on her feet for a twelve-hour shift in the four-inch heels her boss insists she wear.I drew in a breath after my rant and sat back in my chair, waiting for his sarcastic reply. It didn’t come. Instead, he just stared at me, his expression inscrutable.

His answer was to look at the menu. Are you getting dessert?

Would it have been wrong of me to pour my champagne over him?Kill me then. My words startled the vampires and I was proud of how calm I sounded despite the storm of emotions inside me. All I ever wanted was to find the one who killed my father and here you are. Knowing that my friends will rip you to shreds – all of you – after I’m dead is enough for me. My voice grew stronger as I spoke, powered by my conviction that Nikolas and the werewolves would do exactly that.

A wave of panic rippled through the vampires surrounding us. My life was the only thing between them and certain death, and my willingness to die had just drastically decreased their chances of survival. Some of them looked poised to flee. They weren’t stupid. The Mohiri and the wolves wanted me and my friends would follow whoever had me.Stand firm! Eli growled. You would dare disobey the Master’s orders?

Definitely Dead (Sookie Stackhouse #6)

Apparently, the Master’s wrath was even more terrifying than dying because the vampires moved to take up defensive positions around me and Eli. With the cliff at our backs and the line of vampires between us and his enemy, Eli’s confidence lifted.Such a pretty speech, He rasped into my ear. But you see I’m not ready for either of us to die yet. His lips touched my earlobe and I suppressed a shudder. I have such plans for us, sweet Sara. Before this night is out, I will own you body and soul.

I’ll die before I let you have me.His voice hitched as he fed on my terror and his own anticipation. Fight me all you want, it only makes you more desirable.

I tried to block out the images his words conjured. You’re a monster.Eli chuckled. I’ve had many, many women and all of them begged me for it… well up until I made them scream of course. Your daddy screamed too at the end, and so will you.

Pain shot through my chest. I’ll kill you! I choked, struggling against him, making him laugh again.I grunted as something sharp dug into my hip. The knife. An absurd urge to laugh flooded me as I remembered how I had tried to refuse the weapon when Nikolas gave it to me and how many times it had helped to save my life since that day. Through it all, the knife always seemed to find its way back to me as if it was daring me to deny my heritage.
