That's what HE said Thursday: Prince Damian from Defy

That's what HE said Thursday is a weekly meme hosted at Chapter Break where you post a favorite line of a book boyfriend to his heroine. 

I'm so glad to finally be able to participate in this meme!I love highlighting lines and quotes from my favorite books said by those crush-worthy boys. Really, this is just one more way to fangirl. ;)

As this is my first post, I would like to start off with Prince Damian from Defy by Sara B. Larson. Loved the book and loved the boy!


"Thank you, for saving me-- and I don't just mean from that arrow." He smiled, a soft, wistful smile. "It's always been you, you know that, right? From the first moment I realized you were a girl-- it was always you." Prince Damian to Alexa 

For the love of swoons! In here, Prince Damian is finally showing more of his true self towards Alexa and his feelings for her. Lucky girl. Although it wasn't meant to be funny, I found it amusing how he said "I realized you were a girl", it must have been weird to fall for someone pretending to be a boy.

Have you read Defy? Do you have book quotes to share? Tell me in the comments below!


  1. LOL that sounds like a fun situation when he finds out she's not a he.

    1. He knew all along, although Alexa didn't know that ;)
