RRRC 2017 April Word Hunt

Romance Readers Reading Challenges discussion on goodreads

Monthly Word Hunt 
1 - 30 April 2017

This challenge is to see if you can find all the words listed below within your reading for the month. You do not need to preselect a level.

The maximum number of words for each book is THREE. There is no page limit.

0-3 words : better luck next time
3-5 words : warming up
6-8 words : getting hotter
9-10 words : CHAMPION hunter!

agent Fool Me Once Harlan Coben 4/5/17 p 68 You were clearly hit with pepper spray or some agent in that family.
body Rock Candy Kisses Addison Moore 4/1/17 p 38 Your body is gorgeous.
charm Velvet Kisses Addison Moore 4/2/17 p 134 “I’m sure you’ll use your youth and charm to seduce them into getting your way.
crunch A Wanted Man Lee Child 4/7/17 p 392 ... a wheezing click and a whirring crunch ...
defect A Mother's Conviction Karen Lenfestey 4/9/17 Loc 790 ... insurance since he was born with that heart defect.
dinosaur Velvet Kisses Addison Moore 4/2/17 p 39 ... of higher education back in the dinosaur days.
mortal Velvet Kisses Addison Moore 4/2/17 p 178 “I’m glad you find the mortal peril the two of us were in so hilarious—
scar Wild Kisses Addison Moore 4/4/17 p 162 That scar
stun Fool Me Once Harlan Coben 4/5/17 p 185 ... but something that serious would stun him and probably close him down.
unite The Death Cure James Dashner 4/11/17 p 146 At this time citizens must unite to prevent further spread of this pandemic.

For our over-achievers who just need some extra words because the above weren't enough...

Unlike with the 10 words above - you must find the EXACT word to claim these bonus words, and I try to make them hard.

flaming Ill Wind Rachel Caine 4/3/17 p 329 ... saw David the way he really was-a flaming angel, gilded and beautiful, ...
guts Wild Kisses Addison Moore 4/4/17 p 4 ... but that’s one thing I don’t have the guts to say out loud.
skyline A Drink Before the War Dennis Lehane 4/12/17 p 280 I looked back, saw the skyline glittering behind us ... 

To prove that you have found the word, please quote the page, percentage or LOC (Kindle) and include the sentence in which it appears.

Audiobooks are allowed so long as you can quote the page/%/LOC and the sentence. (Eg Using whispersync or finding that sentence in some other way.)

You must find the actual word or the word's root word must be at the core with the meaning essentially remaining the same ~ just turned into a noun, adjective, adverb etc. No prefixes or hyphenated extensions. An extension is allowed where it is often the accepted spelling eg goodbye or good-bye.

Where a word has more than one meaning, either meaning may be used. Eg coast (beachfront) or coast (moving without effort) etc

Please post all entries, updates, final posts and questions in this thread.
