Who's Afraid Too? by Maria Lewis
“Heath turned to me, arms wide as if he was ready to hug someone. ‘We’re assembling a team.’

“Soy cappuccino,’ I growled, while doing as instructed. ‘I should have known you were evil.”
Maria Lewis, Who's Afraid Too?

“You should ask yourself, if a relationship is all about sharing secrets and bodily fluids, why are you receiving more of one than the other?”
Maria Lewis, Who's Afraid Too?

“We sat there in a comfortable silence for a while and I picked up one of the books lying on the window seat.

“Keep him away from me,’ she said through gritted teeth. ‘I’m afraid I’ll rip him apart and that’s something I’d rather do when I’m human.”

“I’ve been thinking about you lately.’
'Puhlease. You think about me as much as you do money in a birthday card.”
