“I’m afraid you’re going to break me, Quinn.”
“Don’t let me.” The challenge in his eyes intensified, heating up and pouring strength into me. “Don’t you let me fucking do that, Emilie. Don’t let anyone break you. You’re stronger than that.”
Lyla Payne, Broken at Love

“It had to be her heart, too, or I lose. Sex and feelings. Shame and regret. That was the game.”
Lyla Payne, Broken at Love

“It hurt a little that she looked happy to see me, when I only came to break her.”
