"It's going to take a lot more than a Thanksgiving dinner and a Christmas tree to get laid."
"Modesty is for saints and losers. I'm neither."
By New Year's Day,you'll have admitted that you're madly,deeply,irrevocably,and irresistibly in love with me.
I could always give you a teaser.You bookish people love teasers, don't you?
I would've kept you safe.
Words were the most powerful tool.Simple and so often underestimated.They could heal.They could destroy.
If there is anything, there is us.
You and me. No one else.
"Jesus." Blake rubbed his throat. "You have anger management problem. It's like a disease."
"There's a cure and it's called kicking your ass."
Time stopped for us. The world and everything I'd been part of only existed outside the closed bedroom door, but in here, it was only us. And for the first time, there was nothing between us. We were open, vulnerable to each other. Pieces of our clothing disappeared. His shirt. Mine. A button came undone on his jeans... and on mine, too.
“Caving in so easily?”
“Caving in?...I just want you out of my face.”
“Keep telling yourself that, Kitten.”
“Keep using your ego steroids.”
In a blink of an eye, he was in front of me, blocking my exit.
Placing his hands on either side of my hips, he bent forward…his lips brushed my chin. A strangled gasp escaped the back of my throat, and I swayed toward him.
A heartbeat later, Daemon pulled back, chuckling smugly. “Yeah…not my ego, Kitten.”
For several moments, neither of us spoke. We didn’t need to. I just wanted to hold him—for him to hold me. Maybe it was the connection wrapping us together. Maybe it was something infinitely deeper. At that moment, I didn’t care.
“You mean something to me—something I can’t really even put into words because everything seems too lame in comparison. I’ve always wanted you, even when I hated you. I want you even though you drive me freaking insane.”
“How can you still want me?”
“Oh, I still want to strangle you. But I’m insane. You’re crazy. Maybe that’s why. Maybe we’re meant to be together.”
“That makes no sense.”
