"Whenever I care too much about something-" I sucked in a shaking breath-- "it gets ripped away."
"I know." His tone quieted. "Me too."
"So... how do we get past that?"
He trailed his fingers along my jaw, then cupped the side of my face with his hand. "We fight harder to keep what we want."
“All I’m saying is, don’t fight it. Don’t be afraid of us. If we are meant to happen…just let it.”
“He wanted to be bossy? He wanted to pound the point of being “just friends” home? I would be the best friend he’d ever had. Of course, while I demonstrated my stellar friendliness, no harm in highlighting my best qualities: flirtatiousness, adorableness—sexiness.”
“Kiki didn’t know it yet, but if she wanted to run from me? I would chase.”
“With the supercharged air—that wasn’t really the air—a spark ignited. White hot and glowing. Even if neither of us could see it, in spite of the fact that we didn’t want to admit it, we both felt it.
“The best gift we can give those we love is ourselves—whole and happy. We have to let them breathe, let them live and make mistakes. And we need to live too. We owe it to ourselves and to them.”
“Darren? Definitely delicious—delectable…decadent. Darren got all the best D words.”
“Something seemed to be happening between us, this thick unnamable thing growing more intimate with every heartbeat.”
Everything Darren was …. had become all I’d ever wanted.
Kiki didn’t know it yet, but if she wanted to run from me? I would chase.
I enjoyed Darren’s persistence and patience around Kiki, and even if they became friends first with a lot sexual tension (jogging has never been so interesting and motivating by the way), the chemistry was still there,increasing through the story. Kiki was falling hard for this dedicated men but scared to let someone in her life. The fire they made was just sizzling, intense and passionate!
