"I want to know everything about you. What you eat, except for tomatoes. God I hate those, what you dream about, what songs you listen to, what makes you laugh, what makes you happy, how you feel when I fuck you. I want you breathing for me. I want you begging me for more of this. I want you kissing me, just me. I want you, Tulip, you, you, you, you..."
"You can't go because I won't get over you. I won't ever find someone like you. I won't ever kiss a girl like you. I love you..."
“No matter the road you take, it doesn’t matter if it’s beautiful or ugly, hard or smooth, paved or pitted with ruts—it’s your road to take. What matters is how it ends.”This is my second Isla Madden Mills book and I loved it so much! If you’re looking for a NA romance that has a great enemies to lovers aspect with a strong heroine and a grumpy but soft hero, this is the book for you!

💌🌷 The Review🌷💌
"Sometimes the loneliest place on earth is in the midst of a crowd."
“Hades was lonely in hell. It’s a dark, isolated place. She symbolizes light and good. Opposites attract. Why can’t a devil want an angel? They were in love. Happy.”
“Keep moving, QB1.
Nothing to see here but a girl who knows how to change a tire.
Quite fascinating for you, I’m sure.”
And when she smiles, it makes you feel like the king of the world.
He grunts. “Really? No one wanted them to be together.
None of the gods approved. Who’d love the king of the underworld?” “The right person.”
“Mmmm. When I sat behind you in class, I used to touch it with my pencil, and you never even noticed. You smell like vanilla, do you know that?” I’m afraid to say anything, to stop him.
“Every day I’d get a little braver and barely touch my pencil to your shoulder, your arm. I was afraid to want you,
then hurt you—”
Kissing him is like I’ve spent a day in the sunshine,
and when night comes, the stars will only shine for me
“You’re shaking,” I say, recalling how he trembled outside Vandy.
“Am I the first girl you’ve kissed in a long time like really kissed?” He nods.
“But that isn’t why I’m scared. I’ve always wanted to kiss you, Tulip.”
He’s the kind of guy who doesn’t love often,
but once he does, it’s with everything he has.
"Wanted to see you before I went to sleep."
“Tulip, Tulip, so good, so good, you, you, you, you,” he mumbles and slides all the way out then back in, his shoulders quivering.
“Sweet, so fucking sweet.”
