Scene 1: "He looked at me like the first time when I moved here, as my presence annoyed him and he considers me the bane of anything good" (or something like that since I don't have the text and relying on my rusty ears) when man was just having a hard time controlling his urges (like I said, failure in reading nonverbal cues). In spite of that, the thought was actually debunked by Liam himself when he said he doesn't hate her staying in the house nor he hates her. But throughout the novella, Mara keeps on convincing herself saying how "I know you want to buy me out," then pretending to be shocked when Liam wants her 😒
Scene 2: When Mara canceled her date with her colleague and went back home to see Liam "getting cozy" with another woman (by cozy, I meant just sitting on the bar, smiling and scrolling the phone together), so she apologized for interrupting their moment. And said the most cringing thing like he could've brought Emma to his bed and she wouldn't mind and that he should've not stopped on her account. Well, guess what, he said, no, "That's my childhood best friend. She doesn't want to date me as much as I don't want to date her". However, the next time Liam was home alone from a supposed game night with his friend because his friend had a date, Mara literally said "Maybe you should've joined them. Was Emma busy?" — for fuck sake, a woman with tertiary education but with the worst comprehension I've ever read.
He takes my palm and drags it down his chest, past his abdomen, until his cock is hot in my hand. He is massive and almost automatically my fingers close around him. Liam grimaces, biting his lower lip.
Of it’s own free will, my hand starts moving up and down his
leg. Simple strokes that have him gasping and shutting his eyes.

“The weirdest part is how quickly everything changes.”
“I don’t have sex, Mara.”
“I don’t like sex.”
“I like you very much, Mara. I like talking to you. I like watching you do yoga. I like the way you always smell like sunscreen. I like how you manage to say pretty much whatever you want while still being unbelievably kind. I like being in this house with you and everything we do in here.”
“I don’t think it’s a surprise that I really really like the idea of fucking you.”
“But I don’t need to. I’m enjoying this.”
“Maybe too much. Since I almost lost it a number of times just by being near you. So, I’ll be more than fine if you just let me take care of you and—”
