Kindle Notes & Highlights
“Daemon.” I sighed, trying to disregard the girl in me that screamed, HE NOTICED ME! “I’m being serious.”
when he stared at me like I was the last piece of chocolate in the whole world.
“Don’t hit, Kitten. It’s not nice.”
“The American Library Association midwinter event,” he said, grinning proudly. “Saw you obsessing over it on your blog before you got sick. I’m pretty sure you said you’d give up your firstborn child to go.”
“Stop distracting me, Kitten. Back to my bet—by New Year’s Day, you’ll have admitted that you’re madly, deeply, irrevocably, and irresistibly in love with me.”
“I’ll take care of it.”
There was a six-foot-three alien behind me. Not talking to me, just breathing softly against the back of my neck.
“What was that?” he whispered, eyes narrowed. There was no mistaking the amusement in the tilt to his lips, though. “Very bad kitty…”
That kind of love should’ve been able to beat sickness. That kind of love should’ve conquered anything.
“I’m not going to let some punk-ass human talk about you like that, especially him or his friends.”
“That is pretty lame. Oh, listen!” His glittering eyes slid in the direction of the living room. “It’s ‘Eye of the Tiger.’ Do you want to sing along to that? Maybe jog up the stairs and pump your fists in the air?”
Daemon laughed. “Did you know I had a purple Mohawk?”
“Yeah, sometimes, I think I did.”
“Do you know what I’ve been thinking about all day?” With him, it was anyone’s guess. “No.” His lips brushed the skin of my cheek. “Finding out if you look as good in striped socks as you do in reindeer ones.”
“Do you have any idea what you do to me?” he asked gruffly.
I didn’t want another person to care about, to worry about losing.”
“I just wanted to see you.”
“We should do something. Together. Outside of your house and not just walking around.” He stared straight ahead. “We should go out to dinner or maybe a movie.”
I’d been so caught up nursing my hurt over the way he’d acted when we first met that I’d been blind to my growing feelings, to what I wanted, and to how he felt. And now what? Daemon, who never backed down from anything, had walked away before allowing me to explain anything.
yes, because you've been the one who was annoying... jeez Katy, took you long enough to OPEN your eyes.
“Yes, Bart, you are always interrupting,” Daemon responded.
Words were the most powerful tool. Simple and so often underestimated. They could heal. They could destroy.
The man was an alien, but he was also in control of my bio grade.
“Oh, yes, and you know what else I think is sexy?” He leaned forward so his entire face filled the picture and nodded his head toward me. “Bloggers like this. Hot.”
And my favorite was when he held the book in front of my face and said, “This reaper dude sounds like my kind of guy. He gets to kill people for a living.”
“You bookish people love teasers, don’t you?”
“If there is anything, there is us.”
“Those three words?” “Always those three words.”
