Top 10 Best Quotes

“I’m the guy who knows how you can hurt so much that your insides feel like they’re cut and bleeding.”

“With you and me, I don't know what anything means. We're pushing each other away and yet I don't seem to be able to let you go.”

“I want him and even if it's frightening, even if I may not be completely ready for a relationship, I want him. Now... And tomorrow, and all the following days.”

“Wow, Skye.” He kneels in front of me, ready to put one of his huge, strong hands on my knees. I recoil suddenly before I catch myself. Someone normal doesn’t react like that at the mere possibility of an innocent touch. “Okay, I’m going to sit on your friend’s bed.” He does just that, his eyes locked with mine. I have the sense I’m trapped and I don’t like it. I don’t want to ever feel like that again. “You should go,” I say, my voice wavering and barely above a whisper. He takes a sip of his coffee absentmindedly, his eyes never leaving my face. I don’t drink mine. I don’t even feel the mug between my hands. I feel nothing besides the hammering of my heart in my chest. I’m having difficulty breathing, and my forehead and neck are sweaty under my hair. “Can I say something before I go?” he asks me in a voice calmer than he must feel if I take into account his clenched fist and the shaking of his hand holding the mug of coffee. I just nod, not sure I’m able to mutter a word through the lump in my throat. “I’m not the enemy. I’m not the kind of guy who would try to hurt you more when I know you’re already hurting, but I’m someone willing to hear you and understand you. I want to be able to help.”

“I love you, Skye. You’re in my heart, in my head, under my skin. You’re my present and my future.”

“His grip on my shoulder tightens. His other hand behind my head caresses me softly and I sigh. "Touch me, Skye." His voice is rough, almost sounding like a groan.”

“Maybe I shouldn't trust him after all, just like he doesn't seem to trust me fully. Shit, is it always so hard to get close to someone?”

“Maybe Duke was just the kind of person you don’t keep in your life, but the kind of person that changes your life forever.”

“It's fine, but don't ask me to strip again or I'm going to wonder what your intentions really are.”

“If you were ready to sleep with me we wouldn't be in this bar, but in my room not wasting any more time.”
