"I had to rely on my good looks and goddamn charm."
"My name is Dex Foray and I'm a hypocrite. Proud of it,too."
"I was a gentleman over everything. An ass-appreciating gentleman. We are the finest kind of man. I should open my own ass-appreciating gentleman's club one day."
"She was mine. For the sake of appearances, she was my wife, but she was mine anyway. She didn't know it yet, but I did. It was wrong and it made no sense, but she belonged to me. No one else, not any-one else."
"I was head over heels in love with her. No, that didn't describe it. I was tear my fucking heart out and throw it at her, beg her to take it into hers. I was falling from the greatest heights with no safety net below. I was giving everything of my own life for hers, giving up every inch of my soul so she could wear it proudly. I was powerless, helpless and at her mercy.
And that was the one place I swore I'd never be again.
To love was to hurt."
"Listen, people, I don't care who you're playing with and how close to them you are but truth or dare is never a good idea.
"It's like living with a gangrene foot. You know you need to just whack it off and you'll be healthier for it. But damn if you don't feel some sort of emptiness when your decaying foot is gone. You look at the end of your leg expecting to see it there in all black and rotting but there's just nothing but air now." (when talking about his ex-girlfriend)
Although I am a bit sad now that the novella is over...
“I wanted nothing but her, now and forever.”
“I need you,” she whispered.
That was a new one. It stirred up something strange and foreign in my chest. No one ever needed Dex Foray.
“You need me?” I asked, my throat feeling thick.
“She was mine. For the sake of appearances, she was my wife, but she was mine anyway. She didn’t know it yet, but I did. It was wrong and it made no sense, but she belonged with me. No one else, not anyone else.”
““The Dex Foray special involves two lubed fingers, a lot of tongue and a cigarette for afterwards.”
"My God, she had one hell of an ass. Not too big that your dick would get lost but just big enough to get a good, meaty hold and squeeze and smack and come until the cows came home."
"My heart did a little flip. Christ, this was not a good idea. My heart of all hearts did not need to be flipping."
"I wonder if the owners would mind if I murdered someone in their front yard. He was so full of shit, he'd make fantastic fertilizer for their garden."
"You know how some people really get under your skin... and you like it? I fucking loved it. She pushed me, poked at me. She questioned me, kicked me, annoyed me. She was always there, digging, digging, digging and I loved every second of it."
"I’m a hypocrite because I hunt ghosts and I’ve pretended all this time that the ghosts haven’t been hunting me."
"I was head over heels in love with her. No, that didn’t describe it. I was tear my fucking heart out and throw it at her, beg her to take it into hers."
