"Mine had been the arms she'd run into, and like a fool I had opened them up for her. Now, all I had was a lot of damn drama and a slightly damaged heart. She hadn't claimed it. Not completely. But she had touched a place no one else had. She had needed me. No one had ever needed me…. As sick as it was, I had wanted to be her hero."
"My advice is to stay the fuck away from [Grant]. Guys that weak aren't the ones worth sticking around for. When a guy gets the attention of someone like you, he's supposed to understand his luck. Not toss it away. He doesn't get it. Find a man that understands your worth."
"I may have pushed her too far away," …
"Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe you never stood a chance to begin with. But is she worth trying?"
I nodded. "Yeah, she's worth begging."
"...all I could think was what if I loved someone that much and I lost them? How could I live? ... I decided I never wanted to be that vulnerable. I never wanted to love someone that much. I never wanted to face losing the one person that owns me."
"You'll find out you can trust me. I'm not a bad guy. Deep down you know that. I just made a very bad decision."
She needed me. No one had ever needed me. It had made me weak.Then there is Harlow Manning. Harlow is the first girl Grant has ever met that made him want ‘more’. And it scares him to death.
“You’re all I can think about, Harlow. Where I’m headed is new to me, but I damn well want to go there as long as that’s where you’ll be. You’re worried about getting hurt, but I don’t think you understand yet that you’re holding all the damn cards, sweet girl. All the damn cards.”
“Never been that fucking amazing. You’ve ruined me. Fucking ruined me. I can’t not have this.”
“Harlow Manning was breathtaking. She didn’t look like a rock star’s kid. She looked like an innocent, sweet country girl, with long, dark hair and eyes that made you forget your fucking name.”
“Seeing Grant always made me want to escape into one of my stories where guys who looked like him fell in love with girls like me. Not girls like Nan.”
“If you think she could be the one then it’s time you take a chance. If I lost all that I have tomorrow, I wouldn’t regret one single minute. Ever. They’re what makes my life worth it.” - Rush
“Three kinds of women in this world. The kind that suck you dry and leave you with nothing. The kind that only want a good time. And the kind that make life worth a damn. The last kind... that right woman’s the one who gives as much as she takes, and you can’t get enough. She’s the kind... if you lose her, you lose yourself.”
"I don't do possessive and crazy. Never have. But you.... I want to wrap you up and run off with you so no one can touch you again. Just me. Always me."
"If you don't trust me, I understand. Just let me near you," he said as his hand slipped under my shirt and rested on my stomach. "I'll prove it to you. Just let me. Give me a chance to prove it to you."
“My kitten has claws and apparently only you bring them out. Sleeping with the evil sister has put you on my baby girl’s shit list.”
“Three kinds of women in this world. The kind that sucks you dry and leaves you with nothing. The kind that only wants a good time. And the kind that makes life worth a damn. That last kind… she’s the one that gives as much as she takes and you can’t get enough. She’s the kind… if you lose her, you lose yourself.”
“You make me want things and feel a way I’m not ready for.”
“You smell like heaven and hell all wrapped up into one.”
“I’m not the kind of girl you plan forever with.”
“Warning bells were going off in my head loudly, but somehow I ignored that. Because my heart wanted to forgive him. I didn't want to push him away”
