“You’re not perfect, Evie, rationally I know that.” He let out a long sigh. “But you’re perfect to me.”
Not that I minded his rugged appearance. He was altogether the most masculine specimen I had ever come across. Even his voice was deep and rumbling. I felt that voice in places I had no business feeling it.
"Evie, I don't make a habit of asking tourists out but I can't help myself. You're brave, you love animals. You're stunning. I'm a mere mortal." His chuckle had a slightly disbelieving tone to it, like he couldn't understand himself in that moment. "So please have a drink with me tonight?""
Unfortunately, we live in a society where we tell our kids to be confident and successful and then as soon as they are, we tell them to shut out about it and be humble. Especially women. Guys can get away with cockiness until the end of time, but if a woman is cocky, she is arrogant and superior.
Even worse, women are just as likely as men to condemn a confident woman for not being most enough. The only way we can change that attitude is to change it among ourselves. If you're successful at something, celebrate that success. If you know you're smart, then demand that other people treat you are someone of intelligence.

“Wait.” Roane moved toward me, his expression eager. “Evie, I don’t make a habit of asking tourists out but I can’t help myself. You’re brave, you love animals. You’re stunning. I’m a mere mortal.” His chuckle had a slightly disbelieving tone to it, like he couldn’t understand himself in that moment. “So please have a drink with me tonight.”
“You’re my home.”
