Cowboy Casanova (Rough Riders #12) Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass #6)

So it’s looking like there’s a leak. And as much as I found that important, I couldn’t give Evan my full attention; my gaze kept straying to Ava, and I was sure it was territorial.

He shook his head, his chin rubbing across the top of my hair. Close your eyes. Ask me another question. His hands drifted along my back until they rested at the center of my waist, supporting what little weight I had in the water.With his hands on me, it was easier to close my eyes and try to forget I was in a giant tub of death. Your tattoos. How many?

Dancing at Midnight (The Splendid Trilogy #2)

He sucked in his breath. Five individual pieces.Do they all mean something? I mean, they’re beautiful on you, I’m just wondering if they’re art or…something more? I relaxed, focusing on his hands and keeping my own facing up. It was strangely comfortable to be so intimate with someone I barely knew.It was stranger feeling as if I already knew him so intimately.

Sabriel (Abhorsen #1)

They all symbolize something to me.The water swished around my head as he lowered us a little more, but the usual panic didn’t set in. Which one is your favorite?

Isn’t it my turn? I heard his smile.

What’s your favorite part of being in a relationship?I grabbed his hand and placed my ace of hearts in it. Because I’m no good for you. Because I’m not a good person. I’m selfish, and spoiled, and entitled, and make horrible decisions that hurt people.

You want every bad and ugly thing? Do you want to know why I got kicked out of college, Grayson?Yes, but you need to know that it doesn’t matter. Not to me. It won’t change how I feel about you.

The Becoming (Anna Strong Chronicles #1)

Well, it matters to me. I got kicked out over a guy. My entire collegiate career, gone. Poof. But he was nice, and showed interest in me when I was all alone. Ember had left for Vanderbilt. My mom had moved to Kentucky, and I was on my own, really on my own for the first time, and it wasn’t…freeing like I thought it would be. I was so lonely. So I took summer classes to fill the time, and I met Harrison. He was everything I thought I was supposed to want. Stable, educated…worldly, I guess. He made me feel like the luckiest girl when I was with him. Fall came, and… I swallowed. What was he going to think of me when he found out? Would he label me a whore? Say I deserved the emails that popped into my inbox?Grayson squeezed my fingers gently, and the card pressed into my skin. You don’t have to, if it’s too much. I’m not doing this to hurt you, or to find an excuse to walk away, and if you’re not ready, we can do this slowly.

Of course he was giving me an out. Being supportive. Pulling me off bars and out of strip clubs. He was everything I needed, and nothing I deserved. Stop being so nice!His brows drew closer together, hurt streaking through his eyes. What—

He was my professor, Grayson. I slept with my professor, and it wasn’t a one-time thing. We were together for months. Four months, thirteen days, if I had been counting. Which I had.Okay. His thumb stroked over mine, and I focused on that small movement to get me through the rest.

It wasn’t just…sex. I loved him, or what I thought was him. I didn’t ask questions when he was busy. I never wondered why he was so against spending the night at my house. I mean, come on. He was a twenty-eight-year-old ethics professor, and I was a twenty-one-year-old student. Of course he couldn’t spend the night with me. He was risking his job by being with me. I couldn’t ask more of him when he’d already given me so much. A sour laugh slipped free. You have to know where this is going, right? I’m the only naive one who didn’t see it coming.His eyes weren’t judgmental once I found the courage to meet them. But of course they weren’t. The closer I got to Grayson, the more I understood that he wasn’t aloof because he felt superior. He was aloof because it kept him alive.
