Favorite Quotes

Standing up, I clenched my teeth, looking down at that beautiful body.  That beautiful girl that hated me, and I hated her – but goddamnit – I loved how we hated, because it was raw and real.  It didn’t make any sense, but yeah – it was real.
You have to have something to love.  Something to fight for to make living a goal instead of a job.
Sometimes I wondered if the angels talked to get me to behave or to entice the devil to come out to play.
“Do you love me?”  I nodded like a kid that wanted ice cream. “Yes.”  “Like love me so much that you wouldn’t even be able to kill me if I turned into a zombie?” he pressed with mischief on his face.

The Book Details
Publisher Synopsis

She’s back.

For the two years she’s been away at boarding school, there was no word from her. Back when we lived in the same house, she used to cut me down during the day and then leave her door open for me at night.

I was stupid then, but now I’m ready to beat her at her own game…

I’m back.

Two years and I can tell he still wants me, even if he acts like he’s better than me.

But I won’t be scared away. Or pushed down. I’ll call his bluff and fight back. That’s what he wants, right? As long as I keep my guard up, he’ll never know how much he affects me…

About The Author
Adrian Perkins

My romance novel obsession started when I was a kid reading my Mom’s Jackie Collins novels. I’m a romance junkie and I like my men to be alpha males and my ladies to be quirky and strong. I need the HEA but it’s OK if it takes 2 or 3 or 10 books to get there. Lee Nightingale is my forever BBF.

I’m a Part-time Realtor and full-time Mommy with a husband, 2 kids and 3 cats. I love to travel almost as much as I love to read.
