"You kiss better than I imagined." ~ Janie
"But I'm known for sleeping in school. It's my shtick." ~ Cabe
"Cabe is not a drug dealer, pusher, liaison, user, and/or other in real life. He just plays one on TV." ~ Captain
Why he's my book boyfriend:
Cabe is mysterious and sweet, and he's got a little bit of a bad boy in him. He is trustworthy - he keeps Janie's secret. But more than that, Janie's secret leaves her very vulnerable, and Cabe protects her while she is "under". He leaves snickers bars... and power bars... for her in places she'll find them even when they aren't talking...because he knows she needs them. *sigh* Cabe finds a way into her dreams, he writes sweet notes to her. He's not afraid to fight for her and their love when she tries to turn away.
