Now Hadley presses her forehead against the window of the taxi and once again finds herself smiling at the thought of him. He's like a song she can't get out of her head. Hard as she tries, the melody of their meeting runs through her mind on an endless loop, each time as surprisingly sweet as the last, like a lullaby, like a hymn, and she doesn't think she could ever get tired of hearing it.
~ The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith, pg. 110
"I want your taste in my mouth. I want your heat in my veins." One of his hands came up to cradle my jaw as he gently kissed my top lip, then my bottom, lingering there the longest. I whimpered into his mouth and every part of him shook with what I could only guess was restraint. He pressed his forehead to mine and closed his eyes. "I want it to erase everything that's inside of me right now. Say it's okay, Anaya. Tell me you want me, too."
~ Blurred (Kissed by Death #2) by Tara Fuller, pg. 115 (ARC)
I know at that moment what he's given me and it's not a chair. It's an invitation, a welcome, the knowledge that I am accepted here. He hasn't given me a place to sit. He's given me a place to belong.
~ The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay, pg. 166
