Why did this particular asshole steal my heart????
- He is so vulnerable and needs to be loved
- He is loyal and has a huge heart
- He is a bad ass asshole oozing with sarcasm but you know what underneath is so worth it.
Some examples of why I love Garth:
"...Around here, we shoot coyotes, wolves, and assholes. And it's been a while since I've got to shoot an asshole. I'm going through withdrawals.""You're the one who has everything to lose. Let's face it, the only things I have left to lose are my boots and whatever scrap of dignity I have left. You have the world at your fingertips, and I have the weight of it on my shoulders. I know the man I am, and I know that I'm nowhere close to deserving you...But if you feel anything for me like I feel for you, I'm asking you to give us a chance. I'm begging you to give me a chance to prove I won't make the same mistake and do you wrong one night and abandon you the next morning. I can and will stay at your side for as long as you want me to stay there.""Because you deserve better than my best. You deserve the man I can and should be. Not the one everyone else knows.""Don't apologize for them. If you spend your whole life apologizing for other people's actions, you're going to wake up and realize you didn't get to do anything on your own to apologize for. Live your life. Don't wast it apologizing for others.""So that's what this guy taught me about love. It was nothing to do with deserving, and everything to do with who we want and choose to love....""I wasn't the guy who fell in love with you this past winter." I shook my head. Pain flashed across her face. "I was the boy who fell in love with you that day on the school bus when we were five. And I'm the man that always will."

Finders Keepers (Lost and Found #3)
by Nicole Williams (Goodreads Author)There’s tortured. And there’s Garth Black.
His life has been a constant carousel of tragedy and disappointment, including his love life. Of course, applying the term “love” to Garth’s conquests is a gross misuse of the word. Some people were made to give and accept love, and others weren’t. Garth Black redefines the “others” category. He’s made a vow that the day he meets a woman who could sucker him into falling in love will be the day he runs away.
Garth’s plan has one flaw. What happens when he’s already fallen hard for a girl before the warning signs and red flags go up? What happens when the love he’s avoided his entire life brings him to his knees? What happens when Garth Black lets the dirtiest four letter word he’s ever known into his dark, lonely life?
This cowboy’s about to find out he can control some things, and he can’t control others. Number one on the what he can’t control list?
