Why oh why is Ty my Book BF this week?
1) He is sexy as hell and a hockey player who would not want that
2) He tries not to but wears his heart on his sleeve
3) He is persistent when he wants something and doesn't give up
Some of the reasons why I love Ty
"Did you forget something?" "Yeah." He hauled her into his arms before she could take her next breath, and his mouth came down on hers
"Yes. And you also don't pick up women in my bar." "Maybe because I'm waiting for you."
"I think about your mouth." He traced her bottom lip with his thumb. "I like what comes out of it when you talk to me. It's sassy and smart. And I sure as hell liked kissing it. It's soft and wet and you yield under me like you want what I've got." Her chest rose and fell. "I like the way you talk. Confident, but you're a bit of a smart-ass. I like that about you, too. It means you're not a pushover. I don't want a woman I can walk all over. I want a woman who can stand up for herself."
"That's what love is all about, babe. Forgiveness. I watched my parents make a lot of mistakes in their marriage, and I'm bound and determined to never make the same mistakes in mine."
