Why did I fall for Nix? Well...
- He is so beautifully broken that you can not, not want to help him and love him
- His tattoo scroll pretty much says it all about him about how he sees the beauty in the world
- Once he let love in, it just completed him and made him so much more whole
Some of the examples of why Nixon stole my heart:
"The difference is now...I love you more than the air I breathe and I feel so very empty without in my life..."
"I promise that I will cherish you when we are intimate, and I won't intentionally hurt you."
"I just want you to know that this is forever. My love for you, that is. My heart is a complete slave to you and I just want you by my side...always."
by Sawyer Bennett (Goodreads Author)“There is a vulnerability there, hovering just below the surface. And I want to pick at it until I expose it. Then I want to kiss it."
