Shelby Reed Quotes

"I just want, she said when hed finally broken down her defenses. And so had he. Hed wanted her to desire him, but truthfully, whether she knew it or not, any mans tender arms would do. The woman was wounded and aching for love, and it didnt matter who Adrian was, or that he was the one who held her. But it had mattered to him. His eyelids slid closed as he envisioned all the pleasure he could have shown her, if she hadnt had the decency to decline. No toys or tricks needed for this one; just deep, primal fucking. Stripping away her inhibitions alone would have been erotic enough to test his endurance."

And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty." - Author: John Grogan
