Page 30: I don’t want to be attracted to a guy who drinks himself into oblivion, cries over other girls, and can’t even remember if he screwed you the night before.

Page 50: His shirt isn’t buttoned. I’m staring at his stomach. Oh my word, he has the V. Those beautiful indentations on men that run the length of their outer abdominal muscles, disappearing beneath their jeans as if the indentations are pointing to a secret bull’s-eye. Jesus Christ, Tate, you’re staring at his damn crotch!

Page 85: He wants me for sex. I kind of miss sex. It’s been a while. I know I’m definitely attracted to him and can’t think of anyone else in my life I’d rather have casual, meaningless sex with than my airline pilot, laundry-folding neighbor…I just told this guy I would have sex with him without any expectations, and he’s still way over there, and I’m way over here, and it’s becoming clear I definitely had him pegged wrong.

Page 108: And then I freak the hell out because Miles will see my bra and underwear tonight. And possibly touch them. If it’s part of his agenda, he might even be the one to remove them.
