Book Boyfriend of the Week: What Kind is Yours? - Nash Davenport from Everything for Us by M. Leighton

TITLE: "Book Boyfriend of the Week: What kind is yours?"

This is a meme created by Reading and Things for bloggers to talk about their boyfriends and teases their readers with things they've said.  

Want to participate?

All you have to do is:
1) Pick a book boyfriend, it can be from the book your currently reading or from one you've already read.
2) Write what kind of boyfriend he is, and if you want, say why you think that.
3) Pick a quote from his book, it could be long or short, that proves he is the kind of boyfriend you said he is
4) Make sure the quote, and the explanation, DO NOT give away anything from the book (we want all of the twists and plot surprises to remain surprises)
5) Share it! And shout it out it using #Reading and Things.

This week my book boyfriend of the week is Nash Davenport from Everything For Us by M. Leighton.  He can be a jerk,  is definitely a heartbreak, and even kind of scary, but he sure is smoking hot.

When it comes to passion this hot, it’s all or nothing. 

Olivia Townsend’s wealthy cousin Marissa had everything a girl could ask for—a great job, a privileged life, and all the friends she wanted. Or, at least, all the friends money could buy. But one case of mistaken identity has turned her privileged world upside down.

An abduction gone wrong lands her right in the lap of the sexiest, most dangerous man she’s ever met. To Marissa, he’s an enigma, but one to whom she’s irresistibly, inexplicably drawn.

With him comes a new world of freedom and passion, of dark shadows and dangerous secrets, a world where nothing is what it seems—except for the blind passion that Marissa can’t escape—or maybe even survive.

“I’m not taking a chance. I feel like I can’t breathe without you. I’m just doing what I need to do to survive. It’s as simple as that.”
“Then let me be your air,” he says quietly.” 

“I crave everything he represents. He feels like rebellion. And freedom. Like a salvation of sorts. I just didn’t know until recently that I needed saving. -Marissa”

“I’d be willing to bet your parts are exceptional.  In fact, now might be a good time to warn you that if we come back to this library, I’ll find out for myself.  In this very spot.  I’ll push you up against the books in the corner and I’ll put my hands on you.  I’ll do things to you.  In the quiet.  And you won’t be able to make a sound.  Not a whimper, not a moan.  You’ll have to bite your lip to keep it all inside.  And you know what?” I ask, reaching up to trace my index finger along her full, trembling lower lip. 
“What?” she whispers, her pupils two dilated dots of excitement.
“You’ll love every second of it.” 
With a wicked grin, I take the books from her arms and turn to walk back the way I came.

“I think there are times in life when you need something to lose yourself in, something to take away the pain, take away the feeling of everything else. Something to numb it. Just for a while. - Nash” 
“It took me a couple of months to realize I was in love with her. Well, probably not to realize it. More like to admit it. And when I did, I knew that was why I had chosen to stay away from her. I love her enough to want her to be happy and safe and successful, and all that other shit. I want her to have everything she wants in life. - Nash” 

I’m so sorry for the life you had to lead. You were so young,” she says, her voice thick with emotion.  “You didn’t deserve that.”
Her hand splays across my chest as she scatters kisses all over my face and neck.  I feel drops of warm wetness every so often.  I don’t realize they’re tears until one hits my lips and I taste the salt.
She makes her way to my stomach then down my right leg and back up again, dragging her lips and tongue along the inside of my thigh.
It’s not often I see the goodness in people. Or that they surprise me with compassion.  Yet Marissa has.  I just told her I’m a criminal and a killer, and rather than running the other direction, she cried for me.
Something burns deep inside my chest.  I don’t have time to think about it or deny it, or devise a plan to rid myself of it.  Marissa sees to that when her lips close over me.  She makes it so that she’s all I can think about.  She erases all other thoughts with the first swipe of her tongue.  And I’m happy to let them go.
