You are the one girl that made me risk eveything for a future worth having.
I want to try making things right because picking up the pieces is way better than leaving them the way they are.
One of the things that makes me who I am is the loyalty I have to people I hold close to my heart.
Love is honesty. Love is a mutual respect for one another.
Look at me, chica.” When she does, I repeat, “Eres hermosa.””What does it mean?””You’re beautiful.

When they’re together, the world could fall apart around them and they’d never notice or care as long as they have each other.
the scary part is that people don’t realize how much they’ve changed .
And while my mind is telling me I’m flirting with her just to prove a point, my body wants to play “you show me your perky privates and I’ll show you mine.
And my piece of advice is…don’t flirt with any of the female instructors. They all have access to weapons bigger than yours.
You’re not the only one in this relationship who loves achallenge,” he says. “And just so you know for the future, I like my double-chocolate chipcookies warm and soft in the middle . . . and without magnets glued to them.

Consider me your candy stripper… I mean striper.
Dios mio, I think my brother lost his balls somewhere between here and Mexico. Or maybe Brittany has them zipped inside that fancy purse (of hers).
Can I request another peer guide, One who isn’t so happy to be at school at 7:30 a.m.?
Girls like you want to cut guy’s nuts off and hang ’em from your rearview mirror.
He’s my brother, my blood. He annoys the hell out of me most of the time, but when it comes right down to it I want to see him graduate from college and have little annoying mini-Alexes and mini-Brittanys running around in the future
Maggie squeezes my hand. It’s a silent message that everything will be okay. Somehow I believe her. In the end everything will be okay. But hurdles have to be jumped through first.
I thought we were gonna take this relationship slow.””A back rub is harmless.”My eyes roam over her kick-ass bikini-covered bod. “I’ll have you know I’ve been intimate with girls wearin’ a lot more.

Do you ever lose the ego?” Westford asks me.“Yeah.” When his daughter kisses me, my ego flies out the window.
I want to make sure Kiara’s got a boyfriend who has more to offer than a hot bod and a face that could make angels weep.
How was the kiss with Alex?””Nice,” I say, thinking about how sensual it was. “Actually, Isabel, it was more than nice. It was fucking incredible.”Isabel starts laughing, and I laugh right along with her this time.
Makin’ mistakes ain’t a crime, you know. What’s the use of having a reputation if you can’t ruin it every now and then?
I wish I could turn back time, but I can’t. I made a stupid decision because I thought I was invincible, and I’ll pay for it the rest of my life.
There’s always time for arguin’ when you’re a Fuentes.
The percentage of couples who stay together after high school is, like, less than five percent, you guys.
What are you boys doing?” she asks, as if we’re still little kids messing around.“Arguin’,” Carlos says matter-of-factly.

I’ll always love you, no matter what happens, okay?
A text pops up on the screen. It’s from Luis. I can’t help but grin when I read his perfectly thought-out me

I’m not going anywhere until you hear me out.”Oh, please no. Anything except having to listen to her lecture. I push the button that calls the
Is that your cheap way of telling me you want to kiss
When she wraps her arms around my neck, all I want to do is protect this girl for the rest of my life.
I realise it’s going to happen. This girl of my dreams, this girl who is more like me than anyone I’ve ever met, wants to kiss me.
You were lookin’ at me like you wanted to kiss me.”I force a laugh. “Yeah, right,” I say sarcastically.“Nobody’s watchin’ if you want to, you know, try it. Not to brag, but I’m somewhat of an expert.
You can’t keep her.”I know that. But I’m not ready to give her up just yet.
She ignores me, so I cup my hands over my mouth and do something I haven’t done in years— barnyard sounds.
Thoughts of being a pirate and stealing her away to my ship race across my mind. Although I’m not a pirate, and she’s not my captured princess.
Don’t try and make me feel better, Alex. I hate you.”“I hate you, too.

I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to be a dickhead. Well, I did.
Three things Marco taught me today race through my mind: boys will lie to your face just to have sex with you, don’t trust any boy who says I love you, and never date a boy who lives on the south side of Fairfield.
Listen, I didn’t ask for a face and body girls find attractive. But thanks to the mixture of my parents’ DNA, I’ve got them, and I’m not ashamed to use ’em.
You’ve got a big ego, Fuentes.”“That’s not all I’ve got.
The Professor doesn’t have a problem being called Dick? If my name was Richard, I’d go by Richard or Rich . . . not Dick. Hell, I’d even settle for being called Chard.
I wish I could help you” I whisper.You are,” he murmurs against my knee. “just dont leave me, okay? Everyone leaves me.

Do you think about making love with me?”I lie awake most nights, fantasizing about sleeping next to her … loving her. “Right now, muneca, makin’ love to you is the only thing on my mind.
The urge to jump into his arms and feel the warmth of them surrounding me is so powerful, I wonder if it’s medically possible to be addicted to another human being.
Why shouldn’t I be introspective? We dont’ make sense.””Neither do Chocolate and Peanut Butter, but it somehow works.” He says “Somehow the mixture of two things is genius.
You’re stressing too much about what might be. Do something to take your mind off thinking about what might never happen.
She’s a Texan, born and raised. Football is in our blood.
Snakes don’t have fuckin’ legs, so how was I supposed to think there’d be one hidin’ in the face of a damn rock that’s ten feet below the summit?
Do I hear a challenge?” she whispers, “Oh, Carlos. You know I can’t resist a challenge.
This connection we have isn’t going away, it’s only getting stronger. Because the more I spend time with her, the closer I want to be.
I write edgy, sexy teen romances, and that’s what I’ll continue to do.
