"My eyes fluttered closed. "Like hell I won't," I whispered. "I could kill you." "Then I'd die happy." "Not funny." "Not joking." I opened my eyes and focused on his. "I'd be happier without you," I lied as convincingly as I could. "Too bad." Noah's mouth curved into the half-smile I loved and hated so much, just inches from my navel. My head was foggy. "You're supposed to say, 'All I want is your happiness. I'll do whatever it takes, even if it means being without you.'" "Sorry," Noah said. "I'm just not that big of a person." His hands traveled up the side of my jeans, up to my waist. The pads of his fingertips grazed the skin just underneath the fabric of my shirt. I tried to steady my pulse and failed. "You want me," Noah said simply, definitively. "Don't lie to me. I can hear it." "Irrelevant," I breathed." "No, it isn't irrelevant. You want me as much as I want you. And all I want is you." My tongue warred with my mind. " Today," I whispered. Noah stood slowly, his body skimming mine as he rose. "Today. Tonight. Tomorrow. Forever." Noah's eyes held mine. His stare was infinite. "I was made for you, Mara."" 

Everyone meet Noah Shaw, my new book boyfriend!
