A Jaden Quote

I'm still celebrating the upcoming release of WHAT A BOY NEEDS. Only a few more days! YAY.

Anyway, here's one of my favorite quotes from Jaden. I hope you like it.


Priscilla's face buries into my shirt as she lets go; big, sobbing cries that vibrate through me. Wetness seeps through my shirt, but I don't care. All I want to do right now is make it better. Take care of her. That's what you do, right? When someone is important to you, you take care of them. You try to take their pain away, pull it into yourself if you can, because it's easier to fight her demons for her than to risk someone scarring her.

I would take them all on if I could.

Nothing else matters right now so I shush her and rub her back and let my hands go through her hair. I'd do anything to make her feel better. Cut myself open and let her see all the secrets inside me. Whatever it takes. Whatever she needs.



Sigh. I don't know why this makes me so nervous. LOL. Jaden's story feels really personal to me for some reason.

Anyway, I added a link up top for the blog tour. If you're interested, check it out.

Happy Friday!
