"We don't have the sort of twee, traditional relationship that you obviously look for, Dylan. We're adults, and if we want to add a third or a fourth, then that's our business. You should try it sometime."
This book is awful. I wish it came with a warning, like "shitty MC" or "MC fucks everything that moves BESIDES the love interest".
"In the end, he doesn't say a thing. Just reaches over and puts his hand upon my knee. A burst goes through me, like teeth breaking through the skin of a summer fruit in its prime."
Beautiful prose is beautiful.
"When you are a lad who enjoys getting other lads in bed, you have to develop a rather fastidious sense for who plays the same instrument or there's a chance you'll find yourself at the business end of a hangman's knot.

"What? You'd deny a hardworking girl a little eye candy?"
"This ain't Halloween."

"Sex was okay, even sucking dick was okay. That was to get off. Kissing, though... that you did only because you had something to say that words didn't quite do it for. That meant feelings and messiness."
"I'm sorry," Jack said again after a few minutes' recovery time. "I've just... never seen anything like that. Somebody getting killed right in front of me."
Um, except that you did? To be precise, this is LITERALLY the whole premise of the book and the catalyst for its story.
