“You’re such a beast,” I speak softly into his ear before nipping his lope lightly with my teeth. “But I’m your beast, and baby… every Beauty needs a Beast.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“You don’t have to be strong all the time. Let me take it, Beauty. Let me be your rock. Let ME fight. For Christ sake, let me be who you need.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“Don’t say pussy in church, motherfucker.”
“Oh yeah? Because motherfucker is better?”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“Don’t hide who you are. One thing I have learned is you never hide who you
are. If you want something, you fight for it. When you think you have fought hard enough, fight a little more. Don’t ever let anyone or any situation make who you are.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“Having her in my arms feels like coming home. I am not one to believe in all that love at first sight bullshit, but even as cynical as I am, I can recognize something bigger than lust at work. My body wants her; that is no secret, but the level of want is borderline craving. I need her. Needing someone is not something I am used to. No, I am used to being needed… something this woman clearly doesn’t want.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage



“You're a good man, Greg Cage. You give me some time, and I might just fall in love with you." "That's the plan, Beauty.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“I want him to be my white knight. I want him to save me from me.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“Trust me when I tell you that I have lived a life that makes me know when something is worth fighting for. I took one look at you and knew you were worth it to me. It’s new, I get that, but I know you feel it too.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“The way I see it is life is too short to sit on your ass and not live every minute as if it’s your last.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“At this point and fuck if she wants me to call her Timmy and bark like a dog, I will.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage



“Seems like an odd thing to toast to when you just agreed to go off with a complete
stranger and play hide the sausage.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“Whatever this might have been for you before now baby, there is no trying or going slow. I know you felt it; it was all over your face. I feel like I just found a piece of myself that has been lost forever. A piece of the puzzle that I didn’t even know was missing until you walked into my life. This, us… baby, I will work as hard as I can and then some to prove to you that you have nothing to fear.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“I won’t go so far as saying it was love at first sight, but it damn sure was hard on at first sight. That motherfucker doesn’t have selective taste though, so I can’t rely on that alone.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“Normally I would hate games, but with her, it feels like foreplay”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“Babe, how can you can be so blind when your eyes are wide open?  Even if he wasn’t the coolest kid I have ever met, even if I didn’t enjoy the hell out of my time reliving my childhood with the little guy, he is part of you.  No, he isn’t yours and I understand that, but he is part of you, and Beauty, how can I not love that”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage



“I might be many things, but I am also smart enough to learn from the past. Smart enough to know that no man who oozes so much alpha male will be happy with a woman who isn’t weak. Or, he won’t settle until he makes me weak, and I will never be that bitch.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“I want nothing to do with that, but the
lump in my throat is having fun calling me a liar. There is just no way to watch a love like that unite and not feel it.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“It’s like watching a caged animal try to escape. I can tell she wants to, she wants to let me in so bad, but she really doesn’t know how.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“When she forgets to be scared, she gazes at me like she knows I hold all the answers.
Yeah, I am officially hooked.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“Beauty, you need a ride?” He asks me, interrupting my inner slut. His eyes darken slightly, and there is no mistaking the real question behind those words.
“Depends on what kind of ride we’re talking about, stud.”
He laughs, and even that sounds like sex. “If I thought you were serious, I would tell you to jump on, babe.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage



“And what exactly are we starting?” I ask.
“Don’t play games right now, Melissa. Babe, you know just as good as I do that me and you are happening. This isn’t some cheap thrill. You feel it, but if you need me to remind you, just let me know.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“The games are over now; this is too raw.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“I know, trust me I do. I lived that for twelve years my man. The only thing I can give you is hope. Izzy and I went through our share of bumps, but in the end, if it’s meant to be, nothing can keep your woman from your arms.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“I am still trying to figure out how the hell I went from promising myself I wouldn’t get tangled up with this man, to seconds away from jumping on and saying yee-haw.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“For years, I have had fun but never let a man in. Greg, you have the power to not only get in but to destroy me if you ever want back out.”
“I can’t make you promises, Beauty . I can’t sit here and tell you that I’m worth letting those walls down for. But, I can tell you that if the way I feel for you now keeps growing, there isn’t an army strong enough to pull me out.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage



“to see what he has been packing all day makes my center weep with wetness.  Huge, thick and decorated.  He fingers the hoop, which causes his dick to jump and a hiss to shoot from his mouth.  As if the Prince Albert isn’t shocking enough, the second horizontal bar through his bulbous head has my jaw dropping.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“Come here handsome and give this old lady some thrills.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“Beauty, you can call me whatever you want as long as you’re screaming it.”
Before I can even process his actions, he bends down and gives me a quick but deep kiss. When he pulls back and rests his forehead against mine, I know I might as well have just signed on the dotted line.
The look he gives me is so full of promise that if I had been wearing underwear, they would have blown up, completely exploded, right from my skin.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“now I have to deal with another crayon not bright enough for the box.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage


“Before I can even process his actions, he bends down and gives me a quick but deep kiss.  When he pulls back and rests his forehead against mine, I know I might as well have just signed on the dotted line.  The look he gives me is so full of promise that if I had been wearing underwear, they would have blown up, completely exploded, right from my skin.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Cage

About BookQuoters

BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.

We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.

Founded in 2023, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
