That's What HE Said is a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful ladies at Chapter Break. It's a chance for us to spotlight and gush over a quote from our current book crush to the object of his desire. We like to pretend it's us ;)
What better way to celebrate our book boyfriends?

The Shatter Me series is a great choice if you're looking for something that has plenty of tension. With Ignite Me, I had no idea which way Juliette would go, but I enjoyed the chemistry she had with Warner when she was around him. ~ Bel
Warner steps so close to me I’m actually afraid to move.
“You once accused me of not knowing the meaning of love,” he says. “But you were wrong. You fault me, perhaps, for loving you too much.” His eyes are so intense. So green. So cold. “But at least I do not deny my own heart.”
“And you think I do,” I whisper.
Warner drops his eyes. Says nothing.
“What you don’t understand,” I tell him, my voice catching, “is that I don’t even know my own heart anymore. I don’t know how to name what I feel yet and I need time to figure it out. You want more right now but right now what I need is for you to be my friend—”
“I do not have friends,” he says.
“Why can’t you try?” He shakes his head. “Why? Why not give it a chance—”
“Because I am afraid,” he finally says, voice shaking, “that your friendship would be the end of me.”
I’m still frozen in place as his office door slams shut behind him.
