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?

Since the new Jake Gyllenhal movie, Southpaw is in theatres, we thought we'd throw in a book boyfriend from the boxing world. This is Shel's pick from The Hurricane by R. J. Prescott. Enjoy!
“When you’re with me, you never have to be afraid of anything. I would decimate any fucker who so much as looked at you wrong if you asked me to. Tonight, you believed that, and you dropped your guard. You trusted me. Every time you let down another one of those barriers, I know that you are a bit closer to being mine. One day, when the last one falls, you’ll be as much mine as I am yours.”
