Book: Shift by Rachel Vincent
"If I love you more than you love me, I'm as good as dead. Yet I can't make myself take it back. I can't just walk away from you, because every time you pass by me without smiling, without touching my hand, or at least making eye contact, it feels like I'm dying inside. And I'm pretty sure that hurts worse than whatever Marc would do to me. Whatever your dad would do.
"Hell, Faythe, I'm pretty sure that never touching you again would hurt worse than the nastiest death Calvin could think up for me."
"Let her go or I'll kill him." Jace said, and my pulse thumped against the hand at my throat. He'd do it. I could see that in his eyes.
