“When I read "Then Came You", I liked Derek Craven's character and sense of humor, although sometimes he was very harsh to Lily and a cruel bastard, but I still think he has some goodness left in him, I mean anyone who was raised like him would be harsh and cruel but he cared for Lily in his own way.
I simply loved the book, of course everything changed in the middle around chapter 7 and 9, but I loved how much Derek longed for Sara. I was sad to see the gambling club fall down by fire... It seemed like an hotel sometimes, with the services and chef's food! I laughed when people insisted Mathilda is real and asked about her life!
I loved when Derek said to Sara: "I want to hold you like this until your skin melt into mine. I want you in my bed, the smell of you on my sheets, your hair spread across my pillow. I want to take your innocence. God! I want to ruin you for anyone else."
and: "Sometimes... I'm so deep inside you I can feel your womb... and I'm still not close enough. I want to share every breath... every beat of your heart. Sometimes... I want to punish you a little... For making me want you until I ache with it. For the way I wake at night just to watch you sleeping... I want you more each time I'm with you. It's a fever that never leaves me. I can't be alone without wondering where you are, when I can have you again..."”
