My book boyfriend (6) Max

My book boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie at The Unread reader.
If you want to know what is My book boyfriend, or you want to join just go to the Introduction post at The Unread reader  and enjoy!

My book boyfriend of this week is Max, from The Pledge. There are so many things I love about this guy. Specially the way he cares about Charlie.
“Nothing's going to happen to you," Max interrupted, gripping my shoulders and forcing me to look at him. "Because you're not going to do it. You're going to tell her to go to hell!” 
“I pledge to keep you safe.” 
“I saw the folded note peeking up from behind the cover of the book in which I'd hidden it.
I brushed my fingertips across the lineny surface, my skin sparking with electricity, my fingers itching to pull it free.
I shoudn't, I told myself, even as I held my breath and watched myself withdrawing it from the book. I tried to tamp down the feeling of anticipation coursing through me at the same time I argued that it was a mistake to look at it again.

It didn't deserve anymore of my time. He didn't deserve the space he already occupied in my mind. 
I held the letter, vividly picturing the six words written inside the folds. Six words that I already knew by heart. Six words that meant more to me than they should.
I unfolded the top third of the paper, then the bottom, purposely keeping my eyes unfocused for just a moment.  My heart stopped.  And then my eyesight cleared.-Charlie.
And then, this Max is actor Drew Roy. Hope you like him!
