So I’m writing the tail end of Dirty/Bad/wrong – my part of Taking Care of Business and Dix and Kate are on the precipiece here – he wants her for more than just a woman to have sex with. She’s unsure for a host of reasons but she’s got a major thing for him because he gets to her in a way no one does – in a way she’s never allowed anyone to.
So as it happens, I have this very sex laden soundtrack for this book but one song that I keep returning to is The Dave Matthews Band’s Crash…
He says to her: “Bullshit, Kate. You know what to want. You want what you want.” He shrugged. “That’s not the complicated part. Wanting is easy.”
wanting is easy, needing is hard, loving is hard – love isn’t enough and she knows it.
There’s something about the song that gets at the rawness of desire tinged with love, with adoration. Because it means something more to desire someone you love.
