et haec

Ronan wrapped his arms around Adam, pinning Adam’s upper arms against him. He was contained. “Forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit,” Ronan said into Adam’s hearing ear, and Adam’s body sagged against Ronan, chest heaving. […] His head rested miserably on Ronan’s shoulder, everything shaking, standing only because Ronan did not allow him to sink.

So on my second read of TRK...

I took the time to look up some of the Latin phrases used and I got to this part:

Forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit,” Ronan said into Adam’s hearing ear, and Adam’s body sagged against Ronan, chest heaving. His hands still jerked and strained to violence. He gasped, “You asshole,” but Ronan could hear how near tears he was.

and then I found this:

and then I promptly dissolved into a puddle because oh my lord could they be any more adorable.

Unguibus et rostro,” Adam said.
Ronan put Adam’s fingers to his mouth.
He was never sleeping again.

Forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit,” Ronan said into Adam’s hearing ear, and Adam’s body sagged against Ronan, chest heaving. His hands still jerked and strained to violence. He gasped, “You asshole,” but Ronan could hear how near tears he was.

After 3 books, when you think you can’t love Ronan Lynch any more...

In TRK He:

Straight up pulls some Snow White shit at the Barnes

Eases every tense situation with wry humor

Spits in Robert Parrish’s yard while giving him the death stare.

Is poetic and daring with Adam - loves him furiously

Kisses Adam first!

Basically acts as Orphan Girl’s father (“Put your hands in your pockets!”)

Doesn’t think before diving in after her when she’s drowning

Has easy banter with Blue

Gives Declan that inch.

Whispers “Forsan et haec olim meminisse iuvabit” (A joy it will be one day, perhaps, to remember even this) to Adam when he is possessed  Just the thing to calm him.

Fights till the bitter end when he is being “unmade”

…I mean….Just….GAH!

Ronan Fucking Lynch.
