He gives the perfect first kiss.

“My first kiss...and it was everything I’d imagined it to be, with the exception of there being an audience for it. But it was hard to acknowledge them or their cheering and whistles. Flames scorched my already heated skin. Dez’s lips moved against mine, working the tight seam open. I gasped, wondering where in the world he’d learned to kiss like that. Jealousy flared like a beacon on the heels of that thought. Okay. I didn’t want to know how he’d learned.” 

He is patient.

"And I am just saying that by the end of these seven days or maybe a week from then, or a month, you'll say yes." He cupped my cheek and leaned in, pressing his forehead to mine. "And I'll be waiting, No mater how long it takes."

He puts his gal before his duty.

"Are you going out with them?"

I should, but I think before we got distracted, you wanted to talk. And right now that's more important."

As his words sank in, I realized he was putting me before his duty. He had been for seven days. Catering to me. Playing babysitter. Following me around while I did a whole lot of nothing, and he hadn't complained once. Even enjoyed himself because he... he had been with me.

Dez made mistakes.  He is trying to atone for them in Bitter Sweet Love.  His reasons for his mistakes makes them all the more sweet.
