I can’t finish out the year without mentioning the book boyfriends that have come into my life this year. I’d like to say that almost all heroes have the potential to become a book boyfriend, but there are those who stand out the most.
1. Johnathan Kerr from Black Bullet
Holy heck, this agony filled, fledgling vampire pushed all the right buttons for me. What is it about brooding, sexy heroes set in an gritty backdrop of a post apocalyptic type world? Well, if you like all those things, he’d make a good candidate for your new book boyfriend. 🙂 He has a lot to prove to himself and others.
2. Arend Aubury from A Night of Forever
Enter another brooding hero. Sense a pattern here? Arend had a big secret past and we finally got to see inside his soul for this installment in the Disgraced Lords Series. He was a bit of a jerk in the previous books, but WE DIDN’T KNOW WHY! Mysterious is always a draw for me and redemption is a must. The best was saved for last.
3. Keane Winters from The Trouble with Mistletoe
I loved that his apparent sexiness did not mean a thing to Pita the cat. It brought him down a peg or two in the most endearing way. His interactions with the cat were funny and I loved that side to his character. Kindness to animals is important!
4. Luke Magellan from She’s Got A Way
Luke’s teasing personality and obvious hunkiness was a major draw for me in terms of book boyfriend candidate. He had a haunted past, but it did not make him bitter. His kindness towards kids and overall lightheartedness, made me go “aww” on several occasions. He was the sweetest one yet.
5. Reed from Signs of Attraction
Reed was a different type of hero altogether. His disability set him apart from all of the heroes I’ve ever read about. His inability to hear pulled at my heartstrings but it was his resolve to not let that disability get in the way that was really impressive. I loved it. He was the underdog, but yet, he was a very memorable character indeed.
I hope you can find your next book boyfriends from this list. (All images will take you to their respective Amazon pages.) For my reviews of these books check out the links below:
