Top 10 Book Boyfriends

In lull of a new review, I thought I would do something a bit different today. I’ve drawn up a list of my top 10 book boyfriends:

  1. Roth – White Hot Kiss (Jennifer L. Armentrout)
  2. Rhysand – A Court of Mist and Fury (Sarah J. Maas)
  3. Damon – Lux – (Jennifer L. Armentrout)
  4. Rowan – Empire of Storms (Sarah J. Maas)
  5. Jesse – The Mediator Series (Meg Cabot)
  6. Cam – Wait for Me (Jennifer L. Armentrout)
  7. Reed – Inescapable (Amy A Bartol)
  8. Kayden – Sweet Evil (Wendy Higgins)
  9. Lucas -Easy (Tammara Webber)
  10. Ren – Wicked (Jennifer L. Armentrout)

I have tried to put them in like order 1 being my favorite but if I’m honest Roth and Rhys are a tie, there is no way I could really choose between them.  Most of the guys on the lower part of the list are from books that I read a couple of years ago and I remember them being just awesome characters.

I’d like to make a special mention to No 5, Jesse has been one of my favorite book boyfriends probably for the last 10+ years. I have read the Mediator series numerous time just for the joy it brings me to read about him!

So there you have it! Feel free to let me know some your favorite book boyfriends in the comments ✌🏼

With This Heart – R.S GREY

*Contains a few tiny spoilers*

Blurb

If someone had told me a year ago that I was about to fall in love, go on an epic road trip, ride a Triceratops, sing on a bar, and lose my virginity, I would have assumed they were on drugs.

Well, that is, until I met Beckham.

Beck was mostly to blame for my recklessness. Gorgeous, clever, undeniably charming Beck barreled into my life as if it were his mission to make sure I never took living for granted. He showed me that there were no boundaries, rules were for the spineless, and a kiss was supposed to happen when I least expected.

Beck was the plot twist that took me by surprise. Two months before I met him, death was knocking at my door. I’d all but given up my last scrap of hope when suddenly, I was given a second chance at life. This time around, I wasn’t going to let it slip through my fingers.

We set out on a road trip with nothing to lose and no guarantees of tomorrow.

Our road trip was about young, reckless love.

The kind of love that burns bright.

The kind of love that no road-map could bring me back from.

Page Length: 318
Publication Year: 2014

Characters: Abby and Beck


Story

Abby has been in and out of hospital most of her life and living with a short expiry date due to her heart condition. But then she gets a heart transplant and suddenly she is able to start living. I really liked how profound this book was. There were some really sad moments but this was perfectly balanced by the happy moments. Abby and Becks relationship development was quite beautiful to read, it was well paced and balanced, I liked how they bounced off one another. I also admired Becks patience with Abby whose limited/non-existent experience of being in a relationship lead to moments that would have mad most men extremely pissed off but Beck handle them with a maturity that most 21 years lack.

I don’t think I can find fault with any of this story, it was well-written and thought provoking, I felt Abby’s struggle with how she should be living her life was very well done. The sadness and injustice she feels when she loses her best friend to cancer added to her growing love for Beck gave her character lots of emotional depth.

 

I’ve deliberately not written to much about what happens in the story because it’s really better kept a surprise and I’m trying to keep my reviews a spoiler free as possible.

Promise Me – Vivian Wood/Willow Winters

Blurb: 

The Navy made me the man I am, but I wouldn’t have survived without her.

Violet Shaw. My Vi.

I made her a promise a long time ago, and she thinks I broke it. But I never stopped loving her. I never will.I was fool four years ago. I threw what we had away, thinking it was for her own good. No girl should have to wait around for a soldier that might never come home.Everyday I thought about her; I fought to come back to her.

Now that I’m back in our hometown, I see her everywhere, as curvaceous and tempting as ever. But all she’s doing is pushing me away.

I was her first and I want to be her last.

I just need one chance.

I threw what we had away once — I won’t make that mistake again. Vi is going to be mine.

Characters: Hunter and Violet

After reading a lengthy trilogy this was a nice change of pace. This story is centered around Hunter and Violet, who were high school sweethearts until Hunter left Violet to join the Navy. Now he is back and determined to make this right with Violet.

Although I did enjoy this story I didn’t really connect to any of the characters. I can say that I preferred Violet to Hunter, though. Hunter is your stereotype alpha male and his possessiveness was a little annoying although he did redeem himself when he beat the crap out of the guy who attacked Violet.

Umm there’s not much left to say really this book was short and sweet and I would recommend this a book to take on holiday and read by the pool.

My Rating: 3/5
