Top 5 Book Boyfriends by Peyton @A Bookish Mess
Kat Mandu chooses…
Jack Grammar – This sweet and awkward kid is bound to steal your heart with his adorable one liners, comedic behavior, and chivalry. Though he’s lacking a bit in the confidence department, maybe he just needs the right girl to show off to. You can find Jack in 24 Girls in 7 Days by Alex Bradley (YA).
Ravirn – Techno savvy, sarcastic, and a hero at heart, Ravirn is the bad boy in Kelly McCullough’s WebMage series, an urban fantasy/scifi series where Ravirn gets in over his head when it comes to hacking the computers of Greek gods. He’s sweet, funny, and he’s got some really mad skills yo…
Logan McEntire – Fierce, protective, smart, and good looking, Logan will set your heart on fire as you adventure with him in the Defiance trilogy by CJ Redwine. He’s got plans upon plans and best case/worst case scenarios for every situation. He was a pleasure to read and I think you’ll find you crush on him too as you read this fabulous trilogy. (YA)
Neville Longbottom – Who loves a hero who doesn’t even realize he’s a hero? Me. In all seven Harry Potter books by JK Rowling, Neville comes off as clumsy, forgetful, and often cowardly. But when it matters most, Neville is there to save the day with his quick-thinking and bravery.
Darrow – I often find I have another side to the awkward, shy types I normally go for. I like my anti-heroes brooding and vengeful at times, and that’s where Red Rising‘s Darrow comes in. Darrow is tough, smart, and ready to sacrifice anything to get his world back to the way it used to be (not to mention avenging the deaths of his loved ones). He’s on the list for best boyfriends and you can find him in Pierce Brown’s epic sci-fi trilogy, Red Rising.
Nervous Nellie says…
Wow! You go Kat! Everybody loves a lover! Here’s my choices…
Roarke – is a fictional character from the series In Death. He is the husband of Lt. Eve Dallas and together, they are the main characters of the futuristic (circa 2058 AD) romance-mystery series by J.D. Robb, pseudonym for NY Times best-selling author Nora Roberts. A former career criminal, Roarke is the owner and CEO of Roarke Industries, an inter-planetary corporation that has made him one of the richest men in the world. Via Wikipedia
Reyes Alexander Farrow – is a fictional character from the series of Charley Davidson by Darynda Jones. He is the son of Satan. He waited for her to be born. His smoldering countenance is enough to make me swoon.
Bruiser/George Dumas – is a fictional character from the series of Jane Yellowrock by Faith Hunter. He is smart and powerful in his own right. He’s not perfect and it took a little to convince me to forgive his transgressions. He treats Jane much better than Ricky Bo ever did.
Clive Stewart – is a fictional character from the Goddess with a Blade series by Lauren Dane. He is the haughty, stylish Scion of North America who shows Rowan Summerwaite exactly how much he loves her by taking care of her even though she can take care of herself.
Death or Falin Andrews – are both fictional characters from the Alex Craft series by Kalayna Price. Death is the grim reaper and Falin is Fae. They tussle over Alex often. It’s fun.
Invested Ivana indicates…
Hmm… there are a lot of great guys out there in the fiction world, but I’m not sure I could come up with five *boyfriends.* There’s really only one for sure, but let me stretch just a bit…
Owen Grayson – The Elemental Assassin series by Jennifer Estep.
George “Bruiser” Dumas – Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter (post-vampire employment).
Adam Hauptman – Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs.
Simon Wolfgard – The Others series by Anne Bishop.
These four men are completely in love with and dedicated to their women. They are strong and reliable and can be trusted to do what they think is right, even when that thing is frustratingly alpha-male. In particular, I think I’d adore spending time with Simon in both human and wolf form.
However, though these men are incredibly attractive, there is really only one book boyfriend for me:
Jamie Fraser – Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. You can’t hardly blame me; the man is written to be devastatingly attractive on all levels — gorgeous, intelligent, passionate, noble, loyal, mischievous, determined, and vulnerable all at the same time. I’m not sure there is a woman alive who wouldn’t fall in love with him after reading the first book. Jamie gets my whole book-heart. 😉
Ruby Lee resonates…
Jack Sheriden from Virgin River series by Robyn Carr. That is the person that comes to my mind first when I think of book boyfriends. He is supportive, can win any fight and he cooks.
Donovon Kelly from the KGI series by Maya Banks. Former military man that travels around the world with this team to save people and he is a computer geek that loves children.
Reese Bareden from Bare it All by Lori Foster. He is smart, sexy, a lawyer that fights against human trafficking and he loves dogs. Is there a better combo?
Reyes Farrow from the Charley Davidson books by Darynda Jones. If you read the books, you would understand. Enough said.
Eric Northman from the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. I know how the books ended and Sookie made the right choice but part of me will always be on Team Eric.
