Top Ten Book Boyfriends by Heather Van Fleet

My top ten book boyfriends by Heather Van Fleetbook boyfriend quote pic 1

We all have them, admit it; that one fictional boy that has the ability to make your pulse rise to the point of no return. He has a tendency to piss you off, but at the same time you can’t help how utterly in love you are with him. Because let’s face it…when he’s on, he’s on.

I love to write about those boys too…but as much as I love Mason (from When It’s Least Expected) and Jack (from Resisting Fate) I can’t even begin to compare them to the hottie-mc-hotties I’ve listed below.

Now…some of you my hate my choices, so don’t knock me for it, kay? Or, some of you may just have a few of these boys on your own list. What matters is we all agree that it’s the BOYS and MEN that make up an awesome book. No contest. If I don’t like the boys, I don’t like the book. It’s kind of sad, but it’s also the truth and I’m all about the honesty here.

tatoo book bfSo enough with my obsession – it’s time I shared the love. What kind of author would I be if I didn’t?  So without further ado…here are my top ten book boyfriends of all times.

10. My number ten book boyfriend is no surprise. He’s the boy who started it all for me – the sparkly vampire that would do anything for his lady love. Yes indeed Edward Cullen to me is the epitome of a genuine, sweet, loving book boyfriend, and he will always have a little piece of my heart.

9. I have a bit of an obsession with bad boys. I mean, don’t we all? I love them muscled, bald, and tattooed, and Seth ‘Ghost’ Warren from Leave Me Breathless by Cherrie Lynn is that kind of guy for me. Woo-wee… Can we just say delish and leave it at that?

8. Love in an elevator? No, I’m not singling an Aerosmith song, I’m thinking about Caden Grayson from Laura Kay’s Hearts in Darkness. Yet another sweet bad boy with tats. Are you starting to see a pattern here? J

7. Who doesn’t love a Book boy friend 2snarky boy too? I mean, I know I do, and the best kind to me is Shane, from the Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine. Sexy, arrogant and rude… Yep all the best ingredients I need in a book boyfriend, for sure, lol.

6. Now here’s another exception to the rules today. This is the second boy on my list (besides Edward) who has the absolute sweet, devotion thing down pat. Caleb, from the Significance series by Shelly Crane. He fights for the people he loves and boy does he love hard. Yet another boy I can’t wait to see on the big screen someday…

5. Now I’m a bit obsessed with YA heroes because that’s what I really enjoy reading. And one of the sexiest YA heroes around to me is Patch from the Hush Hush series. Fallen angels…need I really say more than that? Nope, I think not.

4. Who doesn’t love a sexy man-vampire that can wear the hell out of the color pink? Jack from Amanda Hocking’s My Blood Approves series is that man to me. He was sweet, did the right thing (sometimes) and was the underdog. I’m a big time sucker for sexy underdog heroes by the way.

3. I’m going cliché here, butbook boyfriend 3 as far as I’m concerned, Christian Grey from Fifty Shades of Grey can be my dominant man any day of the week. (Um, wow…did I really just admit that?) He’s tortured, but has that sweet passionate side to him that I couldn’t get enough from. I know there’s an influx of woman that either love him, or hate him. But I’ll tell you one thing: I certainly can’t wait to see him and his red room of pain next August.

2. Who doesn’t love the tattooed bad boy from Jamie McGuire’s Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster? I mean really, how much hotter can you get than a man like that? He’s sexy and will do absolutely anything for his Pigeon. Seriously, Travis Maddox is just plain yum-o.

1. And of course, my number one book boyfriend out there is definitely a fave among all ages of woman, from fourteen to forty-two. This cocky, sexy, green eyed alien boy has stolen my heart, ruined me for all other book boyfriends out there. His name you ask? Well, it’s Daemon Black from Jennifer Armentrout’s Lux Series. Le’ Sigh… No words can even begin to tell you what this devilish boy has done to me. But I will say that every hero out there in the fictional world definitely has a lot to live up and it’s all because of the boy who calls his girl Kitten.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my list! Now…tell me who YOUR number one is!

Reviews:

Overall, this book was nice, I great distraction and entertainment, the scenes were well build and it was the first time I read about were-tigers and I was enjoying the difference from the usual werewolves story. ~ Proserpine Craved For

This is the first book that I have read from Marissa Dobson and it definitely won’t be my last. I loved the tiger shapeshifter aspect of this book which I haven’t read much about in previous books. ~ Jennifer at Books-n-Kisses

I have to say this book was engrossing. I could not put it down. There was some romance, some suspense, some shifting and some intrigue. I am pleasantly surprised at how much I really liked this story. ~ Kimberly at Books-n-Kisses

The world Marissa has created for her shifters is fascinating with likable characters that are easy to relate to. The book got better as it went along and I have a feeling the series is going to get better and better with each book. ~Delphina Reads Too Much

When I first read a review for Tiger Time, I knew this was a must read. Now I know that it is definitely a must read for anyone that like were romances. It’s definitely one of those that draws you immediately into the story, and never lets you go… a wonderfully written story of a woman’s journey into the unknown and a man who would show her to her destiny. LOVED IT!!!! Looking forward to the next one in the series. ~ Addicted to Romance

I was knocked back by this rather steamy story… ~ My Home Away from Home

Beautiful description of the area you felt like you were there. or wanted to be there. I really enjoyed this book, I’ll read it again. ~Amazon Reader

This book was absolutely magnificent. I couldn’t put it down not even for a moment. The idea of endangered love and magical shifters had my full attention on the first page and it only got better from there. ~Amazon Reader

I really love this book! Can’t wait for the next one. Until then I will re-read. Lol Very good plot and action as well as romance. Love how it all comes together! ~Amazon Reader

Excerpt:

Tabitha screamed and jumped up quickly when she felt the solid body against hers. “Who the hell are you?”

“Don’t scream, Tabitha. You didn’t meet me tonight. I wanted to make sure you were all right. When I arrived, there was blood in the hall, your door was open, and I came in. There was more blood in your apartment. I called the hospitals, and they had no listings under your name, so I stayed here to see if you would return.”

While he spoke, she noticed his body. He must have been two hundred and twenty pounds, all of it muscle. He had arms the size of her waist. He reminded her of one of the biker guys who came into the restaurant. His chin-length black hair and broad shoulders gave him a menacing look. The only thing that hinted he might have a softer side was his spectacular, ocean blue eyes. His hair, brushing against the collar of his shirt, made her want to run her hands through it to see if it was as soft as it looked. But not right now.

“Back up. How do you know my name?”

“Didn’t you get the note I left on your door yesterday? My name is Ty Reynolds. I was a friend of your father’s.” He sat there on the couch watching her, careful not to move as if worried he’d scare her.

Shock must have shown on her face, because before she could say anything, he added, “I’m not here to hurt you. If I wanted to hurt you, I would have done so already. I made a promise to your father that when you were old enough, I would tell you everything, and I would do everything I could to protect you.”

My caseworker must have had the information wrong. If this man was a friend of dad’s, then he had to be a murder or into some deep shit. At this moment in time, however, she didn’t care. “I don’t care who you are. I want you out of my apartment!” She walked over to her door and opened it. “Please leave.”

“Listen, Tabitha, I know you’re scared, but you need to listen to me. Please just give me ten minutes.”

“You broke into my apartment and now you want me to listen to you? I don’t want anything to do with you.”
