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!

Teaser: Resisting Fate by Heather Van Fleet

Teaser for Resisting Fate by Heather Van Fleet. A young adult novel, releasing June 28th.Resisting Fate Final

Seventeen-year-old Emmy O’Connell is the epitome of a hot mess.

Her boyfriend’s been shipped out of town to some boarding school four states away. Her step-douche is constantly drunk and badgering her. And then there’s her good-ole-mom… The lady is nothing more than a miserable shell of a woman. She’s turned off all of her feelings and her ability to be a good mother as well, leaving poor Emmy and her four year old brother Jamie to suffer. Life couldn’t get much worse, right?

Enter the elusive, cocky, and oh-so-broody Jack Hartman…

The jerk cousin of her boyfriend becomes Emmy’s worst nightmare…times ten. He’s cruel. He’s insensitive. But he also has this strange little ability over her – he makes her weak in the knees with the single touch. No matter how miserable or amazing Jack makes her feel, Emmy can’t seem to deny him, especially when he takes on the role of her protector –her pseudo-knight in a black leather coat.

A knight who also happens to ride in on his black Harley, instead of a white horse…

And to make a bad situation worse…

Werewolves and teens shouldn’t mix! But what can Emmy do when she finds herself thrown head first into the center of it all. Can she handle the supernatural mess her life rapidly becomes or will she fight against the inevitable fate her heart desires?

“That smart mouth doesn’t sit well with me,” he licked his lips. His eyes never wavered from mine.

I nibbled on my lower lip, just as a small smile graced the edges of my mouth. Oh yeah, my bravado was about ready to kick some ass. I think I kind of liked being a smart ass.

“What are you going to do about it Jack?” I inhaled a breath, taking in his warm, delicious scent. My throat went even drier than before. I practically stared holes into his face as I studied every tiny mark, every single scar on his perfectly flawed skin. He was gorgeous, with a little scar here, a little white patch there. His hotness could have left me breathless for days if I kept up my perusal any longer.

And then I blinked, Christ. I knew exactly what had to be done. I had to kiss him. I had to get this itch scratched and then I had to move on. His eyes darkened, his breath was warm and heavy over my face, and he licked his lips. I blinked. Holy-balls… He wanted to kiss me too.

That ever-present electricity running between us wouldn’t stop. If anything, it only increased our pull. I moved in; his lips touching my lips was all I wanted. I needed to feel again, feel it all with a boy who hated me, but apparently wanted to kiss me as badly.

Dryness on dryness soon changed to warmth on warmth, and when I pressed my mouth fully to his, his hands left my neck, and went to my waist. His fingernails dug into my sides and the son of a bitch pushed me away from him.

So there I was, my head tilted to the side, ready, willing, and able to do whatever the hell this moment led us too, and all he could do was chuckle. Yes. Chuckle. He was the biggest rat bastard.

Ever.
