#BookBoyfriendsChallenge Day 26
Today will be The Clash of the Book Boyfriends or The Battle of Book Boyfriends. It is impossible to choose!!!! You see the flavor of the day is PNR and I read tons of PNR and I have a harem of PNR book boyfriends.
So today’s contest will be very hard as I have YA PNR Book Boyfriends and Adult PNR Book Boyfriends. See my predicament? So I’ll choose one YA and one Adult.
Now all YA contestants with no particular order:
Mark Blackthorn from Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices series) by Cassandra Clare. He is half fairy half Shadowhunter.
I know the main hero is Julian with Emma and I think Julian is admirable but… I love Mark. Torn between two worlds, he’ll have to find his place in this new world and choose to stay among Shadowhunter who despise the Fair Folk or go back to the Hunt hating Shadowhunters . His hopes and fragile new start will be crushed more than once and it was really hard reading about it.He is strong and a skilled hunter but retains some innocence. Maybe because he is bewildered so many times and speaks in the Fairy way. I wanted to protect his heart and his soul.
“And if we don’t have Energy runes, we’ll have to get our energy the old-fashioned way.”
Mark looked puzzled. “Drugs?”
“Chocolate,” Emma said. “I brought chocolate. Mark, where do you even come up with these things?”
Mark smiled crookedly, shrugging one shoulder. “Faerie humor?”
― Cassandra Clare, Lord of Shadows
Obviously Rhysand but ACOTAR is not YA anymore but rather NA.
I’ve already selected Rhysand as my perfect Royal book boyfriend but he certainly deserves a second nomination among PNR book boyfriends!
Raffe from Angelfall by Susan Ee
I can’t wait to see this book turned into a movie but I dread the wrong cast for Raffe. If he is not casted right I’ll go all berserker on the producers!
Raffe is hot, sexy, mysterious, brooding, distant but protective. And yes all the readers are smitten with him! Oh yes I forgot: he is an angel.
“It is not the gentle kiss of a couple on a first date, nor is it the kiss of a man driven by simple lust. He kisses me with the desperation of a dying man who believes the magic of eternal life is in this kiss.”
― Susan Ee, Angelfall
Lucas werewolf from the series Shadow Falls by CC Hunter
Mysterious, muscled, sexy he’s loved Kylie since he was a little kid. He is very creative to get flowers for his beloved as you can see in the quote below:
“Hey Beautiful,’ said a familiar male voice. She opened her eyes. Lucas knelt beside her bed, holding a bouquet of roses in his hands. She sat up and saw more roses all around the room. ‘What sis you do, rob a florist?’
He gave her his bad-boy grin, and Kylie felt her heart melt just a little. ‘No, but let me just say that my grandmother is going to be really pissed when she sees her garden in the morning.”
― C.C. Hunter, Taken at Dusk
Adult PNR BBF
Ryder from The Fae Chronicles by Amelia Hutchins
He is a fey and even better he is King of the Horde.
I bet few of you have read this series but it really is a kickass one! Ryder is the definition of super HAWT and commending. He exudes raw sex appeal. When he enters a room all you’ll want to do is let him rip your clothes of and please him. Pinky promise! He is powerful and very determined to get his girl.
One of my favorite quotes:
“I’m the fucking Horde King, I don’t woo.”
“Woo her,” Ristan continues.
“I don’t woo.”
“Woo,” he repeats.
“I’m not the kind of man to woo anyone. I can make her scream my name to the rafters, isn’t that enough wooing?”
“Woo,” Ristan smirks, which only served to irritate me more.
“Woo,” I grind out on an exhale.
“Yes, woo,” he says, already turning to walk away. I watch his shoulders quake with laughter.
“Woo,” I growl.
“Woo!” He says over his shaking shoulders.
“Fuck me,” I shake my head.
“No thanks, not my type…”
Zsadist in the Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward
OK all vampires from this series are sexy as hell and powerful but there was something special about Zsadist that broke my heart. Maybe because he was the most broken and tortured of the bunch?
As he said himself:” “I’m not broken, I’m ruined. Do you understand the difference? With broken maybe you can fix things. Ruined? All you can do is wait to bury me.”
Favorite swoony quote:
“I was dead until you found me, though I breathed. I was sightless, though I could see. And then you came…and I was awakened.”
Dorian Skoto from Dark Light series by SL Jennings
See what the heroine thinks of him “Gabriella knew it was all too good to be true. The way his touch radiated electricity right to her core, the way his ice blue eyes somehow made panties drop involuntarily, how his sexy half-smile crumbled the barriers around her heart…Dorian was extraordinary in every way.”
Oh and upon being a sexy beast he is a real powerful badass:
“Hell no. Absolutely not. I am a Skotos. We are to be feared. We never back down or run away from anything. Ever.”
― S.L. Jennings, The Dark Prince
Soo I could name many more book boyfriends but I choose *insert drum roll*
In YA: Rhysand through and through!
In Adult: Ryder my Horde King.
Note that both are fairy. It must be all the fairytales that I’ve read as a kid 😉
And you who are your favorite PNR Book Boyfriends?
