Day 27 already and Bex at Night Owl Reader Romance and the girls at Collector of Book Boyfriends want a sweet boy!


I don’t know you but when I read sweet boy I focus on boy. Not that I’m a craddle robber don’t worry I don’t mean that kind of boy! But more like a late teenager/young adult. Someone around 17 or 18. Of course he would be the book boyfriend of the teenage me not the MILF. Did I say MILF *cough*? 😀 

Ok as this is going out of control I will introduce you to the sweet boy of my choice.

I did not really like the book (unpopular opinion) but I did adored this boy.

Jonah from When We Collided by Emery Lord


Jonah is one of these characters you can’t help rooting for. He is seventeen and bearing the weight of the world on his shoulders. Since his father’s death he is taking care of the three younger in the family taking turn with his two other siblings. He also works at his dad’s restaurant trying to keep it afloat and having money running in the family. His mom is buried under grief and rarely leaves her room leaving the older kids to care for the younger ones.

Jonah is aged before his time. He is an incredibly strong character always thinking about his siblings before his own needs. A caretaker, a protector he often forgets his own wants and needs.

Jonah will also be there for Vivi, through and through.

He is not a quiter.

If that’s not a sweet boy I don’t know who is?


Favorite quote to show you how sweet he is:

“Viv, I just made you wild-caught Alaskan salmon baked with mango chutney, on a bed of garlic red potatoes and arugula. While talking about an Audrey Hepburn movie. I think you are maybe falling in love with me.”
Emery Lord, When We Collided


For those interested here is the synopsis

We are seventeen and shattered and still dancing. We have messy, throbbing hearts, and we are stronger than anyone could ever know…

Jonah never thought a girl like Vivi would come along.

Vivi didn’t know Jonah would light up her world.

Neither of them expected a summer like this…a summer that would rewrite their futures.

In an unflinching story about new love, old wounds, and forces beyond our control, two teens find that when you collide with the right person at just the right time, it will change you forever.
