Hi dear friends,
Today I am happy to take part once again to our yearly event “Meet Your Next Book Boyfriend” organized by Amy (Foxy Blogs) and Angelica (Collectors of Book Boyfriends).
This is just a bunch of bloggers friends who decided to pimp their book boyfriends (figuratively of course) and show you why they are so great!

This year I chose Rowan Whitethorn as my book boyfriend!
Yes that badass fae royalty from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas.
I know many pin for Rhysand (me included) but Rowan is in a class of his own!
I got back to the first meeting between Rowan and Celaena because I think you never have a second chance to make a first impression.
Here is Rowan as she saw him first:
“The man-male-down the alley was Fae.
A Fae male was prowling toward her. Pure, solid Fae.
Tall, broad-shouldered, every inch of him seemingly corded with muscle, he was a male blooded with power. He paused in a dusty shaft of sunlight, his silver hair gleaming.
As if his delicately pointed ears and slightly elongated canines weren’t enough to scare the living shit out of everyone in that alley, a wicked looking tattoo was etched down the left side of his harsh face, the whorls of black ink stark against sun kissed skin. (…) As she reached into her cloak for her own hidden dagger, she realized he might have been handsome were it not for the promise of violence in his pine-green eyes.(…) He moved with lethal grace and surety, scanning the alley as if he were walking onto a killing field.”
Now do tell me if your ovaries did just not explode!
But Rowan is much more than a lethal hot bod!
He is powerful but what I really loved about him was that, just like Rhysand, he never tried to boss Celeana. He never tried to stop her. He trained her hard. Indulging nothing. She had no free pass.
“Gods, he was brilliant. Cunning and wicked and brilliant.
Even when he beat the hell out of her. Every. Damn. Day.”
― Heir of Fire
He made her stronger. He made her even better, unstoppable.
Be cause he respected Celaena!
He was powerful beyond anything but he considered her as his equal if not more.
And I love a man who empowers his woman!
“I know you are tired, Fireheart. I know that the burden on your shoulders is more than anyone should endure. But we’ll face this together. Erawan, the Lock, all of it. We’ll face it together… We’ll face it together. And if the cost of it truly is you, then we’ll pay it together. As one soul in two bodies.”
― Kingdom of Ash
Then when something happened to Celaena (not going into specifics) he never stopped looking for her. He was relentless and dedicated.
Because she was HIS!
And a man protects his woman. Always.
And when a man tells you this, how can you not fall for him?
“I spent centuries wandering the world, from empires to kingdoms to wastelands, never settling, never stopping—not for one moment. I was always looking toward the horizon, always wondering what waited across the next ocean, over the next mountain. But I think … I think that whole time, all those centuries, I was just looking for you.”
― Queen of Shadows

So what do you think of my choice? Who would YOU choose as book boyfriend?
Thanks for reading!
Reading this totally makes me want to give the Throne of Glass series another try!
Then my job is done Tanya! 😉
I’m not fan of Rowan because I’m not into overprotective alpha males. I would prefer someone more like Rhysand.
Haaaaa Rhysand! He makes a really worthy boyfriend too Raven!
You never fail to make me laugh! Your pick is such a good one. Yummy Fae! Let’s see,,, who would I choose? Got it! X from The Hell Divers series. A bit rough around the edges but so alpha.
Oh Laura I also love Alpha!!!
Ha! Fae are almost a better option than humans. But I got Ren Wild yo!
Oh Ren! OK I also agree with you. Sandwich?
Ok, you’re right Sophie, my ovaries exploded, LOL!! Hubba Hubba…
I’m confused by the ‘comment’ section of the form. If I comment here, then where do I paste the link? You’ll have to forgive me, I have the ‘flu & my brain isn’t working properly 🙁
Hahahaha Kate don’t worry you just fill in the documents and paste there 😉
I remember how mad so many readers were about Rowen and Aelin, but I always shipped them. They were a great pairing. I never really thought she and Chaol were a good match. And, the things he did for Aelin during that series. That’s love.
Oh yes Sam, sigh … and swoon here 😉
He is a very good choice. Even though I was bitter about Chaol for a very long time and just wanted them to have a great bromance, there’s no denying that he was the PERFECT mate for Aelin. Loved them together and I loved how supportive he was!
That’s also what I loved! I think that’s also what SJM expects from the males in her family: to be supportive!
I’d like a Rhysand and Rowan sandwich!!!
Bwahahahahaha yes Caro me too!!!!
He is so hot! I definitely need to read this!
I still need to read these! My library is always out of hers.
I hope you’ll get to read them soon Megan!
Rowan! Why are the fae dudes so much more awesome than real men
Although I think that he might be too clingy for my taste I adore him.
Hahaha maybe he is more clingythan Rhysand indeed but I so love him!
