Hey all, and welcome to the first installment of My Book Boyfriend, a weekly meme hosted by Missie over at The Unread Reader. If you'd like to play along, it's simple! Just share one of your latest literary crushes; you know, give his stats, a picture of what you think he might look like, and some of his quotes that make you melt into a heap on your couch, chair, or wherever you read. :) For more details, check out the rules, then get your boyfriend posted! :)
My Book Boyfriend comes from Tahereh Mafi's Shatter Me. He's strong, lean, and completely devoted...and the fact that he's a man in uniform can't hurt, either! :) He's Adam Kent!
Adam Kent Description:
- He's in The Reestablishment's army
- He has been searching for Juliette since she disappeared from their school in 9th grade
- He's fast, built, and more than capable of surviving
- He has a little brother, whom he loves more than anything - which is also why he's hiding him from The Reestablishment
- He has blue, blue eyes
- He can touch Juliette, something she's never experienced before!
"That's why you'll never be what Warner wants you to be."
I'm staring at a point in the blackness, my mind tortured by possibilities. "How can you be sure?"
His lips are so close to mine. "Because you still give a damn about the world."
"I had to find you," he whispers. "I asked around everywhere and no one had answers. The world kept falling apart. I had to take care of James and I had to find a way to live and I didn't know if joining the army would help but I never forgot about you. I always hoped," he falters, "that one day I would see you again."
"...You should have a choice. You should always have a choice. And it's your choice if you want to be with me."
I look up.
He's shaking his head. "It's sexy as hell."
He steps forward. Slips me into his arms.
"I look like a gymnast," I mumble.
"No," he whispers, hot hot hot against my lips. "You look like a superhero."
Helloooooooooo Adam! Go ahead, admit it, you'd love to have a strong guy like that declare his love for you, too! My model today is Johannes. He just looked perfect for Adam, and well, who wouldn't wanna wash some clothes on those abs? Hah! :)
Who's your book boyfriend this week? Leave a link to yours and we'll share!
