From Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel

I love the UK cover. 
And it explains Bram perfectly, tall, dark, and dead.
He may be a zombie, pale, scars all over, but he is super sweet and hot!
 His eyes are clouded over but he is so very tall, wears size 14 shoe, and rocks his military uniform well.

 

 "This time I let myself fully enjoy it-the fact that I had already come to care for her and that she obviously cared for me. The fact that I could touch her and she wouldn't rebuff me. The fact that she sought me out. It was the simplest, purest thing I've ever experienced."


 

"I ran this through my "girl talk" translator and said, "I could eat him, if either of you'd like. Seems like it might be the easiest thing to do." 

 

 "The fact that she made this beeline for me both warmed my soul and made me want to turn around, walk out the door, and find a cliff to fling myself off of." 

 

"No, not really. But …” Okay, I couldn’t help but gloat a little. “She likes me.” 
Samedi didn’t even look at me. “Well of course, you’ve had that bloody uniform on all day. I was half ready to tell you how much I liked you." 

 


 "Returning my voice to a conversational level, I called back, “Nora, I’m not attempting to embarrass you or single you out. I know you’re capable. But stay behind Chas, okay? You die, you die permanently, and for various reasons that we’ve already gotten angsty about together, I don’t want that to happen.”
“Okay, okay,” she sighed.
“Angsty?” Chas asked. “Ooh! Later, details!”
“Yes, later.” With that, I waved the team forward." 


 

 I really sucked at this whole "I am very attracted to you and would like to demonstrate this to you via attention and creative uses of my disposable income" thing.

 

I chose Brandon Routh for Bram. 
He is actually exactly as I picture Bram, tall, dark, and a bit pale but very sexy!

  1. Wow! I love the UK cover so much more than the US cover!!! Gah!

    I really need to finish reading this book, I got about halfway through and stopped reading it for another book and just never picked it back up. I do love Bram though. Love the quotes!

  2. Wow! I love Bram, I remember reading this last year and I couldn't picture a good Bram, but Brandon Routh comes very close! Awesome pick. Reading those quotes makes me want to read it again, and I can't wait for book 2!

  3. I have this on my TBR list, but I think I might have to push it up a little more just to experience Bram sooner rather than later. :)

  7. Oooh this guy has that very smoldering look about him. Which is funny since he's a zombie. Your guy sounds a bit humorous.

  8. I love the UK cover,too! I saw it a few days ago and I like it more than the US cover. I haven't read the book yet but the guy you chose does remind me of the guy on the cover.

  11. Ha! Brandon Routh totally looks like the cover model. Spot on. And, whatever happened to that actor? I need to look him up and check. LOL

    I never thought I could fall for a zombie, but you've changed my mind. Bram sounds yummy! And he is into girls for their brains. That is a refreshing change. :)

  13. I've had this book in my TBR pile since being told Bram is MBB material - he certainly seems to be!

  14. Uhmmm...yeah. Brandon Routh is hot. I've liked him since his days on One Life to Live. I've had Dearly, Departed on my bookshelf for quite a while now. But with him as a visual for Bram, I must bump it WAY up.
    Thanks for sharing!

  17. Oh my gosh, I love Bram so much too!!! <3 He had to be about the SWEETEST zombie to ever walk the earth, and just like you, I really like that UK cover and the way it shows his zombie paleness, but still makes him endearing! A man in uniform will always get the girls. ;)

    Awesome pick for your book boyfriend, Jennifer! :) Love those pictures too!
