From the My Blood Approves series by Amanda Hocking

My Blood Approves (My Blood Ap...   Fate (My Blood Approves, #2)   Flutter (My Blood Approves, #3...   Wisdom (My Blood Approves, #4)

A little bit about Jack
He is a vampire and died at 24.
Blonde hair, blue eyes, likes his dickies shorts and converse shoes.
He has a douchenozzle for a brother.
He loves Alice but she is bonded to Peter the douche.
But he will never give up on her.
He lives with his vampire family, Ezra, Mae, and Peter.
Loves guitar hero, movies, and concerts.

"Can't you just bite me and make this stop?"
"Alice!" Jack lamented. "He is my brother! And you are his! You belong to Peter, not me!"

"Everyone has free will." He leaned in a little closer to me, looking at me earnestly. "Even you."
"You really think so?"
"I have to."

"I don't know what went wrong. I don't know why your blood is for him, but it's a mistake! Okay? You're not supposed to be for him!"

"In case you haven't noticed, I'm a lover not a fighter."


"He's going to kill you. I want to so bad, but he would kill you."
"So? It would be worth it. I want you to, and I don't are what the cost."
I was at the edge of the bed, and he ran back over to me, wrapping his arms so tightly around me that I couldn't breathe. Oxygen didn't feel much like a necessity anymore. All that mattered was the way his lips felt pressed against mine. He kissed me so hard that my lip sprung fresh blood, and he moaned desperately. My fingers dug into his hair and I waited for him to bite me.

 "I'm not all you need, and I don't even want to be. I just want to love you, for the rest of my life, and as long as you let me do that, we'll be okay." 


 "What's your angle?" I asked, trying to sound more playful than demanding.
"Isosceles," Jack quipped." 

"You could kill me, Alice, he looked at me seriously. That's how much you mean to me. As foolish and masochistic as that makes me, you are so much to me that even if it destroys me to be with you, I'll be with you!"  


"But you're the hardest thing I've ever done, and you're also the best. So... I think that's the moral of the story here. Anything worth having is worth fighting for."  

"Wow," Jack laughed tiredly again. "You maybe not know this, but you are the single most amazing person I have ever met, and I am crazy in love with you."


 "I loved Jack because of every little thing about him. The way he laughed, the way he made me smile, the way he'd stay up until nine in the morning watching zombie movies he'd seen a hundred times, and the way he could never hold a grudge. I loved him because I loved him, not because it was fate or destiny or in my blood, We had chosen each other, and that felt more powerful and more magical."

I always wanted to do a book boyfriend post about Jack but could never think of someone to play him. I remember a blog entry by Amanda Hocking where she talks about her dream cast but she never could think of a Jack either. An anonymous commenter suggested Thad Luckinbill so I went with him. The post is HERE


  1. WHY Have I not seen Thad Luckinbill before?? He is SO effing gorgeous I'm having hot flashes even though it's like 40 degrees in my office right now lol.

    Love the quotes! I'll have to give this series a try when I get the chance!

  2. Woooow this guy is fabulous! I totally love the quotes you've chose!! And I think I should pick this serie up :)

  3. I really enjoy Amanda's books, but I haven't read this one. Jack sounds amazing and the situation he and Alice are in sounds crazy! Thad is definitely a hottie...I'll have to put him in my queue for models. Yummy!

    Thanks for sharing!!!

  5. Oh noes. He's in love with his brother's bonded? Those are great quotes. I'm liking Jack, especially because he's a vampire. I love vamps, so I'm gonna add him to my list. And I think Thad is so cute.

  6. This series has been on my TBR List, and you're quotes and of course description of jack and you're excellent choice of Thad playing him definitely makes me want to read this series thank you! New Follower by the way!! My Book boyfriend link http://bookfanatic89.blogspot.com/2012/03/my-book-boyfriend-6.html

  7. I am a big fan of the book boyfriend meme but I don't take part because I am really bad at putting real people in the place of book characters. They all have their own look in my head :)

    This was a great choice. I love the quotes. I think I will have to move this series up my list....

  8. Ok, great pick and I do love Jack, but I love Peter too! did you read Letters to Elise? I really hope she finishes the series. I miss it!

  9. I LOVE Jack - he's so great! Those quotes make me want to go back and re-read all the books in this series. Great pictures too, he really makes a perfect Jack! :)
