Hosted by Rachel from Fiktshun, Lisa from A Life Bound By Books, Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic, Jaime from Two Chicks on Books and Mindy from Magical Urban Fantasy Reads

Today is always my favorite day! Book Boyfriends!
So many of my favorites that I have listed for the past 3 years had their series end this year so I am sad that this is the last time I will be able to feature them.
Thursday, December 26th – Best Book Boyfriends of 2013 (MUST be from a book released in 2013 and from a book you’ve READ in 2013)

My one and only
Adrian Ivashkov

 "Sydney spent a lot of time on my bed these days.
Unfortunately, it wasn't with me."

 "I won’t lie. Walking into a room and seeing your girlfriend reading a baby-name book can kind of make your heart stop.
“I’m no expert,” I began, choosing my words carefully. “Well—actually, I am. And I’m pretty sure there are certain things we have to do before you need to be reading that."

The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines, #4)

Jem Carstairs

  "His eyes went soft and silver as she spoke. “Zhe shi jie shang, wo shi zui ai ne de,” he whispered.
She understood it. In all the world, you are what I love the most."

 "Did you like it?" he said. "I could have given, but I wanted it to be something that was wholly yours. That no one else would hear or own. And I am not good with words, so I wrote how I felt about you in music." He paused. "Did you like it?"

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)

Tod Hudson

 "Have I ever told you how sexy your brain is?"
"Finally! A man who wants me for my brain."
"I want all of you. Each individual part and the sum of them all. I want you for everything you are and everything you will ever be. I will never have enough of you, because there's no such thing." He stared right into my eyes, and I couldn't have looked away if I'd wanted to. I was trapped, and never in my life had I been so happy to be caught. "I will never let you go again."

 "Do you really think this is appropriate on school grounds?"
"Nope." I wrapped my arms around his neck. "And I happen to know there isn't an appropriate thought running through your head right now."
"Or any other time." Tod pulled me close and held me so tight my ribs almost hut, but I didn't want him to let go. Ever.

With All My Soul (Soul Screamers, #7)

Andrew Parrish

 "You’re the world to me,” I whisper onto
her lips. “I hope you never forget that.”
“I’ll never forget,” she whispers back.. “But if I ever do, for
whatever reason, I hope you’ll always find a way to remind me.”

"I promise to love you forever in this life and wherever we go in the afterlife, because I know I can't go on in any life unless you're in it too."

The Edge of Always (The Edge of Never, #2)

I know many love Aidan but Seth is so much more fun. He's had some great lines throughout the series.

"You know what?” His breath was warm against my cheek. “There are a lot of stupid things to do, but I really want to do the stupidest thing possible.”
“What’s that?”
“I want to kiss you."

 He followed me around the edge of the bed. "I've been told my lips can make a girl forget just about anything. You should try it out."

Sentinel (Covenant, #5)

& Sturmhond

  "The Darkling will hunt you for the rest of your days."
"Then you and I will have something in common, won't we? Besides, I like to have powerful enemies. Makes me feel important."
Mal crossed his arms and considered the privateer. "I can't decide if you're crazy or stupid."
"I have so many good qualities," Sturmhond said. "It can be hard to choose."

 "And there's no way I'm leaving you alone with Prince Perfect."
"So you don't trust me to resist his charms?"
"I don't even trust myself. I've never seen anyone work a crowd the way he does. I'm pretty sure the rocks and trees are getting ready to swear fealty to him."

"I have loved you all my life, Mal," I whispered through my tears. "There is no end to our story." 

Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)


"You're still beautiful and dangerous and incredible, and I'll keep telling you that for as long as it takes you to believe it. But right now, all I want to do is kiss you, except I'm terrified that if I try you might throw me off this balcony."

"Only death will take me away from you, vampire girl," he whispered. "And even then, I'll watch over you from wherever I end up." 

The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden, #2)


"A slow smile spread across his lips, and he threaded his fingers through mine. "I can see why I like you."

 "As long as I know this" - he lifted our joined hands - "is mine to hold, I'll wait for you forever."

Tremble (Denazen, #3)

Tucker Avery

"How did you do that?”
I shrug. “I click my heels three times and say, ‘There’s no place like home.’”
“Uh-huh. So … you think this is your home? My barn? His tone is playful, but the look he’s giving me is dead serious. A question.
“Haven’t you guessed by now?” I say, my heart hammering. “My home is you."

 "What we have is divine. It's beautiful and good and right. I feel it..." He presses his his hand to his chest, over his heart. "I feel it all the time. You're in here, part of me. You're what I go to bed thinking about and what I wake up to in the morning."

Boundless (Unearthly, #3)


"I want a years-worth of seconds and minutes with you. I want a decade's worth of hours, so many that I can't add them up."

 "Did you think you could stop me? I'll burn the world down to save her."

 "I want to marry you because I'm in love with you, Kat. I will always be in love with you. That's not going to change today or two weeks from now. I will be just as in love with you in twenty years as I am today."

Origin (Lux, #4)


"It's very real. It's also sturdy. You can ride it if you want."
I laughed. "The only bird I'm riding is you."
He chuckled. "I love when you talk dirty."

"A reminder?"
"That you will always come first. The Society, the crown, none of that matters as much as you do."

Found (The Crescent Chronicles, #3)

Leave links to your lists!


  1. I love that you added quotes from the books! I wish I'd thought of doing that. Love so many of these guys omg. Both Seth and Aiden, and Will and Jem :)
    Great list xx

    Come check out my list!

  2. It's either Mal or the Darkling - but Siege and Storm is EVERYWHERE today! I liked Shadow and Bone, but I have not read Siege and Storm (though I have a copy). I feel like I'm one step ahead and two steps behind, with 2013 novels! D:

    Happy holidays!

    Check out my Top Ten post!

  3. ADRIAN! Love him! And Tucker even though he hardly came out in the last book. Need to catch up on the Lux books.

  4. YES ADRIAN!!!!! Love your list especially Tod, Strumhond, Kale, and Daemon :)

    Jaime @ Two Chicks On Books

  5. Happy holidays Jen!! :) And your list is made of awesome ;) ;) <3 xx

  6. Seth, love to hate him for sure! He did redeem himself a bit. Daemon, who doesn't love him? And Andrew Parrish was quite swoony! Great list!

  7. Tod and Daemon! Love both of them so much! And I love to hate Seth! He is fun, even though he is a pain lol. Love the list!

    Teresa @ Readers Live A Thousand Lives

  8. 3/4 of these are of books I'm dying to read. The rest I love them.

  9. Adrian, Daemon, and Tucker have stolen my heart as well. Great post! I'll have to check out a few of these books. Some are on my TBR and others I've never heard of.

  10. Adrian is also my book boyfriend...he´s the BEST!! And Jem and Zeke made my list too.
    My Top Ten Book Boyfriends

  11. We have a few bb's in common :) I adore Adrian, Aiden, Daemon, Tucker & Kale <3

    I'm definitely going to have to check out the other books you have listed!

    Sharon - Obsession with Books

  12. Before I opened this post up I just knew I'd see Jem and Tucker! I know how much you love those boys. :) Mal and Sturmhond are just, perfect too. And the rest I have yet to meet!

  13. Be still my heart at those quotes! :) Somehow I forgot Jem when I was making my list! He's just the sweetest. Oh my gosh, I've still yet to read Boundless because of how afraid I am of how it's going to end. Isn't that awful? I just love Tucker so much so if she ends up with Christian it might ruin the whole series for me, but I won't read spoilers or anything because I don't want to know until I get there. Ugh. I'm just going to have to steel myself and read it, eh? GREAT list!!

    Rachel @ Paper Cuts

  14. As you've seen, I picked Will over Jem, but I adore Jem as well. You chose those quotes very well :) I've yet to meet Seth and Aidan though, but at least I own the first book in the series. Zeke is definitely a great guy! And though I wasn't such a big fan of Mal in Shadow and Bone, maybe I'll come around once I read Siege and Storm.
    Oh, and I wish I could've included Damon, but I haven't read Origin yet and Opal was released in 2012 *sigh*
    Thanks for stopping by :)

  15. I love Tod :D He's the only one on my list, but mostly because I still haven't met the rest :)

  16. I'll give you that. Seth has had some great lines. And he's a great character. I'm so happy he's getting his own series! Thanks for stopping by earlier :)

    Tiffany @ A Nanny's Literary Musings

  17. I love Mal (he was on my last year's list)! He's probably going to make me cry. Sturmhond was pretty awesome too! I haven't meet the other guys yet, but I have a few of those series on my TBR so hopefully not too much longer haha. Great list! Thanks for sharing.

  18. I love Adrian and I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't read his series yet but during Vampire Academy, I was totally torn between him and Christian (for myself) lol.

    I like Zeke but I love Kanin. There's something about him that just makes me want him for myself. And KALE! OMG, I love him but I actually love Bryant more lol. And another one you're going to shake your head at is...while I love Tucker and everything (cause I really do), I loved Christian more lol!

    Thanks for stopping by!!!
