#BookBoyfriendsChallenge Day 29
Oh my God! It’s already day 29 in the BookBoyfriendsChallenge!
Once again I swear I’M NOT A COUGAR! But the ladies at Night Owl Romance Read and Collector of Book Boyfriends made me choose a teen. Not my fault I swear!!!!
Ok ok I confess I read a lot of YA! I would say half YA and half NA/adults so again it will be a very hard choice as I’ve collected teen book boyfriends.
So a teen must be under 18 (or barely 18) but above …theoretically 12 but I’m not inspired at all by kids so let’s say from 16/17 to 18 shall we?
Here I have a collection of teen bookboyfriends either in contemporary reads either in fantasy/PNR stories so I’ll go once again with contenders and one winner.
Daemon from the Lux Series by Jennifer L Aermentrout
Daemon is the smoking hot Alien. Douche in the beginning very cocky he’ll become charming and very protective by the end. And of course he is the best duh!
Favorite quote to describe his attitude:
“Why are you such an ass?” The words came out before I could think twice.
“Everyone has to excel at something, right?”
“Well, you’re doing a great job.”
Jace Herondale/Wayland from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
I speak here of the Jace in the book NOT the Jace in the movie or the series. Sorry Ladies and Gents but they paled in comparison to my imaginary Jace.
Here is another cocky teenager. I guess he is entitled being the most gifted Shadowhunter yada, yada…
Favorite quote to describe Jace:
“Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?’
Jace said, “Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself.”
…”At least,” she said, “you don’t have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland.”
“Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting.”
Reed Royal from The Royals series by Erin Watt
Truly you could take all the Royals boys as they are book boyfriend material.
Let’s say that I loved Reed as he is very possessive and protective…after being a douchebag with Ella of course.
“I was having the best dream,” I mumble as he curls his body around my back.
“What was it?” he says roughly.
“That you showed up in my bedroom and held me all night long.”
“I like that dream,” he whispers in my ear and then he does just that—holds me until I fall asleep.
Levi Myers in Art & Soul by Brittainy C Cherry
Levi is one of my favorite male characters in all the books I’ve read so far. He is the like of Kyland and Archer (Mia Sheridan), so pure and beautiful inside out.
He is “apart”, an oddity, an oxymoron would tell you this words wizard and violin player. Oxymoron, a word that ” in the end means nothing as both parts of an oxymoron kind of cancel each other.”
Levi, the charming odd boy everyone loves, even the teachers. Levi, with the bright smile but so sad inside.
Levi, everything he does is to help someone, shouldering his mom’s, his dad’s, Aria’s burden. But he is so tired inside I was aching for him.
”I was tired of everything, of faking that I was happy at school. I was tired of worrying about if Mom was going to hurt herself because I left her. I was tired of wondering if I would wake up one day and Dad wouldn’t be here anymore. I was tired of my nightmare of a life, and I just wanted to wake up from it all.”
My winner is… Mattew Rohan in Win Some Lose Some by Shay Savage
Matthew is eighteen and on the mild side of autism spectrum. He suffers from Asperger syndrome. Orphaned for one year, he lives alone his last year of high school. His uncle Travis and aunt Bethany wanted him to come live with them but he is determined to make it on his own.
He has no real friends as it’s not easy for him to connect with people, to read emotions and say the appropriate things. He can’t look people in the eyes. He can shut down and silence people around him when he feels threatened, out of control. Not many social skills indeed.
Now he also is very smart, considerate, has an insanely hot body and would confess his undying love for cake, especially the chocolate variety.
Sorry this is long but that book made me pee my pants!
Here is one of these quotes when his aunt is trying to teach him how to ask his girl out:
”Do you remember when you couldn’t order pizza over the phone? Can you do that now?” “Yes but I have to work up to it a little”. “So we’ll work on getting you ready to ask Mayra out the same way we worked on ordering pizza. I’ll be Mayra and you ask me. We’ll keep doing it until you think you got it.” “But…” I hesitated. “What is it?” “But the pizza place never says no!”
And you who is your favorite teen book boyfriend?
Thank you for reading.
