Top 10 of 2015 Day 4- Best Book Boyfriends of 2015!


Merry Christmas Eve!!!!! Today’s post is a long one so bear with me! It’s Best Book Boyfriends of 2015 (MUST be from a book released in 2015 and from a book you've READ in 2015)

And make sure to stop by my co-hosts sites Fiktshun, Tales of a Ravenous Reader, and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads for their lists! Oh and make sure to sign up with the linky to share your lists! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway for some awesome prizes below!

This is by far one of the hardest categories for me! There’s so many swoon-worthy guys!!! There are no honorable mentions because my post would have been a mile long but I wish I could have added more! I’m not doing covers for this post I’m sharing quotes and scenes from the books!

1. Valek from SHADOW STUDY by Maria V. Snyder. You do not know how happy I am to be able to add him to this list! He is my #1 all time favorite book boyfriend and with more Study books out expect him to be #1 on my list for the next few years!

“Yelena?”

“Hmm?”

“I’d like you to stay with me while we figure out how to unblock your magic. We’re stronger together.”

“All right.”

He laughed. “I thought I’d have more of a fight.”

“I’m too tired to argue.”

“Then I should take advantage of the situation.”

I cracked one eye open. “And?”


“I’d like you to stay with me forever.” 


2. Khalid from THE WRATH & THE DAWN by Renee Ahdieh. I decided to share a few small scenes since I couldn't pick just one lol.

“What are you doing to me, you plague of a girl?” he whispered.

“If I’m a plague, then you should keep your distance, unless you plan on being destroyed.” The weapons still in her grasp, she shoved against his chest.

“No.” His hands dropped to her waist. “Destroy me.” 

Shazi, 

I prefer the color blue to any other. The scent of lilacs in your hair is a source of constant torment. I despise figs. Lastly, I will never forget, all the days of my life, the memories of last night—

For nothing, not the sun, not the rain, not even the brightest star in the darkest sky, could begin to compare to the wonder of you.


Khalid.”


3. Paul Markov  from TEN THOUSAND SKIES ABOVE YOU by Claudia Gray. He will always be in my heart and he will always be on my top 10 list. I chose a small scene but if you've read the books you know how much Paul has been thorough and how hard it was for him to tell Marguerite he loved her.

Paul:“I love you.”

Marguerite:“And I love you. In any world, any universe.”

Paul:“This world is enough.”


4. Prince Magnus from FROZEN TIDES by Morgan Rhodes. 

“She was his princess. No. She was his goddess. With her golden skin and golden hair. She was his light. His life. His everything.


He loved her more than anything else in this world.” 


5. Gryphon from NAMELESS by Jennifer Jenkins.

Gryphon spent most of his watch that night watching Zo as she slept with one arm around Tess and the other around Joshua,  as if they were her baby chicks. as if they were her baby chicks. He wondered what it would be like to have someone care for him with the passion that Eva cared for Stone. In the last few years, whenever he imagined belonging to a woman he never managed to picture the girl’s face. 

Now, even when he fought the tendency, he always saw Zo. It was part of the reason he could never travel to the Allies. He’d rather rip out his eyes than watch Zo and Gabe share their lives together. 

Gryphon wasn’t quite sure when it happened, but somewhere in the trauma of the last two days he’d realized that he’d never really be happy without her. It was an awful feeling that gnawed at his gut and threatened all reason. Like discovering you’d lost your arm in battle. Living with the memory of what it was like to have that arm, and reminded every day of the loss. 

Gryphon the deserter, son of Troy the deserter, was in love with a Wolf. A fitting end to the tragedy that was his life.


6. Dragon/Sarkan from UPROOTED by Naomi Novik. There's one scene I realllllly want to share but it would be too spoilery so I leave you with this.

“You intolerable lunatic," he snarled at me, and then he caught my face between his hands and kissed me.” 


7. Ezra Mason from ILLUMINAE by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

 “since i will not send this, i also feel it is my duty to inform you that almost six months on I think I still love you and that makes me sad becaue love shouldn’t feel this way. is like getting kicked in the stomach every time i think of you and it makes me want to roll my face across this keyboardbiu;///ubEWdcfhugiov’byhi;.//////-=‘-0i9juh8ygtfdcsaazs34defg7uefg7u8hi9o0p8hi9o0p-[[09ju8dcsaazs34d9o0p-[[09.” 


8. Rafe from HEART OF BETRAYAL by Mary e. Pearson. I'm sharing a few small scenes.

“It was worth it, Lia,” He said. “Every mile, every day. I’d do it all again. I’d chase you across three continents if that’s what it took to be with you.” 

“But you’re everything I want. Remember that. I love you, Lia. Not a title. And not because a piece of paper says I should. Because I do.” 

“And I began walking. A thousand miles, or two, I would carry her all the way to Dalbreck if I had to. No one would pry her from my arms again.” 

“I’m not the farmer I claimed to be, but I hope I can make you fall in love with me again, this time as a prince, one day at a time. We’ve had a terrible start—it doesn’t mean we can’t have a better ending.” 


9. Gideon from THE ARTISANS by Julie Reece.

“You’re making this harder, Gideon. Just go.” 

“No. Not until you hear me out.” When he takes my hand, his eyes glint with careful determination. He won’t be denied his chance to speak, and I can’t refuse him anymore. I’m caught up in whatever spell he’s casting. 

He leads me to the worn, pleather sofa in Maggie’s living room. The springs creak under his weight, and then mine, as he eases us onto the cushions. I’m inching away until he leans over me and I’m on my back. His face inches from mine, emits the scent of black licorice, salt, and musk. 

“Listen to me, please.” Three fingers run over my mouth, causing every moth in my belly to twitch. “You’re worth fighting for, Rae. And though you won’t admit it, I know you love me. I see it in the way you look at me, the things you say and do. That’s why I won’t stop until you’re mine.” The fire, always smoldering beneath the surface of his gaze, ignites, underlining the intensity of each word he speaks. “Do you think you can hide from me? Push me away; hurt me until I give up on you? ‘Quit’ is not in my vocabulary.” 

I cut my eyes away. “You don’t get it, Gideon.” 

With his fingers pressing into my shoulders, he shakes me once, forcing me to look up. “Don’t I? You’re afraid. Terrified of what love may cost you, and I understand. I’ve lost people, too, but we belong together. Can’t you feel that?” The heat in his gaze blasts through to my soul. “You brought me back from the dead, gave life where there was nothing but ash and decay. Trust me to do the same for you. I love you, Raven. You’re worth loving, and I’m exactly the man to prove it to you.” 


10. Black Knife from THE ORPHAN QUEEN by Jodi Meadows. I'd put his real name but just in case someone hasn't read the book I don't want to spoil the surprise. Sharing a couple small scenes here too.

“Taking me out to robberies, bar fights, and wraith houses isn't enough for you anymore? I though we were happy."


"Only the best for you, my lady.” 

I narrowed my eyes. I" don't trust you."

"I don't trust you,either."

So we don't move. 

"Ever? "He met my eyes again,and searched me.
