Summary
Would you die for the one you love?
Nixon Abandonato made his choice. And now he has to pay the price. Tracey is the love of his life, but being with him has made her a target of his family's enemies. The only way to keep Trace alive is convince the world she means nothing to him.

Mine by Katy Evans

First, I'd like to wish everyone a happy holiday season! A little late on Thanksgiving, but the sentiment is there.   Hoping everyone will take time to enjoy the holiday season and don't forget....Read!! Read!! Read!!
So, now, for Mine by Katy Evans. I must confess real life got in the way and it took me a little longer to finish Mine than it normally takes me to read a book with such a worthy book boyfriend. I can tell you, I automatically fell in love with Remington "Riptide" Tate the second he jumped out of the ring in Real and chased Brooke Dumas out of the ring to introduce himself to her.  The way he spoke to her.  That kiss?? Holy hell why couldn't that be me?
If you read Real, and who hasn't? You know the back story between Remy and Brooke. Mine takes their relationship to the next level.  Not to sound corny, but Katy Evans made Remy and Brooke's love totally, well, real.  They love each other so much, but it's not in that creepy obsessive love t…

The Weight of Words By Georgina Guthrie

Image
"All I can think about is what a mess I've been for the last few days without you.  If you want to step away -- temporarily, I'd hope -- I can't force you to change your mind.  But right now, I want to be with you more than ever."

As soon as I read the words, "If you liked Gabriel's Inferno, you'll love Georgina Guthrie's The Weight of Words". Then I saw That Sylvain Reynard recommended it, so I knew I had to read it.  I was so excited to find another book boyfriend. Another book boyfriend like Gabriel? What could be better?  Enter Daniel Grant, unbelievably gorgeous, smart, and sexy, or "schmexy" as Aubrey's friend Julie calls him.
Aubrey Price is a young, beautiful woman in her last year at the University of Toronto. She's the lucky girl to win Daniel's attention. Only guess what? Daniel Grant is Aubrey's teaching assistant in her Studies in Shakespeare class and the son of Aubrey's on campus boss Victoria Colle…

Broken by Ryanne Anthony (The M Series)

Ok so I know I usually pick out a book boyfriend, but this book had so many delicious men, I thought I'd give it a whirl. Broken is a story of two families, The Cannon family and the Harvey family. Through marriage and friendship these two families have merged to become one super family. They've come together one Saturday afternoon for a marathon therapy session. It seems there's a secret that finally needs to come out into the open. 

The story begins in the office of Victoria Fields, a therapist with a few secrets of her own I might add. It seems Amanda Cannon, wife of Joshua Cannon, the youngest Cannon brother, has been seeing Victoria as a patient. They've brought the whole family in for this session to finally put out in the open the mess their marriage has become. 

One interesting thing about this book, you get to meet all the Cannons and all the Harveys. You get to know a little bit about them and their secrets. This allows author Ryanne Anthony to set up the backg…

Simple Perfection Abbi Glines

"In all her twisted perfection, she had made me fall helplessly in love with her" Woods Kerrington
It's no secret that Abbi Glines is one of my favorite New Adult authors. I have read all of her series and most of her books more than one time. Two of my favorite book boyfriends are Beau Vincent and Rush Finlay. And yes I have crushes on, well most of her male characters. With that being said, yes, Woods Kerrington of Simple Perfection is completely swoon worthy. 

Simple Perfection starts off at the funeral of Woods father, who died of a heart attack at the end of Twisted Perfection.  Woods is upset his dad died, but can't find it in his heart to forgive, because of all the pain his dad caused Della. You remember her. Woods one night stand who turned into the love of his life.  Woods mom, is the mother from hell. Even in mourning, she still has the ability to be a horrible bitter woman who tries to sabotage her son. Through it all Woods still tells mom he loves her and …

Unafraid Melody Grace

" You're going to feel me for days," he whispers, "I'm going to own you, every part of you. Even your heart."
     "Especially your heart." 
Hunter to Brittany in Unafraid

So my first thought for this next post was to go back to my girl Abbi Glines. I was so ready to share Rush Finlay. Then my book buddy (you know who you are 😊) said, "You have to read Unafraid by Melody Grace! Hunter is amazing!" Well I downloaded the book as soon as I left her and spent the rest of my night with Hunter Covington. And trust me, he  was well worth the lack of sleep. 

     The book is a stand alone, but Brittany Ray is a character from Untouched and Unbroken, which are novels about her brother Emerson (Also both great reads. And yes Emerson is a total book boyfriend). Brittany is definitely a broken character. She's had a sucky childhood. Dad that didn't hang around. Mom who found drugs and men more important than her children. As a result, Brit…

Welcome to Best Book Boyfriends

I've been a reader for as long as I can remember. I read early as a child and always above my grade level. As an adult reading is what relaxes me. I have become hooked on the newest genre of reading...NA or New Adult reading. It's a step up from Young Adult. Older characters, sexier story lines, women pretty much taking what they want. A good girls fantasy come true. I have always loved bad boys and so when I read E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey of course Christian became my first book boyfriend. I spent many night with Mr. Grey, up until the early morning hours, enjoying Christian's kinky fuckery. Next came Sylvia Day's Gideon Cross in Bared to You, and I was hooked.

     When I thought about blogging books were the one idea I kept coming back to. Authors have Facebook and Twitter accounts. There are Twitter sites dedicated to Role Play for book characters. So reviewing books and giving my special book boyfriend seal of approval seemed like a logical choice.
