Book Tag: The Fictional Boyfriend Tag


This tag was originally created by Rachel (Rachel Reads) & Katie (The eBook Sphere) on Youtube. The concept is to pick a book boyfriend that could be described by the prompts below. I wasn't tagged to do this so I won't tag anyone either. Feel free to participate in this tag on your own blog!

The Most Romantic Boyfriend:
Beau from Beauty Dates The Beast (Midnight Liaisons #1) By Jessica Sims
It's been a few years since I've read this novel, but from what I can
remember this is the most a character has ever tried to be stereotypically
romantic (with flowers, chocolate, etc.).

(Linked to Goodreads)

The Dark & Moody Bad Boy With A Good Side:
Jax from The Eternal Balance Series By Jus Accardo
He's literally supposed to be evil, but chooses to be good.
It's can't get anymore dark or moody than that.

(Linked to my reviews)

The Paranormal Boyfriend:
Charles from the Alpha & Omega Series By Patricia Briggs
He's a werewolf who's caring, sweet and fierce. I also distinctly remember
him being half native american and having beautiful long dark hair. 

(Linked to my review)

The Boyfriend You Want To Tame:
Lyre from the Stone & Steel Series By Annette Marie
He's a secretive incubus that will do whatever he needs to do to
accomplish his goal and maybe save his friends in the end. 

(Linked to my review)

The Boy You Friend-Zoned:
Daemon from the Lux Series By Jennifer Armentrout.
He started off as the typical bad boy next door and eventually played
hot and cold for a while in the novel. I'd rather friend zone him and
not go through what Katy did.

(Linked to Goodreads)

Your Soul Mate:
Lucas/Landon from Easy By Tammara Webber
He's caring, kind and honest. He's somewhat flawed and has tattoos.

(Linked to my review)


The Boyfriend You Would Elope With:
Quarry from Fighting Solitude (On The Ropes #3) By Aly Martinez
He's a fighter in the ring, honest and kind. He's usually traveling for
his fights so I imagine that eloping would be very simple with him.

(Linked to my review)


The Boyfriend You Would Venture Anywhere With:
Gabriel from Chameleon By Kelly Oram
According to my review he's, "I have a serious soft spot for innocent, sweet,
down to earth, insecure guys. Gabriel is the incarnation of that guy. He was
so understanding and self sacrificing (...)".

(Linked to my review)


The Boyfriend You Want To Be Stranded
On A Deserted Island With:
Justus from the Mageri Series By Dannika Dark
He's a badass fighter and he's a termal (which in the Mageri universe
means he can control and project his body heat) so I won't be dying of hypothermia at least.

(Linked to my review)






The Most Badass Boyfriend:
Neil from Neil (The Uncompromising #2) By Sybil Bartel
He's ex danish military and overall badass. In his story he performs an
unrealistic and crazy maneuver to get out of danger. He's by far one of the
most dangerous book boyfriends I've had the pleasure of reading about.

The Power Of Book Covers: Where Good Girls Go To Die By Holly Renee


They say don't judge a book by it's movie...err...COVER. 
BUT they never said we couldn't PRAISE them.

This week's cover:

Where Good Girls Go To Die
By Holly Renee

It was a bad idea from the beginning.

He was my brother's best friend and the definition of unavailable.

But I didn't care.

I had loved him for as long as I could remember.

He was worth the risk. He was worth everything.

But then he broke my heart as easily as I fell for him. He watched me fall, spiraling out of control, and as I reached for him, he wasn't there to catch me.

So I ran.

Four years later, I never expected to see him again.

He was still my brother's best friend, and he was more unavailable than ever.

He looked every bit the bad boy I knew he was, covered in tattoos and a crooked smile.

Guarding my heart from him was top priority because Parker James was where good girls go to die.

Unfortunately for him, I wasn't a good girl anymore.

Book Review: Hart Of His By Annie Arcane

Hart Of His
(Cale & Mickey #2)
By Annie Arcane

Moving in with Mickey Hart has taught me a few lessons.

523 square feet is really f*cking small. Sharing a bathroom is the worst idea ever when you’re a damn paraplegic. Never lie, no matter what. And one more thing...

I'm madly in love with this girl.

Warning: Strong language, mature content, drama, and angst included. Shirt sold separately.

This is a novella.

My Review:

I wish this had been a full length novel because it ended too fast. I loved having the opportunity to glimpse into Cale's mind. I wasn't expecting to find what I found while in there. This was a beautiful novel. The author's writing style is amazing.

Being in Cale's head in no easy place. You could probably say that about most people, but he's had it especially tough when you consider he's a paraplegic and prideful to a fault. He's worked so hard to overcome his disability in so many ways that he isn't accustomed to having someone want to help him. His pride gets in his way and it makes his relationship with Mickey that much more difficult because she doesn't back down very easily. His insecurities about his disability and why Mickey is still around also get in his way very often. The way he deals with the consequences isn't always pretty or smart.

Mickey is more in the background in this novel but plays a part that's just as important. She's very stubborn but, unlike Cale, she'll back down when she deems the argument pointless. That only serves to irritate Cale even more, which ends with him saying something he'll regret. I liked how she dealt with his verbal assaults. At the end of the day, I think they both realize that their relationship is worth more than their stubbornness.

The ending was very sweet. The on and off relationship dynamic they have going on is starting to get annoying because this is the second book in this series in which this happens. I'd have hoped they'd have gotten over that triviality by now. Overall, this was a very eye-opening book and it does justice to the first book.

My Favorite Quotes:

"Everyone has a limit. Everyone has a breaking point. [...] He would much rather die than allow you to witness it. That's the problem with loving a superhero."

"One minute you're fine and the next minute... Everything just collapses around you. And the whole f*cking world caves in."

My Rating:


Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Characters I Would Crush On If I Were also a Fictional Character

Hiya My Little Predators!!

Welcome back to:
A weekly feature created By The Broke and the Bookish

I've switched up this weeks theme because I don't pay much
attention to specific foods that are mentioned in the books I read.

This Week's Topic:
Top Ten Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also A Fictional Character

* Titles that I have reviewed are linked to my review.
* Titles marked with a star are linked to Goodreads.




He's hard working, fights for what's right and loves unconditionally.
Anyone would be lucky to have a guy like him in their life.




- Christin Poe from the Crossbreed Series By Dannika Dark

Raunchy yet dry humor with an incredible accent and he's a vampire.
I'm still on that train. I wouldn't mind ;)



- Craeg from the Blood Kiss By J. R. Ward

Craeg is more of a loner, with amazing fighting skills. He almost comes
off as a knight in shining armor at the end of his novel and he's a vampire.





A powerful magic user and gorgeous incubus capable of making all your
desires come true. Tell me he's not worth your time. I dare you ;)





He's protective, fiercely loyal and would do anything for his mate. If I
qualify, you can bet I'm going to be crushing hard on him.






He's protective of those who earn his respect and is the stereotypical
tall, dark, handsome werewolf. 





I feel like a total pervert right about now, when you consider that his
story took place when he was probably around 16 or 17. It's been
almost a decade, but the author hasn't extended the series, so to me
he's still around that age. He's pretty good looking and protective.





Tall, brooding and silent is how I'd describe him. He has a special
power that has made his life less than charming in the long run, so
he's learned to keep to himself. I'd just love to get him out of his shell.






Protective, loyal and caring. He's on of the less risk taking and violent
types on this list, but he's such a sweetheart. 




He's stubborn to a fault when he puts his mind to something. He's a
mage with magical powers and drop dead beautiful.

Book Blitz: André By Sybil Bartel


André
(Uncompromising #3)
By Sybil Bartel 


Release Date: October 16th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

André

The Marines trained me to set my sights and wait for the shot. For eight years, I guarded my brothers and defended my country. Now I protect my clients. My personal security firm is the best in the business because I leave nothing to chance… until a dark-haired, hazel-eyed spitfire crosses my path.

She and her sexy-as-hell striptease were supposed to be a one-night distraction. But too late I noticed the branding on her back and my blood ran cold. This woman wasn’t a distraction—she was a death sentence.

Knowing who she was left me no choice. I took her on as my client. But running from her past wasn’t an option.

The Marines didn’t train me to retreat. They taught me to engage.

One shot. One kill.

About The Author:

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously? Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never rely on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.
