My Book Boyfriend #4

Wednesday, February 9, 2011



My Book Boyfriend is hosted by the awesome blogger Missie at The Unread Reader.   What is My Book Boyfriend you might ask.  Well it is a weekly meme where we talk about a literary crush including stats, a picture of what you imagine he looks like and some quotes from him that make you swoon.  If you are interested in participating please check out Missie blog The Unread Reader.

Shane Collins from Morganville Vampires


Shane is funny, protective, snarky in a loveable way, loyal, gorgeous and one of those guys who doesn't realise how awesome he is.  He can be really sweet but he likes to hide that side.  Plus Shane can also cook a mean chilli!

 
Some of my favourite quotes:

"God, I needed you," he murmured. "I can't even tell you how many times I thought about this. The funny thing is, I don't need you any less now. I think I need you more."
Carpe Corpus by Rachel Caine

"Did you see my ninja move?
That was fast, right?"
"You are not a ninja, Shane."
"I've watched all the movies. 
I just haven't gotten the certificate from the correspondence course yet."
Ghost Town by Rachel Caine

He leaned back, eyes half shut, and he was smiling. Shane didn't smile all that much, and it always left her breathless and tingling. There was a secrecy about it like he only ever smiled at her, and it just felt... perfect."Claire, you're being careful right?" He smoothed hair back from her face. "Seriously. You'd tell me if you got into trouble?"
No trouble," She lied, thinking about Monica's not-so veiled threats, and that glimpse of Shane's dad seated across from Oliver in the coffee shop."No trouble at all"
Good" He kissed her again, then moved down her jawline to her neck , and, wow neck nibbles took her breath away. She closed her eyes and buried her fingers in his warm hair, trying to tell him through every touch how much she liked this, like him, loved...
Her eyes came open, fast.
She did not just think about that.
And then, maddeningly, he let go and leaned back, lips damp. He licked them, watching her, and then gave her that slow crazy, sexy smile again.
Go to bed" he said " Before I decide to come with."

The Dead Girls Dance by Rachel Caine

I'm crushing on the version of him NOT depicted on the cover of Bite Club. *shudders*
I need to catch up on the series before Bite Club comes out, though, so here's hoping there are more swoon-worthy moments!
