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.

Ren from Nightshade

Sexy, strong, charming, protective dangerous alpha male with a wicked smile. 
Need I say more?  I really can't resist those delicious bad boy types.  ______________________________________________________________________

Favourite Quotes:

When he whispered, his warm breath brushed over my lips. “Just let me kiss you, Calla. You don’t know how long I’ve wanted to. No one has to know.”
My lips parted as I drew a sudden, startled breath and in that instant his mouth was on mine, soft as velvet. I closed my eyes against the rush of a hundred wings that suddenly beat in my chest and soared through my body.
His scent was all around me. Leather, sandalwood, bonfires in autumn. He pulled back, but only for the sake of moving his lips to trail over my neck.

His sharpened canines traced my skin, scratching but not breaking the surface. My body quaked and I pivoted in his arms, pushing against his chest, making space between us.
“I’m a fighter, not a lover,” I gasped.
“You can’t be both?” His smile made my knees buckle.

This is where you belong, Calla.” He pulled me closer, tilting my chin up. “Be with me. Tell me it’s what you want.”
I couldn’t tear my eyes from his. “What I want?”
“Yes. Anything, everything you need, I’ll give you. Always. I promise. Just tell me one thing.”
“That you want this, us.” His voice dropped so low I could barely hear him. “That someday you’ll love me.”
My hands began to tremble where they rested around his neck. “Ren, you know we’re going to be together. We’ve both known that for a long time.”
He gave me a hard look. “That’s not what I’m talking about.”
“Why are you asking me this?” I tried to pull back, but he held me against him.
The glimmer of a smile appeared on his lips. “Why not?”
My temper flared. “Are you trying to say that you love me?”
I meant it as a challenge rather than a serious question, but his eyes seemed to catch fire.
“What do you think?” He touched his lips to mine, softly at first, gradually building pressure, parting them."

What do you think of Ren?  Who are you crushing on?

Loved the quotes you included!

Rachel said...

I haven't read Nightshade yet, but by the looks of Ren, I really, really should! Those quotes have got me sold as well <3

A.J. said...

There's a love-triangle in Nightshade, isn't there? WHY?? I mean, Ren sounds perfect. o_o

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Oh yes! I am so totally team Ren in this book! I am SO with you on this! A little too young for me, but I can wait... ;D

Anonymous said...

I love those quotes!! <3 good choice...

Jenny said...

Team Ren for sure! I actually liked Shay, I know a lot of people didn't, but the more I think about the book, the more I find Ren appealing:) I hope we get lots of him in Wolfsbane! Fabulous quote choices Nic, I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed him:)

A Canadian Girl said...

Love Ren! Shay has nothing on him! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Calla will pick him in the end.

What do I think of Ren??? Well that picture seems to be a young guy which might make me one of those cougar women....eeeeccckkkkk!!!!

Missie, The Unread Reader said...


I love Ren. I have never wanted to slap a character more than Calla. Did she really run away with boring Shay when she had REN?! GAH!!!!

You are killing me with that first picture there, mate. It looks like Ren is on the hunt. If only I was his pray. LOL

Alix said...

ah Ren, I did love Ren. It was one of those love triangles where I had such a hard time choosing (kind of like Calla). I can't wait for Book 2, especially after that ending!

Nice pick. I do love this meme :)

Lisa said...

oh swoon...I love Ren. I'm so glad you picked him over Shay!

Jenny N. said...

Truth be told I liked Ren way more than Shay.

Elodie said...

Awesome pick Nic !! I love Ren and I look forward to read Wolfsbane in order to have my Ren dose !! =)

Savannah said...

OMG YES! I love Ren. He left me speechless :)

Aleeza said...

Small Review said...

Ren sounds really good to me. I haven't read the book yet, but what is this girl's dilemma? How can there possibly be a love triangle when that guy is one of her choices? :P

Misha said...

I can't believe I have Nightshade and f=haven't read it yet! I need to read it and meet Ren! :)

Cited Heartache said...

I have read the Nightshade series and I must say that Ren is the hottest book character ever! I completely agree with you, though he's my number one, not number 5 ;)

Arianna said...

Team Ren, baby!!
