My Book Boyfriend #9

Wednesday, March 16, 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.

Patrick from Fixing Delilah

"He lifts my chin until our eyes meet and his lips brush over mine, soft at first, dandelion seeds blown against my mouth like a wish, and then....completely. Hungry. Suffocating and desperate and I don't want it to stop. I've never been kissed liked this before - not by Finn or the celebrity crushes in my head. Not even in my craziest dreams"

Patrick is the gorgeous guy next door.  He can sing and play the guitar.  I seem to have a weakness for this and what girl doesn't!   He even got accepted to college for music he is that talented.   He helps out with his Dad's construction business during the summer (which means a few sexy shirtless scenes).  Loves Catcher in the Rye.   Has honey colour eyes and some playful dimples. And most importantly is just a great guy.

Model Arthur Sales is playing my Patrick. 
I actually imagine him having more of honey colour hair and eyes but other than that I think he is perfect.

Quotes:
"He lets his thought fade as his eyes sweep over mine, down to my mouth.  His hands cup my face, and the ground - in the sneaky way that grounds have - drops from beneath my feet.  I can't hear anything but the sound of my own breath, needy and hot and a little suffocated.  I feel my body pulling to him, everything uttered between us building to this, magnets on the fridge, and I don't consider the possible complications, because his eyes are right now on my face, closing, eyelashes casting half-moon shadows on his skin, and -"

"Doesn't matter how many people are in the crown anymore, Delilah. Ten or ten thousand, I'm still only singing for one"

"He moves down a rung to check the second floor windows, the muscles in his tanned shoulders and arms tightening as he grabs the sides of the ladder.  I watch the way his bare back twists as his hands move along the wood frames searching for flaws and fractures.  I'm just spotting him, of course, in case he slips."


What do you think of Patrick?  Does he make you want to go read Fixing Delilah?

I have had lots of comments asking where I keep find these guys.    Well it takes lots of hard research searching the web for gorgeous guys at random sites.  Thanks again Missie for hosting this meme.

Nomes said...

He's mine too :D

Doubly more so after having such a perfect visual :)

I need to book mark these posts for future reference ;)

Jacinda (The Reading Housewives) said...

I loved Patrick! :) And the last quote made me think "Hot guy on a roof!"

Somewhat of a serious (actually it's not) question: Do you take super good notes/mark pages to come back to later? I'm starting to wonder if I should buy those post-it flags to use in books for better reviews and posts like these.

Savannah said...

Mimi said...

You had me at He can sing and play the guitar ::::swoon:::: Great book boyfriend Nic!

Missie said...

Nic, personally, I applaud your hard work at researching. Finding the perfect 'face' to build your book boyfriend is not easy, let me tell you. ;)

So this is the guy that kisses better than celebrity crushes in my head. I remember that from your review and it made me swoon back then and now again.

Can't wait to read Fixing Delilah so I can have Pat sing only for me.

Jenny said...

Wow I have to read Fixing Delilah now so I can experience Patrick. Love all the great quotes, but especially his confession to singing to one. Great post!

Spoliers:




Little Ricky was it? I can't remember. I'm going to talk about book Patrick, not the one in the post.

He was super nice and had deep. But what killed the book for me was that they "loved" each other way too fast. Yeah, they knew each other since kids, but come on! Give it a few weeks at least.
Rant over.
:)

Miss Page-Turner said...
