My Book Boyfriend #14

Wednesday, April 20, 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.

Now on to the shirtless pics.........

Finn from Stay

He had cargo shorts on, no shirt.  Tousled black hair, the scruffy start of a beard, the kind of eyes you'd call sweet. 

(My pick for Finn is my favourite male model Mario Teixeira.  I am having trouble typing this post and trying to wipe my drool!) 

Finn is one of those good guys who likes to walk around shirtless.  Just a genuinely nice person who loves his family.  He works with his brother running a sailboat.  Is sweet, a great listener and the type of guy that makes you feel safe and happy.

The radio that had been playing was off now.  It was quiet between us, too.  Finn was looking my eyes like he'd found something good  there, and I was looking back in his.  His face had started to look familiar to me.  I wanted to kiss him so bad, and you could feel that space where you knew it was going to happen.  I looked at his mouth.  I wanted to lean in to it.  Instead, my own voice surprised me.
      "I want to kiss you, but I want to look forward  to the thought of kissing you for a while first."
      "I know exactly what you mean," he said.  "Exactly."

"I had a great idea," I said.
I was looking at his mouth.   He had a terrific mouth.
"I wonder if that is the same great idea that I had," he said.
"You think-" But I was interrupted.  He kissed me then, finally.  A sweet, sweet kiss.  A delicious, perfect kiss that made me think of peaches and summer and days you go to sleep late. 

(Look ladies I finally posted a pic with a guy wearing a shirt for a change.  He is still hot)


But he was smiling.  He was like one great big Sunday afternoon - the kind where you stay in your p.j.'s and watch movies and eat popcorn.  Where life is at its uncomplicated best.


What do you think of Finn?
I know some of you are fans already.
I hope these pics made you day.

Thanks Missie for hosting this meme.  And NO you can't have Finn ;)

I love the pics you chose--and though I haven't read Stay (I may need to remedy that), I'm thinking it's hard to go wrong with "tousled black hair!"
