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.
Jamie from This Gorgeous Game
My heart begins to pound. He's bouncing a soccer ball - knee to knee to instep to knee - diagonally to my right. It's difficult not to move closer, like he suddenly has me in his gravitational pull, and I can't help but admire his dark features, the way his T-shirt shifts against his body as he moves, so fluid, so graceful and quick to meet the ball as it ascends, descends, ascends with every bounce.
Jamie is one of the nice guys. A student at university, part of the local church comedy group and the type of guy who will be there for you no matter what.
Little by little, Jamie's fingers creep closer to mine, until our pinkies touch, then wrap around each other, and soon one, two, three, all our fingers are entwined. We stay like this, touching fingers, brushing palms, pulling apart for different prayers and rituals, only for our hands to find each other again, all the while staring at the altar, at the priest.
I lean forward and say to Jamie, "Kiss me again," and he does and I am saved.
My review for This Gorgeous Game will be posted this week.
Thanks Missie again for hosting this meme and giving me a reason to post shirtless pics!
