My Book Boyfriend #17

Wednesday, May 25, 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.

Book Boyfriend (aka shirtless men meme) is back.  Sorry I didn't have any posts while I have been away, I know how much you ladies like to drool.  I promise I will make it up to you.    Keep your eye out for a double book boyfriend which will be coming soon. 

This week however we the very swoon worthy Vincent from Die For Me 

He was breathtaking, with longish black hair waving up and back from a broad forehead.  His olive skin made me guess that he either spent a lot of time outside or came from somewhere more southern and sunbaked than Paris.  And the eyes that stared back into my own were as blue as the sea, lined with thick black lashes. 

(Model Mike Sharits)

Vincent is gorgeous, mysterious, sweet yet sexy and has a french accent.  What else could a girl want!


  I looked up over my shoulder and registered his sincere expression.  He turned me slowly to face him.  He gazed at me for a full minute with his big dark eyes, as if trying to memorize every inch of my face.
  Then he raised his hand to brush a lock of my hair back from my face, tucking it gently behind my ear as he lifted my lips to his.
  Our skin barely touched.  He was hesitant, as if he knew what he wanted but was afraid of scaring me away.  Our lips brushed, and I felt like a chord had been struck inside me, and my body was humming with a pure musical note....

Vincent was wearing baggy black karate pants but was bare foot and shirtless.  When he spun with the sword, his rock-hard abdominal muscles and broad chest rippled as he raised and lowered his weapon.  He was chiseled but not pumped up like Ambrose.  His body was perfect.

He leaned his head down to the side of my neck and held his mouth an inch away from ear, exhaling warm breath onto my skin.  I felt goose bumps rise all over my body as he slowly leaned forward and pressed his lips to the side of my neck.    I shuddered, and sighed instinctively as he began working his way with soft kisses downward, then move slowly forward to my throat.  When he got to the place between my collarbones, he paused and said. "Or maybe here...."........ 

(With a shirt or without shirt he looks good!  Although I prefer shirtless)

What do you think of Vincent?  Have you read Die For Me?

Thanks again to Missie for hosting this meme!

My eyes! I think all that hotness just burned my retinas.

Thanks Nic for the amazing Book Boyfriend post. Vincent is totally flattered. (And so am I!)

Jan von Harz said...

Ok Nic, I am definitely reading the wrong books. Vincent is really breathlessly hot, and the Mike the model is visually searing. Now I need to go take a cold shower!

Oh Lord... I can't even process this information properly. Those pics coupled with those passages (my fav ones, also) = EPIC SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION. LE SIGH. lol.

Misha said...

Those pictures are the best!

allstarme said...

J. Rosemary Moss said...

I haven't read Die For Me, but Vincent sounds like an excellent choice. And, I have to say, I like the shirt pictures every bit as much as the shirtless!

Jenny N. said...

The model you picked is gorgeous.

Julie said...

Yes, please sign me up for a Vincent of my own. Have him delivered to my house. Thanks.
